Moving!

That's right! I am making the transition over to worpress.com. This will eventually become my website and blog all in one. I made the decision to move because I can control more aspects of my blog and website. I hope you all join me over at wordpress!

It's preview time!

Good morning everyone! I have been hard at work getting some new stuff together for next week. I'm hoping to have these turned into sets by then. In the meantime I am going to let you see what I've been working on.






These are just a few of the new designs I am going to be adding soon! I still have a lot of work to do to get these in the shop but they will be there by the beginning of next week.

Also, I am going to be re-working my logo and website. I am not sure what I want to do with it yet though. I have a few ideas of what I want but it is definitely a work in progress. So be on the lookout for some new SRDS branding!

There are a lot of new things to come over here at the studio and I am super excited:)

Success!

I just wanted to give a big thank you to everyone who participated in the sale this weekend:) I had a great weekend with my family and now it is time to get to work! I also wanted to remind everyone that with the overflow of orders I received with the sale the turnaround time is going to be extended to 4-5 days. If you do not see your order right away, please be patient.

I have also been brainstorming lately and I have some really great ideas for some new shop sets. I will also be working on some holiday sets as well. I recently added a few but I am really excited to get some more in there!

This is all for now. I am going to get back to work on all of your orders:)

Friday, July 1, 2011

Let the sale begin!

I just added the 50% off coupon to my shop. It is valid today, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. I don't have these sales very often so head on over and get a new look for your shop at a great price!

Use code firework50off to get 50% off of your entire order!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Happy 4th of July!

Who is ready for a big announcement? I am! In honor of the 4th of July weekend coming up I will be running a 50% off sale the entire weekend as well as Monday. I will be putting up the coupon code later tonight for you all to take advantage of. Since I know this will be a big sale I want to cover a few things:

It usually takes me anywhere from 24-48 hours to fill an order but I am going to extend the process time. I will give a window of 3-4 days to receive your order.

I am so excited for a fun weekend filled with lots of sunshine! I hope you all enjoy it!

Happy Tuesday!

I woke up this morning to beautiful sunshine shining in my window and I thought, hey, I'm going to add a coupon code in the shop! For today only use code


 
So needless so say, I had a great time. I got a photo of him at the concert but it was really blurry*insert sad face here:( Lol. I really hope people start paying more attention to this kid because he is extremely talented.

Now onto shop business. I still have a very big announcement that will probably come tomorrow or Thursday. Stay tuned to see what it is!
Also, I have been getting a lot of requests for custom orders, logos and the like. I do want to let everyone know that I do plan on making that a part of my shop in the future. Right now, time does not permit me to be making custom orders or adding pre-made logos to the shop. I have two little ones that I have to keep an eye on so time on the computer is limited. However, my oldest daughter starts kindergarten in the fall so I will have more time on my hands and that will probably be when I will start the custom order and premade logo part of my shop:) 

Do any of you have any big plans for this weekend? I hope it's a good one for you all!

New stuff and a coupon code!

Happy Tuesday AND Happy first day of Summer! To celebrate I have a 25% off coupon code. Use code TUESDAYTREAT25OFF in my shop and save some cash!

I also wanted to post some new designs here on my blog. Check them out:























As you can see, I made some fall/Halloween sets. I also added some Christmas sets as well. I decided to add them so that customers can stock up early and use them when the time comes.

I have also been really active in some giveaways lately. I have a free business card design up for grabs on The Shop Around the Block's facebook page. I have a free set available on Storkbite's Children's Boutique on facebook as well. Go check their pages out and have a look!

I also have a big announcement but that won't be coming until next week. Be sure to check back and find out what the big news will be!

I also wanted to share my write up I wrote for my absolute favorite team-The Homefront Team. We are made up of military spouses on Etsy and it is a fabulous place for all of us to go to work together and support each other.

A few ways to help promote your shop:

There are so many ways to promote your shop. My two favorite things to do when promoting my shop sets are doing giveaways and having great customer service.

Do you have a blog? I think having a blog is one of the single most important things that you as an Etsy shop owner can do. Just start out slow. I usually blog once a week and this is perfect for my readers to get a glimpse of any new shop sets I've created, coupon codes, or any other general announcement. Blogs are great for doing giveaways as well. Giving away items from your shop set is a really fun way to get buyers in your shop to have a look around. They can see what is in your shop and this usually will spark some interest and point your followers in the direction of your shop.

If you don't have a facebook page, I would recommend heading over there right now! Facebook is probably the single most effective way to get your news out to potential customers. You need to first build up your fan base and then the rest is a piece of cake. With facebook, you can announce sales, giveaways, coupon codes or just send out a friendly hello to your fans.


I will be writing more in the coming weeks but for now I am going to focus on the shop and getting more items in stock.

I will see all of you next week for the big announcement!

Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to work I go...

This weekend I will be working on a lot of new exciting things for the shop! The first is that I will be adding 4th of July shop sets. I will be working on those this weekend and will hopefully have them up by Monday. I will also be slowly adding fall, Halloween, and Christmas shop sets as well. They will be under the holiday section. I know we aren't even close to those holiday's but I wanted to get them in the shop so shoppers can stock up early.

I am also trying to get more of the business marketing kits in the shop. I've only got a few right now but I will hopefully have a lot more by July. They are very time consuming to make but I want to get them in the shop so that you as the shopper can see what the different items look like, ie the gift certificate design or whatever design you want to see.

I am also looking into the idea of having a business card section in my shop. What do you guys think? I have a lot of ideas for new cards but I just need the time to sit down and make them! Hopefully by the end of the June I can have some previews of them for you all.

I think that is all for this entry. I will be writing again on Monday for my usual blog write up but I wanted to let you all know my plans so you can go check it out!

Take care polar bear!

Giveaway time!

Giveaway

I recently worked with super fantastic Meagan Visser on her blog doing a fun giveaway of a premium shop set. I wanted to keep the fun going with another giveaway on my blog! Here are the rules and have fun with it! 

I want to get some of my followers some exposure so here are the rules. In the comments leave your name, shop name and link to your blog. Then next Wednesday I will choose a winner. If you don't have a blog, that's okay too. You can post in the comment box and let me know why you should win!


And without further ado, here is the giveaway! I will be giving away this absolutely gorgeous business card holder. These come in handy because you can stick them in your purse and have them at your ready when you are out and about. I love these because if I am out shopping and see a bulletin board I can just reach in, get my card and post it up!

Cute Birdy Card Holder!
Did you think that was all I was giving away? Wrong! I am also going to give away a business card design of your choice(visit www.sararubendall.etsy.com to view the designs). You will be responsible for having them printed but if you use vistaprint.com it will be a breeze. Simply upload the design I send you(I will put your information on it) and voila, you are finished. 


So spread the word. If you know someone in need of a new business card design send them here or they can visit www.sararubendall.etsy.com.

What's New


I have some new designs I am in the process of finishing. The shop has been pretty busy so I haven't gotten a chance to get any new sets in the shop. There are some designs in the works that I am super excited about and I will be sure to let you all know when they are up in the shop.


Business Marketing Kits are coming soon! All of my shop sets have always been available as bmk's but I will soon I will have bmk listings for every set. This will be pretty time consuming so if you know you want a business marketing kit you can always visit the made to match section and let me know via convo or notes to seller box upon checkout the set you would like your bmk matched to. 


I will also be writing up a tutorial to go out with all of the orders. If you order a shop set from me you will receive instructions on how to install your set as well as the best places to print your printable items. This tutorial will also include information about uploading your items to printing sites as well as Etsy.com.


This isn't new but I wanted to add it because I know not a lot of you know this. Revisions are free and unlimited for the life of your product(which is forever!) I have a lot of people convo me and ask how much a revision is...and the answer is it is free. Simply convo or e-mail and I will be more than happy to help you out! As a military wife I know that people move, and sometimes quite often and I don't think you should have to pay extra.


So there you have it. Be sure to enter the giveaway and tell everyone you know about it. It is a pretty nice little gift so get the word out!

It's Spring!

Hey everyone! I'm blogging a day early because I will be busy here in the studio this week. I am going to be working on a tutorial on how to make your very own etsy banner on Piknic for Babyswank as well as making some new sets for my shop. They will be springtime inspired and (of course) will be super fun!

Today's tip is one that I myself follow on a daily basis. Re-list and re-list often. You can either list new items or use the renew feature, which I absolutely love! After I re-opened my shop recently I noticed Etsy has a new renew option. This is great for shops that want to re-list items but don't want to go through the hassle of copying their listings. Log in to Etsy and click the little shop icon at the top of the page. You can click on any item and you will be brought to the listings page. From there, click the blue link at the top that says renew. This is fastest way to get your shop noticed and you won't lose your hearts on the item either. This is a huge factor because I have items in my shop with considerable amounts of hearts and if you re-list by copying the listing those hearts go away.

Renewing listings is such a great tool that Etsy has offered and I am loving it! Take advantage of this because it will save you time and will get your items viewed.

Have a great weekend everyone and be sure to check out my shop this week. It will be loaded with lots of new springy designs!

Grand re-opening!

So as most of you know, I just can't stay away from my shop! I was planning on opening my shop back up in April but my hard working self just can't seem to stay away...maybe I'm a workaholic, lol. Anywho, as promised I will be providing a super huge, super exciting coupon. Here is the code: grandreopen there it is, your 25% off coupon code. This is HUGE mind you. I have never done a coupon code this big and it will only be valid on Monday March 28th, 2011 so be sure to stop by and get your new set!

Our move went great and I am so excited to get back to work on my sets! I missed being able to design but it was also nice to have a bit of a break too:) I will be starting up my Monday blogs again next week and they will be jam packed with lots of information not only about my shop but with information on how to make your shop great:)

I want to give a huge thank you to everyone for being patient with my while my family and I made our move to our new home. You have all been so great and I appreciate it!

Friday, February 25, 2011

It's almost time

So as some of you know, my family and I are preparing to move into our first house! I am super excited and can't wait to get out of our tiny apartment. Of course, with so much to do I will be closing my shop for a bit. I put it in vacation mode today and it will stay this way the entire month of March.

There are some updates to the shop I wanted to keep everyone up to date with. I have finally finished adding all of my listings. There is now a premium shop set to accompany every basic set. You can now see what the business card  and label designs will look like. Also, you can add a made to match Business Marketing Kit listing to your cart and match all of those items to any set in my shop.

Also, when I come back in March be on the lookout for some new fun spring designs. I have about 7 sets that I have started and will be posting. There will be more that I am going to make but those are all I have for now.

One more thing before I go. I will be posting a grand re-opening 25% off coupon code before I get back to be on the lookout for that. I will post it here on my blog, on Facebook, Twitter and in the sale section of my website. You can use this coupon code on anything in my shop. This includes business card design, a new shop set or that bow card you've had your eye on;)

That is all from me for now. I just wanted to keep all of my amazing customers and followers updated. I may even post a photo of our new place...stay tuned to find out!!!

Monday Meetup!

So I am a member of the AH-mazing team called Homefront. I am doing my Monday Meetup and answering some fun questions. This is SO fun! So here we go!


1. Do you like to celebrate Valentine's Day or do you cringe at the thought of Cupid?



I actually don't mind Valentine's day at all. I think it can be romantic if the couple wants it to be. I think at this stage of my life I am not really into it as much as I was in the past.
2. Are you a flowers or candy kind of person? Or do you prefer something handmade? Candy for sure, as long as it is Lindt truffles, can you say YUM?! I do think that when my girls are in school we will probably do something handmade, that kind of thing is always so fun!
3. What's your most memorable Valentine's Day story? When my husband and I were dating he surprised me with the gorgeous bouquet of flowers. I had never had anything like it and was absolutely blown away at his thoughtfulness. Now if I could get him to do that now, lol!


Happy Valentines Day everyone!

New Stuff!

I know I didn't do my usual Monday write up yesterday but my kids and myself are all sick(yuck). I did want to let everyone know that today and the rest of the week I will be working on adding some new stuff to my shop. Here is a hint: Plum, charcoal and pink;)

I will be sure to post a preview on here so everyone can see what I'm up to:)

Busy Busy Busy!

Okay ya'll, it's Monday and things are getting off to a bumpy start...but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. I know I told you a while back about a free site called Etsyonsale.com and how great it was. Well, I just discovered today that it's not so great and not so free anymore either:/

I went to take my sale down and discovered that you now have to purchase credits to use the service. I guess I wouldn't be to upset to buy the credits but this service was pretty much just a want not a need. I don't need to use it especially since Etsy now has coupon codes. If I want to put something on sale I can just offer a coupon code and guess how much that costs? Yep, you got it a big whopping nothing. (another reason I love Etsy so much). Another downer to this site is that once you put your items on sale and you decide to take the sale down early, your listings will stay as is. I think this is also the case if you let the sale run it's course. I needed to change some things and ended up having to edit every single listing in my shop that said "on sale" as well as the price. My recommendation: don't use etsy on sale unless you have the extra cash. Even then I don't think it is worth it but maybe down the road I might consider it.

Anywho, I wanted to share my exciting news with all of you! Our offer on the house was accepted and we are set to move in early March. We have the inspection this weekend and I am really excited to see our home again. Now that we have some dates in hand I will be putting my shop on vacation on February 18, 2011. If you need a shop set before then now is a great time to get one:)


Today's tip is all about customer service. When a customer purchases a product from you it is important that you give them good customer service so that they will come back and purchase from you again. Another good tip that goes along with this is your packaging. Maybe wrap their item in a nice bow or enclose a gift certificate/coupon for a discount on their next purchase. This is a great way to let your customers know that you care:)

I think that is all from me for today. As I said before I will be on vacation in less than a month so get your shop sets now!!!

Wednesday, January 19, 2011

I'm back!

So after taking a few days off to rest I am feeling MUCH better! Thank you all who sent me well wishes, it was truly appreciated:) Now that I am back I just wanted to give everyone a run down of the events of the next couple of weeks.

I will be editing all of the listings in my shop. This will include updated font lists and how to purchase a made to match listing. There is probably more that I am forgetting but those are the top two for now.

I will also be adding more made to match options. There will now be made to match listings for the following items:


*Banner
*Avatar
* Business Card Design
* Blog Banner
* Website Banner
* Fabric Label Design
* Sticker Design(any size)
* Return Address Label Design
* Product/Bow Card Design
* Gift Certificate Design
* Web Ad
* Business Marketing Kit
* Post Card Design

 The newest addition to the list is the Business Marketing Kit. It comes with the following items and any set can be converted into a BMK.

3 Banners(Main shop banner, sale banner, vacation banner)
6 Avatars(Main shop avatar, sale avatar, vacation avatar, reserved avatar, thank you avatar, new items avatar, custom order avatar)
1 Return Address Label Design (jpg file, you print)
1 Business Card Design(jpg file, you print)
1 Sticker design(your choice of size;jpg file, you print)
1 Blog Banner or Blog Button
1 Post Card OR Bow Card Design(jpg file, you print)
1 Gift Certificate Design(jpg file, you print)

As some of you already know, my family and I are moving in late February. I will be putting my shop on vacation for at least two weeks during this time. Once everything is moved and we are settled in I plan on doing some website work as well as working on some new designs for spring. I will not be available to answer convo's for a few days while our internet is down but I promise I will get back to anyone that has a question:)

I have been working very hard to get all sets to have a basic and premium listing. It is proving to be a lot of work and very time consuming but I have the first two pages of my shop finished. I just have to tackle the last two and I'm all finished. In the future I will be creating both listings when I add a new set to my shop, just to make it easier:)

Don't forget, you can change any shop set to reflect any font you would like. You can visit www.dafont.com or browse through my shop if you don't see a font you like in the listing.

I think that is all for now. I will keep you all updated on exact dates my shop will be closed. If you are thinking about purchasing a shop set, now would be the time to do it since I will be gone for a few weeks:)

Monday, January 17, 2011

Sick

Yuck. I know Monday's are my blog days but I'm feeling a little bit under the weather. I've been so busy and haven't taken any time to rest and now it has caught up with me. I will be returning Wednesday with a new blog full of goodness:) Until then my shop is on vacation as well.

300 Sales say what?!

That's right! This weekend SRDS reached it's 300th sale! I never thought I would see the day where my shop would have that many sales. I would like to thank everyone that has supported me and my shop. Us Navy wives can't really get a regular 9-5 so it's such an amazing feeling to know that I can stay home with my kids as well as have an extra income. Thank you all again!

To celebrate 300 sales I wanted to share a coupon code to all of you lovely etsy shoppers. Use code 300SALECELEBRATION to get 10% off any order. This coupon is only good until January 12, 2011 so hurry up and get your set!

I also wanted to remind everyone that my shop will be on vacation starting around February 10th or so. I'm not sure exactly when I will be putting everything on hold. We still haven't heard back from the bank on our house so I will keep everyone updated on when the shop will be on vacation. I will probably have it on vaca for about 2 weeks or maybe more, I'm still undecided. I have a lot of re-working of my website and shop to do so we will see. It would be best if you are thinking about purchasing a set to do it now instead of later since I am unsure about how long I will be gone:) I will make sure I let all of you know though.

For today's tip I am going to write a little bit about blogging(and it's here, in my blog, haha!). All jokes aside, blogging is a great way to get the word out about your business. I like to use my blog to let possible customers know about upcoming sales, new items and even promotions. I love using my blog to help other sellers too and that is why I always add a tips and tricks section for new sellers. I've been using Etsy for about 2 years and when I first started out I was pretty clueless in comparison to now. I didn't use all of my tags when listing items for sale, I didn't blog, I didn't belong to a team. I just thought, hey I will list this item for sale and everyone will want it! Wrong-o. You have to use things like blogging, twitter and facebook to get your name out there. And now I am going to use my blog to show you some new designs I have made, yay for blogging!




So there you have it. I will be taking some time to develop some new designs when my shop in on vacation. I hope to have another 10 shop sets available to you by the beginning of March. Thank you again everyone for your continued support, it is REALLY appreciated!

Monday, January 3, 2011

Happy New Year!

Happy new year to everyone! The new year is starting off on the right foot over here at SRDS. My new years sale was a huge success and now I just have to get caught up on all of the orders, which I will be doing today. I have a list a mile long to finish but I think I can do it!

Speaking of doing things, I wanted to share my 365 blog with you all. A 365 blog is where you take a photo every day for the whole year and post it into a blog. I made a separate blog for this and you can see it  here http://letsdothis365blog.blogspot.com/ I am super proud of it and I am excited to start posting!

For today's super Monday tip I am going to discuss team's on Etsy. Being a part of a team is a great way for you to promote your shop as well as promote your team member's shops. I belong to a team called Homefront Team and it is made up of military spouses. It is such a great team because we can all support each other since we are all going through the same difficult times. There are a lot of teams out there but if you can't find one that suits you, start your own!

New in my shop is made to match items. I know I have discussed this before but I want to go into more detail with it. I have been getting a lot of convo's lately where a buyer would like to purchase a shop set along with a bow card and web ad. I have made this VERY easy for you all to do! Just add the shop set you would like to your cart and then visit the made to match section. Find the made to match items you would like and add them to your cart as well. I have also made the made to match listings for banners and avatars as well. If you are a shop just starting out and only need a banner, you can purchase it for $5.00. The listing is only for a single banner and it can be the main shop banner, sale banner or a vacation banner. If you would like all three I would suggest purchasing a basic shop set. These are very affordable and come with 3 banners and 5 avatars! But as I said, if you are on a tight budget you can purchase just the banner to get started. The same goes for the avatars.

I am also happy to report that I am making some headway on getting a basic and premium listing for every set in my shop. I like the fact that I can offer the premium sets along side the basic sets so you the customer can see what the business card design will look like. Remember, the orientation can always be changed as well, just let me know prior to checking out. I still have a handful of designs to make into premium/basic shop sets but I'm getting there!


I hope everyone had a great new year. I myself have made a small-ish list of things to do not only this year but in all of the years to come. I am not making any new years resolutions, but rather new life resolutions. Your life is what you make it so go out there, do what you love and have fun!
