If you’re a DIYer or a crafty person at all, you’ve probably thought about opening up an Etsy store or selling your crafts somewhere. Maybe you’ve even tried your hand at this before only to get burned out after the first 10 orders. Or maybe you didn’t even get any orders! It’s one thing to make crafts for fun, and a completely different thing to sell crafts for money.
When you’re just making crafts for yourself or as a gift for a loved one, time really isn’t a factor. I mean, within reason, of course. But you don’t mind spending long hours making the perfect quilt or stitching a detailed scarf. It’s a joy to know you’re making the very best thing for a friend or family member!
