I've been taking my store seriously, posting everyday and promoting it for about 3 months now. I made about 70 sales and some money. Most of it was in paypal, then went into our bank account. I'm really happy about how things are going, mostly from a "people like my work enough to want it perspective".

However, today, I bought a new dell laptop and a new dell printer and I paid for both of them out of my paypal account. together they were about 750$.

It's all money that I made on Etsy. I'm so proud of myself, not just because people like my art, but because I'm making money out of making art - enough money to buy a printer and a lap top.

Though I do have another computer, it's the first time I'm buying a new computer for myself. I'm really excited about that as well.

Thank you Etsy for giving me the arena to make this happen. Also thank you for me for sticking to it any making this happen. I feel so empowered now it's almost scary!
