After several years of contemplation, I have finally set up an Etsy shop! Blue Jay Bay is starting off small, with a handful of personalized watercolor paintings that are perfect for gift giving. Holiday shopping, birthdays, baptisms and christenings, keepsakes… you get the picture.
I am hopeful AND nervous… What if I get 35 orders at once?! Or, what if I go 3.5 months without a single order?! Only time will tell. Either way, I am excited to have gone through all the hurdles involved with setting up my own Etsy shop. I have registered as a sole proprietor for federal and state tax purposes, I have my billing stuff all in order, and have posted a handful of listings to get myself launched as an online shop. I have written an “About Me” page, painted a pretty blue jay for use as my shop logo, and am now hashtagging my stuff on Instagram and Twitter.
Please stop by my new shop, and feel free to leave me some feedback!
