WarmTidings – What I’ve been up to

So not only have I been moving across the country I have continuously been fulfilling orders on my Etsy site WarmTidings (www.etsy.com/shop/WarmTidings).  I can’t believe that I am up to 57 orders already and the shop has been open since March.

Along with fulfilling orders I have come up with some new designs of wedding invitations to add to my listings.  I figure the more I have the more traffic I will get.  So I created some traditional invitations to hopefully suite the needs of the masses.  As always with my invites that colors, font and wording can be customized.

Here they are.  Click on the picture to go to the site.

Next things on the list to create are some Halloween themed invites for parties, birthdays and weddings.  Which actually I just came up with that idea as I was typing this up.

I also started creating invites for winter weddings.  Crazy to think that winter weddings are just around the corner.  Here is what I came up with.

Winter Wedding 1

I am also creating a super special birthday invite for a friend.  So much to manage but I love it.  Nothing better than being able to put your stamp on somebody’s special event!!

Hope you like the invites, as always I welcome feedback!!

Thanks for visiting!

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!

Do you want to build a snowman? – Party Activity

I am loving the Etsy business and the creativity of my customers; today was no exception.   Instead of creating an invitation to the party this customer wanted an activity for their Frozen party.  They wanted all of the text removed and at the top have it say…

Do you want to build a snowman?

Then under the text would be where each guest drew their very own Olaf the snowman.

How cool of an idea is that??

Here is what the project looked like.  The file I created was a 5×7 but I could totally see it being an 8.5×11 to give ample drawing room.

This just adds to the things that I can do with custom orders at my shop WarmTidings.   Check out what I have today!!

I don’t charge extra for customization.  All digital cards are just $5

Coming up tomorrow…

Water Bottle Labels!!!

See you tomorrow.  Happy Memorial Day everybody.

Warm Tidings – now creating Wedding invitations

1891603_651605174895386_98081938_oI got asked by a friend of my sister’s to create her wedding invite.  Because I am always up for the challenge I was happy to help her out.    She showed me some ideas that she had and what she liked so then I ran with it. After about a week of work (that’s with working and fulfilling other orders) I got her a first pass and she was so happy with the results.

If you or somebody you know are looking for custom wedding invites, save the dates, or anything else please feel free to send me a note on etsy at www.etsy.com/shop/warmtidings by clicking on Contact the shop owner on the left.

I try really had to keep the invite cost to be right around $1.50 per invite.  That includes all envelopes and enclosures and my “creative time”  I will have them printed and I will send them to you if you don’t live near me.   If you know what you want and have all of your information we could have printed invites within 2 weeks.

Please check out my shop for some other things I have created.  I am working on some mock ups of invites and I will be posting those soon!

Hope you will check out the store and let me know if you are interested in any of my services  🙂
