Handmade business is all about diversifying.  You can’t just keep doing the same thing over and over again and expect to continue staying in a creative and evolving business.  I like to think of my business as a wheel with sprockets- like a bicycle wheel.  At the center is me, the artist (aka Virginia Lindsay).  The sprockets are the different aspects of my business- the PDF patterns, the handmade items, the blog, the books, the youtube channel, the sewing classes, etc.  I can talk more about that in another blog post if you are interested! 

The other day I made a video showing how I have begun selling on Poshmark.   Poshmark is a buying and selling app that is FREE and you can download it here.

So far I am selling these necklaces that I made using this tutorial I did for Sew Mama Sew a few years ago.  I love how they add such character to a basic outfit (and let’s face it, 95% of my outfits are basic!).   You can get the instructions to make on for yourself here!
