Jumping into Icy Etsy Water

Well… I finally gathered the courage to post items on Etsy.

Etsy actually makes having a shop quite simple, so that’s not what shackled my wrists. The idea of managing a storefront concerned me.

I opted to start small.

Worse case scenario, no one will buy anything, and I’m out only cents to post. The idea of dragging out the process to join Etsy wasn’t really about not selling as much as it was a worry about maintaining a shop. Let’s be honest, the fun part is making the work – not packaging, shipping, and anything else that’s clerical. Also, what if something goes wrong? What if I find that it’s a waste of time? What if it drains me?

So I decided to quit with the “what ifs.”
