Eesa Fashionista is in Business!

I did it!! I opened an Etsy account and with that, a fan page on Facebook.  It's been a little over a month, I've gotten 2 sales, 2 trades, and 700+ facebook fans (thanks to me participating in a bunch of giveaways as a vendor)  So, a little slow going but not completely hopeless.  And, SO not worth the pocket change I get for my time so far, but, it is fun and hopefully it will pay off in the future as my business grows.  But for now, helLLlloooOOOoo slave labor!  For some reason,  a seamstress's time is somehow less valuable than any other person's.  Who wants to shell out $40 bucks for a dress when they can buy one for $10 at Walmart?  Of course, one dress will be unique and quality workmanship and made in the US where as the other is cheap, tacky and made in China :)    

Now, I'm not sure I'll ever catch up on posting my work.  I'm about 20 posts behind and every moment of free time is spent in the sewing room.  My house is looking messier everyday!
