Whoo Hoo! Its My Etsyversary!

Wow! How could I let this day go by without a little pomp and circumstance!

It was one year ago today when I signed up to sell on etsy. I found out about the venue about 6 months earlier, but like most people, I felt like "Who would want my stuff anyway?" After my son Cael was born, I decided to sell some of my knit baby hats online. I had 4 months off to enjoy my second newborn babe, and tons of time to knit! Nothing really happened, it took a loooooong while for me to get any outside interest in my shop. I had no idea what kind of promotion was needed. No idea about relisting, street teams, forums, blogs.... and it really wasn't until February when I found out I actually had no job to go back too that I started to formulate a plan to utilize this awesome venue to its fullest! I joined a couple of teams and got involved in the campaign for a Dolls and Miniatures top level category.

So, my little shop has grown. And I have met some really friendly and talented artists along the way. I even got my cousin to open a shop.

It has been really good for me, I am so happy to be creating my dolls again (people really like them!). And if you come over to the Pumpkinhaus, I'll perk you a pot of coffee, and.... talk your ear off about my etsy shop!!
