I'm lucky because I can do my craft anywhere. On the bus, sitting on the couch, waiting on line at Starbucks. I usually average a hat and a half a day, on the days I do my regular job, but if I'm on the couch watching TV I can do more than that. I never counted how many I get done in a week.
First thing I do in the morning is pick up iPad to check stats and pin and wanelo
I spend all day checking stats, thinking about new products, all evening while watching tv on teams, last thing i do is check my stats on ipad, sometimes i even check stats a 4 in the morn if i have a pee! even my son says that I spend a ridiculous amount of time on etsy for not so much income:(
Lol. ( just laughing about myself) , yes, " Hello, I'm Ira, and I'm totally workaholic . Doctor, I will still alive? " -)
If I'm not in my studio, I'm at home with my computer: adding, changing, offering, fixing my new stuff picture, what else...
Last week I only produced 3 new dresses and I sad, because I haven't made the pictures of them yet.
I tend to call this business a "lifestyle" because if I am being honest with myself, I am working in some capacity for the business from the time I get up until the time I go to bed.
It is my full time job, my husbands full time job and our eldest daughters seasonal job. I can't really put an hour timeline on it except to say 10 - 16 hours every day of the year. It sounds crazy to some, I am sure, but since I enjoy every minute of it, I would not say it is an actual job, altho it is actual work ..we all work very hard.
I keep a "knitting/crochet schedule" that requires that my husband and I each make 3 or 4 items every single day, whether we have orders to fill or not. When we have no orders to fill we build stock for the busy winter months.
