An Artisan's Life by Anne Hopfer

Anne is one of the dear online friends I've met since I've started selling my jewelry online. She too is an artisan and spends much of her time helping and promoting fellow artisans. I have learned much from her expertise in online marketing.

She recently posted the following poem that she wrote on one of the online networking sites she manages - On Fire for Handmade.
If you are a handmade artisan and haven't checked out On Fire for Handmade, I would highly recommend you do so. Everyone there is friendly and helpful. It is a great place to share, promote and learn.

An Artisan's Life

We think, we create, we list, we wait!
Hoping to sell...feeling great.
We post, we tweet, we share, we like..
We update, we chat, we promote with might!

We clean, we dust and vacuum too..
Fix boo boos, cook .. a trip to the zoo.

We create some more and start listing again
Oh No... we have reached days end.

Never fear we are mighty and strong
There's always tomorrow...we plod along!

We make great friends along the way
And fingers crossed... a sale!! Yeah!!

We wear many hats in our venture on line..
We are Husbands and wives and somehow.. always find time.
We enjoy our good times and chins up during strife!

This my friend.. is the Artisan's Life!
