I can do this...I think.

Alright! After much self doubt and moping, I have renewed drive to make this etsy thing work!

Throughout July I have been beating myself up. I've only had a couple sales all month and have let it become an excuse to be depressed and not create. Hey stupid! No one is gonna buy anything if you don't make it! I have made a few things, but nothing close to what I should have to show for an entire months worth of time. Without further ado, here are some of my July critters!

My favorite, a zebra-corn!

Some random charms...

And a cutesy pink dragon that I was testing out blending on.

I made a couple more gem dragons as well! Just four more colors and the set will be complete! Of course, that will make it a set of 13. Is that bad luck?

Phew! That's a lot of pictures! I'm going to try and stay motivated so I can post more often, and not just about my own products. I am working on a really cool looking asian dragon tealight holder. I think I got a little overzealous making him. You'll see what I mean when I post him!


  1. Becca, don't give up!!! It's tough getting started, it takes a long time before people can even find you or know where to look. Believe me, I know. And I'm sure the majority of us artists trying to make ends meet by selling our creations have been where you are now. Your critters are adorable, you've got talent and imagination. Just keep creating - and be patient. :)
    Have you looked into other options other than Etsy?

  2. Awww thanks Kristy! I really needed to hear that. I know I am just starting and need to be patient, it's just hard to remember that sometimes! I'm doing my first craft fair at the end of August so we'll see how that goes. Other than that it's just etsy for now.
