Again, it has been some time since I wrote.
I really need to do better with my blogging!
Unfortunately, I have been feeling somewhat overwhelmed these days! I don't know if it is the change in seasons, having, taxes due, completing special orders, having out of town visitors, making potential college visits, or just having too many volunteer obligations to fulfill, but suddenly I feel very much buried in my "to do list".
I am currently trying to rectify that. I will write a post in the next few days to let you know how I am doing!
One of the things on my "to do list" that I recently finished was summarizing my last year of jewelry sales. While compiling that, I made a list of states that I sent my handcrafted creations to my online customers. I sold to 35 different states! WOW! I thought that was awesome! On top of that, I sent out two international orders! These two orders went to British Columbia Canada and France! I was so pleased to learn this information!
Likewise, I am pleased to let you know that after the first quarter of 2012, I have already made two overseas shipments. One recent order was shipped to Australia! And just before that order went out, I shipped to the United Kingdom! I hope those international sales keep coming!
Special orders were up for me last year, as well. One of my most popular items was my wire wrapped rings. I expect that to continue. I also seem to be getting more orders from brides and did complete a custom order for a woman in Maryland, this time last year!
My jewelry creations are steadily gaining customers, both far and near. I have many plans for new pieces. To clear out and make room, I have started a nice sale that runs until 4/18/12. Everything in my etsy shop has been marked down for you by 30%!!! There are no coupon codes, no special entries to make; just click to place the item(s) in your cart and purchase.
