I realize I am obsessed...

I am completely obsessed with buying ribbon and beads!! I literally think about making jewelry and hair bows every single day! This wouldn't be a bad thing if I were actually selling the items I am making, which I haven't been lately. So now it's time for me to stop procrastinating and start looking at my options. I have been told Ebay is one of the worse sites, while it may be popular they charge outrageous fees. And there are all these other sites that I could join and pay a flat monthly rate, but they aren't as popular as the one I keep going back to, Etsy.

Now I have never actually had a web store but I have researched the ups and downs, pros and cons, the good and bad. I realize the store will not be an over night sensation (how great would that be if it was though!). It wouldn't actually be just my store, this is something my mom and I are starting together. So I will keep you updated on this whole subject. I am pretty sure there are going to be plenty of laughs, because both my mom and I are not very computer savvy.

If you have any information on starting/running an Etsy store please leave me a comment (or email me at OneMomsMoxie@gmail.com) with any suggestions or advice. It is greatly appreciated!
