After two years I reached 1000 sales! What can I say big hurray!

With full time job and family life it was very hard for me. Everynight I went to bed at 10 and awake at 2-3 am! Sew until 8 and after leave for to go work! Weekends laundry, shopping, some time with my son, go to camping and swimming almost every weekend! one whole year passed like that. I even think to close my store a year ago (I had around 250 sales). Now when I look back I'm so happy that I didn't close my store.

Now I usually make custom yoyo's for wedding decorations and accessories. When a lot of people ask me "Oh what is it for?", my beloved customers use them to create beautiful pieces like LoveCharlie: www.etsy.com/listing/38484162/mattie-flapper-inspired-fascinator-by and my other beautiful hearted customers : www.flickr.com/photos/nakpunar/sets/72157605542663220/

I love them soo much! I am so glad that I got a lot of custom orders and I am so glad because of it. When they get married I feel so nervous like I'm getting married! After how was the wedding, how everybody like your decorations chats and small gossips! The best orders are definetly custom orders!

My boss (83 years old) decide to retire and after a while my work will be close. Now I try to figure out can I sell full time Etsy? I have two more store here and try to fill them for the season ( nakpunar.etsy.com and sunnyfunnycreations.etsy.com ) Please wish me luck!

I believe everything starts with a hint of belief. If you really believe and work hard for that, why not?
Best luck to you!
