I have another order! This one is for a crocheted scarf that will make its way to Australia – where it’s fall time. So, with that sale, I have reached my goals for the month of April – which means I have made my goals every month since December when I started out with having goals.
It’s a very meager goal but it did take 25 days to make it. The goal is 5 sales for the month and that means I make a donation to the charity of choice for the year (this year it’s the K.I.N.D. fund through UNICEF and I also pay it forward by purchasing something from an Etsy shop. It is a small goal but when I made it, I hadn’t fully experienced the holiday sale and I wasn’t sure the success of the holiday would translate into sales the other part of the year. This way, I can increase it at the end of this year. In any case, the meagreness of my goal means more money for UNICEF and more sales for Etsy and that can’t be bad.
Today is day 25 and I think I have hit my first plateau. Not to worry, it’s not making me anxious. My next free day is on the horizon and Mr. Honey has suggested brownies as the free day treat – yummmmm. I have to say Jewel bakery makes a really nice frost-free brownie. With some cold milk. Nirvana. Something to look forward to.
