I know my posts are usually about my work or tips, but I wanted to take this post to thank some of the most amazing and supportive people in my life. I recently opened my Etsy site after much debate. (it’s http://www.etsy.com/shop/Scrapsecrets if you want to take a look : ) ). It wasn’t an easy decision and there are many people who helped me along the way.
First, I want to thank my brother and (future) sister-in-law. They have been so supportive! From the Starting Your Own Business books to their continued encouragement, they have been so helpful. I had been toying around with the idea of opening an Etsy shop and they helped me decide that this was the direction I wanted to go in. Johnny and Erin -thank you!!
A friend from high school also helped me out when I was preparing to open my shop. Melissa Fasolino gave me a bunch of great tips and advice for what to do before and after opening the shop. ( Check out her page at : http://www.etsy.com/shop/zucchiniandco). Thank you Missy for all your advice – it was so helpful!
There are plenty of other family and friends that have also been supportive along the way. I also want to say thank you to all of you guys! I really appreciate all of the advice, support and encouragement.
