A set of lions

Last weekend I made my first custom order ever!  It was pretty fun actually :)  A lady wanted a set of lion cards, just like the other watercolor animal cards I have in my Etsy shop.

I've had quite the dry spell with my shop this year.  Until the other day, I hadn't sold a thing since last December.  So I decided to take a few risks and actually pay Etsy to feature some of my stuff.  Looks like it worked!

I've decided that if I want to make this work I have to take more risks.  Naturally, I am not much of a risk taker, so I think this will be good for me :)

Just a question for those of you with Etsy shops....  How do you promote your shop?  Have you had any luck with advertising?   Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks!


  1. I love the colors on the lions. Most of my Etsy advertising is through my blog, and Facebook. There are link parties for Etsy shops too.

  2. Congrats. I'd love to hear more details on how your Etsy sales are doing as your business grows. Love the cards.
