I went a little shop happy at Michael’s clearance yesterday! I spent about $150 but got ALL THIS! (Okay I had some of that ribbon already, and a few of the flowers too).
I reorganized my craft closet a bit to fit in a good amount of my overflow. I got rid of about a box full of SU catalogs and forms (since I don’t think I will be restarting that business). You can see pics of the before stash here. It looks much prettier now :).
I am fully determined to get my Etsy shop up and running before Christmas this year! (I know I have said that many times, but this time I have a plan!) Any good shop name ideas incorporating my nickname?
I plan on carrying some pretty jewelry, hand stamped notecards and greeting cards, custom capes and tutu’s (like this one – too bad she couldn’t stop twirling long enough for me to get a good shot), custom diapercakes, notecards, hairclips, burpcloths and bibs, and maybe some felt toys once I come up with some patterns of my own.
I also plan on selling some crafting supplies I make with my Sizzex Bigshot and my Xyron.
Ooo and I just got a great idea from Penelope’s Oasis for something I might be able to make. I really want to use what I have to make a little spending cash.
How have you other Etsy mom-prenuars fared lately? Do you find that having a varied inventory is good or is it better to stick with one type of inventory? I have so much stuff and I feel like I need to use it all!
