Last year, at about this time, I decided to take a big leap. I quit a stable part-time job that I loved and started making pottery full-time. Looking back I am amazed at what I accomplished:
-I participated in 10 shows all around Colorado, most of them over the holidays.
-I filled 54 orders on Etsy and made four times more in sales than I did in 2014.
-I gained 140 new Etsy shop favorites (nearly doubling what it was before).
-My work was featured in a magazine.
-I started selling in 2 additional galleries.
-My Facebook page nearly tripled in likes and response over the year.
Those are numbers that I can look back on, but what makes me really proud is that my customer reviews are still 100% positive and I know that I really worked and tried my best with everything I did. I couldn't have done anything without the help of my many wonderful supporters so THANK YOU! I am looking forward to growing even more in 2016! Here is a little taste of what I will be working on:
I feel so lucky to have been working on my art this past year. I know that I have grown immensely and will continue to do so.
