Etsy Stock Take - Week Seven

Wish I had one at my own wedding!

Etsy Stock Take - Week Seven

UPDATE! Don't post your links here anymore, please click on the link to go over to the latest Etsy Stock Take! I plan to do this at the end of every calender week, so please look out for the newest post!

So, I was very excited last week because I received an enquiry about a custom order for a lovely lady here in Germany. Happily, she bought the listing (a wedding ring pillow) and her item is now ready to go in the post tomorrow morning.

Happy with the success of the little wedding ring pillow that I made last week, I decided to add a listing for the same design: A custom crochet wedding ring pillow: with a couple of custom options: the buyer can choose the colour and the stuffing, divine dried lavender flowers or polyfil pillow stuffing.

I activated the listing last night (I was tres organised! Normally Sunday morning is a scramble to get everything ready for Etsy Stock Take!) and was looking forward to writing this post this morning.

But, guess what?! The item sold!! It was only listed for a few hours... That's never happened to me before... Very excited. This little pillow is going to make it's way out to California.

But first I have to make it! The downside of custom orders is that you cannot just put them in an envelope and post them off... I have a month's wiggle room (I made sure to specify that in the listing) so it'll be fine.

Off I go to check supplies are all there.

What are you making this week? Do you like custom orders or do you feel the pressure?

Until next week,

Join me:

I hope that you fellow Etsian's will join me in showcasing your new items each Sunday (or anytime after that really!).  Let's blog hop!

You have 2 options:

1. Write a new post on your blog (telling us about your new items), title it Etsy Stock Take and link back here, using the Mr Linky Blog Hop widget thingy at the bottom of this post.

2. Post a link that goes directly to your new items in the Mr Linky Blog Hop widget thingy at the bottom of this post.

I will list the links to each week's stock take on my Etsy Stock Take page. Please go and have a browse!

It'd be lovely if you took a moment to go and check out some stuff that others post below. Let's show our support for each other craftwise!

I'm hoping that my goal of listing one item a week will be a powerful motivator and a source of promotion for us all...

What do you think?





Thanks for your comment! I would love to reply. Due to blogspot's slightly strange setup you'll only get to see my reply if you check back here in a day or two, or if you click on 'subscribe by email' under the comment box. Cheers!
