Etsy Shop Critique – our newest kit!!!

One of the biggest things I wish I had when I started Zenned Out was a pair of expert eyes on my Etsy shop and someone telling me I was doing a good job. After figuring out all of the ins and outs on my own I went on to have a hugely successful Etsy shop.

I want to help you avoid all of the trial and error, and loads of your valuable time! To help you, I created an Etsy Shop Critique and asked Kerry to come in and add some self-care love to the process.

If you feel like there’s endless advice about running your Etsy shop but don’t know where to start, this is your kit! By focusing on some key topics we can help you narrow down what areas you need the most help with.

This critique will help you target the areas you’re already amazing at, areas that may need some love, and give you insight about what you need to focus on to take your shop to the next level.

You are not in this alone! We will be with you every step of the way asking you to check in with yourself and make sure you’re are taking care of yourself as much as you are trying to take care of your shop.

We’ve broken this critique down into 11 sections that all need some attention in order to have a well oiled Etsy shop. You can tackle them all at once, or skip around to sections you know you might need more help with, or slowly work through each topic.

Here are the sections we cover in the kit: 

  • Branding
  • Photography
  • Listings
  • Pricing
  • Getting Found
  • Stats & Analytics
  • Shipping & Packaging
  • Retaining Customers
  • Social Media
  • Self Care

Each section is a mix of yes or no questions, open-ended questions that require a bit more reflection, and a notes area to jot down ideas, inspirations, and todos. Plus, each section ends with a check-in so you can touch in with how you feel about each topic.

As with all of our kits, this kit also includes some beautiful affirmation cards for you to print out to help get you in the right frame of mind.

Holiday Gift Guide: Colorful Jewelry



Welcome to the start of this year’s gift guide! I decided to start with some colorful jewelry that I have either bought for myself, as gifts or received as gifts. I absolutely love all of them and the amazing artists who made them!

1.  Ditty Drops – Bright Green Cactus Desert Dune Triangle Stud Earring

– I bought a pair for a friend and then could not resist buying two pairs for myself later on. All of Meredith’s designs make me giddy with delight!

2.  An Astrid Endeavor – Pink Hand Embroidered Geometric Crescent Necklace

– I bought this necklace with teal colors for the same friend and she is absolutely obsessed with it! Plus, Astrid’s work is just so unique. Now her jewelry is on my wishlist!

3.  So Little Time Co. –  Wooden Laser Cut Neon Dipped Circle Earrings

– My mom bought these for me and now I want them in every color! Kirsty’s darling designs make me happy.

4.  Dream Spirit –  Turquoise Bow and Arrow Earrings

– I picked these up at the Portland Saturday Market this summer. I don’t believe I have ever had more people compliment my earrings as much as these ones! I even had a dad at Legoland come up and tell me how cool he thought they were!

5.  Huiyi Tan – Yellow Color Pencil Ear Studs

– My sister-in-law bought these for me in red and they are the best! Seeing them in my jewelry box and wearing them reminds me to take time to get creative.

I hope you like these picks! All of the shops have tons more to look at and I can vouch for their quality and amazingness!
