Some Crumbs

Sometimes I see things happen and think, even in these little insignificant situations, God is very gracious. 

It's both a blessing and a curse to have so much information about my shop.  For example, I can see that 82 people have 'seen' my post about the new giveaway--one that requires you to 'share' another post on my site.  I can also see that a grand total of 1 person has actually shared it.  :P  Thanks, Alicia!

In the midst of this new learning experience, however, I got my second stranger sale.  There is nothing like seeing that email titled "Etsy Order Confirmation."  Again, there is nothing that really indicates it had anything to do with my recent advertising activities.  If I knew why this sale occured, I'd focus in that area, but I don't really know.  I just know it's very encouraging as I try and figure out this whole business thing. 

I'm also not sure what I'm supposed to be learning about the whole Facebook thing...whether I'm doing it wrong, or I'm not reading my audience well, or I need to make the Knit Us Together feed more interesting first.  Maybe I just need to get back to knitting.  :)


  1. Have you asked your two stranger sales how they found your shop? Or if they have suggestions for other types of things they'd like to see in it?

  2. Oh, I guess I could talk to them. :) That's a good idea.
