About Julie Siomacco
I'm Julie Siomacco, owner, founder and lead designer of Southern Charm Wreaths, LLC and owner, co-founder of Wreath Makers Live, LLC. Having served 10 years in the financial sector as a business executive, I stepped away to be a stay-at-home mom of three. #Familyfirst!
In 2009, I took my passion for wreath-making and transformed it from hobby to full-time crafty corporation. Since then, I've grown my handmade business to multiple six-figures. And one of the first things I learned when starting my business was the importance of product production deadlines in order to maximize sales.
Today I want to share my planner with you.
Stay on Track in 2021!
One of the most common questions I get asked is when to start making holiday or seasonal items to sell in an Etsy shop. It’s sooner than you think!
When selling handmade items, staying ahead of the buyer is crucial to increased sales. Think about it…
- Most buyers are researchers - they’re savvy and do research online before making a purchase
- Most buyers like options - having a full inventory ready helps with buyers decisions
- Most buyers are planners - they plan for holidays and occasions in advance
And if the large craft stores put their inventory out in advance, that’s a sign your Etsy shop should too!
To help you plan for a productive 2021,
I’ve created a Design Planner to help you stay on track.
- Design PPP - Production, Promotion, Pipeline.
Each month what to be making, what to be promoting, and what to have on your radar for upcoming designs or sales.
- A list of my most popular e-commerce sales to implement in your Etsy shop or handmade business
- A monthly calendar including national holidays
- Monthly Hot Topics of discussion for your social media accounts
- Notes area for writing top SEO words for the month (makes next year easier)
- A weekly checklist of suggested social media posts to keep your brand engaged
- 15 of my most engaging social media posts for each month (180 total)
- Expense Tracker broken out using the IRS Business Expense Categories with list of what can be included as a business expense for a handmade business
- Mileage tracker for easy reporting at the end of the year
- Daily planner to remind you of your top 3 tasks for the day, note your appointments, daily social media checklist, and even a place for your family reminders and meals
- Monthly Income tracker
- And more!
I know growing a handmade business can be overwhelming but for 2021, you’ll be much more equipped with this Design Planner.

There’s a lot to learn and this planner will help me stay on track. I plan on using it as my roadmap for the next year. To know that something so rich in content is so readily available to me, in the spirit of community over competition, is amazing! What other community of entrepreneurs shares so freely?
