Hey there Aleesha!
Much like I do to myself, you underestimate your own ability. I would not have been able to tell you were a beginner. I’m not surprised you sold a design.
Funny thing, I actually started freelancing this year — making t-shirt designs.
When I started my first business 5 or 6 years ago I paid a design company about $300 for a nice logo. I agree with you that you get what you pay for.
You just have to be careful so you don’t pay for more than you need. 😜
