Shop Update

I cannot believe that it has only been 5 days since I last posted talking about my 10th sale. My shop has been on fire lately! As a result, I am up to 12 sales now, and have done 2 custom orders.


So I decided to give my shop a little love to accommodate for all this extra business.

For starters I re-added the Made-to-Order section of my shop. I originally got rid of it because I wasn't even sure if the materials required for the bows that were listed were still sold in stores. But now I have gone over every listing and picked out the ones that I know for sure I can still make for people.

Because of this, I have a few new listings in my shop!

That first bow is actually new - it's a variation of my existing pink bow, but I actually did it as a custom order in white recently. The customer said it was for her little girl's baptism, and the thought struck me that I need to be selling this bow in my shop on a permanent basis. I mean, people have baptisms and blessings and such all the time where they need to wear white. (I'm not religious, so I didn't even think about it!)

The yellow and turquoise/brown bow are relisted items that I had previously sold but now know I have/can get the materials for to do again. So glad to have these adorable bows back in my shop!

There are a few others that i would like to relist in the near future, but still have to see if I can find the materials necessary to make them. So keep checking back in to see if I have added something new! I am getting very close to my 101 in 1001 goal of listing 25 items in my shop!

10th Sale Celebration ~ Plus a New Halloween Bow!

I just crossed another couple of items off my 101 in 1001 list.

Fulfill 1 custom order.

Reach 10 sales.

I am so excited to finally be crossing these ones off my list! It was a big week for my humble shop! I had my first international sale, my first custom order, and my 10th sale all in the same purchase. It was such an awesome learning experience, and I am so happy to finally be seeing my sales in the double digits too! This is what I sent out:

This bow was already listed in my shop, but she asked if I could make her a 2nd one, which qualifies as a custom order! Not only that, it was sent to the UK! How awesome is that! Because of this I also discovered that my shop's international shipping rate was grossly inaccurate and had to change it. Whoops! Well, like I said - this was definitely a learning experience! My lovely customer also told me that these bows are being used by 2 excited bridesmaids at an upcoming Halloween wedding! So cool! I hope she sends me a picture!

So, since this bow was finally purchased, I realized I have NO Halloween products left in my shop! That is just outrageous - Halloween is one of my favorite holidays after all. So, of course, I had to whip up this beauty:

Candy corn bow! Hooray!

I think it turned out pretty stinkin' cute. Have you ever seen those little candy corn witch costumes for little girls? SO cute! I think this accessory would look really cute with something like that.

Well I guess that's it for now! I hope to be putting more Halloween bows up in my shop soon, as well as some CHRISTMAS stuff (yay!) so remember to keep checking out my shop which can be found on the right sidebar over here ------>

Thanks for stopping by!
