How’d I come up with these sayings? For many of them, I used this ‘formula’: Catchy saying/Pun + Deal. The first half is a cute, creative, or catchy play on words to get the customers attention in their inbox. The second part is a deal/coupon/sale/new product announcement. After you’ve gotten their attention in their inbox, you give them a reason to open the email.
So, get out there and try it! Need more help getting your shop ready for the holidays? Read this article on how to get your business ready for the holidays.

Christine, I can't thank you enough for all your incredibly informative posts - they have helped me SO MUCH, and I appreciate your generosity in sharing your wisdom. I'm just now getting started with THINKING of blogging each week, posting to Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest, but I'm so far behind in technology (was in the two different professional fields that didn't allow me to learn the latest and greatest!), that it's been VERY difficult finding folks to guide me (I've been ripped off several times to the tune of hundreds and hundreds of dollars). I wish I had a knowledgeable friend who lived next door so we could "create" and share our wares together! In the meantime, tho, I'll be gathering as many helpful hints from you as you're willing to share!

I'm so glad Casey! I'm sorry you've had bad experiences in the past. I, too, wish for that friend! (Most of my friends aren't crafty at all!)
