Yesterday was our one-year-anniversary of being open. I just can't believe it. I feel like I should be doing something special, like baking a cake or getting some balloons, or maybe even a dozen roses for my store. I wonder if the store would appreciate that...
This week, though things have been busy for me but really slow on the new items field. Orders have been flying in for holiday gifts. I don't even know how many gift receipts I've printed the last two weeks. It's insane.
I appreciate everyone who is ordering well in advance. This makes my job a lot easier! :) I'm going to put this out there now: there are deadlines for guaranteed holiday arrivals. The LAST day that I'm shipping orders for Christmas arrival with standard shipping is for any orders made by December 18th. For RUSH, your last day to order for Christmas arrival is December 21st before 3:00 PM PST.
More Gift Tag Sheets
What I DID get done this week was filling lots of orders. I also designed a couple more gift tags for purchase. So far we have Chameleons, Ball Pythons, Axolotls and Crested Geckos. This weekend I hope to add TEN more gift tag designs. We're still on schedule for purse, coffee mug cozy and wrapping paper debuts next week, too. Oh yeah! Pluggin' right along.
End of November Cyber Sale
Black Friday is popular for brick and mortar shops. Since I'm an Etsy Entrepreneur I am going to do the Cyber Monday instead. But, this year I'm doing it for TWO days. You have TWO days to get in on deals from our store. During these two days I am taking custom items out of the store for less confusion.
Custom items aren't part of the sale, but any other items are free for purchase with our Cyber Sunday-Monday-Funday Sale. The coupon code is COOLCYBER2014 and it's only good from 12:01 AM November 30th to 12:01 AM December 2nd. Times are in PST.
That's all I've got for this week. I should have a much larger update next week! See you then and Happy Sticking!
