Christmas in July

Of all the seasons and themes I get excited about, Christmas is one of the top. I love to illustrate and paint Christmas-y things. It’s true. Those of you who have been around a while (or, yikes, dug in to some of the archives!) know that there is a lot of Christmas on this site.

Now, fast forward to March of this year when I finally decided to open an Etsy shop. My first concern was that I had no idea what to make… Christmas was really far away! I summoned all my creative juices and prayed a lot and I did come up with some things to list that make me smile. I hope they make you smile too, at least to see them pass through your feed.

While I’ve been creating all that non-Christmas stuff, I’ve been holding a hope in the back of my mind… Christmas in July! Could I continue filling my shops with products and artwork while still preparing some Christmas for July?

I’ll have to admit it was hard. I had bigger plans than a large family and garden would allow, but I have managed to get a few things listed to kick off Christmas in July. I’ll be adding more throughout the month as I have time and I’ll be highlighting each item here beginning next week.

Don’t want to wait??? Visit my shops now to see what’s there!

Mamasbrush Designs has some crafty and practical Christmas items.

Mamasbrush Decor has Christmas home decor.

…with more in the works! Subscribe to find out when new items are listed!

The big announcement??? SALE, SALE, SALE!

Both shops are running a 50% off Christmas listings during the month of July! This is my biggest sale yet and is probably the steepest discount I’ll offer on Christmas this year! Don’t miss it!

In Response to Feedback: Customer Information Forms

Customer Information Sheet | mamasbrush

Keep track of customer information for your small business or homestead side hustle.  Selling Eggs or milk or jewelry, cleaning houses or any other service based business can use these forms.

It’s been a while since I mentioned it here, but I love feedback! I often tell people that I thrive on it… it really pushes me to keep going, keep creating, and keep sharing. A “like” or a “favorite” makes me smile… but when someone takes the time to leave a comment here on the blog or a written review over at my shop, that is truly encouraging!

I have been underestimating the power and encouragement of true feedback though… the kind that offers a critique or suggestion. I love that! Someone to rub elbows with (virtually, that is) and give me suggestions to make what I have even better! So when Amy left a review after purchasing my 12 Monthly Egg Counting Sheets and said she wished there would have been a spot to write down customers, I was thrilled with the idea!

I decided right then that I would do it! It just took me a month or so to figure out how I would do it and what it would look like. When the inspiration hit, though, things began to speed up and I’m thrilled with the end result! I hope you all are too!

I designed both vertical and horizontal layouts for the pages and added them to the listing for the 12 Monthly Egg Counting Sheets. Anyone purchasing the Monthly Egg Counting Sheets will get the customer information sheets automatically.

Then I proceeded to message a copy of the Customer Information sheets to everyone who has purchased the Monthly Egg Counting Sheets (if you purchased one and haven’t received yours, check your Etsy account for a message from me and reach out to me if you don’t see it!)

My last step (before blogging about it anyway) was to list the Customer Information Sheets separately in my shop. You’ll notice that, while there is super cute chicken artwork on the forms, they don’t say anything about chickens or eggs anywhere! That makes these forms perfect for any kind of business. Add a touch of chicken and old truck whimsy to your business’s customer list with these Customer Information forms.

Oh, and grab them for 33% off for the next week for reading about them on the blog! Use coupon code CUSTOMERS33 or click this link to get it automatically.
