For the last few days I have been seriously thinking of finally having my own Etsy shop. So I have been reading about it and figuring out what I'm planning on doing.
I'm in the process of making a whole heap of note cards and envelopes, trying to plan business cards and packaging and figure out postage costs. It's been fun! Plus Jason is going to help me with an Etsy banner which will match my blog banner. This blog is going to undergo some changes as well. Can't wait!
Here is one of my new card designs I came up with today. It's just a little peak =)
Here are the new note cards. I've only made two and haven't made any envelopes yet but I'm really happy with the way they turned out. I had this idea in my head. And sometimes they don't work but this time it did!
Here is a close up. used some patterned vellum paper and made a tiny envelope. The envelope is filled with tiny butterflies. You can't take them out but I like that you can see through the envelope to see them.
This is a close up of the other card. I thought I would make one facing the front but added the tiny button to make it look like a stamp. I guess you could say this note card has some of my favourite things, letters and mail, tiny buttons, pretty paper, and a note card to send to someone just because =)
These are the other tiny note cards I made with their envelopes. I make them while watching Alias lol.
I hope I am able to have my Etsy open around the first week of April but I still have soo many things to do. Plus I'm feeling a bit apprehensive about it as I don't know if my little note cards will stand out from the mass of talent on Etsy. I guess it's a feeling lots of people have when they first sell their work. Did anyone feel that way? Any tips on starting an Etsy or online business?
Anyway, I will have more information about it soon. Thanks everyone!
P.S. 2 months and 16 days until Prince Caspian Wheee! Though there are a few more books and movies I'm also looking forward too.
