Hard to believe, but Chicken Stitches has been on Etsy (a unique online marketplace for handcrafted goodies) for a whole year! It has been a wonderful experience. Like most of the things I get involved in it happened by accident.
We started this blog, I posted a few patterns, then I wrote down a pattern, that I thought was special enough to charge money for – it was a pattern for Tulips On My Hem dress.
So we opened an Etsy Shop.
Later on, one of my friends showed me how to bead. I made my first stitch markers. Then I made a lot more. My DH photographed my creations and we posted them on this blog. You – my readers, told me that they’re good enough to sell. So, we listed them in the Etsy Shop.
With time I acquired more skill. I tried different things and hunted down some amazing beads and charms. Eli too has discovered that photographing markers was an art in itself. Truthfully we are learning all the time. And loving it.
Did we make a ton of money? Not yet. But we are “running in the black”.
