My first sale!


Yipee! I'm walking on air! I've been a little discouraged these past few days, wondering if I got myself into something ridiculous and somehow misinterpreted the opportunities God has created. Wednesday afternoon I checked on my etsy shop (which I admitedly do many many times per day!) and saw that an item was missing. I figured I must've left it in edit, somehow, though I didn't think so because I'd just listed it a few hours before. It took a minute before I saw on my front page: 1 item sold. Disbelief and excitement swept over me!

My very first buyer is a fellow etsian seller (and excellent scrapper) who I have been chatting with for the past month. How wonderful that my new friend is my first customer- yeah Gina! I'll add her shop link as soon as I figure out why my silly blog isn't allowing me to edit my linke :).

Just wanted to share my wonderful news with you and here's hope and a prayer that I have many many more sales to come!

CONGRATULATIONS! I remember when I made my first Etsy sale (it was so exciting). Everything in your shop is so cute, I'm sure you will do well.

Congratulations Jen! I remember the excitement of my first sale too. I had forgotten all about Etsy because I opened shop last Nov. I didn't get my first sale until this April! YIKES!
I'm so thrilled for you!

Hi Jen! That is the taggy blanket I was telling you about that I thought would go over very well on your Etsy shop! Did I tell you about it, or did I dream I told you? Connor has one of these. They're wonderful!! Glad the business is coming along. I'd like to order a blankie for my niece who's expected to make her debut in October but still waiting on my sister's color choices for the room.
Love,
Theresa
