Overwhelmed by the Possibilities

So….I made me an apron and posted it to Facebook.  I love it and to my surprise, so did others.  I now have people asking me to make them one and that they’ll pay me.  Yay!  Except now I’m freaking out.  I’ve toyed with the idea of selling my creations before but chickened out, especially when it comes to the business side of things.  I also have a chronic illness to contend with, that happens to be very sensitive to stress.  When I have even a tiny amount of stress, I hurt worse and have fatigue, insomnia and other unpleasant side effects.  I don’t know if I can actually do this.  I don’t want to make anyone promises or have any awkwardness between friends and family, so I thought about selling on Etsy.  That seems like it would be easy, but just reading the books designed to help you start your business and I’m still freaking out.  I can barely get through one page on the business side of things.  I just want to make pretty things and sell them.  Is that too much to ask?
