I'm going to start putting more effort into this business this summer. I'm going to try to make this work with a bigger community presence and by adding more things on my Etsy website. I have 4 more weeks to the end of the school year. I don't think I'm going to renew my contract. I have to start figuring a way to make this work so that I can quit my job and make a living salary. I might go back and do a few sub jobs to supplement my income, but I want to try to do this full time. It's scary and exciting at the same time because the work is so seasonal.
My plan is to start treating it like a real job and create a schedule of what needs to be done and start doing it on a consistent basis. I am going to have a goal of doing an order a day from Etsy. I'm also going to try to do more craft shows and I am going to try to get a spot at the Farmer's market. I'm debating whether or not to follow through with the Ladies on the loose show. I guess I will at least e-mail them and find out what's going on. Maybe I can try to put some of these cards on consignment at an antique store or something like that. I also plan to put a lot more effort into updating this website and my Etsy site. It's time consuming, but I know it needs to be done.
Here are some more of the cards that I made this week. Have a great week.
