My online store

Standard

I am very excited to finally open up my own Etsy store.  I just added a button on the right side of my blog.  I am working now on making more inventory.  I really enjoyed making my latest dishcloth set which I called Sunshine & Rainbows which includes a starfish dishcloth and a dish-urchin scrubbie.  I used fun colors and sewed on little tags that can also be used to hang them on a hook.  This picture isn’t very good and hopefully I can get a better one tomorrow when the sun is up.

My store is called Creative Aspirations by DJC Stitches.  I am really enjoying the process of getting the store set up and dreaming and scheming up things to go in it.  I am concentrating on getting some dish cloth sets up and then I’ll work on some tatted items.

This is giving me something positive to focus on when I don’t feel well.      And this winter I wont be able to get out much since the cold weather always causes me to have more pain so I tend to stay inside all warm and cozy.

This is one of my Twenty Wishes too.  When I read the book Twenty Wishes by Debbie Macomber I started making a list too.  I haven’t actually gotten to 20 yet but I have achieved one of my wishes already which was to start my own craft store online.  I thought I would have to do a lot more work to get started but it was easier than I thought it was.  Now I am working on spreading the word.

I ordered a rubber stamp for making cards and tags for my items.  It has a really pretty filigree frame and has my shop name and website.  I’ll be able to use that on all my packaging and business cards.  It looks so professional and artistic.   I looked at several websites selling rubber stamps for that purpose and I just didn’t like any of them.  I ordered this one from another Etsy shop and all of her stuff is fantastic, not to mention less expensive.

Well I better get to sleep and tomorrow I’ll start working on more fun stuff for my shop.

  1. My only suggestion would be to take more pictures for people. Like with the purses–show the backs, the insides, etc. You get to post like 4 or 5 pictures, if I recall. People like to see what they are buying. And in the descriptions–tell the measurements-can’t remember if you did that or not. For the needlework, too. Best of luck on your new venture! 🙂 🙂
