Pumpkin Patch

Just added new pumpkin magnets, coasters and amigurumi to my Etsy shop today. The pumpkins were a lot of fun to make (other than the stems!).

Considering starting a “Magnet of the Month” that people can collect. I think that would be a lot of fun!

Building up stock

Working on more magnets along with some hair accessories. I will have flower and heart magnets, barrettes, and clips added once my shipment of magnets come in later this week.

I just added a beautiful cowl and a really pretty handbag to my Etsy shop. Please keep stopping by the shop to see new items!

Packages and more packages

I’ve received my business cards, letterhead, stamp, stickers, tissues paper, mailing bags, twine! I still have my banner, envelopes, magnets and a book on the way. It’s starting to look like a real business in here.

I also have yarn and projects all over the place. Time to get a little bit more organized!

First Sale!

Just made my first sale today through I am so excited that I cannot really express it. I am preparing the order for shipping tomorrow. I think I will have some happy tears when that first order ships out!

Flower Magnets

Finished up 54 flower magnets today. Only suffered two minor glue gun injuries (which were AFTER I figured out the hot glue gun won’t work without being plugged in ha ha!). Will be taking pics and posting to Etsy shortly!

Moving Along

Starting a new business is a lot of work! So far I have; created a Facebook Page, a Twitter account, an Etsy shop, applied for and received my tax ID, applied for and received my certificate to sell under the name of Shaped by Sara, and opened a business checking account. I have also ordered business cards, letterhead, envelopes, address labels, a business stamp, a banner and car magnets. Here and there I have manage to do some actual crochet!

This has been a whirlwind, and I can’t believe how fast I have gotten everything up and running. I still have so much work to do on the accounts and with stocking up on my merchandise, but at least things are functioning the way they need to.

Looking forward to making new connections in this new adventure!
