One Night In Paris (Not Hilton)! - My Treasury

I waited for 2 hours to get this treasury so I hope everyone likes it as much as I do! It is inspired by the romantic city of Paris - BON JOUR!

Thinking Outside the Box (of cards)...

I have realized - I'm among the mill of card shops on Etsy, ho-hum. I am trying to set myself apart from the "cutesy" crowd because that simply isn't my shop or vision, but will customers buy bold prints, simple design, clean lines...some of them might think they can make it themselves.

I have decided to have a go at a new line I will be opening up on my shop very soon that will feature some controversial cards (oh get over's just a card!) for break ups, divorces, one night stands, etc. A lot of them will be fun ones that you can send to your co-workers or friends....I think there is a market out there for this type of thing but is the young crowd really on Etsy purchasing? We'll see - trial run it is.

Any help on naming the line would be greatly appreciated!

Featured Etsy Seller of the Week - AnnaLeahDesigns

SoHo Couture's Pick for Featured Etsy Seller of the Week:

AnnaLeahDesigns - Wearable "Original Art" Pendants

I recently purchased a necklace from this shop and it arrived today! It is even more beautiful in person than it is on the site and I strongly reccommend her work to anyone looking for that perfect gift...or just something to spoil themselves.

What I love about this seller:
AnnaLeahDesigns is supporting the spirit of Etsy and using original art to create her pendants that she has sold to over 2,000 customers in multiple countries. In addition to her creations, she offers custom pendants with your own artwork! Now you can wear your favorite artwork - and it doesn't get any better than that.

Business & Marketing:
Your pendant comes shipped in a beautiful drawstring bag (great for gift sending) and a personal handwritten message. I love this touch - it shows all buyers who much she cares!

Please feel free to support AnnaLeahDesigns by visiting her site at the link above.
