One of the great things about the Etsy experience is the handmade touch. Everything handmade is made with a bit of love--and that makes your buying experience extra special. I keep this in mind when I pack up my jewelry to send it off to my customers. Before I seal their package shut, I personally thank each one of them. Each purchase means so much to me, and I want my buyers to know that.
I am so excited to extend the handmade experience by now using handmade thank you cards with my orders. I'm using these beautiful Asian-inspired mini cards by Jennifer of http://lillypea.etsy.com. She lovingly handstamped these images on premium papers. I have always loved paper and these feel so wonderful to write on--making the thank you process a real pleasure to complete each mailer. I also love them because the orange and brown combination is a perfect match with the colors in my business cards.
You can find the "Tracy" mini cards, blank greeting cards, and adorable sets to use for any occasion at http://lillypea.etsy.com.

Tonight I was setting up for the Etsy Austin meeting when I received a link to a customer photo. My beautiful customer Karly of www.shesewslovely.ca is modeling her new pair of Yarnballs earrings purchased from my etsy shop. Karley is a 25 year old Canadian who is an avid crafter, knitter, scrapbooker, and quilter. She sews the cutest handmade nursery wall hangings, felt owl brooches, felt baby books, and coffee sleeves.
