What Can Storque Do For You?

Very Unexpectedly I was featured in the Etsy Finds Storque Article  and it was about a third of the way down so not even front and center. storqueThese are the towels and the photo that was in the article (one of my favorites – and a new product that I just started making) heartstowel So here is how it impacted my shop. Below is a screen shot of Craftopolis. The first day I got over 4000 page views – up from 300-500 a day. The next three days I noticed an increase as well. Not to mention the incredible amount of new shop hearts!!!craftopolisThis is Google Analytics – COOL! 975 Visits the first day.  GA So far this is the stats on the actual listing : 209 hearts!! I don’t think I have ever had over 15 on a single item before.heartsAs for sales – I am shipping to Brazil, Puerto Rico and Italy this week. My total items that I have sold in the last week is approaching 60!!!

I don’t count on Etsy to bring traffic to my shop but when they do – it is AMAZING.

New Products

Well, I have been a super duper busy beaver lately and besides all of the hooded towels and beach towels here are a few more things that I have been working on. I LOVE the new Michael Miller fabric - So boyish with the trucks and all. A recent shopping trip to JoAnn's got me the lemon fabric which I instantly fell in love with - so bright and summery!! My newest towel "thing" is the huge name applique - I started them just for my kids and then the swim teacher wanted some and then her neighbor etc. etc. so I decided to list them in my shop. I enjoy making them because I like to sew so it is a nice change from the embroidery (plus I can do it at the same time as the embroidery machine is going!) Well - enjoy these summer days!!

Eco Friendly Reusable Baby Wipes with Wetbag from Cloud Love Baby

Are not these super cute!!! Here is what she has to say...

5 gorgeously soft bamboo velour baby wipes, backed with gorgeous Amy Butler designer fabric, perfectly housed in a super cute, wallet sized wet bag. Simple and stylish for adventures out and about, perfect for wiping little faces, little hands and little bottoms.

A great alternative to disposable baby wipes, laden with undesirable ingredients.

These wipes, with their own wet bag, evolved after many a frustrating morning trying to get out the door in a hurry. It usually went something like this - grab some nappies, load up the car, then run back for some wipes and then check the change table, nappy bag or line for a clean and dry wet bag to put them in that didn’t take up the entire nappy bag. This waterproof wallet with 5 coordinating wipes is the perfect compact and stylish solution.
