I know I've checked out around here lately. I went through a little phase when I wondered if my time was worth it, if anyone even ever looked at this blog, if selling my work online would ever be profitable... The conclusion I came up with was maybe not. At first that stung. I feel like I've been working at this for such a long time and somehow I just am not where I thought I'd be. After more reflection I realized that the whole reason why I started selling my work online to begin with was simply because I loved making stuff. It wasn't to build a business, it was just to create things and put them out in the world. I think I lost a little bit of that love when I was trying to keep up on the business end. So now I'm back with a new perspective. I'm going to continue doing what I love and if I make a little extra money on the side, great! Hopefully that love will show through in everything I do. As a result of my new devotion to ReLove Projects I've posted some of my favorite cards in my Etsy shop!
Does anybody else ever feel this way about their craft business? What do you do to get past it?
