I have always been a jack of all trades and unfortunately, master of none. It used to embarrass me that I try to pursue so many different things at the same time without being great at any of them, but it’s time to embrace it! When I’m not obsessively filming my travels or writing, I’m crafting!
Most of my crafts consist of felt toys and learning props, dream catchers, jewelry and more recently decal stickers made with my new Cricut Explore Air 2!
I’ve actually wanted to open an Etsy store for a while now, but other than my felt creations, most of the things I make aren’t 100% original. It feels weird to buy pendants or resin flowers, potentially alter them and put them on hooks or chains and then sell them as my own.
Luckily, Etsy asks who made the product and you can say “another store”. This is what convinced me to put my stuff up. The resin floral earrings, which have been a favorite of mine lately take a lot of work and calluses. It takes a lot of strength and precision to pierce a hole and figure out how to hang the flowers on hooks in an appealing way, so I’ve gotten over feeling like I’m cheating!
The other earrings or necklaces that I just put on a hook will be marketed exactly as that, made by others. Although let me tell you, it takes a while to put 1,770 pairs of pendants onto hooks… it took me five entire days to be exact! Because when I’m not selling on Etsy, I’m signing up for weekend markets with the help of my charming and bartering assistant, Isaac!
Please feel free to visit my store and check out what I make! If you have any ideas for simple felt toys that I can make and sell, please leave a comment below! I’m still working on my logo and adding the rest of my products. You can follow my progress on my Facebook page, by favoriting the store on Etsy and *drumroll* on my new website, Everyfelt.wordpress.com.
