First giveaway 

So I’m super excited! I’m doing my first giveaway. The necklace I’ll be giving to the winner is a gothic style cross with maroon tips and a champagne color that’s frosted over. There are a total of 10 beads, 6 clear glass beads and 4 mother of pearl round shell beads. 

Along with being super excited,Worry accompanies this feeling. Mainly because Im terrified that only 10 people will enter. This is just my anxiety kicking in. 

I am confident that this giveaway will be a success on getting Little Links out there and more people aware of my etsy shop.

ummm…. was that awkward?

So after i get my business cards, I’m feeling super accomplished. I remember turning to my husband and asking him. “Now what do i do?” His response ” you hand them out to people.”Then the realization that i have to give these out to people, that normally means that I have to talk to humans.

Now here’s a refresher. I am an introvert, I don’t like talking to people. It scares me, i get shy and i say weird things. I have no idea how to act normal around people. So the look of panic and horror on my face, must of been priceless.

I have a stack of cards in my wallet. We ended up going to Walmart. I get a little excited cause I’m thinking.” I am gonna hand out my cards. I am going to rock this, I am gonna talk to people”

So as were walking though Walmart I see this mother and daughter duo in the jewelry section, and I wanted to go up to them and give them my card. I have no idea what to say, my husband saw my wheels turning and he encouraged me to to go up to them and hand out a card. So I’m working up the courage, trying to figure out what to say, and trying to figure out if i should spark up a conversation. I’m 5 feet away from them ,and I cant do it. I mean what do you say “you font want to buy jewelry from this store, you should buy from me.” That doesn’t seem exactly nice to say. Do you just give them a business card and walk away. I have no idea how to act in this situation. (so if any one has any tips please let me know, muchly appreciated.)

I try to get my husband to give them my card, as he was about to they walked away. So of course I’m completely bummed, and disappointed in myself. So were walking though the store, and we keep running into this couple. She had this pastel pink hair, and some pretty cool tattoos.  They are laughing and having fun,and have such great energy. We passed them a few times and end up behind them at the register.

I’m thinking that this is it, this is my chance this is a sign. I go to reach for my wallet and notice my husband getting out of line. I figured that he forgot something. He ends up getting in a different line. I turn back around find the couple and I spark up a conversation with the pink hared lady, and i don’t have one awkward moment. I handed her my card, asked her to check out what I have and follow if she likes

As I’m walking away i get this warm prickly sensation. Just radiating though my body. I am so happy that I was able to talk to one person. I loved that prickly sensation, it felt so good. I’m not sure if I am even explaining what I felt correctly, but basically it was a sensation/feeling I had never felt in all my years.

To sum it up. I DID IT.

Etsy about me Page

So here I am doing research on how to run an etsy store. I’m reading everything I can find on Pinterest, and Google. Honestly that’s all I really know how to use. I’m reading  tips and tricks for your etsy business. I’m taking notes as well as having amazing ideas on what to do for promotions and I’m feeling pretty confident.

Then comes the part where I have to write an about me page. I first thought I could do it. It’s going to be easy right? I was so so wrong. I get to the about me section and my mind goes completely blank, I have no idea what to write about myself! The. I come to the realization I’m a really boring person on paper. It’s at this point I’m having a complete panic attack. I’m trying to figure out how to explain who i am, with out sounding like a total fake or a total crazy person. Those were the two extremes in my head.

I couldn’t put anything better then what was already up there. which was : “My name is Cher i like to craft:

Totally lame, and i couldnt think of anything better, Maybe a few colorful adjectives (ah ah do you see what if did there ). Then finally i had my ah ha moment. I was in the middle of sanding my pieces for my pendants , i knew what to say. I Jumped on the computed and let the words flow from my finger tips to the screen.

It turned out so amazing!!!!! To be honest im not sure how many people go and check out the about page at etsy. I will admit i never did. Now that i know what a challenge it was foe me. I am definitely going to start checking out the about pages for the shops that i frequently check out.

Feel free to check it out, Please let me know what you think!
