Working on Etsy Orders: A Day in the Life

Welcome back to my YouTube channel or welcome if you're new! Today, I want to take you along with me as I work on some of the Etsy orders. It's going to be a fun-filled video as I have a variety of different items to make. We'll be creating an acrylic cake topper, a "Hello My Name Is" baby name sign (which is the newest addition to my shop!), bridal hanger tags, and baby milestones.

Setting up the Workspace

Before we dive into the orders, let me give you a quick tour of my workspace. As you can see, it's currently a bit chaotic. I recently ordered a table from IKEA for my YouTube filming space, but unfortunately, they forgot to include one of the wheels. So, while waiting for the missing wheel to arrive, I have everything rearranged. My desk is pulled out, and I've moved the cubby area to the side. Once the table is set up, it will be a dedicated space for both live videos and as a backdrop for my creations.

Working on Etsy Orders

Now that we have the workspace sorted, it's time to get started on the orders. First, we'll focus on the painting part. I have all the items lined up, ready to be painted. Once the painting is done, we'll move on to the computer work, which involves designing and cutting vinyl for the acrylic pieces. This step is crucial, as it adds the personalized touch to each item. After the vinyl is applied, we'll move on to packaging, ensuring that every item is carefully wrapped and prepared for shipping.

Newest Obsession: Stanley 40 Ounce Tumbler

Before we get deep into our work, I wanted to share my current obsession with you. It's this amazing cup called the Stanley 40 Ounce Tumbler. Trust me when I say it's worth the hype! This cup, especially the one with a handle, has become an essential part of my daily routine. I chose it in the color "driftwood," and not only does it keep me hydrated, but it also brings out the crisp and refreshing taste of the water. If you're interested, I'll leave a link below to check it out. Just a heads up, it's often sold out, but they do restock it regularly.

Taking a Break from the Shop

Now, I want to let you in on a little secret. I'll be taking a short break from my Etsy shop. I officially closed it down two days ago to give myself a breather. My daughter's birthday is coming up, and my husband and I are planning a week off work. We're still undecided on where we'll go, but I'm excited to have this time to relax and recharge. So, for the next two weeks, I won't be accepting any new orders. But don't worry, I'll be back soon, ready to fulfill all your creative needs.

Taking Product Photos

Since I have a break from taking new orders, I decided it's the perfect time to take some product photos. Capturing the essence of each item is crucial for showcasing them on my Etsy shop. With my trusty camera by my side, I carefully arrange and photograph each creation from various angles. These photos will help potential customers visualize the products and make informed decisions.

Finishing Up the Orders

After capturing the product photos, it's time to wrap up the remaining orders. I double-check each item to ensure everything is in perfect condition. This attention to detail is crucial to provide the best customer experience. With all the products packaged and ready, it's satisfying to see the finished results.

Heading to the Post Office

Now that the orders are complete, it's time to head to the post office. Ensuring timely shipping is essential for customer satisfaction. Armed with all the carefully packaged items, I make my way to the post office, ready to send them off to their new homes.

In conclusion, working on my Etsy orders is a labor of love. From creating personalized acrylic pieces to carefully packaging each item, every step is crucial to delivering high-quality products. My workspace might be in a state of transition, but it's all part of the journey towards improving my YouTube filming space. And don't worry, even though I'm taking a short break, I'll be back soon, ready to continue creating and sharing my passion with you all!
