Spread the Word!

My shop is up and running and I've received some great feedback. I plan on doing another shop update next Tuesday, April 19th, so be sure to keep checking back. If you haven't already entered my giveaway for a $20 shop credit, what are you waiting for? I thought I'd add another chance to win the giveaway. So, if you spread the word about my blog or Etsy shop via Twitter, Facebook, or your blog, come back to the giveaway post and leave another comment with a link to where you mentioned Wish You Were Then. I really appreciate all of the comments and emails! Make sure to check out the other Indie Businesses that are hosting giveaways:

Shop Launch Day & Giveaway!

Launch day is here! The dresses are photographed and measured and I’m so excited to get these items in my shop. The first batch of dresses are some of my absolute favorites. They’re so hard to part with but I know they’ll be well loved.

One of my fellow Indie Biz classmates has organized all of the Launch Day details on their blog, 11th Monkey. Make sure to stop by to check out all of the participating blogs and shops. In addition to launching my Etsy tomorrow, I'm also offering a coupon code for 20% off! The code is INDIEBIZ.

I want to kick off my blog launch with a giveaway to thank everyone for stopping by. So, if you'd like to follow my blog and leave a comment letting me know your favorite item from my shop, you'll be entered to win a $20 shop credit! I'll pick a winner next Monday, April 18th.

Behind the Scenes

I'm just finishing up the Indie Business 3.0 course and I'm super motivated to get my blog started and my Etsy shop filled. The e-course couldn't have been more informative and I highly recommend it to any new creative businesses. I'll be participating in an Indie Biz Launch Day event on Monday, April 11th. Check back for a giveaway promotion and a coupon code to use in my Etsy shop. In the meantime I have some more work to do to get ready! Here's a little behind the scenes shot of a photo shoot session I did for some of my vintage dresses. You'll definitely want to check the shop on Monday to see these awesome dresses (and playsuits too!).
