Pat on my Back


So I haven't had a sale in awhile and I was hoping this would be a busy time for me on-line. Since I haven't been spending any time on the Etsy forums lately I haven't even been getting many looks or hearts so I've been feeling a bit sorry for myself. One of my favorite things to do when I'm feeling this way is to go back and look at my old feedback. Please indulge me for a few moments while a record a few of my favorites here for my own confidence boost.

I absolutely love this scarf! It was going to be a gift, but I just can't give it up.....all mine! Thanks so much!

I love this..it's so original and funky design too...thanks so much Paige.

Thank you so much. You'd have to see and touch this scarf to really know how wonderfully made it is. Thank you again.

Oh, this is a wonderful and striking wrist cuff. So colorful and so well made. Couldn't be happier!

Thank you for the wonderful wrist cuff, I love it, it's really cute. Great transaction, many thanks again!!
:)

This is the cutest little girl scarf ever! I have a neice who is all about fashion and this is going to be a gift for her. She is going to love it!!! Beautiful!!!!

Yes, fall in love is the name for this georgous scarf. I'm in love and the weather will be getting chilly here soon...so thank you very much!

I've been using the Gypsy Rose Scarf almost daily since I received it. I love it. Thank you.

Lovely work! Colors are perfect and true to picture. My kids keep "borrowing" it for themselves. :D

i received the scarf quite quickly and it is warm, cozy and absolutely BEAUTIFUL! i love it, and have been wearing it every day!



It's pathetic I know but it's important to stay positive and for me this is one of the best ways I know. The scarf above is the first scarf I ever sold to anyone on-line. I had under priced it pretty badly so it actually sold almost immediately. It gave me a good boost though and I learned pretty quickly to value my work more. Please share your techniques for getting through a dry spell in sales if you have ever been in one. I'm sure I'm not the only one who could use them.

Aww I do the same and look at my feedback and smile =D. You'll get sale soon no worries your stuff is very cool. I'm in the middle of a pause myself but I use the time to brainstorm and create with a large cup of steaming hot chocolate and marshmallow... I also ask my friends and families opinions on my work and their honesty drives me to better every design.

=D

It is very hard to be inspired when sales are low. (Trust me, I know the feeling!) I think your shop is lovely and looking at your feedback is a positive step toward getting your positive thoughts flowing!

The colors in the scarf are awesome - so bright, vivid and uplifting! Here's to a good new year for all of us! Think January is always a little slow for online sales - we just have to keep networking it, baby!! :)

What amazing feedback...I look at my feedback when I am feeling this way too...helps keep me going! =)

Sedie said...

Don't worry to much. I heard from a retail person that January is the slowest sales month of the year so it's a good time to do other things. I tend to build up my inventory, work on my blog and website looks and educate myself as much as possible on what I can do to further my business. . You'll be back to normal in no time! :)

We all need the occasional pat on the back to let us know we're doing well, it's human nature. Your products really are pretty and you deserve to pat yourself on the back!

ESCUDERO said...

Actually you do deserve a pat on your back - this scarf is gorgeous! Good job!

Anna said...

Your scarves are beautiful! I know what you mean, though! I thought I'd be busier, but at least I sold a few higher end pieces.

Ah dry spells...It's like I live in one. Sadly, I don't have much to add, just that I sucked it up and added more stuff. But then, being a new Etsisian pretty much leaves me with that.

I love this post--I wish I had half as many wonderful comments on my etsy shop as you do!!! Keep up the excellent work!

Also, I chose your blog for an interesting award--feel free to swing by and pick it up!

I do it too! =)

You aren't alone.

And you know when I get most of my sales? When I stop thinking and stressing about it. =D
