My Daughter Started an Etsy Shop!



My daughter is no longer a child. In fact, she has just started her first business, an etsy shop where she will be selling her paintings. The one you see above is in the shop and it is my absolute favorite.

This year she is a senior in high school and there are a lot of things she would like to have/participate in that all cost money. A class ring, her graduation photos, the senior bash, etc., so to help with the expenses, she has decided to start up her own etsy shop!!

I think this is a great way for her learn a bit about business, and transition into the life of being an adult. I certainly hope you'll take the time out and take a look at her photos. Even more, I hope you'll like what you see. Please feel free to heart any of your favorites, and if you opt to make a purchase, even better. :)

Good luck, baby girl!! I love your work, and I hope the whole world will love it too!

You can visit the site here: Dally's Happy Place

Thank you!
