Here it is, our handcrafted jewelry store! We officially launched Rooted (and by officially, I mean Facebook officially, just like when all relationships get serious) on Thursday night, and we got just under 100 likes to our Facebook page in the first 24 hours. It was exciting. We are really thankful for all our friends and family and their support.
Oh, right, the links! 🙂
Here’s our website for our store of handcrafted jewelry.
And here’s our Facebook page.
Orders have started pouring in even faster than we anticipated. It’s all very exciting! Phil is so good at bending the wires (after 8 years of orthodontic lab work bending retainers and appliances he is extremely accurate!), and I am loving working on all the web-related stuff and packaging.
So far, we are really digging Storenvy, where we are selling our necklaces. It’s kind of like Etsy, but not exclusively handmade/vintage stuff, and instead of charging fees, they are free. We like free! And I just like their whole atmosphere and their support, etc. I think they are going to grow. So, it’s a nice place for us to start.
So, that’s what’s been keeping us busy lately, on top of everything else we do. But who doesn’t love to be busy doing something they enjoy?
I haven’t been updating as much lately, but that’s because… Phil and I are working to start a business! We are really excited and we want to have the online store running this week. We will be selling handmade jewelry. I’ll provide a link when it’s launched!
We are really looking forward to having our own business, no matter the forecast on small businesses. Thankfully God can cause us to prosper. I’m excited to see where it goes!
In other news, the chlorine is clearing out of our water so hopefully in the next week or two we will be able to drink it after it gets tested!
And yesterday I had an awesome time at dollar tree. It’s amazing how much you can get for just over $28… 27 items to be exact! 🙂 I got us a couple of cute stockings for just a dollar, and now I just need to find a tiny one for Bear 🙂
As you can see, I put a bow on mine so you could tell she’s a gingerbread WOman. I also scored a $1 wreath and a $1 red flowered garland to wrap around it to make a new holiday wreath for the front door. Not too terribly shabby for $2.
