Handmade Artists' Shop (HAFshop) / Valentines!
« on: January 05, 2011, 06:50:52 PM »
Have you started listing Valentines yet? I just put my first in my shop:

These are new this year, but other printable Valentines I had last year did really well on Etsy, so hopefully I can get some traffic here this year. :)

General Discussion / An offer--if you need graphic design work
« on: December 22, 2010, 11:21:57 AM »
Hi all! I've officially slowed down for the holidays, but the crazy school & work schedule here still has my family busy up until tomorrow night.

So I have free time! And I'm in a giving spirit! lol
If you need any graphic design work done, I'd love to help, free of charge. As long as you're reasonable! :) I'm not going to create a logo for free, for example. But an ad maybe? If you need something like is on the sides here or help with a banner, putting together a postcard featuring your work so you can advertise in the new year, etc. You name it.

Hope everyone is having a very happy holiday season!

General Discussion / Do you sell DIY patterns/printables?
« on: September 27, 2010, 09:58:09 AM »
I think a lot of us are trying to save money this year while we're planning for the holidays. I was looking into patterns--some toys/plushies I could make for my children & I stumbled on so many awesome patterns out there!
So I've just started a collection on my blog. So far they're all from Etsy.
This would be an awesome way to promote shops here! So if you have any patterns/printables you sell, will you let me know? I'd love to feature you.

General Discussion / Need Some Advice
« on: August 23, 2010, 10:28:05 AM »
I really love having a shop here, but haven't had a ton of time to promote or fill it up. I have my own website, my blog, and then two shops on Etsy.

So I'm trying to 'trim the fat'...
My two Etsy shops:
http://bitsycreations.etsy.com
http://bitsysgreetings.etsy.com

I initially opened my 2nd shop for greetings with the mindset that it was too confusing to keep all my graphic design work and my invitations/greetings together.

But now I frequently have repeat customers for graphic design work who say "OH I never knew you made invitations..." or whatever the case is.

What do you think? Should I go back to just one shop or would that be a very full, very confusing shop?

What else can I be doing so I'm not losing my mind trying to promote everything?

General Discussion / Any Work at Home Moms? Feature on my blog...
« on: June 09, 2010, 08:11:28 AM »
Hi all! If you're a work at home mom, would you like to be featured on my blog this summer? I did a handful of features last summer & it was a big hit. It was so good for other moms to get some business suggestions for the summer while our kids are out of school, etc. And it was an excellent way to introduce new businesses.

Let me know if you're interested. :) I'd love to get some HAF shops on there!

Creative Creations / 2010 Desk Calendar
« on: December 27, 2009, 05:26:14 PM »
I've been wanting to create desk calendars for about four years now & I finally did it!! I got a late start so I figured I'd use them just as gifts for the holidays--I gave some to my daughter's preschool teachers and they LOVED them, gave a few to close friends, etc. so I thought I'd list. Doing great so far, so I thought I'd share. I think I'll try some different designs for next year, too, so my customers can choose. :)

Creative Creations / My latest invitations
« on: July 09, 2009, 08:56:37 AM »
Hi all! I'm pretty new here, so I thought I'd post what I've been up to lately. :) I do a lot of graphic design for other people (small businesses who need logos, etc.) so when I have the opportunity to design for myself, I thoroughly enjoy myself!!

Here are some invitations I finished recently.
