Stationery: {Cards for my future shop}

I dream of having an online shop of a few things designed by me and stationery related objects. However, these days my “spare” time is limited and I need to make the best with what I can do now ;) Do you dream of having your own shop? Or do you have one already? I’m curious to know which service do you use and how much time does it take to run a small shop on Etsy or any other services out there.  Please take a look below at a few ideas for stationery greeting cards. I hope you are having a great weekend and as always I love your comments and ideas!

    Those are really cute and look like they would fit in very well with Etsy. From my (brief) experience on Etsy, I can say it takes a ton of self promotion to get noticed. there are thousands and thousands of shops on the site, so utilize key words and SEO tricks to get noticed. They also have lots of small online groups you can get involved with which can help and their customer service is great. Etsy is great b/c they really create a sense of community for their people. You just have to work hard to stand out. Just get your Etsy shop url out any way you can…on your blog, postcards, get a booth at a local craft fair, etc..
    Good luck…I think they are great!!

    I would probably love to have a home much like an etsy shop- with all the wonderful things im always daydreaming about making, that friends and family could come over and enjoy! but yes an online shop is a pretty sweet achivement- wish you the best :) :)
