Pet Portraits

Pet Portraits - student project

I draw.  I have 1 item listed on Etsy which is an 8 x 10 custom pet portrait in pencil.  I have sold 1 in the last 2 years.  My customer was really pleased with it, but unfortunately she never wrote a review.  Granted I haven't spent much time working on the marketing aspect or coming up with other items to list, mainly because I am new to this and work slowly.  My goals are to make a little money.  I have been a stay at home Mom for 20 years.  My youngest child will be heading off to college next fall.  I would like to develop a business through Etsy that I can make a little money to help with college expenses, but a business that is flexible so that I can travel with my husband on business trips periodically, go to college football games,  and be around to help my aging parents.  I struggle with setting aside time to work regularly on improving my skills and developing my Etsy shop.
