Well, I've got my pile of craft store Memorial Day coupons in hand and I'm ready to run the gamut.
Had another long conversation yesterday evening with Rich about the logistics of doing Etsy full-time. I think the only thing holding me back now is this idea I have of what a person is "supposed" to do.
Like, you grow up, get a job, and go to it (everday) and get your paycheck with insurance and a 401 (k).
I feel like I'd be doing something naughty by just crafting full-time. Like the universe would come back and bite me for not doing what the normal people do. I dunno. Maybe I'm just chicken :)
But, anyway, I feel like I need to do some things before I jump in, in any event.
Like, I need to get my own website up and running. This is a major expense (a start-up expense, if you will.) And I've been pussy-footing my way around with a lovely lady who has been extremely patient, but I'm just still tossing the idea around in my head.
Also, I need a professional photographer. I've been thinking of things I could do, like set up a deal where I ship a few pieces off to someone who shoots them with a better camera/model/setting ... but that would significantly raise my prices. Ugh.
What's a gal to do!?
Anyway, for now at least, I will worry about my forthcoming beach vacation and concentrate on getting a pedicure and buying travel-sized bottles of mouthwash, lotion and sunscreen :)
P.S. Here's a new HP feature for all you nerdy nerds out there!!
