Marketing Idea!

Happy Saturday Everyone!! So as I mentioned before, I am process of starting a business. I could not have picked a worse time to do so...Lol. I really need to get more product added to my sites.....but, sometimes finding the time to sew is very limited. Especially lately as my husband has been doing a lot of studying and test taking for promotions in the Fire Department :) Understandable his work comes before my sewing :( Anyway, I have been trying to think of more ways to market myself. If anyone has any ideas please leave me a comment. I am going to leave my business cards in local stores that have community bulletin boards. I didn't want to just pin my card up so I made a little card holder(see picture). I took some card stock I had from an earlier project, cut a slot for the business cards, and attached them to business post cards I had ordered. Then I placed stickers on to spell out "Take One". I think this will be much more eye catching than just pinning several business cards to a bulletin board. What do you think? Feedback, suggestions, and advise is always welcome. I just want to have a successful business at some point. But I know it takes time. It also takes patience(which I do not have much patience AT ALL).

Oh I almost forgot to mention that I have added some Tutorials I'd like to try in the side bar. They are offered by some great sites, check them out if you haven't already seen them. I am in the process of making a few thing of my own, and will be making tutorials for them at some point. Well, hopefully I will be able to get a project or two in today. If not my husband is off tomorrow and I will definitely get something done then! Til next time, Sew, sew, bake(Muffins for the kiddies), and sew!! Also don't forget to enjoy your weekend!

Salutations! I'm Beth from Sew Craft Blog #1 and I just wanted to say hello! I also just started an etsy store. I actually am using it more as a way for people locally to see what I make for a few craft fairs that I am doing in November and December. Good luck to all of us on Etsy! Beth
