start small

I have big hopes for Little Papercuts.

Over the past few years I've come to realize that while it would be wonderful to have a website, a blog can be a great forum to promote your work.

I would love to have a a big airy (read organized) studio space, separate from my kids' play space, but it's nice to be able to watch 'Twilight' as I work and listen to the chatter of my funny monkeys:)

Even though being busy with artwork is something I enjoy, I am content to put it on hold because the mini papercuts are only young once, and I don't want to miss even a second of it.

I really need to get my etsy shop up and running, even if it means only offering 5-10 custom orders a month in the beginning. (Yes muffin, I hear you and I know you're right)

Word of mouth can be a girl's best friend, and really help out the pocket book. I am lucky to have such wonderful customers, family and friends!

If you have a great product, it will speak for itself. Start small and dream big...yup I think that's right:)

So very well said! And I agree with you completely! I think that's a great way to get your Etsy shop going....I seriously can't wait to see it up and running!

Great idea. You can then only post as many customs as you have time for in your life. As anxious as I am, I fully respect your wanting to be with your little ones. They grow all too fast. I know I want to be there for mine for as many moments as I possibly can, so who am I ask you to give up your moments? We can and WILL wait patiently, though we may stalk your Etsy shop once you let us know when it is up.
