I love to color.

I’ve recently discovered my love for Traveler’s Notebooks.

Combine the two and, “Poof!”  Yellow Paper House adult coloring books.

Yellow Paper House is an Etsy shop that specializes in various inserts for the Traveler’s Notebook system.  Visit the shop here for the full selection of items they offer.

Purchasing these coloring books were the first purchase I have ever made with this shop and I’m in love.

They offer three volumes of coloring books, but I decided to only get two because I wasn’t really into the third volume.  However, after getting through the first volume and working on the second, I’m definitely feeling the urge to purchase the third.

The paper quality is AMAZING!  I am currently using the Crayola Fine Line Markers to color in the book and there is NO bleed through or shadowing.  It’s amazing!  I’ll be posting photos of my colored pages in a future blog post about adult coloring.

For now, here are two examples of coloring pages that these books have to offer.

This is from the Volume One coloring book.  Simple patterns.  Fun images.  I love it!

I’m super excited to finally get into this book.  The patterns look so fun.  I could see myself getting lost in the pages and enjoying the coloring process.

They’re up!

The Mother’s Day greeting cards are up in the Etsy shop, CutieQ Cards n Crafts!

There are three card designs.  I made four of each card design.  That means each of these cards are in very limited quanities, so if you would like to purchase one, act now!  Once these are all sold, then they are gone!

I’m also asking that if you want to make a purchase, please consider purchasing ON OR BEFORE APRIL 30TH.  This helps me make sure that they get shipped out in time for Mother’s Day.

I will also be sending limited quantities of all of these cards to the flower shop, All That Blooms, in Chino Hills, CA.  I sell my cards there.  If you find yourself in that area, please stop by and look at the cards I have for sale.

Are you ready for Mother’s Day?  Make sure you have the perfect card!

I love Harry Potter.  I love coffee.  I love mugs.

When I saw this, I HAD to have it.

I loved it so much, I bought more than one and shipped it out to my brother, another Harry Potter fan!

The Pink Polk Dot Custom Creations is an only store found on Etsy.  Click here to go directly to the shop.  This shop has so many different designs on mugs and reusable coffee cups.  This shop even has glitter dipped items!

Glitter!

There is an endless selection of items in this shop.

The mug arrived packaged so secure.  It came in very good condition.  As you see in the photo below, the shop owner adds a bit of flair and fun in her packaging.  I totally loved the little purple tinsel.  It was such a cute way to make her packaging stand out from other shops.

Customer service is also excellent.  The shop owner responds so quickly and is so accommodating and friendly.  That personal and friendly service is why I love shopping small.

I’ve already used mine several times, and I still get a kick out of it!  I absolutely love it!

To clean the mug, the shop specifies that it should not be soaked and should not be placed in the dishwasher.  These mugs are to only be handwashed.

Seriously, isn’t it the greatest?!

My shop has found much success with one item.

A banner.

BoyBanner_2

It was initially a custom order I had completed several months prior.  I was looking for more items on a “made to order” status, when I started searching through my old product phots.  I came up on this banner and thought it was a good idea to add it to my listings.

It was the best decision I had ever made.

Since January, I have gotten at least one order of this banner.  In one month, I had received three orders for this banner.

I’ve been more than happy to make this banner.  It’s created with the utmost care and love.  I use a special lined burlap.  Fraying isn’t an issue.

I really need to get my act together and create a girl banner.  I just wish I had at least one more hour in the day.  One day, there will be a girl banner similar to this one.

Ordering a custom girl banner just might give me enough of a push to really create one.  I’m always open to custom orders!

For the many years that my Etsy store had been open, I struggled with how to manage inventory.

I think I’ve finally figured out my own system.

Fours.

I will be working on becoming a “ready to sell” card shop.  It’s much easier than making greeting cards on demand.  No one wants to wait for a card.  They want to order the card with minimal processing and wait time.

So, fours.

I will be making four copies of every card I make and then I will make it available in the store for purchase.  There will only be four copies of the card for sale.

Once all four cards sell, then it’s gone.

If a design is popular enough, I will create it again and restock the store.

It’s a great way for me to see what sells and what doesn’t.

Seems like a good idea, right?

If you’ve followed this blog for awhile, you should know that I have an Etsy shop.  This blog entry will most likely be one big shameless plug for my shop, but hey, I gotta do it sometimes!

CutieQ Cards n Crafts

I’ve had it for years, but when we made the decision for me to quit my job to be a full-time stay-at-home mom, I wanted to put more effort into this shop and make it something worthwhile.

I decided that the shop won’t just be about cards.

The name says ‘cards n crafts’ so I wanted to also focus on some other crafts that I could sell.

I’ve always made banners for parties and occasions.  So I took one banner I had already completed, took a photo of it, and posted it in the shop.  That banner in the shop happens to be my best selling item.  I get at least one order for this banner a month, which actually fulfills my ‘one sale a month’ goal.  To view the best-selling banner, click here and it will send you directly to my Etsy shop.

I also started selling ribbon clips in my Etsy shop.  I’ve always been a fan of clean and simple designs, so these ribbon clips are the perfect reflection of my style.  Click here to see the various ribbon clip sets I have for sale.

Cards are still an important element in my shop, and I try to keep up to date with holidays, but it is pretty difficult.  I was barely able to get some Valentine’s Day cards into the shop.  Luckily, I put out a few and sold a few.

In the processing of moving back into the house and clearing/cleaning up my crafting work space, I found a bunch of cards.  I’m currently in the process of taking pictures of them and creating shop listings for those cards.  They will be one of a kind.  Once they sell, they probably won’t come back due to the new system of card making and selling I am implementing.

But I’ll save that for a blog post next week….

In the meantime, please feel free to visit my little Etsy shop, the link is above.

I do take custom orders, so if there is a banner or card you would like me to make, you can always begin a conversation with me on Etsy and I can help you with what you would like!

Ok, shameless blog post about the Etsy shop is over.. thanks for sticking around!
