I sold a doll!!
I've made an Etsy sale -- my first since opening shop in May! The lucky doodad is the mini mermaid art doll (only 20 cm long), unnamed, made of Japanese craft felt.
I was at first thrilled to finally sell something I designed and made (not counting a custom order from an old schoolmate... because I haven't finished it!). And then for the rest of the day, I was terrified that the recipient wouldn't like it.
It's times like these I wish I had Western (or Westernized) parents who would've pumped me full of confidence -- even if it's entirely unwarranted -- rather than beaten me down with a sense of Asian humility. :P
In any case, the package is on its way to the US now, so I'll just have to wait for feedback for the next 4 to 11 business days. Hopefully I'll also get an acceptance/rejection letter for my last short story by then, because I really, really can't help waiting for closure on one project before starting the next.
If I could write a new story and sew a new doll in the upcoming week......
