I'm back to report on what I did last weekend, which was to increase my stock of cards in my shop. I have had the Japanese washi paper for quite awhile now and have made several bookmarks with it, but had never done any cards until I did this one for my BFF Kendra's birthday card. I love washi paper- it is so detailed and intricate, with such vivid colors! I decided to make some cards with the stock that I have, since the washi bookmarks are not real big sellers. Turns out I had way more washi paper than I remembered buying! I had 8 different designs, so I made a set of two with each.
Speaking of which, my Valentine cards that I posted previously are getting plenty of views, and have been featured in several treasuries as well- but still no sales. I would sure like to sell at least one, just so I know that my stuff is worthy!
This was the other project I took on over the weekend, a never ending birthday card for one of my daughters friends, who is having a birthday party coming up this weekend. She's into all the cute tween fashions, and every time I see her she is wearing a funky headband or bow or scrunchie or something, and seems to favor animal prints and bright colors.
Next I need to work on the lollipop flowers that my daughter and I are doing for her Valentines for her class. We have all the stuff we need to make them but have barely gotten started, and it's already the first of February! I've also got some other ideas floating around in my head for new products, so I'm hoping that sometime in the near future I can start working on those. Sigh..so much to do and so little time!
