Personally Yours by Tasha

This is the year I will get my business off the ground.

This is the year I will bring smiles to people's faces with handmade, personalized gifts.

This is the year I will feel a sense of accomplishment.

This is the year I will stop being afraid of failure.

Several years ago, I decided to start selling handmade, personalized cross stitch items.  I spent hours deciding on a design for business cards.  I made sure I took pictures of all the projects I completed and had given as gifts.  I set up a Facebook page and an Etsy shop.  Then I got scared.  Scared that no one would like the items.  Scared that no one would purchase anything.  Scared of failure. 

Not anymore.  I'm done being scared.  I know that I will never make enough money from selling handmade items to be able to stay home.  I know that it will just be for extra money.  But for me, the sense of accomplishment means more than the money. 

Now I just have to figure out how to promote my Facebook page and Etsy shop.  I guess this blog post is one of the first steps!
