Hello everyone!

I can't believe it's already April! I thought I would stop in with a quick update, not only with the new monthly plush pattern I'm giving away, but also an update on my next giveaway and how I'll hopefully be more active again soon XD

I'm getting incredibly close to 100K pageviews! Once I do hit that kiriban, I'm going to hold another giveaway like the ones I've done before. If you'd like to hurry up the process, be sure to check out my main profile page if you haven't already to help bump up those numbers >w<

Here's how the numbers look:

90% progress bar - star blue by AngelLale87 DeviantArt watchers: 3,604/4,000 = 90%
90% progress bar - star blue by AngelLale87 DeviantArt pageviews: 96,179/100,000 = 96% (so close! :la:)
60% progress bar - purple by AngelLale87 Facebook likes: 1,248/2,000 = 62%
75% progress bar - purple by AngelLale87 Tumblr followers: 762/1,000 = 76%
60% progress bar - purple by AngelLale87 Wordpress followers: 1,214/2,000 = 61%

This month also introduces the next leg of my Monthly Crafting Challenge. It's a little challenge I have up on my blog where you get a free sewing pattern when you sign up for email updates or send me photos of your finished projects! The free pattern for this month is a plush Dango (skewered dumpling).

Dango Plush by ShoriAmeshiko

If you're interested in joining in, check out the main challenge page or the FAQ. It's super easy and you get a new free pattern every month when you join in!

That's pretty much all I have to share for now, but rest assured that I am getting incredibly close to being caught up with some other work, so I should have more updates to share in the next month or so. Hopefully life doesn't come knock me on my butt too badly in the meantime, but you should be hearing more from me very soon!

Hi! I've got a question ... I want to start a little online shop to sell some handmade things but etsy seems to be a bit too expensive since they take money from you just for setting up an offer. So ... would you recomment etsy as a good website to start selling things online?

By the way, I love your work, plase keep it up! <3

If you wanted to get started without spending any money upfront, you could try! I've had a store there for a little while now and it's been easy to set up and maintain. The downside is that Storenvy doesn't get nearly as much traffic as Etsy. So you won't get as much attention from people just randomly browsing Storenvy as you would on Etsy. It helps if you already have a big fanbase as it is so all you have to do is direct your followers to your Storenvy shop :)
In the end you'll likely get more sales on Etsy, but you'll have to face the fees. Or you could just get started with Storenvy and see how you like selling online, and decide whether to graduate to Etsy later if you want more exposure ♥

I hope that helps! Thanks for the kind words! Your work looks great too and I hope you have good luck setting up your shop!
