I have mentioned my new Etsy Shop multiple times already but I want to go into a bit more detail.
Before I had Xander, I had thought about doing my own decor with the wood block stackers. I’ve always liked them but never had the time to sit down and do them. After getting a little “Swagged Out” on Swagbucks, I wanted to find another way to earn income, especially since photography isn’t doing so well for me down here. Everyone and their mother is a photographer and I really just don’t have time to fight with the competition. In response, out came my crafting skill (or lack thereof). I had the hubs go and buy me wood and cut it up for, I got the supplies I needed and started sanding and painting away. I really enjoy doing them…call me nuts, but I think it is sort of fun to do. I opened my shop up in Etsy after having about 8 block sets ready to go. Then, I thought about Football, and how its a big hit this time of year. I started doing a few football blocks, and that was the start of my business taking off. I have sold 16 thus far, 12 of which were for 1 person. I am now working on getting out a block set for a Giveaway that someone will be doing for me, in hopes to drag in a bit more awareness and a bit more business for myself. I have put out a flyer of some of my products, a business card and samples in my sons preschool. Hopefully it will one day interest someone. They make great gifts and I do custom orders. Here are some of my favorites that I’ve done and that are currently available for purchase in my shop!
