I sold the clutch that is my avatar on Etsy yesterday.
I'm thrilled to have sold it, but I'm also a little sad--and I don't know if I should change my avatar or not. I had been thinking about changing it to a skein of yarn, but I'm still not sure. (I will probably eventually make another clutch like the one that sold.)
I posted a while back about adding international shipping to my Etsy shop and it seems to be starting to pay off. My last two sales were international. (One of which was the clutch.) And hopefully there will be many more. I had been so scared of sending things out of the country, but it really is much easier than I had expected. The only thing I don't like about it is that I have to actually go to the Post Office, rather than sending it to work with Chris (who is a mail carrier).
