New Adventures!

Good afternoon All!

As I am working on my newest Etsy adventure, I thought to myself how truly wonderful it all is.  I get to work/create items that I love all from the comfort of my own studio and my little but comfy shop, is there anything better?  I just LOVE LOVE LOVE the direction that my life has taken.  While having one's own business is life consuming I wouldn't want it any other way.  I truly get up every day and rush to get the day started.

Last year I had an idea to create Bulk Party Favor Listings on Etsy.  That seems to be the direction that my wonderful customers are taking me and I couldn't be happier.  Not only do I love planning parties and events, I get to be a part of someone else's special occasion.

I went to work creating a spreadsheet filled with pricing, shipping info and all of the listing details.  Then I set to work listing, I am embarrassed to say that I only listed 5 or so items then the Holiday Rush hit!  And boy did I run with it, while I filled orders I had placed this idea on the back burner.

Fast forward to March and the thought resurfaced.  However I wanted to really display my photo's in a different style.  I started by downloading a few picture editor programs and experimenting..it dawned on me that I had a computer program already installed that I was familiar with...helllllooooo LeeAnn!  I re-vamped my old spreadsheet to accommodate the new Shipping fee's and also added in New favors that hadn't made it to the list and away I went creating!

The first Photo/listing I created were the Alligator and Turtle Favors..now doesn't this just sound like fun?  I think it is the old preschool teacher in me thinking about themes that I know children and adults alike will love.
 Then it was on to the Bee Happy Bee's.  I am getting ready to make custom baby shower favors with these sweet little bee's. Can you see it now?  A Mommy to Bee Shower?  Precious!
 Of course we all need a "Chill Pill" every once in awhile, who doesn't?
 Dino's!!!  Oh my gosh!  I remember when the children in my class went on a Dinosaur adventure complete with paleontologist lights!  The fun we had!  Most definitely good times.  
Last year I made Baby showers with these sweet little monkeys.  They were for a gal that was having twins..the label read..."Monkey See, Monkey Do, Monica's Not Having One But Two".  Can you imagine?  How cute is that?
I am still working deligently on all of  my listings and hope to have them all listed online by mid May.  I then plan on using all my photo's to create a book so that my customers here at the shop can order their own custom favors.

If you would like to order favors/products for your special occasion they can be found here.  Or you can just stop on in at 511 Main St. Suite # 1, Alamosa CO 

Until next time!
