One Goal Down...Many To Go

At the beginning of the year, I set several goals for myself and my business. Things are going really well and I'm on track with almost all my goals. In fact, I've already completed one of those goals! I had set a mid-term goal (meaning I would complete it here and there through the year) to list 5 new wedding invitation designs. We're only half way through March and I've already listed 5 new designs!

One of my new favorite designs is this Flower Invitation. I love the big graphic flower and mix of fonts on this one. And I am in talks with a bride to make these and some matching reply cards...woohoo!

This Grapevine Design came about from a custom request. The couple decided to go with another design, but I loved how this one turned out, so I decided to list it for others to see. How cool would it be to have a wedding in a vineyard...so pretty!

My wedding invitations continue to do well and I can't tell you how happy this makes me! I have two orders in the works as I write this and I've sent out several samples already this year! My next goal to conquer will be RSVP cards. I want to start with my most popular designs and add from there. I have a bridal show at the end of April, so I plan to have several ready by then.

 How are your 2013 goals coming along?

These are amazing! They are so unique! Would you perhaps be interested in designing birth announcement style keepsakes? We have a room with a lot of natural wood and a stone fireplace, and I'd love to have something to display like this for our girls.

Beautiful!!

Congrats, Edi! You're on a roll. I love the flower and grapevine designs. Have you thought about save the date cards? I love magnet save the date cards, and you could easily do that with your wooden designs.

It's always encouraging to me to see someone who actually sets goals and meets them. You are very inspiring and a wonderful example of what one can accomplish when they set goals and continually work towards them.

These are awesome invitations! goals are getting done! So awesome! I need to review mine, but I have been sew busy! Maybe I will have time, sometime! :)

Ms. Moo said...

I love your invitations! Invited guests are sure to remember the couple and the date with these very unique and special invitations. Kuddos on meeting your goal earlier than anticipated. I know you will keep busy with making a lot of inviations for many couples.

My first goal for this year was to create visual interest to my products, which I can only hope will lure more folks in at shows instead of just smelling the fragrance.
