Okay, there's someone.
This someone contacted me asking for a custom stamp set. I was surprised as it was my very first sale of hand carved stamp that I was looking forward to.
We started our conversation just like others, I supposed. She asked for my quotation and I replied to her. To be honest, I got very very little profit from this order. As back then I was desperately waiting for my very first hand carved stamp sale . I thought noone appreciated my work and there she came. I set up the price just to cover the materials and a little bit of the time I spent on carving those stamps out. I wanted to prove it to myself that I could do it. My work was good enough.
We kept writing each other as I need to design those stamps for her. She was very nice and kind. I'm not saying it because she gave me compliments and what not. I meant she encouraged me just like a good old friend would have done.
And while I was carving those little stamps for her I figured that I started all this shop and everything just because I loved carving stamps!
Back when I had no shop, I carved stamps every night just for my own happiness. So why do I need to wait for a sale in order to be happy? 'Coz I actually already am!!
Well, here they are the 7 lip balm flavour stamp set for my favorite customer :)
She recieved them a few days ago. She wrote me how much she loved them.
And I'm very happy not because she said she loved them all. But because I have found the reason why I am here selling my hand carved stamps online AND because this opening a shop on Etsy helped me find this wonderful person :)
