Hi guys! I have exciting news, I opened my Etsy shop AHH!! Okay I actually Opened it a few days ago but didn’t have time to write about it lol. Still, today I will finally tell you all about it!I talked with you guys a couple of times already about this project and that I was really busy creating things, buying things ect. Let’s take you back to the start. I actually always wanted to start a shop from home, I can’t have a normal job because of all my mental problems and how it’s looking now I will never have so working from home would be great even if it’s just to keep me busy. At first I wanted a from home bakery webshop where people could order custom cakes and stuff as it’s something I’ve studied for. It was a nice idea but with the kitchen we have it’s not super ideal as it’s super small and I don’t have the equipment to make the cakes I want to make.

Then I saw things about Etsy and people creating handmade stuff and selling it. It didn’t seem too hard and then I started thinking okay but what do I want to sell? I love being creative but still I didn’t know what I wanted to be as a brand. Then all of the sudden it came to me. I started crocheting not too long ago and it’s a hobby I absolutely love. I can use my fantasy in my work, and do what I love. I always loved beanies as I have quite a collection myself haha so it was perfect!

I think I started planning for this whole thing in November. Buying things that I needed for shipping, thank you cards, wrapping, stickers and also free gifts. I also started creating a lot of things already. My plan was for my shop to open in the beginning of 2019 and so I did!

Right now I have 11 listings, 4 headbands, 4 beanies, fingerless gloves, a bracelet and a phone case. I’m very happy with them and I already see them involving and get prettier every time. I’m still busy creating and I’m also busy making velvet crochet scrunchies right now! I though a little bit about the name as well and it’s called:

MadeWithHooks!

I thought it was catchy and very appropriate, what do you think? I also have a little section on my blog’s menu with the title “shop” where you can find the information if you’re interested.

I’m super excited and it’s definitely a dream coming true, I hope my shop will kick off soon and I would love it if you’ll take a look at my shop! πŸ™‚

I hope you all love it and I will talk to you next time!

Much love,

SAM.

    Congratulations on opening your shop, As someone who also can’t work because of mental health and health problems I know how hard it can be to get the courage to do something like that. I wish you well for your new venture, and I can’t wait to check it out.
