Flauxers Update

I just realized that I haven't posted in a while, so I decided that I'd give you an update on what's going on with Flauxers. I am in the process of ordering boxes and shipping supplies, and have finally found boxes that will hold my wreaths. Once I get these boxes, expect to see more wreaths on my website and in my Etsy shop. I also have been looking at more 'miniature' flowers to make earrings/hair pieces from, and flowers that I want to use for a cornucopia and pumpkin basket that I recently purchased. So that being said, there are a lot of seasonal arrangements on the way - and will hopefully be out sometime in October.

I have had multiple people ask about baby headbands, and I have listened. Baby headbands are on there way, and they will also soon be seen on my website and in my Etsy shop. Be sure to keep an eye out for these.

I've also recently received multiple pointers on how to approach local businesses to see if they are interested in selling my products in their store. There are several places in State College that I'm going to be approaching once I get a flyer/brochure completed, outlining all of my items. I'll update everyone again once I have those ready (I'm not exactly sure how I want to lay them out yet, so it maybe a while), and then again if any local places are interested.

One last update, I've asked to be in a 'SAMPLE' box being listed by a fellow Etsy shop. As I get more information, including if I'll be featured, I'll let everyone know - so you can be sure to get your box!

I hope everyone is having a great week!

New Treasury Created

I've found that I really enjoy collecting & arranging treasuries, and have created my 2nd one. It's probably not going to be as popular as the first, since the first was all adorable owls. But, this one is all ROSES! Roses are beautiful and loved by all - right? :) I like to think so. So, please check out my treasury, click on the items/browse the featured individuals shops, and leave me comments.


Happy Thursday! :)

Beautiful photo giveaway

I absolutely love flowers and enjoy seeing new ideas and pictures of them. Because of this, I have entered myself into a giveaway to win a flower picture. You should check it out too! The contest is being held by a fellow Etsian who's extremely friendly and has great products!

Etsy Treasury

I created my very first Etsy treasury today! I've had the items favorited for over a week now, and kept missing the time by a few seconds. After receiving a tip in the Etsy Chat rooms today (to start watching the treasury about an hour early), I was successful! My focus was owls - http://www.etsy.com/treasury_list.php?room_id=80069. Please look and comment as you feel necessary! :)

Every month, I have a sale on my website, and beginning this month, I'm going to be extending it to my Etsy shop as well. For all of you that aren't familiar with my webpage, I call my sales 'Monthly Blooms' and often feature a specific flower. This month however, the sale is: 10% OFF ALL CUSTOM ORDERS. Here's a copy of this month's newsletter/flyer, feel free to visit my webpage, look around and let me know what you think.
