For the past couple of days, I have been going through all of my supplies, trying to get everything organized, once again. I realized that I have more than enough cardstock, pattern paper, ribbon, blank cards and enevolopes. I still have a few more drawers to go through. Some of them, I cannot open because it is so full of stuff.
However I have been going through my cards, figuring out of why some of them aren’t selling. I realized the right question is why am I not using them? Maybe some of them are too girly for your nephew and vice versa?
I have taken a good look at them and realized that some of them are over 5 years old and my skills as a card maker have improved greatly. So I threw out a bunch of cards, (I saved the envelopes). Already I have a huge garbage bag full of cards in the middle of my room and I have two more containers to go through tomorrow. The ones that I have gone through like birthday and Christmas, I have tons of room in my containers which is good.
The bad part of all of this purging, I have not worked on my orders. I need to get back on them asap.
But that may be a problem, because next Saturday, Operation Write Home is hosting a Blog Hop. Already I have the song, “At the Hop” by Danny and the Juniors in my head.
I do believe that this will help my business. However this blog is still under construction. I finally figured out of how to get the word links working, but not the picture one.
And I need to figure out of how to get a gallery up there. Actually I am thinking of two galleries. One of the things that I am selling and the second one of what I have done, like a portfolio.
And my computer guy is still unavailable. How come I have a feeling that a few taps on a keyboard, he will set it up in less than a minute? You got to love Murphy’s Law.
Anyway, back to the blog. I am toying with the idea of having a prize. Something small and easy to mail, like a set of stamps. I have to see of what is there at the store.
