...but I've been mulling something over for the past few weeks and although it sounds insane and may even BE insane I feel it's something I need to do.
I'm thinking about closing my Etsy store. Not forever, just temporarily. How temporary? I don't know yet. Depends on how long it takes me to wipe the slate, gather my thoughts and put them in motion.
Why? I've been wanting to streamline my products for a while and currently, between trying to give customers what they want, making what I like & making what I think fits, I feel my shop has lost it's focus. It looks & feels scattered (like my brain).
I'm thinking I'll take a few steps back, take a good look and then roll my sleeves up and dive back in when I know what I'm looking at and have a clear vision of where I'd like to be going.
As I'm writing this blog post I'm realizing that this is something I'm definitely going to do.
I can't help but think I may feel a bit relieved to be freed from my Etsy obligations, after being there for over 2 years, but we'll see!
Thanks for listening :-)
