Is this a job for you or a hobby? Its about 1/2 of a job. I also teach art and English.
How did you get into your craft? I have been creating many forms of art since I was little. I went to art school for painting and art education, and the jewelry began while I was there as well.
Do you have any advice for fellow Etsy shop owners? I think that having a clear, colorful shop is important, including sharp pictures. Its great to join teams that fit with your location, items, and personality. I love the teams I'm in, including the one that I founded and run; Etsy for Animals: Artists Helping Animals (efa). Check out our shop, where 100% goes to animal charities http://etsyforanimals.etsy.com I also belong to Etsy for Charity, which has a great shop giving 100% to charity http://etsyforcharity.etsy.com . Its great to become part of the community through teams, the forums, and friendly and prompt convos.
