It's been a busy time....choosing yarn....sketching....swatching....making....photographing
and then posting....pinning....Instagraming...promoting
It's been exciting creative work that I love. It absorbs me, constantly keeps my creative wheels turning, and has provided new connections with other people (mostly through social media)
it's also discouraging at times...I'm trying to sell wool and alpaca winter accessories....in May.
So that explains a lot - it's just not time yet for people to care about and buy these things.
So I'm adding some fun organic cotton beanies to the shop for spring and summer, just to see if I can scare up some business, but if not, that's OK.
And starting up a small business takes a lot of hard work and perseverance and even more courage!
But the point of all this is to enjoy the creative challenge and make connections....that's the essence of this silly little Etsy shop called Tinker Creek Handknits.
