Figured It Out

I think I figured it out.
I think the reason I have been so down is because 1) we need rain and the dryness in AZ makes me depressed...and my skin all flakey and nasty.
2) My designs don't sell very well.

A random photo of me and Captain Hook at Not So Scary Halloween at DisneyWorld last October. I added it to make me happy because there is nothing better then DisneyWorld, Captain Hook and Halloween!!

I have a few designs in my etsy shop that are staples. They sell so well. I almost get tired of making them because of how many times I have had to make them.
But when I make one of a kind items, they don't sell so well. I don't know why. I try my best to make them pretty and of high quality and for a reasonable price. Yet for some reason they don't sell. When I have a sale in my shop they sell, but I can't keep selling my pieces for the less then what it costs me to make them. That doesn't make any sense.

So what do I do? Do I take a break? An inspiration vacation?
I need some help here. If my one of a kind pieces sold as well as my made to order pieces I think it would boost my confidence and help me out of my funk.
Maybe today I will bring my sketchbook to work with me and sketch new designs.


  1. I know what you's tough. Really easy to get down about lack of sales. If you figure out the answer, let me know! All I know to do is just keep plugging along...

  2. Amy you sell lots of original pieces. I can hardly sell any. It really is a downer. :(
