I love being a Stampin' Up demonstrator, but if I'm truly honest with myself---I'm my own best customer. So I've set some goals for myself to try and grow my business and to do a better job creating on my own:
Goal 1 - Set up a Facebook Stampin' Up page--done (no followers yet)
Goal 2 - Figure out how to take better pictures - working on it--have a photo box ordered and on the way
Goal 3 - Participate in some sketch/design challenges
Goal 4 - Blog on a more regular basis
During the course of this next year--I'm going to try and post at LEAST once a week a card or project that I've designed all by my little lonesome. I don't think I can give up CASEing cold turkey.
So let the Project begin….
Step 1--Find some Sketch sites and try to create some cards using their sketches.
Step 2--Figure out the techy stuff so I can post to their sites…without out totally messing up everything!
Step 3 -- Set up some classes to try and increase my business. I have ideas...but can I follow through with them?
Okay--enough about that--here's a card that I made recently for a swap that I participated in through VC Rocks:
I used paper from the All Abloom pack, For the Birds (colored with a blender pen), and the sentiment from Love and Sympathy. Can you see my dots from the embossing folder? I did that by putting the paper in the folder and pound it with a hammer wherever I wanted the dots to be! Not sure why I didn't take a picture of the inside!! I had it all fancied up too! Now I'm off to complete some of my goals before I turn old and gray--oh wait, I'm already there! Ha!
