This day is virtually gone, and I haven't created a single thing. I've been photographing, listing and marketing handmade cowboy booties. The worst part of it is the marketing. I'm old school, I guess, but it just bothers me to say, "Look what I did! It's the best! You should buy it!" That's just not what you are supposed to do. Trust me... I didn't use those exact phrases, but that's the gist of it.
The thing is, I may hate the marketing aspect of being a cottage industry, but I absolutely love the sales that the marketing produces. It's the sales that give me the opportunity to make something to replace what's been purchased. And that is the whole idea... make some sales.
