One year ago today I opened my Etsy shop: A Rose By Name. Though it started out very, VERY slow, it's been much better in the last 6 to 8 weeks. I've learned a lot about promoting and photography and marketing, but I still have an awful lot to learn! One day, hopefully, I'll be able to create beadwork for my livelihood instead of working for someone else!This was my first sale. It didn't come for about 6 weeks and it was to family, but it was the start.
