One day a friend of mind asked me why I didn't sell my artwork on Etsy.com. I was clueless as to what Etsy was, but after looking at it, it didn’t seem that hard. I was already running an online business and thought I could easily give it a shot. I posted a few pieces on the site and within the first week I had my first order. It was for $300 and I was ecstatic. I kept going with it, one creation and sale at a time. That’s where I got my real start and I will forever be grateful to Etsy.
