Welcome back to another video where I'll be sharing my macrame creations with you. Today, I have a bunch of exciting things to discuss, including restocking my shop, opening a new shop with a new name, and gathering feedback from you. I'll also be showcasing my current supplies and sharing some ideas for future products. So, let's dive right in!

Restocking and Opening a New Shop

I'm thrilled to announce that I'll be restocking my shop with a variety of macrame items. Additionally, I'll be opening a new shop with a fresh name, Handmade by Kate. This new name allows me to expand beyond macrame and offer a wider range of handmade products in the future. I can't wait to share all of these exciting updates with you!

Macrame Tutorials and Kits

Many of you have expressed interest in macrame tutorials, and I'm happy to announce that I'll be creating some soon. I've mastered the techniques and believe I can provide easy-to-follow tutorials for beginners. In line with this, I'm also considering creating macrame kits that include all the necessary materials for you to make your own macrame creations at home. These kits can be customized for different projects and will come with corresponding tutorial videos. Let me know your thoughts on this idea!

Supplies for Macrame

Let's take a look at the supplies I currently have for my macrame projects. I got most of these supplies from Amazon, and I've linked them in my Amazon storefront for your convenience. In my box of supplies, you'll find a hot glue gun, a random ruler, a brush, and various ropes of different thicknesses and colors. I'll be ordering more colors soon to expand my options and bring more variety to my shop.

Creating Keychains

One of my favorite macrame projects is making keychains. I have a collection of keychains in different colors and designs, featuring a mix of black, silver, gunmetal, and rose gold hardware. These keychains are a fun and stylish accessory that can be easily attached to your key ring or backpack. I've received positive feedback on these keychains, and I'm excited to continue creating more unique designs.

Making Mini Hangers

Another macrame creation I've been working on is mini hangers. These adorable hangers can be hung on a wall or used as a decoration. They are perfect for holding small plants, air plants, or even as a stylish keychain holder. I've experimented with different color combinations and knot patterns, and I'm pleased with the results. They make for a charming addition to any space.

Cash Envelopes for Budgeting

In addition to macrame, I also offer cash envelopes for budgeting purposes. These envelopes are a practical and visually appealing way to manage your finances. I recently received an order for the cotton candy marble set and the farmhouse set. Each envelope is carefully crafted and designed to be durable and functional. If you're interested in budgeting tools, feel free to check out my shop and explore the available options.

Packaging and Shipping Orders

When it comes to packaging and shipping orders, I take extra care to ensure that everything arrives in perfect condition. I package each item securely, and I'm currently working on designing logo stickers to add a personal touch to the packaging. It's important to me that my customers receive their orders promptly and in excellent condition.

Maintaining Stock for Etsy Shop

To ensure that I have products readily available for my customers, I keep a stock of already-made macrame items in my shop. This allows for quick processing and shipment of orders. By having a variety of products in stock, I can provide a seamless shopping experience for customers who prefer ready-to-ship items.

Future Plans and Tutorial Creation

Looking ahead, I'm excited to continue expanding my shop and creating new tutorials. I have several ideas in mind, including advanced macrame techniques, home decor projects, and even non-macrame products. The possibilities are endless, and I'm eager to share my creative journey with you. Stay tuned for more exciting updates and tutorials!
