My preparations for the holiday shopping season: Week 1

I can hardly believe it but I have already begun holiday preparations for the upcoming season! Over the next four weeks I'm hoping to have my wheels in motion and be prepared for a stress free and hopefully busy season. Week One: Order supplies...alot of supplies! I just finished a big charm order, am getting stocked up on chain and findings and other creating goodies as well as bags for packaging. This week I also hope to order another case of envelopes and get some new colours of cardstock for making product cards. With everything on its way I guess I'd better make Week Two organize my studio/office space! Stay tuned to see how that works out!

How are you getting your handmade business ready for the holiday season? What do you expect this year to bring?

  1. You're right, this is the perfect time to think of the holidays! Thanks for the reminder. I have a show booked and pre orders for Christmas Cards, so yes, supplies would be a good start!

    I'm hoping to get ultra organized this year and really grow the business. Thanks for all your practical and useful tips. Much appreciated! :)
