Holy cow I really need to be better at keeping up with you all.
First of all, as a catch up from my last post, the Linger Conference was AMAZING! I could go on and on and on about this, but I think I’ll save that for another post.
What I REALLY want to write about today is that I have opened an Etsy shop! I am SO excited to be doing this and to have a chance to do something great. To start off with I am just making banners for parties, special occasions, and just life in general. What first got me started doing this was making a banner for a friend’s bridal shower back in December. It was so simple, but I loved it. Then I made another one a couple of weeks ago for my future sister in law’s lingerie shower. Again, I really enjoyed making it, and I had TONS of people compliment it. A couple of my friends suggested that I sell it and maybe open up an Etsy shop. So, after contemplating it, I figured what the heck, why not?!
SO… I introduce to you… RossCreated! There’s nothing super creative about the name. My last name is Ross, and I’m creating stuff. Eventually I want to not only do banners, but other cool and crafty things so I didn’t want to limit myself with my shop name. Plus, I just like simple stuff. I am slightly obsessed with Hobby Lobby, so I’m always getting new and fun ideas, it’s just a matter of having the time (& of course MONEY) to do all these amazing things. I’ve always enjoyed making little crafts and decorations for around the house and for friends, and I love this banner thing. I will probably try my hand at making scarves and picture frames and cool stuff like that, but right now I’m gunna start out small and see how things go.
Any advice or comments I would greatly appreciate! Especially if you have an etsy shop. (I want to avoid pitfalls that other people experience to the best of my ability.) So here are a few pictures of stuff that I have made, and click HERE to see my shop!
