When I decided to leave Etsy and try out a more mature venue, I had lots of reasons and justifications for doing so.

My confession? I am having so much fun on Etsy! I had forgotten just how easy it is to make beautiful treasuries with millions of products to choose from. It’s a lot more work, making sure that the gorgeous items with perfect photographs aren’t made by tiny children in huge sweatshops, but it’s worth it!
