A REAL LIFE “CHRISTMAS MIRACLE”
One of my favorite posts on the site these past few weeks was about Fus Ro Draw’s geeky ornaments. Not only were the ornaments gorgeous, but it turns out that post did more than just get people clicking “like” and “re-blog.”
See, it turns out that Kelsey, the person who runs the site, was laid off from her full-time job back in October so she set up her Etsy as a way to make money. She was having moderate success but after posting her work, her orders exploded and now she can afford Christmas gifts for her family and friends.
Now this may not sound like a surprise but let me assure you that it’s definitely not the norm. We’ve posted thousands of crafts, designs, and other things but it’s very rare that something comes along that converts someone’s “hey, that’s cool!” to actually buying something.
Thanks to all of our followers who helped make Kelsey’s Christmas magical and we now share with you some of her new work in hopes you’ll share it with others as well.
I’m getting mad and frustrated easily again, and this hasn’t happened to me since high school. I need to break this feeling as soon as possible.
