A Word From the Author:
" If you’re at all crafty, you’ve probably considered this question. The DIY aesthetic is hot, and why shouldn’t you get some of that cash people would otherwise throw at a big box store? Or maybe you’d like to raise awareness and funds for a pet project—whether it’s rescuing cats, paying for someone’s medical bills or fighting world hunger. Maybe you dream of escaping your cubicle and never going back, or maybe you just want to make a little dough to soften the blow of your credit card bills. But you have absolutely no clue where to start. And that’s why I wrote this book. I wanted a business guide for indie crafters like me who do it themselves and want to stay that way. Whether you’re just starting to explore Etsy or are trying to take your biz to the next level, Crafty Superstar will help you get where you want to go." — Grace Dobush

FINDING A GOOD WORKSPACE
It’s no fun to have to tear down your kitchen table workshop every time you need to eat. This is a good time to finally clean out the attic or take over the guest bedroom. If you’re in a small apartment or are otherwise strapped for space, you can always get crafty with it. Think of your setup like a Murphy bed: Create something that you can stash away as is without a lot of fuss. This could be a low table that fits under your bed or boxes of materials that you can pull out of the closet when it’s time to get crafty.
Taryn Hipp used to have a dedicated crafting room but now just sets up shop wherever she can. "If I can find a flat surface where there’s not a person or an animal, I will fill it with stuff, " she says. Hipp runs the online consignment shop My My out of her bedroom. "I have all the My My inventory on this shelving rack that takes up an entire side of my room. The only sign of it being a bedroom is the bed. Otherwise you’d think it was an office. I am completely OCD and love to organize—but I’m also a pack rat. I have a detailed filing system, with a folder for each consigner where I store contracts, invoices, correspondence and payment receipts. " The inventory she separates by category and organizes alphabetically.
Holly Klump recently bought a house and turned part of the basement into a studio for herself. "I painted it how I wanted to, and there’s no computer down here, so I’m not distracted. I think that’s important, " she says. "In the last apartment, I had a craft room, but this is like my craft dungeon."
