Experience vs. Exposure….wouldn’t it be great if they grew at the same time? :)

I changed the way I do my bluebirds just slightly, and I’m liking them more…

I’ve made their heads BIGGER, because as everyone knows, bigger = CUTER!

Going against this logic though, I made the eyes smaller…but it seems to work!
















Also, I’m pretty proud of my deer: (if I do say so myself!)









Now, if I could just get better at taking pictures!!! Grrrr

I feel like I’m getting better at needle felting. As my confidence grows, I feel more confident about raising the prices of my creations (just a little.) I have to say, money is not my main goal, but I compare my animals to others that are for sale on Etsy, and others are way way way higher (for the most part.)  And I look at other stores’ # of sales and think “Geez, SOMEone out there is paying those high prices….why couldn’t I get a little more for mine?”  Maybe people look at mine and think “She’s so much cheaper…. I wonder why?”

I guess most crafters go through this line of thinking….and I would think that at some point this transition has to happen the more experience and exposure you gain.

At this point. as my experience is growing, but not my exposure.  I have to take time out of crafting to focus on different ways to draw people in.  BUT I LOVE CRAFTING! lol

Guess I’m just going to keep plugging along….because this is FUN! 🙂

Any thoughts/comments are always appreciated!
