There’s so much going on right now. I’ll be at Crafty Wonderland in Portland Mother’s day Weekend – that’s next weekend folks. So get your train, plane or fill up your gas tank and come on down! Here’s their banner for more info:
I’ve also just restocked our supply of mermaid tshirts. So now we should have your size. But they go fast so don’t wait too long! And new, just in time for Crafty Wonderland – bike shirts! These are alternative apparel shirts. They’re super soft and really comfy. They do run small.
Here’s the woman’s shirt
and here’s the men’s version
And that’s all for now. I’m off to get some last minute printing done.
Today was one busy day! First I started the day off by wishing my Dad a happy birthday. After that, it was right to work. I had burned a few screens a while back and the plan was to use them on the tea towels. So today was the day to get some of the printing done. Here’s just two of the designs:
and here’s the other design
I also wanted to design a couple new launder/care tag instruction cards. Something that was a bit more modern in style. I came up with two designs. Not sure if I like them yet. I plan on doing one or two more designs and going from there.
Here’s the first design:
and here’s the second:
First let me start by saying, Facebook is not my favorite but I find myself checking it often… And being a business owner and wanting to get my business name out there and get some fans on facebook and try and pick up some sales. I took me a bit of time but I finally figured out how to finally get my facebook page to not be so flipping long. If you have a facebook account, want don’t you hop on over to the Sunday Drive Designs Fan page and become a fan! The part I can’t seem to figure out is getting this blog to be seen on the Sunday Drive Designs fan page. I followed all their directions and I get some doofy error message saying, ” Import Failed. We couldn’t find a feed using the URL you provided.” What does that mean? If anyone out there can help me figure this out, I will be eternally grateful.
Aside from that, my Washington CASH business class is going really well. It’s been a huge help and I feel like I’m getting a much better understanding of the things that i need to do or hand off to someone else to do, to become a business that has staying power. This week’s homework has me figuring out the cost of goods and such. It’s something that I think I needed to really focus on and I just never did. Probably because I was afraid that I was really charging way too little for what I was doing. There were two other things that really stand out as something that I need to keep reminding myself:
- I am the CEO. I can make whatever decisions for my business that I feel are right for the business.
- My time is worth nothing. Meaning I should not be factoring in my time into the cost of goods. Sounds contrary to what all other books say, but for what I do, my time shouldn’t be factored into it.
I’m also working hard on some new products and designs. And here’s just a little taste.
I’ll also be at the 1st Annual Valentine’s Day Artisan Sale on Feb 12th from noon to 4 at Cascade People’s Center, South Lake Union, 309 Pontius Avenue North, Seattle, WA. You should be there too!
