I finally did it!

After a lot of encouragement, I've finally taken the leap and opened a modest online store to sell some of my crochet items.

I was tossing up whether or not to make an Etsy store, and to also try selling on ebay, but I've decided the best way for me is to simply go with a facebook page because so far all my customers are friends and family. Facebook seems like the most sensible option, and there are no fees involved. I've seen others sell crochet this way, so maybe I can too?

For the last 2 years I've been making crochet items to give to family members for birthdays and Christmas presents. Some people have asked for more and have offered to pay. I've been very nervous about accepting these offers for work, as my anxiety is holding me back. I worry that someone might be very unhappy with my work once they pay for it. Giving crochet as gifts has been a very safe option for me.

So (gulp) here goes a try at making some work for myself. Wish me luck, please <3
