Hello! I hope everyone had a wonderful time over the holidays! I know that the current times have been challenging for all of us, and I know for me, it’s easiest to take life day by day.
Now that all of my customers have received and given their gifts, I want to share some pictures of a few custom orders that I was working on before leaving town with my husband for Christmas.
I have already begun working on my 2021 jewelry line, and I will be sharing the photos with you tomorrow, Thursday, January 14th or Friday, January 15th. I am planning on creating new pieces each week, take pictures, listing them on my website, blogging an announcement that they are ready for purchase, and posting about them on social media each Thursday in the late afternoon or evening. We will see how that works out for me and if I need to make any changes, I will let you know.
I am adding a few new categories to my online shops, such as jewelry for men and kids. I will also be adding some of my original photography images and stock from my destash boutique, so look for a blog post announcing new listings in those categories, most likely around springtime.
Take care and watch for the announcement of the new listings later in the day, tomorrow or Friday!
In the last few months, I have been recovering from surgery, working on a new product line for my shop, and busy with custom orders. My shop will be closed from December 18th until January 5th. If you want to purchase something from my shop, you can either go ahead and make your purchase now, understanding that your order will not be shipped out until January 5th or 6th, or you can wait until I return. If you would like to place a custom order, please email me while I am out at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will contact you when I return.
Over the last few weeks, I have been working on new jewelry designs. I have completely reorganized my studio and stocked up on a few new supplies so that when I return after the holidays, I will be ready to start rolling out my new jewelry for 2021! I will also be continuing to work on the new product line, which I expect to have ready for sale by early Spring, and on listing items in the Destash Boutique category in my shop.
I will be posting pictures of a few of the custom orders I have completed once my customers have received their orders and have gifted them to their loved ones….I don’t want to spoil the surprise! 😁
Please stay tuned for updates on everything going on in the coming months with mmillsdesigns!
Welcome! I will update my progress on new items as well as new listings in my shop in my blog, so watch for updates in the coming weeks and months.
My website is finally fully functional and my shop is open! I only have the handmade jewelry section of my shop open at this time. I will be working on the other two sections in the coming weeks, my Destash Boutique and my Original Photography.
For those of you who not familiar with the term Destash, it is referring to the sale of crafting supplies. I have quite a few extra beads and supplies that I will be selling at a reasonable price in the coming months. I will have some individual items as well as a few bulk purchases available.
I will be working on new items for the jewelry section of my shop in the coming weeks and again, I will post updates in my blog.
If you have any questions for me please contact me through my Contact Me page.
I have decided to close my Etsy shop. Etsy has become greedy over the years and their site is no longer all about quality handmade items. They are now allowing sellers to come on to the site and sell cheap items that are made in China. Some sellers are taking the extra step to remove the “made in China” tag before sending the item out to unsuspecting customers but very often, that is not the case.
There are also issues with their analytics as far as shop items being visible on their main page. I am in a highly competative area on selling sites and I am not visible without constantly renewing my listings at $.20 each. I do not have that kind of money, so my sales on their site do not justify the cost of keeping my shop open.
So, now you can shop from my website and support my business directly!
Thank you for being here! I will get my “Shop” tab set up as soon as I can, so look for a new blog post announcing my Grand Opening Sale!
