 Well, I finally did it.

I opened an Etsy shop.

I really don't have time for an Etsy shop.

However, the gym I am going to costs $100 a month (yes I know it very expensive). And my Christmas money is running out quickly. I can't walk away from all of the hard work I have done there.

So, I opened an Etsy shop.

It took FOREVER to think of a name.

I finally came up with the name Emmerie.

My uncle used to call me Emmers, which I loved. (I wish more people called me that) But Emmers was already taken.

I took off the S and added IE to the end (Because I spell my name with an IE at the end) and Voila! Emmerie was born. (And yes, it does sound like the Chinese waiters from The Christmas Story are saying, "Emilie"...but it makes me giggle every time I think about that, so I think of it as a bonus.)

I am still working out the logo. It's ok, but I don't love it.

At the moment the only item listed is a custom order crocheted Baptism dress. My mom will be making these and then I will be making scripture cases, like the one I made Karaia. Really it will be one stop shopping.

I'm excited and stressed about the whole thing.

It will be fun....right?

Hey, you could sell vinyl from your vinyl-selling sista! :0)

I'm excited for you! With the logo, I think the E needs to stand out more...have it be a bold, block letter and the rest all curly or the other way around.

Very fun!

I love it! I love the logo and the name. Etsy is being dumb tonight so I can't see what the shop looks like, but I will check it out tomorrow.

That is awesome!! Congrats to you.

Your new pictures are so so cute. I feel like a pretty big jerk about that still.

I'm sure your shop will do well. Karaia's case is so darling.

Dave suggested since the E in the smaller logo is on the decoration, that the E in the main title be the same.

What make you stressed about it?
and you already have pictures of Karaia's case so you could put those on...
