Pretty Packages All In A Row...

Yesterday, I (finally) took pictures of my packaging. I even started to add them to my listings. :-)

When going through my packaging, I realized that I have several tags and ribbons that do not match with my shop and packaging... hmmm... what's a girl to do? I've decided that I am going to start adding a few extras to packages going to other shop owners and with packages of supplies. That should work right? It's a win-win situation. I pass on something that I'm not likely to use (and is cluttering my work area - which doesn't need any help, but that's another story) to someone who hopefully CAN use it. Yay!

Here is how the photo shoot came out:

Packaging For Success

With the holiday season rapidly approaching, I thought I'd address the subject of packaging... 

As many have said before me, people buy from Etsy shops for the personal touch of getting a special item directly from the maker. I recently read "Packaging That Packs A Punch Article: Call for Responses!" in the Etsy Success forum. They've set up a Flickr account with loads of examples of packaging to help your packaging to stand out in a crowd: etsypackaging. I thought I'd share a few of my favorites:
