What Kind Of Crafter Are You?
No crafter is an island. You are a whiz with a Dremel, but if your only social outlet is the Etsy forums, isolation is likely to dull the shine on your sequins. Make a day trip to scope out your nearest craft show, and I promise you’ll be inspired — you might even make a few friends.
Your mad craft skills are paralleled only by your ability to juggle invoices, inventory, and iChat while blogging about your latest batch of vendibles. You’ve got it going on in the business department, so if your town doesn’t have a craft show, start your own, you overachiever.
All signs are pointing toward you being really serious about those plastic canvas bookmarks.
Your greatest thrill is crafting to save the world. Upcycling is your middle name, and saving stuff from landfills is your game.
You are all about collaborating with other crafters and don’t shy away from your potentially adoring public. Your enthusiasm will take you far, and you're sure to make friends along the way.
Keep working on it, buddy. Everybody is a beginner at some point.
You're almost too cool for school. Whatever the hot trend is right now? You're already past it. Keep doing your thing!
So you're a wise guy, huh? Customers flock to you for your sense of humor just as much as your craftsmanship. If there was an SNL for crafters, you'd be on it.
Whatever sells best on Etsy is what you are crafting. Put a bird on it? Absolutely. And put a mustache on it while you're at it.
