Do You Dream About Your Shop?

It seems like once or twice a week a dream I have involves my Shutter Buddies somehow. Last night I even had a dream about the forums here(except I can't remember the deets, darn!).

I sometimes find it hard to shut my brain off when it's time to sleep. Do you as well? Do you dream about your business often?

I've only had a nightmare about it :) Nothing happy! :) I'm always glad to wake up from those...
I dreamed someone wanted 100 headbands for birthday party favors. The stress was killing me!

I have had dreams about my shop, although I have to say one freaky one really stands out. I dreamed that not only did I have a sale but I also dreamed a specific item sold, a one-of-a-kind item. I woke up and checked and sure enough, that item had sold. Shudder!
Once in a while. More so I have dreams about what I am creating.
I've had dreams about my shop. Mostly it's been dreams about people (usually repeat customers who already loved what I did!) leaving me negative feedback. Sometimes I dream I got a few sales and wake up and have none, which is always a tiny bit disappointing.

I have trouble shutting my brain off when it's time to sleep... always thinking about something. :)
I haven't dreamed about my shop yet, but I haven't been doing it all that long. I'm sure it will happen though. I still have that dream from college where you have a final exam and somehow you forgot you were ever registered for the class.
I dreamed I made a few sales and then woke up dissapointed lol
My 'ridiculous Etsy dream' was closed a couple of days ago (boo!)- cause' it`s not business topic'.

well.... i did have a lame dream about people flagging my shop because I had 'shady; payment options and something else.

I think it`s totally business related showing how much we care about the shop and overthink it. Also I tend to see Etsy stuffs more,when I hang out in business forums here and try to soak up all the good info and tips and have fun with pseudodrama :P

so yeah... I do have a life outside of Etsy, but it still sneaks into my dreams here and there.

My work room is the other end of the house, so that if it happens to be 3am and I'm dreaming of the latest fabric creation, I can crack on and do it! I think it's part of the Etsy Curse, adoring your shop so much that it takes over your dreams where Jonny Depp and Caribbean Holidays should be instead!
