Five years ago today, I took a leap and opened my Etsy Shop! Happy five-year Shop Anniversary to me! It's been an awesome ride with lots of personal and professional growth so I'm taking this chance to celebrate!
I started with about 10 original paintings in my shop and I never expected to do as well as I did. I started out slow, very slow. I didn't have lots of money to put into it, so I had to grow a little at a time and that's what I did.
This is the first watercolor I ever sold. A happy green little pear! I clearly remember the excitement I felt with that first sale. It was awesome! Someone liked my art enough to buy it! That gave me the confidence to do more.
Here's my first Custom Painting- it was a doozy. 20 x 30 inches of Rooster!
And here I am with my Pink Feathers painting that is now being sold at Hobby Lobby! So fun to look back at my milestones and see how far I've come!
