It Feels Good!!!

Today, after 3 months of opening my shop, I am feeling great.. So here I list some of my achievements.
  1. Made 16 sales. Some of them were batch sales, like 6 bracelets of a kind or 7 necklaces of a kind. So, to make myself happier, I would say I have 16+ sales.
  2. Got 14 feedbacks and all of them were 100% positive. Yes, some of them were through my friends who bought from me but I PROMISE (or alteast hope) they were genuine. Or I can say, if they come back, it would be genuine.
  3. Got 125 Heart shops and 193 Item hearts. With this saying, I remember when I first got a heart. It was so special for me. Someone saw my work online and liked it. It was a great feeling.
  4. I have been featured in three Treasuries. I made quiet a few of my own treasuries also.
  5. My Google page relevance is 2/10 .. 10 being the best. But I happy for the fact that I am seen by google.
  6. I started my Facebook Fanspage. Today it counts 354 fans. I want to hit 1000 very soon and that too without spamming. (
  7. I made a twitter account though I am still clueless about what to do with it. I am sure I'll figure that out soon.. ( Yes, it has only single "A" .. Twitter had a word limit.
  8. Last but not the least, I started my shop dedicated blog :)
How am I celebrating it??
  1. I made one of the most coveted (I think so :P) necklaces for my bridal section..
  2. I made a treasury for the new friends I have made through ESTY.
  3. As I gift, I also got featured in a treasury :)


  1. Congrats Naiya :) Its great that you look at life in such a positive way and you are able to list your accomplishments over the last few months. Its important that you appreciate the work you have put into your shop. That resonates through to others as well . Someday, I hope to do the same for mine.

    I absolutely love the bridal necklace. The pendant is so ethereal .

    BTW, I have no clue what to do with twitter,either !

    and I am sorry about leaving such a long comment !

  2. Thanks Lakshmi, for the deatiled comment.. I am glad you read it till the end.. earlier I was thinking that it might just be a laundry list and mightn't interest people.. Now I don't think so :)

  3. Congrats! I love the article. It gives me hope for my Etsy shop. I am following you on Twitter. Your jewelry is so gorgeous. WOW!

    If you look at my Etsy shop, I am open for any advice.
    ♥ Rebecca

  4. Hi Rebecca

    Thank you for taking out the time to read it.. And I am the happiest person if I am able to inspire someone..
    I am no expert, but my only advice is just follow your conviction and everything else will fall in place :) .. sooner or later :).. Good luck to you..

    btw, have you thought about changing your banner? Why not make it look as delicious as your candies??


  5. Congratulations on your success! It's so difficult to sell jewelry since it's such a flooded market and it's a lot of work. You should definitely be proud!

    Twitter is something I haven't figured out either. I signed up and I think I did a test tweet and that's it. I don't know how to find people to follow. I just started blogging too and that also baffles me a little!

  6. Congratulations! That is a lot of successes.

  7. Hi Michelle

    Thanks a lot.. I just visited your beautiful etsy shop.. Such great designs.. :)

  8. And you thought noone would read your 'laundry list' ! Enjoy!

  9. Congratulations on all your achievements in 3 months! That's a great idea to list them out. I should list mine out, even if just for myself, to see how far I've come - and then set some goals for the next few months.
