Three Month Anniversary

I started this blog and my etsy page on September 12, 2011. I was nervous and didn't have a clue what I was doing. I wanted to make things to sell, to have my own little business and have a place to show off crafty things for fun. I haven't posted a lot lately but thankfully that's because I've been busily making birthday boards for people. I'm still clueless about a lot of things and the learning curve is pretty big, but I've made progress and it's been SO much fun. Talk about a rewarding experience.

Remember my goal setting post? Well, I'm proud to say I've met two of my three goals. First, I posted a bunch of items to my etsy page (although it's currently bare, that's because I'm done until after the holidays, everyone ordering for Christmas wiped out any and all inventory). And second, I've made enough money to invest in a modest scroll saw. I'm thinking I'll scope out my local classifieds. My photography still needs a bit of work, but other than that 2011 has been a good year and a great start for Wooden Parlor.

I guess what I really want to say is thanks. I read so many other blogs and gathered advice from all over to help me. And I also want to say if you're thinking of starting a business or blog or whatever, I say go for it. It might not turn out like you thought, but then again, it just might.
