Takin' it Full Time

I've really made the mental jump to taking my business full time. Not today, not tomorrow...but in my future...I can see it now. Sales are certainly picking up right now, but I think that has more to do with the time of year then anything else in particular. I'm certainly not doing any marketing yet or anything like that. There are a couple of bright things on the horizon.
1) I bought my domain. Check it Before you say anything, YES, it's supposed to do that. It will take you automatically to my ETSY store. I don't have a website yet, so it's got to do something in the meantime. I plan (in my head only...not on paper) to launch the website in 3-6 months. How do I plan to do this? Dunno. I've never done any of this before, so I'm learning as I go. I did create a layout that I liked, but it's purely is a jpeg, not a website. If only it were that easy. I also have big decisions to which jobs I should hire a professional for. Ideally all of them, that way I could just focus on the fun stuff!
2) I was contacted by an online/catalog company for a couple of my products. We've agreed upon wholesale pricing, and now I have to send in my products to be photographed. I see no reason why this partnership won't go through, but I'm still reserving any big hopes. I have no idea whether the extra exposure will get me zero additional sales or a million. Zero of course isn't good, but neither is a million. I'm not ready for a million!!
I really feel like I'm on the edge of something, but not quite sure where to start. I don't anticipate this being full time for a long time. And that's ok. But I know now that I can do it if I want to, and I've decided that I want to.

Now, if I only knew how to do it.
