Been awhile

It's been awhile since I've found time to blog. Lots have been happening for my little company. I was busy getting ready for 2 craft shows in Septmember. One was a free one of the Gallery's I'm in in Downtown Cleveland on September 11th for Sparx. I got a few orders from there so that was successful! Not to mention that the owner of the Gallery ordered a dozen kids Birthday cards :) I had a ton of Halloween stuff, and some of them got sold.

Then the next weekend I had a craft show at my daughters Gymnastics. That one was successful because I received some orders from there too! On top of that I've had some birthday invitations that I supply for her Gymnastics (they have birthday parties there and they asked if I would make all the invitations as part of the package). That has been a great on going order (as a matter of fact, just yesterday I was asked to do 20 more).

I would have to say my most successful night was when I took my box to my Golf League night! Those ladies know how to shop!! Not only did they nearly clear me out of stock, but I got a few custom orders for Halloween Boxes.

I have started filling some Christmas cards and Christmas box orders, if you can believe it! I'll have to take a picture of the boxes and post it, it's really neat and has become a favorite to all that see them! :) Allison (the owner of Molly's Gymnastics) has also decided to give me a permanent table in the front where she wants me to have already made scrap book pages, some invitations and favor boxes for showers, and she wants me to create a Matte Board that she can frame that is decorated with gymnastics embellishments so she can put her daughters pictures in it, frame it, and hang it on the wall in hopes that others will buy them. They are super great there, always trying to come up with ideas on how to make my business more successful! It's great to have the support of friends who believe in your craft!
