All I need is one more internet addiction, right? So thanks to everyone's encouragement last month, I decided to make a few purses and open my own Etsy shop. I just started with four and we'll see how it goes before I invest every last penny into this.
I'm not telling you this so you'll go buy my purses...it's almost better that people I know don't buy them. I'm embarrassed by my flaws. I think I'm way better at design than carry-out. Plus...if you made them, I may not buy them either. Mostly because I would look at it and think, I can make that. I just wanted everyone's input and encouragement. I've always wanted to do this kind of thing and I'm always really insecure about it.
I am, however, really proud of my little shop. I even took the pictures myself. Including the picture at the top of my shop. I'm really happy with how it turned out.
I named it Butterscotch Alley. My great-grandma and grandpa Stowell always had this cute red candy dish filled with butterscotch candies. The dish is the one pictured. I named it for that memory. I realize butterscotch has nothing to do with purses, but I may decide to venture outside of the realm of purses at some point.
So without further ado...here it is: www.butterscotchalley.etsy.com. Visit at your leisure.
