Well I wanted to find out.

I have learned quite a bit,

I have a new blog "Hot Items Of The Week"
I'm adding a few each day and learned a lot

Could you imagine selling 100 items a month or 50 a day? I would love just one a day!
Check out these great finds, and lets learn from them

I definitely have learned a ton from those who were successful before me, for sure. Wish that there were more threads with those sellers talking too.

One of the things that I really took to heart was trying to be professional in the forums, at all times, even when you are really mad. I think that was something that gemmfactrix always displayed.

Wow, i couldn't make that many items in a month! Perhaps the secret to those super successful shops is they spend less time in the forums...^.^ But I just can't tear myself away.

when I first pictures were terrible someone suggested that for them, natural light worked best and that is what we decided to do and it worked!

I've learned to just make what I make and not fret about other peoples fabulous designs and get discouraged that I didn't think of it! haha.
