A monthly project by GingerSass
I’ve recently started working on the idea of having a featured Etsy shop of the month* on my site. The logic behind this is a lot of Etsy shops are started by people who have found a craft or past time to get them through a tough time, and then decided to share their crafts with the world.
For me, I renewed my love of photography after the suicide of my friend, Lauren, who was a wonderfully talented photographer. I purchased a new, higher-quality camera on Black Friday this past November, and I began taking photographs around campus, imitating some of the photos Lauren took. Eventually I started shooting more nature shots and playing with different lighting effects. After one particular “photoshoot,” I opened my Etsy shop, where I sell prints of my work. Eventually I’m going to be selling custom iron-on clothing, tote bags, and onesies as well. All of this, combined with GingerSass, has helped me get through this past year.
I think a lot of people have started Etsy shops after finding the strength to get through hard times through crafts and hobbies. What is your story? What hobby/ craft did you pick up to get you through a rough time? What acted as your therapy? Why did you start your Etsy shop? I want to know. Simply submit the form below to me to apply to be a part of “Sassy Healing” and be considered as one of the Etsy shops of the month.
I’d also like to be able to review one of your products in my post about your Etsy site. I think it’s really important, in order for me to better understand your story, to be able to physically appreciate one of your products and review it for my readers. We can work out the logistics of what product I review and such when you apply to be a part of “Sassy Healing.”
Thank you for reading, and I hope to be able to work with you soon!
