08 Nov Little Luvins Etsy Site Launched Today!
Little Luvins has officially launched on Etsy and I’m pretty nervous about it. Starting something new is a tad bit scary and to be honest it took me forever to get the nerve to just do it. I started this business in May and it’s taken me until now to feel “ready.” I made up all sorts of excuses, “I don’t have labels yet, my products aren’t perfect or original, I need ___fabric still, I don’t have packaging.” The excuses were/are endless.
I know I need to start. To try. To put myself out there. I’m ready, but I’m not ready and I can feel the fear and self-doubt speaking louder than anything right now. I’m trying not to “turtle,” as my friend so affectionately calls it, and step out of my happy comfy shell. I know I’m opening myself up to the possibility of rejection, criticism, and lack of interest for the things that I’ve made, but I’m also making room for more connections, positive feedback, and sharing my love for sewing handmade goods.
Luckily for me, I’m married to someone who knows how to ever so gently push and encourage while making me recognize for myself that I am ready. I’m not sure how he does it (magic, hypnotism, whispers while I’m sleeping) but I’m thankful that he’s there.
So here’s my attempt to start. Way before I actually feel ready. I’m coming out of my nice comfy shell and I would love for you to join me along the way. My Etsy shop is up and running so I hope you’ll check it out. It’s my humble attempt to share my little luvins with you and yours, even before I feel ready.
Here are some of the products I’m selling:
Crinkle Toys:State onesies (not posted yet but coming soon!)
Burp Cloths:Minky Blankets:I’ll be adding more in the upcoming days/weeks.
Here’s to starting things before we’re ready!
