First sale!

     I've been selling my crocheted items for about three years now.  In that time, I have sold to a lot of great people and I have some very loyal customers who are amazing!  Up until now, I have only been selling through Facebook and craft fairs.

     At the beginning of this year, my husband and I set up an actual online marketplace, where people can go to buy my items, without having to go through FB, because, shocker...not everyone has Facebook!  I know, I can't believe it either sometimes, LOL.  We decided that if we really want this to take off, and if we want our customers to extend outside of the Bloomington area code, we would have to expand.
     And expand we did.  We, and by we I mean my husband, set up an online store at  It took a lot of time.  Time which we hoped would pay off in the future.  We have been trying to promote the site, through my blog, and through my facebook page.  We've had it up and running for almost a month now.  And just yesterday....I got my first order!

     Yes I've sold many items before to all my wonderful customers.  And, yes, I have sold to outside the Bloomington area.  But when I got that email that I have received an order through my online marketplace, well I just got really excited.

     Excited that my business has taken yet another step to becoming bigger, and better.  Excited that more and more people are becoming familiar with the name, "The Crocheting Mom."  And excited about what's to come.

     Thank you to everyone who has supported me, bought from me, and helped me along the way.  Without my customers loving my items, I wouldn't be able to do what I love to do.  I know, I know, that's super corny, but it's true!
