HandcraftedByKari is in vacation mode. I've been super stressed fulfilling orders while working overtime everyday of the week. This has led to orders taking a while to go out which is not the way I want my shop to run. To prevent this and some bad habits that have formed due to time pressures, I'm going to be completely restructuring my shop. Etsy has a system where you can set the individual quantity of each variation which will hopefully keep me on track better. I've recently fallen into the habit of only printing an item when it is ordered. As a low volume shop that works well and prevents having large amounts of stock on hand. Things have changed and so I've been working to find a solution that would allow me to adapt. This is it. It takes time to make multiples of every item and every color and this
vacation staycation will be focused on that plus a little bit of R&D for some fun new products I have in mind!
