Today's my Etsyversary!

One year ago today I created my shop. I didn't actually start selling until November, but I remember well now nervous I was setting up the shop. I had NO idea what I was doing or what I was in for at that time.



I try very hard to keep my Etsy shop and my blog separate. I never want my blog to become a giant commercial for my shop and I think I do a fairly good job of doing that.

To celebrate my Etsyversary I'm doing two things:

First up, I'm having a sale in my shop. From now until midnight on Friday any purchases from my store will be shipped for FREE!! All you need to do is write "Happy Etsyversary" in the note to seller section when checking out and I will send a revised invoice through paypal. If you make a purchase, please wait until I send the updated invoice before paying!

And secondly, I'm having another give-away. You could win any item of your choice from the shop. All you need to do to enter is leave a comment telling me what your favourite item is and I'll make the draw on Monday.

I've had so much fun with my Etsy shop and I've "met" so many great people along the way. I hope it's around for another year!

It would be too hard to choose what my favorite thing is. I think I like the brown & blue starburst pendant. Or the black square one. Or the black round one. Or the ...

Happy Etsyversary! I think maybe my favorite thing is the snowman gift tags. At least, that's what it is today. I like a lot of your things. I'm thinking maybe of giving some change purses as christmas gifts, but I haven't really gotten that far in my planning yet ;-)

Loving the little change purses always, as you know tried to make my own! Not the best first attempt. Loving the Gocco stuff as well... so much to choose from!!

Janice said...

Happy Etsyversary!!! It was so hard to choose one favourite in your store as there are so many beautiful things. But if I have to choose one it is the beige floral tote. I have just started an etsy store and am still waiting/hoping for my first sale. I hhope I'm half as successful as you after one year.

Dallas said...

Happy Etsyversary! Your creations are so inspiring. I think my favorite item is your new wallets that you just posted, especially the squirrel design.

Chelsea said...

Happy Etsyversary! I have bought from you before (and recieved things from a swap) and absolutly LOVE your work! So hmmm, if I could pick one thing from your shop it would have to be the cute little mushroom magnets. Those are just adorable!

Felicia said...

Happy Etsyversary! Looks like you made a few sales already. Congrats!

Karen said...

Happy Etsyversary! I love the little blue floral wallet in your Etsy shop, but everything you've placed there is pretty and clever. Thank you, and again, congratulations! :-)

KEnzie said...

Happy, happy etsyversary to you! Congrats!

I love the bag with dots on tops and a fun floral print with black background! her, it would find a happy home! I think my daughter would make good use of it as her school bag!

Keep up the fine work! Love looking at the new stuff you produce!

Jenni-Raie said...

congrat on the anniversary! i didn't sell anything in my shop until it had been open for almost a year. it was a VERY exciting day when i got that first email notification.

and i agree - you do keep your etsy shop separate! i didn't know about half the stuff you have in there. this is my favourite: Bird Note Cards with Ric Rac.

now tell me where are you from again? St. C? would you do a craft show in chatham ever?

Eva said...

Congratulations! your etsy shop is full of beautiful goodies, I love them all, but if I'd have to choose something I'd pick the Dotty Stitched Note Cards.

Chara Michele said...

Happy Etsyversary Karyn! :) I am so glad your shop has done well, you totally deserve it:)

Like I could really pick my favorite item in your shop... Um, I like the owl cards, then there is that quite squirrel wallet, and those bird note cards, plus all your cute totes! See I can't pick a favorite:)

Happy Etsyversary!!!

I love your newest listing, Xmas cards!

jessi said...

Congratulations!! I'm in love with your new Christmas Cards!

Holly said...

Congratulations!
Choosing just one favorite from your shop is really difficult! I think I'd have to say the pink and green notecards are my favorite.

Tsoniki said...

Wow, a year! Way to go!

My favorite has to be the pink daisies change purse (where did you get the fabric by the way?); or the pink and brown button pendant. For some reason I've been loving brown and pink lately!
