A little panic attack

I have been keeping a secret for a while. Every time I think about it lately I start to have a panic attack. You are going to laugh when I tell you what it is because it is so silly that I am panicking over it. In March I am going to open an ETSY store where I sell aprons Jewelry, purses and some new things I have been developing. No big deal right my stuff is just as good as anybody else's stuff out there, I have done all my home work so why am I in a panic? I have no clue. Today I made some things to sell they are down right cute but when I went to price them I almost thought I was going to puke, I just froze in panic at the thought of selling my stuff. Crazy Crazy Crazy . Yes I am beginning to think I am crazy.

Some one needs to just smack me and tell me that I am being silly.

Rock on! I knew it, I knew it! Those product shots on the last tutorial were just too good, you know?

You will do fine. I still stress out, and I've been on Etsy for 3 years come April. If you got any questions or need some help, let me know. Oh, and check me out when you open, and I'll be your first heart.

Think of all the lovely bargain shopping and materials to make more wonderful things you'll be able to buy with all your lovely Etsy money!

Go for it! It's fun! I've never made a sale on mine, but I keep it up just for fun. You never know what will happen- some people have had really great success with it!

Yippee for you! That's sounds fantastic! I'm opening in March as well. I will add you to my favorite sellers! (I am an apron freak!)

I think it is always hard to put yourself out there.

I bet you will do GREAT!

Good luck!

Jen, you are so dang funny. You will do great, but it is a little stressful. Come up with a system on how you price, take the price of how much it cost for matrials and time and then add a percentage. You will do great!!!!

consider yourself SMACKED! That being said, I know how hard it is to price your own goods. I sell my mosaics at art shows (heavy to sell online) and I get sick each time I try to price something........
