Black Friday and More!

So I know you have all probably been waiting for a huge Black Friday announcement...well here it is!

Holiday Shop Sets: 50% off!!
Premium Shop Sets: $10.00 off!
Basic Shop Sets: 50% off!!
Made to Match Items: 3 for $25.00 or 50% off each Made to Match Item!

I have decided to add in listings for made to match items. This way if a customer wants to add a bow card and a business card design to their order, they can simply add the listing to their cart and voila! Easy! I will also have a 3 for $30.00 listing as well. These can be any 3 made to match items.


It's time for this weeks Etsy tip. I just found out about this and I am SUPER excited to share it with you all. Etsy has just rolled out a huge list of apps to help us all out and my absolute favorite is called Etsy On Sale. Just to go etsyonsale.com to get started. The way it works it simple(and incredible!) I love it because instead of going through my Etsy shop and changing all of the listings to reflect a sale price, I can go on Etsyonsale and change the price of a section. For example, I will be putting my Holiday sets on sale for 50% off. Here is how you do it:

Go to Etsyonsale.com.
Click on Sellers in the upper right hand corner.
Go through the steps and confirm your shop name and allow them to connect to your account.
Select your shop
Click on Sales Events
On the right hand side will want to click on add new sales event.
Go through the simple form and voila, you have a sale!

I am so excited to try this out on Black Friday! I love, love, LOVE this new app and I know it will make my life much easier!

I hope you enjoyed this because I did! Happy selling and be sure to check out all of my awesome sale items next week.

Success!

Success!

My free holiday set sale was a HUGE success! I am still catching up on orders from the weekend, although my trip to the ER on Saturday didn't help things...

I woke up with a pain in my side and immediately thought it was appendicitis. Not wanting to have my appendix explode I had my husband take me to the ER. Thank goodness there weren't that many people there, but of course my stay was about a 5 hour one. Anywho, long story short, I had an ovarian cyst burst and the fun fluid that comes out is really irritating. I got a semi-clean bill of health and was sent home at about 1:00. I really wanted to use that time to get all of my orders filled but alas, rest came first. I did get a lot done yesterday though! I am going to finish up the rest of the orders and revisions today and hopefully get started on another EXCITING project!

I have decided that for the holiday season only, I will be bringing you print cards back! I have some really fun, cute ideas to bring to my shop for Christmas. The reason I do this is because I always look at those other fancy schmancy websites with their holiday cards. I think, oh wow that is cute....wait a minute I'm not paying that price! I want to be able to bring families fun, cute designs without breaking their budget. So be on the lookout later this week for holiday cards!

So, to those of you still waiting on a set, it will be in your inbox today!
