And we're LIVE!

So, it's official, our Etsy shop is now open and Live! Our shop is called '1luckysewandsew'.
The link is www.etsy.com/shop/1luckysewandsew

I love it. I'm scared. I'm excited. I'm nervous. I'm a big mixing bowl of emotions right now.

I don't think I ever realised that so many different emotions would be involved in starting a business. I think it's because I fall in love with each and every piece that we make, and I am so nervous/anxious/excited about what people's reception of our things will be, and whether people will like them or 'get' them or more importantly, like them enough to Want them. I am scared of failure, afraid of rejection, worried about people's opinions. But I am just so determined that this will work. 

Along with all of that, there is a hidden pressure of needing this to work. I haven't been back to work since having my son 18 months ago. One reason is because I was a self employed tattooist before being a Mummy, so it's not really a position I could walk back into easily. Another reason is because I couldn't afford child care. And most importantly, and selfishly on my part, is that I just couldn't bare it. I had a child because I want to bring him up and teach him things and be the person he wants when he's tired or hungry or scared, not a stranger that he has to spend time with because mummy's off at work. So, if this doesn't work, I will have to go back to work at some point soon, and I really don't want it to have to come to that...

So far, we have had a few favourited items, and more views than I expected, so I am trying to remain optimistic!

I have made a special 20% off coupon code across our Etsy shop as a special thank you to family and friends, and would like to extend it to (any?) readers of my blog. Simply use code 'LUCKYSEWANDSEW' at checkout.

I better get back to the sewing machine now, we have a potential exciting new prospect on the business front, so I need to shake a tail feather :)

Have a good rest of the weekend! X
