I am so excited to announce that our Etsy shop is now officially open! If you've been reading the blog then you know that we've been working on this for a while. And let me tell you it's been work! I really had no idea what is involved in opening up a shop. It's a lot like when I started the blog. Learn as you go. Be patient and flexible. If somethings works - keep doing it and if it doesn't, change it!
Our shop is called Nirvana Designs and it's development has been a somewhat organic process. I learned how to crochet, started writing about it and the blog was born. I took up knitting and wrote about that. As I learn things I like to share them with you. It's a way for me to record my experiences and hopefully lend a hand to you along the way. My husband ties flies for fishing. It's small, precise work. One day I admired the beaded earrings a patron at the library was wearing. It turns out her daughter made them. I thought we can do that! And so we did. With John's amazing dexterity and my creative motivation we began making earrings. Then came stitch markers. And more jewelry. It's fun and a terrific way for us to share a hobby. We didn't set out to sell anything, but since we've pretty much saturated our friends and family with gifts and we're not ready to stop making things a Etsy shopped sounds like the obvious next step.
For nearly a year we have been refining our techniques, searching for raw materials and slowly building our inventory. The past month I've been doing product photography and learning about Etsy. Believe me there is a lot to learn! Thankfully there are plenty of books available and more importantly, the site is designed for people just like us.
Now after more that 1000 pictures and many hours on the computer we are happy to welcome you to our grand opening. We're hopeful that you'll take a look at what we've been busy making. To break the ice, we're offering 50% off your first purchase. Use the coupon code: WELCOME at checkout. Initially we're only listing our stitch markers. The jewelery collection is coming next and eventually I hope to offer a selection of knit and crochet pieces.
We're having a great time with our new project and we're looking forward to learning, growing and finding our place in the world of Etsy boutiques! Drop in for a browse and maybe even treat yourself to a little something!
Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing a bit of your day with me.
Until next time friends,
Be blessed and stitch & read with love!
