Etsy Changes – Upcoming Shop Changes

I’m sure, by now, everyone has heard about the new changes to Etsy that are coming in the middle of July. While it seems as though a lot of the Etsy Sellers are making the move to their own websites, I wanted to stop by the blog and let you  know my plans for Planner & Paper.

I had already started making plans to slim down my presence on Etsy and start focusing more on the website, prior to this Etsy change, as I want to offer subscriptions to the Monthly Collections; which is something Etsy doesn’t allow. This means, more blog posts, all new releases will be listed here, digital products and subscriptions.

who knew opening a shop would be so much work?

I feel like I’m spending RIDICULOUS amounts of hours at my desk on my laptop and not getting anywhere. I’m sure it feels like I’m posting teaser posts on Instagram and it seems like I have so much done, but yet I’m not sharing anything with anyone. I PROMISE, I’m working as hard as one could work to get everything accomplished in order to open the shop. I am that “A typical” person who wants everything to be perfect and until it’s perfect it’s not happening. But, I’m close. Like REAL close to having everything ready and opening the shop. I just want everything to be, well perfect.
