It seems, as an artist/ crafter (I haven't decided which yet), that the real work begins after the creating bit. For example, it takes a couple of hours to cut out and make a new hat for my etsy shop. Oooh. Fun with fabric and cutting and sewing!! That should be it. In a perfect world, maybe. But then there's photographing, editing, listing. And networking. Marketing. More uploading. Whew. By the end of the process, I've spent three hours in front of my computer! All work, I tell you!
Let's be honest. It's all kind of fun.
