the Petite Planner. Love how it came out.
Our sales in our Etsy shop were horrible though the worst they have ever been since I started. We have had some slow periods but nothing like this. Some people will say it was just the time of the year but last May was one of our best months ever so it didn't make any sense. I really feel that something has to have changed within Etsy but what?? I spent the majority of the month trying to figure that out and get our sales back. I still don't know the exact cause of the dramatic drop in sales but they finally picked up again the end of the month. They are still not where I want them to be though. The biggest problem is getting buyers to purchase more than 1 thing. I especially want to find a way to get the party decor to sell with the outfits. My 3 piece prop sets use to be a great seller now they hardly sell at all. I just don't understand it. I am going to continue to try and find a way to get these kinds of sales but if anyone has any suggestions in the meantime let us know. Something positive to share though we got this great photo of a buyers twins wearing a custom twin set and matching banner. Aren't they adorable?
We didn't do anything special for Mother's Day because I don't really like to make a big deal out of it because I am just grateful to be a mom but Emilia got me these pens from Kelly Creates anyways. I love her products. Now I have all her pens. Rich got me the flowers.
I am a big fan of Karin Ipadletterings work and when I found out she was teaching an online class with Amanda Arneill called Ipad Bootcamp I could not pass up the chance to take it even though it was not really in my budget. I am still working my way through the course but so far I have enjoyed it. Here are a few things I have done.
Finally these Paleo ginger peach muffins are great for breakfast or a late night snack. You can get the recipe here.
