unmotivated

Good thing I have my Market to do today, if I were staying home I would get NOTHING done! Ever feel that way? It's very unusual for me! Hope you all have a great day!

My favorite thing when its cold....

at Market is my flannel lined jeans. My sweet husband got them for me this last holiday season, prolly tired of hearing me whine about how cold I was! LOL Anyhow, if you stand outside for extended periods of time, I highly recommend these, they make a HUGE difference! (of course if you want to be REALLY fashionable wear leg warmers too! ha ha) http://www.haband.com/index.cfm/fuseaction/products.detail/productID/02EE7D87-0983-468A-8964-F199FC4970AB/

Don't put all your eggs.....

in one basket. I was just reading an interesting post about someone that had their Etsy shop temporarily suspended, it rocked their world to say the least, here's the link for you http://www.handmadeology.com/etsy-shop-suspended-what-you-need-to-know/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+handmadeology%2Ffeed+%28Handmadeology+Today%29 the think to tale away is this" Don't just have ONE main mean of distribution for you r company. Diversify! I learned through the New Venture class I took years ago that the "distribution chain" can be more important than the actual item you're producing; if you have no way of getting it to your customers, it's pretty non-existent! Just a reminder, make sure you have more than one means of sale for your customers!

Little Thank You's

It's a nice touch when you're sending out an order to enclose a little handmade note. I thought I'd share what I usually do:
Which I bought at this Etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/AsspocketProductions I was really happy with the quality and speed at which I received the stamp. I also use "mini cards" from www.peculiarparchment.etsy.com .The main thing is, do find a way of including a little "thank you" to your customers!

The new tool

So the post below is from that new Marketing tool I wrote about the day before. You have the option of including more information to the post, I just added a little bit of information to the post. I like that it still prompts folks to visit the Etsy shop. I have been really happy with this tool so far, I do encourage you to take a peek, its been a real time saver for me. Yesterday I plugged in all the promo stuff for the week and it was awesome!
