The Enchanted Type Story: 2016 Highlights

And so 2016 comes to a close, and we welcome a fresh and shiny New Year. One of my favorite parts of the New Year is taking a moment to reflect on the previous year's accomplishments (here are my highlights from 2015). I find it so helpful when planning my next steps forward. So without further ado, here are the highlights of 2016 for Enchanted Type!

450 customers in 9 countries

Launched first physical products

Sold at my first craft show

Total of 12 craft shows this year

I am truly so excited for what the future holds for Enchanted Type in 2017, and a big part of that is because of all the amazing people I met or that supported me this year. Thank you to each and every one of you for an incredible 2016!

Party Kits Retiring, New Cards on the Horizon

Whew it's been a busy first craft show season! I'm finally taking a breather the month of August to prepare for the holiday season. There's lots of happy haunts and jingle bells ringing around here right now.

In the next few weeks I will be debuting my first fall collection of cards, with inspiration from the Disney Parks, your favorite fall-themed movies and beyond. Be on the lookout for sneak peeks on my Instagram account.

In the meantime, I have an important announcement to make with regards to future Enchanted Type collections. It is with much thought and deliberation that I have decided to retire all party kit collections.

A year ago I introduced my first party kit, with plans of creating more collections in the future. In the meantime, my heart has fallen for designing greeting cards and interacting with all you lovely people at local craft shows.

Saying goodbye to the kits will make way for new seasonal items and allow me to make even more magical cards. The kits are still available for now, but will be glowing away in the next month.

I can't wait to share all the cozy, fall goodness I've been scaring up the last few weeks. Until then!

TTFN,
Elaina

New cards for Mom, Dad & Grads

Last weekend was my first craft show at It's a Good Day Market in Murrieta, CA, and I had a blast! I debuted my new collection of cards for Mother's Day, Father's Day, New Grads and beyond. All of the new greeting cards are now available in the Etsy Shop.

Here's a peek at my booth, created with the wonderful support of my husband. The booth will be growing for my next craft show, Penelope Lane Boutique on April 30 in Long Beach, CA.

Click here to see my schedule of upcoming events. I hope to see you soon!
