New Save the Date: Now on Etsy

 

I wanted to create something that had the menu board, inspired by the first wedding invite that I did.  Once I got the idea in my head I had to go hunting through my digital embellishments to figure out what I had and what I didn’t.   Turns out that I didn’t have any of it.   So it was time to create.

Using my friend Google image search I got ideas for the the menu board and the table and chairs.   It was for sure fun to create and it really took me out of my normal template type card.  I hope you like it.

Be sure to LIKE my facebook page The Crafty Organizer to see new items as I create them on Etsy.  More ideas for Weddings, Birthdays, and announcements coming soon.

How I bring my designs to life…Etsy life

I wanted to take a quick minute to explain how my invitations for the Etsy site WarmTidings to life.  I’m not always able to get a my laptop the minute I think of something new so I have to “write it down”

I don’t know if I will ever get away from using paper at some point in my creative process and that’s ok.   I have a number of sketches and if I draw it out then it’s faster for me to create something exciting if I see a “template”.

The biggest hangup I have is when I have a design idea and then once I get to a place where I can write it down I can’t remember what it is.  It’s so frustrating.

My laptop is always on and I am creating every chance I get.  This will help me keep my site fresh and exciting!

Now this is dedication, I am creating and fufilling orders while I’m cooking dinner.  If that’s not dedication I don’t know what is.

Latest Etsy site updates:

I created a second set of listings for each of the Wedding invites.  If you want just the digital copy and you are going to get them printed yourself then there is a listing for that.  What’s new is that if you want me to print them for you in sets of 100 then I have a specific listing for that as well.

I am so excited about this venture and I am hoping to really get some momentum!  If you have a minute please go and check out the site WarmTidings and please leave a comment to let me know what you like and don’t like.  What can I do better to be more appealing to customers?

I am creating some more things and will be sharing throughout the weekend and next wee so watch for those. 🙂

Coming up tomorrow a Bistro/Coffee shop Save the Date.  🙂

Thanks for stopping by today!

Etsy Site: First Wedding Invitation Delivered!

 

I am so excited that I got to hand deliver my first Wedding invitation.

I have never been so nervous to place and receive and order before in my life, but I could not have been happier with how they turned out.

Wedding Invitation

 

As you can see they turned out FANTASTIC.  So now it was time to take them to the bride.  So me and my son made the hike to take them to WI.  He was very much anticipating the FROZEN party that he got to go to that day, but I told him we had one stop to make and the he could get a cookie if he was good in the car.  I was actually hoping he would nap but didn’t…ugh.  So anyway, we get there and I show them to the bride and…

She LOVED them!!!!!   You have no idea how happy that made me.

I am so excited to do more weddings and be able to create something for these brides (and grooms) for their special day.

I currently have 4 Fall themed wedding invites up for sale on my Etsy Site.  www.etsy.com/shop/WarmTidings.  I have ideas for more it’s just getting the time to actually create them.  There will be a post on that later.

  • $150 Listing (+$10 Shipping) for 100 invites, 100 White Envelopes, 100 RSVP postcards

Managing an Etsy Site…What it takes to make it successful

I am still trying to get my Etsy site up and running.  I have had orders but would love to have orders for some of my higher ticket items.   I don’t want to give them away but at the same time, I don’t want to break the bank for my customers.  I wouldn’t spend a ton on this stuff so I can’t ask my customers to.  At least, not at this point because I am just starting out.

As you have seen in previous posts I am now creating custom wedding invitations.   I have some new examples below.  Be sure to check it out and if you know ANYBODY getting married or getting engaged please forward them to me.  I would be happy to create all of their invitations, place cards, etc.

I believe that custom things don’t have to be expensive.    Designed wedding invites that you print yourself are $30.  If you want me to get them printed for you then it’s $1.50 per invite, which includes, invitation with envelope and RSVP as a post card.

Hope you like the design, would love any feedback that you have!!!

See you later in the week with some more creations!!!!

Preparing for the week…kind of overwhelming

Happy JUNE everybody.  I can’t believe it’s June already.    Every week I kind of get excited to write down my to do list of things I want to accomplish and by the time I am done writing everything down I am overwhelmed and exhausted.

So the goal is to take things one step at a time.  The world isn’t going to end if I don’t get everything done that night.    So there are a lot of things that I want to accomplish this week.  It may mean some later nights but I am determined to get things done.

I am ready for the at least tomorrow.  Clothes laid out, lunch made, bag packed.   Now I just need to get up on time tomorrow morning and all will be off to a good start.

Hope everybody has a great week.  I have a couple of things up my sleeve this week so stay tuned for some new posts coming!!!!!

Talk to you soon!
