When I say ‘look what I made’ this week, my ‘mades’ have been around for a while. In keeping with my pledge to wear a fashion garment or accessory made or transformed by me throughout May. This week I chose to wear some of my ribbon jewellery; Thursday I wore a cream necklace and bracelet; Friday I wore one of my favourite creations a black and brown chunky link necklace; yesterday I wore my multi-coloured link bracelet and Sunday I had a lazy day and stayed with my jammies so no garments or accessories for Sunday. I’m looking forward to cracking out some different pieces this week.
|My first few days of Me Made May '14|
In uncovering these pieces I was conscious of having had them in my Etsy Shop for quite some time – and without an Etsy sale. I closed my Etsy shop toward the end of last year. There were a number of reasons for this, not least of all the lack of sales. The reason for my lack of sales? I’m not really sure. This MeMadeMay journey has already brought some answers and given me some modifications I can make both in products and marketing as I move forward.
What I do know to be true is that everything happens for a reason. And as my print says – mine is not to question this truth but to believe and grow.
I have surrendered to this truth and got on with the growing, and look forward to revealing just how much here on Wednesday as I introduce my new, using what I’ve got and adding texture, venture.
