Counteracting Business Blues

DSC_0348

Whatever you do, or dream, you can begin it. Boldness has genius and power and a magic in it.

-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Currently reading Craft Business Power: 15 Days to a Profitable Online Craft Business by Jason and Cinnamon Miles to counteract my craft business blues and this was a quote they have listed in chapter 1. I think that this is a powerful message but I am repeating something a little more powerful from the paragraph above it…

“I am going to learn to sell online.”

I am not a business woman, I am however a crafter who loves what she makes and loves selling to people who love them too. To be completely honest, Youmacon 2013 was a bust in sales. I brought all these little guys home with me (as well as 85% of my other stock) and put them away in shame. I haven’t thought about them since. However they came out again today as I was working in my studio and the disappointment from the convention – along with all the other orders that haven’t come through – is coming back.

That’s life for ya.

I can only mope so long about this before looking for a solution. The first step I have chosen to take is reading this ebook.

Thanks for reading!

Brain Takos!

Despite it being so close to the convention I have pulled off making a couple more Brain Tako! In case you missed my last few posts about them, the Brain Takos are my amigurumi octopus hair clip pals which are made from cotton yarn. These guys are bigger than Tako-san but not as big as Tako-kun. You can see the comparison in my Brain Tako! post.

Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Turquoise, Blue, Lavender, Pink, Light Pink and Peach.

After Youmacon is over, the Brain Takos will be added to my Etsy shop as a regular item~! So stay tuned! :3
