Five Years on Etsy

Five years ago yesterday, I set up my Etsy shop as part of my New Year's Resolution to try selling a few of the crafty things I make...

My life has changed hugely in those five years. Being self-employed is a lot of hard work but it's also wonderful and exciting, and I'm so lucky to be able to spend so much of my working life doing creative, crafty things.

To celebrate my five years on Etsy, you can get 10% off all orders from my Etsy shop until the end of 2011 with the code HURRAH - just enter the code when prompted during the Etsy checkout process and the discount will be automatically deducted from your order. The discount excludes shipping, but it includes items already on sale... and I've just added a whole bunch of new things to my sale section to make room for new projects in 2012.

P.S. if there's anything you've ever wanted to ask me about my business or about selling your work online, now's your chance! Add your question to this Etsy forum thread and I'll reply as soon as possible :)

Well done, your work is so colourful and such creative ideas.
Its been a little slow for my etsy shop, but I am not giving up just yet.
I received your new book all about making lovely gifts with felt, I am enjoying it very much.
Happy New Year. Julie.C

you don't know how much inspiring you are, for a little crafter with big dreams like me :) if my etsy shop will reach even a 1% of your success, I'll be the happiest girl on earth! I wish you a very happy new year, full of achievements and joyful crafting :)
