Groundhog Day

I have been lax in my blogging, so I guess I am already failing my resolution of writing in my blog more often. But I have been productive! I had a request for three of my "Letter to Santa" mailbox ornament. That was thrilling! I didn't even think of offering to personalize the letter to someone as well as selling it as it is, so I now have a new offering!

Letter to Santa Mailbox in my Etsy shop.

I have been trying the current Etsy shop makeover to make my shop more appealing. There are several challenges each week. I have changed the way I am doing my photos and have added some backgrounds, and I am working on taking new photos of all items in my shop. I have only just begun, and it's a more difficult challenge than I thought. I am also rewriting the copy with each those items that have been changed and am trying to create a story to go with each item. Some are easier to write than others, and it's a work in progress.

I have a new idea for an item in my shop but am still trying to work out if it's doable. I also need to work on more of the month flower boxes that I have, there are twelve boxes total, one for each month. I have been trying to personalize them, but it isn't an easy task - there's no room on the tops with the flowers and it doesn't seem to work on the side, so I'll keep at it. I might add a tag or piece of the flower that hangs off the side with a place for a name.
