The State of the Store

Martha.net shop screenshot September 23 2020

I’m starting to get overwhelmed by just how many things I have left to get up in the store. But large projects are just a series of smaller projects lumped together, so I figured if I broke it out and started tracking my progress– it might cheer me up!

Craft Fair Table 2019

I’m planning on having the following high/mid-level categories when it’s all said and done. There will be some smaller sub-sections to help divide things out further (like the magnets), but this is just sketching out the big picture.

  • Magnets
    • Resin Magnets
    • Plaster Magnets
    • Wooden Magnets
  • Ornaments & Medallions
    • Resin
    • Plaster
    • Wood
  • Paint Your Own
    • Resin Casts
    • Plaster Casts
  • Custom Model Horses
    • Other Animals
  • Model Horse Props
  • Handmade Books
  • Odds and Ends
  • Digital Downloads

As you can tell by visiting the shop– most of these are still in the ‘I’ll get to it eventually’ stage. ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ

Finished Inventory September 23 2020

I have 137 things that need to get into the store and right now only 24 of them have been posted. And that 137 is only a count of the things that I brought to the craft fair last year– and nothing I’ve finished this year.

So. I’ve got a ways to go.

I’m going to put aside a large portion of the To-List pile for now and focus on a few specific things between now and the next update. The gift-giving season is right around the corner and I want to make sure all my Holiday/religious themed things are up in the store!

  • Ornaments/Medallions
    • Reindeer (3 finished)
    • Blue Jay (3 finished)
    • Cardinal (3 finished)
    • Shire & Shetland (1 finished)
  • Paint Your Own (various)
  • Wooden Cross Magnets (10 finished)

I already have a listing for the Fat Pony portrait slots, so at least I have that checked off the list.

On top of that, I’d also like to get the Wooden Butterflies finished (there are only two left), all of the recently finished artwork up, and the Fat Pegasus started (there are 6).

And the rest of the fence colors for the model horse props. And the other base shapes. And the micro mini scale bases. And, and, and…

But I’m going to start with my holiday list first, so onwards!
