i struggle a lot with the self pimping as well. i can't help but feeling like i'm forcing myself & my stuff on people, but i guess you just gotta get over it. i don't think you come off as anything but genuine & lovely. it's nothing but nice to see what you're up to business-wise just like anything else!i'm so happy to see you seem to do well with the new etsy! keep up the good work & all fingers crossed that it'll grow & become all you want it to be.
Though I have had the pleasure of knowing you in real life, I assure you that you come off lovely and sweet online - like someone geniunely interested in spreading their wares to others for not just the sake of money.:)
if you follow me online at all you might not think it but i have a hard time with putting myself out there too. i remind myself that i am doing what i love, it's my job, and there's nothing wrong with shining a light on me and the things i make that i am proud of. you make beautiful things :) don't feel odd to step up and make a living at it or whatever else you want from it.
i totally feel the same way.. but you do a great job!
don't be shy, please leave me a comment!
