GAM '09 - January Edition

GAM '09

While I am not one for an entire New Years resolution, I thought that this challenge would be a good one as it is a month by month situation. Vermillion Rules! set out the challenge to post a goal for the month of January. But as she mentioned establishing that goal is time consuming!

So for the first month of this new year, I think I'm setting my goal to be to get my Etsy shop up and running. That involves primarily creating inventory!! I've created an Etsy shop back in November - Ace Quilting - got it all ready to go with the full intentions of having inventory for Christmas - well that did NOT happen.

I have made significant steps in the last few days for some of my products: lavender eye pillows and sachets for your drawers and closets. I've procured the lavender, flax seeds, and fabric... now I just need to get sewing. I find this to be a worthy (and hopefully) profitable by at least a $1 goal for January!

Before: An empty shop!

After: Links and listings hopefully to accompany my February edition!

Good luck with your Etsy store! I am setting up an online store, too, although not an Etsy shop.

That's wonderful to hear! WTG on the Etsy shop! One way to get your products out and known is to have a few contest/giveaways here and there. Just an idea. :) email me if u'd like.
