A Teen on Etsy


This is my first blog post, so I thought I would just let you get to know me and explain what I want to use this platform for.

My name is Brooke Tomlinson, I am 16 years old, and I have an Etsy shop called Ink & Dust.

I want to use this blog to show a behind-the-scenes look at what a part time Etsy shop is like. With tips for students and teens with their own shops, or any other part time Etsy seller.

I will show you my design and manufacturing process, for products as well as brand elements like shop banners, logos, business, cards and packaging. (also some hacks for shop owners who want to make a cute logo or banner for cheap without graphic design softwares or hiring an artist!)

I'm not a know it all, and even though I've been on Etsy for almost a year now I am still learning every day and have by no means mastered any of this stuff.

But! Two minds, or a ton of minds, are better than one.
There is a comment section on each of my posts, so please share your ideas!! Let me know of any tips you have, topics you want me to write about, or improvements I could be making. I am open to critiques and would love some feedback!
