I've been working on a few goals, all are in progress, but I haven't 100% completed any of them yet.
- Have 100 items in my shop (I'm, on my way with 58 items and lots of new plans)
- Develop a Seasonal Winter Collection (this I'm proud to say is about 75% done)
- Market my Vineyard Collection for wholesale (hasn't happened)
- Develop marketing material for my Bridal Collection (I have some professional photos done)
- Make mini version of my Craft Fair Displays (DONE!)
I wanted to share with you the one I actually finished! Like most crafters I'm not a one trick pony. I've dabbled in all kinds of crafts but settled into jewelry for my Etsy shop - mostly because I love beautiful things. But I also developed woodworking skills when laboring on construction sites and have refined them to now offer jewelry displays.
After seeing a display at the Portland Saturday Market, long before I opened my Etsy shop, I knew I wanted to also make and sell jewelry. This summer I did my first craft fair and built my display based on what I remembered. My tutorial of this display has become my #3 most viewed blog post.
People LOVE my display! And I also saw this as a fantastic branding opportunity for Miss Meghan Elizabeth. The simplicity and white paint fit in very well with my brand. I scaled the entire thing down to a 12" x 12" display.
These displays are handcrafted by me and are made of poplar and select pine. I did get a little set up help with the chop saw and drill press (sound dangerous, huh?) from Dad and Hubby. I hope you don't mind this little shameless promotion post - but I'm pretty proud of these.

Thanks for stopping by! The wood ones I also hope to offer as a part of my wholesale package for the vineyard collection. Vineyard wine shops always sell odd and end wine items and I have two that I'd love to get my jewelry featured in! Maybe I'll make that goal due date the end of this month. Wish me luck!
