A Fresh Start

So I closed my eBay store this morning, a decision I made about a month ago- the fees and time greatly outweigh the sales at this point and frankly, I'd rather focus on my website, Etsy and Brick & Mortar sales. So it's not a sad day- on the contrary, I am feeling like a weight is lifted and I am being given a fresh start! And as if someone was watching and knew- I awoke to an Etsy sale! Go me!

I sent a newsletter to all my eBay subscribers announcing my store closure and received an email back from one customer telling me she loved my things and had wandered over to my website and would like to buy 4 sea glass angels from me- I'm a happy girl. :)

And on that note, I made a lovely breakfast for my family this morning, I sorted some beautiful new cobalt blue sea glass for earring pairs and went about customizing my new "my eBay" page (since I also unsubscribed to "Selling Manager" over there).

I am so grateful for the little things in my life.
