I opened my shop and listed all my new work and that day I received my first sale. This was all the affirmation I needed. This handmade life was for me.
I have since closed my freshman shop and opened my Lucky Jackson shop, focusing on making fun, happy art. I am such a lucky girl to be able to do what I love.
I want to give a shout out to Rob Kalin the founder of Etsy and all of the Etsy team who have made it possible for so many of us to live our dreams.
Thank you Etsy!
