Etsy Frustration

I realize that I haven't been on Etsy very long (okay like a week) and I know it's going to take a while to get my business rolling.  It's just very frustrating learning the ins and outs and trying to figure out how to get my stuff out into the world so people see it.  It seems that people who stumble upon my stuff think its pretty good, but still no one is buying.  I don't think all that many have checked it out yet, either.  I also realize my stuff is pretty specific and will only appeal to certain people, and mainly to children who are not wandering around shopping on Etsy.  I just want to sell SOMETHING.  I just want people to like it enough to buy something.  For my own ego I guess. Haha.  I'm trying real hard to get some more stuff together to put up and maybe some more stuff that will appeal universally.

Anyway, I completed some more Halloween stuff and I'm working on a fall painting that looks really nice so far.  I made my paper dolls more of a playset.  And added a doll and a couple bags.  I thought these things would get more hearts than my illustrations because they are more substantial.  But, nothing so far.  Not even 1 heart. 

I gotta figure out how to get more exposure.  I think that is the key.  Anyway if anyone stumbles upon this site, Check out my etsy shop at


  1. It can be frustrating, I know. Keep on going though! I just tweeted about your Halloween paperdolls.

  2. Thank you so much! You're awesome.
