Well...I've Done It!

I am so excited and so nervous at the same time! I took a huge step tonight! I actually purchased a domain name for my new business! I will be setting up my website over the next few weeks, and will hopefully have it up and running in three to four weeks!

For those of you who don't know, I have decided to take my craftiness to the next level. I have been selling my creations on Etsy for awhile now, but you have to pay a fee every time you list an item. It's minimal, but I hate paying them. My sales have really picked up recently, and the demand for my products has increased! I actually have a wholesale order for my magnetic boards and altered clothespin magnets! This is huge, and could be a great source of income for our family!

I know I haven't posted recently, and for that, I apologize, but I have been really busy trying to figure out the best web hosting company, website designer, and overall business plan. I have to say, I think I have found the greatest web hosting company around. It is MiaShops, and their plans are really affordable and you get a lot of extras for a minimal price. If any of you are interested in learning about this host, I have placed their button on the right side of this page...just click on it, and it will take you directly to the site! I now have hosting for my website for the next year!

I am now the owner of www.thriftytrendsetter.com! It's not up and running yet, but it will be soon-I'll be sure to let you know when I have it running!

If you want to see an example of some of the items I will be selling, click on the pictures of the items I have made on the right side of this page, and it will take you to my Etsy shop. Thanks for looking and for all of your support!

I've tried to sell stuff too before at Ebay but I don't seem to make much profit. :( Now I don't sell anymore. I would like to but I don't know what. I have no luck. :(

COngratulations on your business. It's so exciting. Enjoy and I wish you the very best. :)
