PHOTOS WANTED!



Starting this month I am going to doing a monthly customer photo feature. I love seeing how my customers display their With Envy Studios' products. I also think it would be nice for others to see what you can do with diy/printable items!

To go along with this I will be doing a monthly giveaway. For those customers who submit pictures, you will be entered into a drawing for a FREE* item from one of my 3 shops.

Here are the specifics:

+You can submit pictures of With Envy Studios' party printables or digital iron-ons at your event, or products you've created using my clipart/digital papers. You can also submit picture of displayed art prints you've purchased. 

+I will collect pictures received during that month and feature them at the end of the month (probably the last day of the month). If no pictures are submitted there will obviously not be a feature or giveaway that month.

+All pictures received in that month will be entered into a drawing to received 1 FREE item from With Envy Parties, With Envy Papers or With Envy Home & Apparel (this excludes customized party collections).

+If you have pictures which include your children, by submitting I will assume you are ok with me displaying the pictures on my blog and in the customer photo album on my shop FB Fan page.

+By submitting photos you agree that you took the pictures or you have permission from the photographer to use the photos in this manners.
 
Please send any photos to withenvystudios@gmail.com.
*you can send as many pictures of your item(s) as you want for that month. Pictures of the same item(s)/event submitted in different months are only eligible for ONE giveaway. 

I look forward to seeing your pictures!!

March Blog FREEBIE!!!

Yippie it's March and time for another FREEBIE!!

St. Patrick's Day is one of my favorite holidays for the simple fact that there is so much green around. It gives me an excuse to make random foods green and force my children to wear green, it's perfect!

I created this mini party set to help you celebrate the holiday. Perfect for a kids party or adult get together! 

ENJOY!!

**Note on the editable food labels: They are intended to be printed on home computers. You can enter any text you want but the file can not be save with text entered. Therefor it can't be uploaded to a 3rd party site for printing with text entered. You will need to enter text and then print right after.

Just a little update....

Hey guys! I haven't written a "real" blog post in a while so I want to update you on whats been going on around here.

I am happy to report, I am very busy and thats mainly the reason I haven't blogged. Back in late November there was a lot of family stuff going on and with the holidays everyone wants their order ASAP. I was stressed out and a bit depressed about things. I was also contimplating whether I should get a part time job to provide more financial cushion. But struggling with whether that was a real option since my husband's work hours can be unpredictable, and if we had to pay for day care that would take away any cushion I earned. But Decemeber really surprised me and I ended the year with my highest grossing month ever. I probably could have done cartwheels.

I was excited for the new year and really optimistic for what it could mean. But truthfully I was also worried. I have been basing my product focus and assumptions about what months will be busy or not on the last two years of my party shop stats. But those last two years the shop was a "side thing" and some months I didn't do anything with my shops because I was too busy with my day job.

I noticed since summer ended that the what people are buying from me has changed and with the clipart shop thats a whole new set of customers that I'm still trying to figure out. So I have been spending a lot of time refocusing my attention and my products but I was worried it wasn't going to work out.

But so far January and these first 6 days of February has exceeded my expectations. I seriously have been having a squeal-fest with each and every order. I'm just so happy with where things are going. I do still know that every month is a different story. I do a lot of seasonal items, and I know sales change once the holiday is over.  But I have put a lot of focus on non seasonal items as they have become more popular for me lately and up until my current Valentine surge, my non seasonal items where making up most of my orders which is awesome!

I am really working on staying positive and trying not get bogged down in what other shops are doing and just be happy with my successes and my path (easier said than down). But one of the great things about being busy is I don't have the time to worry about that stuff. 

I will try to be better about recapping each weeks new products and doing a "real" post way more often.
