Truly Thankful

On the day when we give thanks, I am thankful for a husband who supports my small business dream and for friends and customers who purchase my items.

This morning I woke up to an Etsy order. This customer has been looking for a bracelet that had a specific saying for a long time and was not able to find it.

She ordered the personalized cuff and asked if I could stamp "The bond between a mother and daughter begins and ends with love." Immediately, I started counting letters and spacing and was worried that I, too, would not be able to do this for her. I messaged her and asked if I could use the "&" sign instead of the word "and." (This would allow me to save spacing and give me a better chance of being able to fulfill the order.) The customer messaged back that she would really like "and" spelled out, but would be okay with the "&" sign if that was the only way I could fit it.

Well, I decided to take a chance and just go for it. Worst case scenario, I could use it as a tax right off.

This happened on the first try:

Retitling My Listings

This business venture started because I saw necklaces for moms on Etsy and thought, "why are they so expensive, that can't be that hard to do, can it?"

Today, this request happened:

A fellow shop owner on Etsy contacted me wondering if I could take my "Mom" necklace and make a necklace for one of her employees. This led me to rethink my listing titles, because ultimately I am selling a personalized necklace and it doesn't have to be mom specific.

Thanks to Cyprianne at Speckled Frog Crochet for your business and the order, which led me to retitle some of my offerings.

"Overcome" Bracelet

The beauty about Etsy is that potential customers can contact you and make customized requests. This happens to me on a monthly basis. The majority of the time, I am able to accommodate the requests.

A couple of days ago, a prospective buyer contacted me and had a specific idea that she wanted to bring to life. While I am not sure of the reasoning behind this idea, the buyer had a specific date she needed it by, so I have a feeling it is a gift to symbolize an important moment in someone's life.

"Overcome" is centered on the bracelet and on one end she requested I stamp the heart with the cross inside. On the opposite end I stamped the bible verse "John 16:33"
