Etsy sellers: Do you know how much you've earned?

I didn't until I started keeping up with my expenses and profits in a spreadsheet. I'm not using my owlsome gifts shop as a main source of income, but it is still nice to know my profits (or losses)!

Do you keep up with your earnings?

If you are looking for a spreadsheet to help you do so, I've created one and added it to my shop for $5. It's a simple one that's simple to use. Click it to check it out if you're in need...

Where do you ship?

Just wondering where everyone else ships most of their items to??? I ship mostly in the United States. At first I only offered shipping within the US. Then, I got a request to ship to Australia and realized international shipping wasn't all that complicated!

Now I'm offering international shipping.
