Hello! It’s been a long time since I uploaded some new items to my Etsy shop, Happy Scatter. The last time was May 2015! I can’t believe it’s been so long, but with starting a part time job in June plus all the volunteer work I do, I guess it’s not that surprising that my designing took a back seat for a while. I had started designing the new items ages ago but never got round to finishing them off and actually making them!
For the last month-or-so I’ve been joining in with Etsy Resolution, a bootcamp for Etsy shop owners. It’s been super inspiring and helped me to improve lots of areas of the shop like understanding SEO. It definitely helped give me a kick to get more items listed!
Here’s the new bits and pieces you can now find in the shop:
Fun huh? There’s 2 die cut cards sets (the ‘See The World’ travel set and the ‘Home’ set), 3 new stencils (the ‘Ahoy There’ anchors stencil, the ‘Wood Slice’ stencil, and the ‘Edgy Chevron Arrows’ stencil), and 3 new flair buttons sets (the ‘Time To Go’ travel flair, the ‘The Sea Is Calling Me’ flair, and the ‘Just Lovely’ flair).
My favourite new item is the anchors stencil. We do live by the beach so nautical items are always good here, plus I’ve always wanted to get an anchor tattoo. I’m just not brave enough. Adding these to my projects will keep me happy in the meantime:
The flair are all quite cute too though. I know I’m biased because I designed them! In my opinion the best one is the little shelf with cacti on. Which one do you like best?
I’ll be blogging some projects with these, as soon as I can squeeze in a bit of time for crafting!
One thing I should mention is that I have put the prices up on some of my items, due to an increase in manufacturing costs, and me not being very savvy about how much time things would really take to make when I started the shop. I’ve learnt that even if I’m using an electronic die cutter to cut things it still takes a lot of time to set the machine up, clean the sticky residue off stencils, package things up, on top of time spent designing things in the first place, etc, etc. I do actually want to earn a little bit of money for my time, which I’m sure you can all understand!
However I have also changed the price of postage so it will cost you LESS – it’s now a new low flat rate, so you can buy as many items from my shop as you like and the postage won’t increase per item like it used to.
I hope that all makes sense. Any questions let me know.
Thank you so much for continuing to support me and my shop – if you can’t afford to buy anything right now then a pin, tweet, re-gram or FB share of these new items would make me smile just as much!
I hope you are having a great week. It’s half term here so I’m trying to keep my little monkeys occupied during the day. They know how to keep me busy!
