I'm OPEN for Business

I finally listed items on my Etsy shop today (http://www.iflookscouldquill.etsy.com/). I created the shop about three weeks ago, but it has taken me soooo long to get up the courage to actually list. I know this may sound funny to some, but I've been my own worst enemy with self-torture talk such as "what if no one likes my stuff" or "what if I fail at this and waste money" (okay, so it's $0.20 to list an item - like I'm really sacrificing a ton here). But, I overcame my fears and have listed my first items.

Here is the cutest little fat chef in the world:I like him so much that I am just going to have to quill another one for myself. I really like how he turned out. The design was by my lovely and talented sister, Jennie. She is an embroidery and primitive stitching designer (artist extraordinaire, really). You can check out her stuff at her website - http://www.homeberries.com/. She is going to feature my little chef guy on her website until I created another quilled creation from one of her other patterns. Oh the pressure! (Just kidding - I love doing it and am thankful that she's allowed me to use her designs).


  1. I am so excited about your etsy shop!!

  3. Whether it's a craft show or Etsy, I alternate between worrying that I'll sell out too quickly or no one will ever buy a thing. No reality in my head, for sure!

    Your work is fantastic - found you through the Maniacs Paper Flickr group.

  4. Thank you on your kind compliment Stefani. I would love to quill custom orders. I just don't know how to break into that market.
