4. Any Specific Tips you have for newbie crafters starting a business in etsy?
Do what you love. Make your budget work for you - don't work for it. You may need to make some things that are less enjoyable if they are your bread and butter. But be sure to focus on something fun and creative at least once a week to keep your creativity and passion alive and thriving. Dream big!

Etsy, YouTube, Amazon.

In 10 years I see my business still growing, with new, fun products being added each year.
