You know, I'm sure people think crafting is not hard work or tiring, but let me tell you-IT IS! In my case at least, I know that most things I do and create, I am meticulous. Then my eyes start to water or go googley and my hands start to shake after about ten hours of fiddling with things and then I'm done for the day. It's been that way for the past week and a half or so and yet I'm enjoying it so much!
So I haven't received my first order yet, but I have a feeling it is coming soon! I'm getting good vibes around me and fingers are crossed! I did decide though that since I'll be doing craft shows (that will be in another post), that I need to come up with more "cash and carry" items. Beings as I can't make a scrapbook right on the spot for someone, I have to make sure that I get some cash in my pocket for the day.
I started to make Mini Scrapbook Kits which sounds like I'm working against myself, but not really. They are small 6x6 books with some paper and embellishments to get someone started. They are really adorable! I also am going to start selling Merry Recipes-just what it sounds like. I've found thousands of really simple and scrumptious recipes that I'll be packaging and selling. They are on cardstock with a beautiful design on the back. They will be great as Wishing Well gifts for Brides or a First Time Dorming College Student. Next, are my handmade Greeting Cards. They are so sweet and have heartfelt sentiments inside every one. I make them for all occasions and pictures of everything will be posted shortly on my site.
Hopefully this will bring in some cash ASAP along with an order or two for a book. SO EXCITED!!!
