All my life I’ve been making things for my friends and family. And almost as long as that, they have been saying that I should try and sell the stuff I make and try and make a living out of it. I don’t think the last will ever happen, but I did open a shop a few months ago on Etsy. At first only for the pattern for the skirt guards. And I was so amazed when people not only found my little shop, but even bought the pattern. And still, every time someone buys it, I’m so thankful and it gives me so much joy.
Then, when I was going on, making new stuff, I started to put those items on Etsy too. For example this flower scarf:
It was sold within a few days, and then the strangest thing happened. Someone asked if it was possible to make another one. And while I was answering her mail, another message came, asking the very same thing.This was totally new for me; people who I don’t know, who live on the other side of the planet, asking me to make something for them!
So on my table right now: lots, and lots of flowers, waiting to become a scarf.
