Over the last year or so I have been making stationery, invitations, & birth announcements for friends and family. Now I have graduated to Etsy. I started this past December and was actually a little surprised at the great response. (I had 31 sales in the first month.) During December I also did a fund raiser for two local kindergarten schools. That is something that I will definitely try to do again. It was a little stressful trying to complete those orders along with the Etsy Christmas orders, but it made for some interesting late nights. Thankful I had my husband, who not only helped with the printing and packaging of orders, but also helped take care of our three children, the house cleaning, and all of the holiday preparations.
Now, it is time to conquer my new year goals. One is, along with thousands of other people around the world, to become more organized. The other is to find some interesting new ideas for my shop and to have a very productive and profitable year! And last but not least, while creating a productive shop, find ways to create a schedule to allow for quality time with my family.
I will be trying to post regularly, about what is going on in my shop, and also asking for input on new designs and ideas. So, please check in often, and remember your comments are greatly appreciated.
Thanks for stopping by!
