Back when I only had one munchkin and my hands were not quite as full, I had a little shop over on Etsy. Babies like lots and lots of attention, so I set my shop to ‘vacation’ mode and took a “maternity leave” so to speak.
Okay, so I didn’t actually think about my Etsy shop for 8 whole months. That’s not important.
Recently, though, my handsome hubby has been encouraging me to open my shop back up. I wasn’t sure because I have two children and only one of me. My hands are kind of full. After he promised a hundred times to be the best production assistant in the history of Etsy shops, I agreed to give it another go.
A couple of weeks ago, my dashing production assistant and I sat down during nap time and got to work. What do we have to show for it?
I offer a selection of button earrings in a variety of funky and modern prints. They measure just over half an inch — 5/8″ to be exact — and look great on everyone. If you don’t see something you like, you’re welcome to contact me with suggestions of prints and colors that I should include.
I made a couple of big changes before opening my shop this time.
1) I now use nickel-free, surgical steel posts on every pair of earrings. This means that those of you with sensitive ears can wear them without worrying about having a reaction.
2) Packaging — Last time I wrapped each pair of earrings in bubble wrap, stuck it in a bubble mailer, and hoped for the best. After a few pairs damaged (Thanks, USPS), I decided I needed a new plan. Instead of wrapping things in bubble wrap, I have invested in cute little boxes. I feel a lot better about sending my little baubles off into the great unknown now that they’ll be snug as a bug in sturdier packaging.
This is my other production assistant. He’s pretty darn adorable.
