My first sales!

After a bit over a week and 4 sales later, I am loving this!  As I expected, custom items are going to be the main seller in my shop, especially until I get some more collections established.  THE POLKADOT COLLECTION is giving people ideas of what is possible...but the possibilities are really endless.  

My first Etsy customer had already purchased a banner with a vintage feel and asked if I could modify the party hats and crown to fit with her theme and colors.  My answer: ABSOLUTELY!  After her and I discussed a few options, she picked her favorite paper and I bought that and some other coordinating papers in the colors she wanted and got to work.  This is how they turned out:


After seeing the pictures I sent her of the initial hats and crown, she loved them so much she ordered 5 more hats, 13 cupcake toppers, a sign, and confetti to match!  
Remember that if you can dream it, I'll try to do it!

Congratulations! How cool is it to have your first couple sales & especially for it to have turned into multiple orders! I just read your husband's blog and it's incredibly sweet how proud he is of you...it's funny, my husband and I do the same thing...he'll say, "I'll watch Avery tonight so you can work on orders." Good luck!
