A winner and a big thank you!

C enjoyed being the important person to draw the lucky winner when he came home from work last night. He turned it into a big show and I wish you could have seen it too (very entertaining!). In the end he finally managed to draw one piece of paper from the bowl and it's emma (emsan)!!! I'll make sure to get your little package on its way as soon as possible, Em! Now I need to thank each and every one of you! Your suggestions are deeply appreciated!
I am in the middle of trying to put your ideas to practice. The suggestion to add some less expensive items, which came from quite a few of you, is probably a very good one!!! I already have something in mind. Let's see how that will turn out.
I don't think I'll be able to lower the prices in general. Of course I do love to sew and it does bring a lot of joy but unfortunately fabrics, thread, buttons, zippers, a.s.o. are fairly expensive in Germany and I'd really like to make some profit too... just to make up for all the time I spend on every single item and just so I can buy more fabris and sewing supplies actually.
Once I'll add some more items I'll most definitely start to use different categories and if I should actually have a creative moment I might even come up with better names for the things I make.
To list items as often as possible is probably another very good advice... at least that's what I read now in some forums too! I never thought of listing one item at a time but that way of course one will be easier to be found during searches.

I hope to get it all fixed within this month and will probably post about it once its done. Thanks bunches! You all rock!

YAY!!! What a great surprise!!! I added your blog to my feed and this was the first post to show up. I'm so happy now! Thank you, thank you for having this giveaway. And thank you to C as well for drawing my name. :)

Hope you get lots of business in your etsy shop. I'm sure the suggestions will help but I think you would have had great success without them as well. You make beautiful things!

That's the crux. The prices in Germany are much more expensive than in USA for example. And people often don't understand that. Plus you must see the work and love that is behind a crafted item! Quality has its price.
