856 Etsy Sales!

Today I reached 856 sales on Etsy and along with countless other sales offline it feels amazing! Next month on the 9th I will celebrate my one year anniversary of opening my Etsy shop. I am still amaze in less than a year how fair I've come. I definitely couldn't have done it without the advice of other amazing crafters, all of you who wrote about me on their blogs and having the guts to try things that others wouldn't think of, without knowing if they would be a success or I would fall flat on my face! Sleepy Robot 13 definitely put a hole in my wallet for a while, but before there can be feast there must be famine...or maybe I should just say it takes money to make money. I started Sleepy Robot 13 with 3 figurines (2 of which weren't even robots) and the hope that I could make a little money to pay my bills while I was out of work and today it's more than I could have ever hoped. My goal is to reach 1000 sales by my shops one year anniversary. 144 sales in 3 1/2 weeks, think I can do it?


  1. Congrats on your success!

    When I spoke with you at December's Last Minute Market, I didn't realize that this particular business was so new! You've come a long way and have done a great job of making adorable, creative creatures and getting your name out there!

    Hope you meet your anniversary goal!
