Etsy: Two Years Later

Daisies to the Rescue
My fine art print shop on Etsy has gained momentum this year. Photo prints, digital art, and canvas gallery wraps are selling weekly now. To say I'm pleased is an understatement. 

Best of all, though, is the privilege of connecting with people I would never have met the seamstress whose sweet daughter has cerebral palsy; the man who creates amazing wooden bowls from (for lack of a better term) tree knots; and the lady whose passion for Etsy rooted itself during a time of grief, when she needed something to occupy her thoughts and help her to focus on a future. Any income I generate from Etsy is wonderful, but it's the people who have planted me in that creative marketplace and grown me as a person.

To celebrate almost two years as an Etsy seller, I am offering a 15% discount on all items in my shop throughout the month of September. I currently have over 580 listings, indexed by colors to make browsing easy. 

To take advantage of the discount, simply use this coupon code at checkout: SEPTSAVINGS. Share this link with your family and friends (hint: Christmas is not that far off), shout it from the Facebook rooftop, and tweet it to your followers, please!

A big thank-you to all who have blessed me with your friendship, Etsy expertise, and purchases. Etsy is a fantastic marketplace, but it's YOU who encouraged me to work hard in those early months when sales were few and far between. 

Thanks so much!

  1. What a wonderful idea this is. I know what you mean about the people. I do love this site that's for sure and my sells are slowly climbing. do you write about your gallery warps or where you have them printed? I'm always thinking of the next item to list. I'm thinking of sets and calendars right now.
    peace n abundance,


So glad you stopped by!
