I have been struggling a lot the past few days trying to make a decision about my Etsy shop. I have been making headbands long before I knew what Etsy even was. I was browsing through all the talented shops that are our there and I found myself asking many questions.

Will people buy My product? (Because there are thousands of others just like it)

Will people think I'm a copycat?

Is it more trouble then its worth?

Should I list this?

Should I list that?

Putting yourself out there on the Internet is very hard to do. Anyone can send you there thoughts and feeling. They could be bad or they may be good. How do you deal when you get bad feedback?
Do you stand up for your product? Do you defend yourself? I love to be able to create fun handmade goodies for my friends and family and see how much they love it. But how do you take something that is a hobby and turn it into a business?? I guess I have all the time in the world to make a decision on the subject. But I can only hope that one day it will turn into a successful biz like Just.Lovely.Things but for now I'm happy with taking care of my family and home and sharing my stories with you through this blog.
