We were featured by Etsy!!

A couple of months ago I received an unexpected email, which I almost  deleted thinking it was spam (ek!). It was far from spam, in fact it was an email from Etsy Head Office (United States) wanting to publish a feature article on One Happy Leaf! Saying I was a little excited is a bit of an understatement. 

For years I had been reading Etsy's blogs on feature sellers, almost studying them religiously. Before I quit my day job to start working full-time on One Happy Leaf I use to read the Etsy "Quit Your Day Job" blog series in my lunch break and take notes. The series consisted of interviews of Etsy sellers and their transition from hobby to full-time business. I was obsessed with these articles, trying to learn all that I could about running a creative business. 

Well, it turns out all that obsessive reading and studying helped me in my own pathway to finally quit my day job in 2014. As fate would have it, Etsy would publish an article about One Happy Leaf as a "Feature Seller" (the Feature Seller blog replaced the Quit Your Day Job series) three years later. 

Through the powers of Skype, a lovely Etsy representative carried out the interview over the phone. I was excited and probably spoke too much and too quickly! However, she was able to decipher through my rambles and created the below blog.

Enjoy!

Where I grew up, the nearby bushland was my playground. Spending my days catching frogs, butterflies + playing with mud was when I was at my happiest.

I am proud to say, because of you 10,119 trees have been planted in the world. The trees have been planted in various countries across the world that needed either needed rehabilitation or to create forest gardens in developing countries.
