So, I am a few months into my Etsy Entrepreneurship journey now. I have made 9 sales so far.
While this isn’t a landslide amount of sales, I am a firm believer in slow and steady wins the race. And in terms of race length, this is a marathon and not a sprint.
I am looking forward to my next sale, which will take me into double figures.
For now, I’m all about analysing what is working best and then hopefully working towards making more of that!
It is always a great privilege to be able to make money doing something you love. If you have a hobby or craft that you would like to try and make a little money from, why not consider opening your own etsy store? If you use the following link, we will both get 40 free listings – this means that is effectively free to get going. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain!
If you open your own etsy store, do let me know, so I can come and check out your goodies!
So, I hope hearing about my etsy entrepreneurship adventure is either interesting, or inspires you to get started yourself!
Today, as we both say I do
I give of me what I ask of you.
I promise to always do my bit
To secure our loving partnership.
As days are spent and years pass by
I promise I will always try.
I’ll never disregard your thoughts.
I’ll always give you my support.
I hope we’ll always feel connected
Heard and valued, loved and respected.
May we remain an equal pair.
May we both always genuinely care.
So, as we go foward, united as one
May we be content, optimistic & strong.
May we know compromise, commitment & trust
And may we be forever happy to be us.

In life, there are few constants.
We face the ebb and flow.
People come and go.
But when you count your blessings
You’ll see, in joy and strife,
One thing you can rely on;
Family is for life!
When I go to sleep at night
Bathed in stars and palest light
I know an angel guards my room;
You might know him as the moon.
Without fail, as sun does set
My dreams and I are gently met
To be looked over all the way
Until we meet each bright new day.
Bedtime Wishes is a short rhyming poem for children, copyright Ms Moem.
This poem makes a great poem for mother’s day, especially for those with younger children. If you are a dad looking to get extra brownie points, you could do worse than presenting the mother of your children with this beautiful poem print.
I last took part in the colour collective just before they took their winter break, and somehow, the beginning of March is upon us.
For this piece, I chose to illustrate Belle from Beauty and The Beast (the 2017 film is out in a fortnight) and I used the colour as the background, to really make her colour pop.
The scan wasn’t the best but I quite like this illustration.
This is quite a mixed media illustration. I sketched Belle in pencil first before colouring her in with watercolour paint and a little bit of crayon.
The galaxy was painted with watercolours.
Then I scanned the two separate illustrations into my computer and laid them over the back ground with a couple of tweaks.
I think this would be a good piece to come back to when I have progressed a little further. If my linework was stronger, I feel that would improve the quality of my illustrations. Always good to have something to work on!
But over all, for what I think I’m right in saying is my 4th colour collective illustration, I am fairly happy with my Belle illustration! Check out the #colour_collective hashtag on twitter if you haven’t already!
