Looking Back on 2008 for T and Little S

--I had my first Etsy Sale in April 2008.
--Created custom wedding scrapbooks, custom polaroid guest book, digital scrapbook via Scrapblog, baby shower invites, bridal shower invites, recipe books, Lego album, and more for Etsy and other online customers.
--Learned to love trading with other Etsy sellers via the trade games, secret shopper games, etc. Have long since dropped the games but still welcome a great trade!
--Branched out from just paper bag albums, premade pages, and other scrapbooking items to include most paper crafts and decoupage items for the home.
--Starting blogging at least a few times a week, if not every day, in the fall of 2008.
--Joined 3 Etsy Teams- EtsyMoms, EtsyColumbus, and EtsyScrap
--3 Consignment Gigs- The PinkMoonCupcake shops in Powell, Ohio; Smoothie Brews coffee shop in Pataskala, Ohio; and just recently PrimandPosh Boutique online!
--Did 2 local craft shows (in between family weddings, showers, etc.)
--Joined Artfire and Twitter to continue to market and look for new online venues.
--started setting monthly goals for myself, adding new items to my shop more frequently, etc.
--Ended the year with 375 positive feedback and 234 sales!! (mind you, some were trades and from the games, but they were still positive experiences that I learned from)

More great things to come in 2009!!!!
