Etsy shop is 2 πŸŽ‰πŸŒ»

Happy birthday to my Etsy shop Annabella’s Sunflower Crafts (Annasuncrafts). Two today!

When I first opened my shop in 2016 I hadn’t a clue what I was doing. (Some days I still don’t!) I waited a wee while for my first sale and convinced myself no one would buy from me! Gradually, the sales began to come in. 😊

Joining the I heart Scotland Etsy team has really helped me.  They are supportive and have great advice. ❀️

Joanne Hawker’s March meet the maker was a great experience for me and I’d recommend participating in it if you have a small business. It really focuses you and develops your understanding of how social media can help you. You also discover the work of such talented people.🌸

This year I began listening to Etsy podcasts and I’ve found them a positive resource that is insightful.

I still smile when I hear the Ca-Ching sound on my phone. Each sale is so important to me. I particularly love hearing the story behind a purchase. A big thank you to the lovely people who buy my work. 😘

Many of us makers simply just don’t believe in ourselves and think we are not good enough. πŸ˜• So lovely feedback really helps.πŸ€—

I hope I continue to improve. I’m always reading, learning and listening to feedback.

Today, I may have some cake to celebrate. 🍰 Something I rarely do!! πŸ˜‰


Baked frittata 🍽

I made a cheese and tomato frittata for my lunch today. Basically whisk 6 eggs, add cheese, chopped tomato and seasoning. Set oven to 200 degrees c.  Pour mixture into a tin lined with baking paper. Bake for roughly 25 minutes. You can choose whatever filling you like! Enjoy!πŸ˜€

Cruickshank Gardens Aberdeen πŸŒΈπŸŒ·

Had a beautiful walk round Cruickshank gardens and the University this weekend. After all that walking it made sense to pop in past Kirk View cafe for a wee rest. Lovely place and the chocolate and coconut cake with ice cream was delicious! πŸ«πŸ°β˜•οΈ
