Do you wish you could spend more time developing your artistic side? Do you love buying vintage, but worry your house is starting to look a bit too much like an antique market? #ProjectNewYear is here to help.
Over the next few months, we’re excited to partner with Etsy to share new projects and ideas, and encourage you to get creative by setting up your very own Etsy shop. Etsy is an online marketplace for handmade goods and vintage items; it provides independent, creative small businesses with tools for success. Countless full-time Etsy sellers are mothers from around the globe who enjoy the flexibility an online business affords them to work on their own terms.
Etsy sellers and Admin alike have signed up to show you the ropes and share their own small business stories. You can follow the #ProjectNewYear hashtag via Instagram and Twitter for even more handmade inspiration and info.
