I'm about 5 days away from the shop's 2nd month anniversary. I think I had 12 sales within the first month, and I'm up to 49 now. I'm really excited about the progress. I've started to learn what works, and what doesn't. I'm going to eliminate certain products for a while...mostly those for the home like pot holders, place mats and coasters.

All right, time to get to work.
