Wilde Feature: Ashlee Schleicher of My Sweet Nomsa
I have always enjoyed being creative and doing things with my hands. After graduating college in 2008, the economy crashed and I found myself working an unfulfilling job because that was all that was available to me at the time. I spent my evenings knitting, creating jewelry and doing all sorts of crafts just to find a creative release from my boring desk job. On a complete whim one evening, I opened up an etsy shop after reading about it on a blog. For the next six months, I poured myself into that shop and learned everything I could about etsy, selling online and how to make great jewelry. I had enough success within those first six months that I quit my job three days before my wedding (not recommended!). Once I got back from my honeymoon, it was sink or swim time with my shop. I expanded my product line, retook photographs, learned a bit more about social media and had a booming holiday season. I haven't looked back since :) I still learn something new about etsy/owning your own business/selling online everyday, but I get a lot of fulfillment from where I am now with my career.
wax seal necklaces. They are one of the best seller's in my shop and people really seem to love them. I love getting orders from brides who are giving these to their bridesmaids on her special day.
