March Diary

Hmm, March was a pretty effective month I think.

I especially focussed on the shop: all the item information and visuals have been updated, I have worked on marketing and today and Saturday two new banners will be added to the shop.

Besides that there was my internship that kept going, although I couldn’t do that many practical things for that.

And we had a festivity: my 29th birthday! This was during the Easter weekend, so it was a nice combination meeting family and friends and being grateful. A time to relax and fun, to re-energise and enjoy the little signs of Spring making it’s way here.

All together March was a good month and here’s some pictures that proof it. 🙂 (more…)

How about something custom made for you?

That’s what a few of my customers thought when they came to the Handmade to Celebrate Etsy shop.

3 Weeks of Free

After a few busy weeks of learning for and taking my first exams of this study, it’s now time to relax and enjoy.

I have got 3 weeks of nothing ahead of me. Ok, only one day of school, but that doesn’t really count.
 I’ve already spilled two days of them, doing nothing that I wanted to do.
So I had to step up, make a plan and write it down. Yes, I even wrote down the fun stuff, because otherwise there’s a big chance I won’t even do that.
Now there’s the obvious stuff of cleaning the house, doing laundry & all. Not really interesting.
But I’m happy to share with you the fun stuff planned and the things I’ve been wanting to do a long time blog- and shop-wise.

5 Things I Learned from my First Etsy Pop-up Shop

A week ago I’ve been traveling a long way to go see my Etsy products in a real life shop and help out there.
It’s been great to see all the products from all the participants and be able to run the shop for a few hours on my own.
If you ever get the chance to do such a thing, go ahead and do it. It’s a great experience.
Here are five things I’ve learned from participating and helping out. (more…)
