Life On Etsy – Small Town Creative Business

Graphic Art Print - Illustrations by Brina - Download and Print Home Decor

I live in Fernie and I’m a creative person. It’s all I want to do – drawing, paint, make mobiles, build things with my hands. I also have two kids who are still quite young and need a lot of attention. Being a creative mom is easier now than it probably ever was in a small town. I’m blessed to be in a situation where my husband can work full time, with flexible hours and I can be the main daytime caregiver to our kids. I can still find time to draw, build, paint and play in between all the craziness. Making stuff is one thing, selling it is another. I’ve decided recently to try out this whole ETSY handmade marketplace. I figure it would be a good place to start! So I’ve gone and done it. I have two things happening right now – Annex Suspended (cool mobiles with Michelle Galway) and Brina And Friends Art (so far by myself but I have plans to add other talent).

I’ll let you know how it goes! So far we haven’t sold anything but being on ETSY is like some strange video game or a puzzle that I need to figure out. You can’t just post things on there and the money rolls in. But my kids are both going to be in school full time soon and I need to figure this stuff out. Tick tick tick tick tick tick….
