Confessions of a Shop Girl


Confession: I spend what seems to be an inordinate amount of time packaging orders for my Etsy shop. I'm not sure how it happens, but it can take me hours to get them ready to mail. It's fun, though, wrapping threads around packages, designing labels, and creating little thank-you gifts to tuck inside.... I'm sure I'll get more streamlined as time goes on, but for now I'm having fun doing it just the way I am.

I wasn't sure whether to add a few love-inspired cards on my Etsy site for Valentine's Day due to the turnaround time, but I finally decided to offer them for just this week. I only have a few left at this point, but they're there if you want to take a look.

I'm not very talkative tonight. I've been battling a headache today and still have several things to do to get ready for the week. I hope your week gets off to a great start though! Happy Monday!

I just think this is SO exciting Roban! I love that your shop is doing so well. I'm sorry about your headache though. I just ordered some cards that I hope look as good on paper as they do in my head! I hope I do 1/2 as good as you! xo feel better

were these wonderful cards all made from iPhone photos?

you gave me the name of the printing company you used, and maybe i navigated through it incorrectly, but i think all i saw was that they print iPhone photos?

i just love them and OMG your wrapping is perfection!!!
