I hate to brag, but I just have to share because I am so excited. I listed my first pattern for sale on Etsy and Ravelry for $1.00 per download. And guess what?! I have sold it twice already and it has been less than a week! I realize two sales isn't a lot of money, but it is definitely a start to being a successful designer/shop owner, and I am very happy with it so far. My Etsy shop also has things other than patterns. I currently have some 4x6 photo prints for sale as well. I hope to have some art prints of some of my paintings available for sale on there as well. Oh my gosh I am so excited!!!!!
