You may well be wondering where I've been for the last couple of weeks and the answer is simple. Sat at my desk surrounded by tissue, ribbon and scellotape! On the 17th my "Lacy" bracelet was featured on Etsys Weekend deals email and I have had 38 sales since then! It has been a a delight wrapping all these pieces of jewellery and writing little notes and sending them off to their new owners all around the world.
Once I got all my packages shipped I decided I needed to do a little stock take of supplies and work out what items I needed to restock. So I've had lots of little packages arrive in the last couple of days with beautiful little charms and chains.
I have also had 3 new wholesale orders and have just started working on an excisting wholesale re-order. The customer is looking for lots of pieces from my shop so I'm working on new designs to replace them with, to try and keep my listings at about 80. So I have been juggling creating new pieces and filling these orders. During all this I have decided that it is time for a bit of re-branding so I have designed a new logo, headed paper and inserts for the boxes for my jewels to hang on. I'll let you see them when the boxes arrive.
My ation plan for the next 2 weeks is:
-Make, package and ship all my wholesale orders
-Design, make, list 20 new pieces for the shop
-Design a gift certificate for the shop
-Make up a daily check list for marketing and promotional things I want to do each day
I'll let you know how I'm getting on x
