Time to re-invent yourself!

How to be successful in your Craft Business!

How will you be successful with any business you own and operate.. you always have to stay ahead of the curve.  Just because you do one thing and it is successful, doesn't mean that is always going to be a successful venture. You always have to be on top of what is trending, what is happening with the economy and try to figure out what you can do to be a success in business and you will be most importantly HAPPY doing it.

If you are not getting sales in your shop, take a close look at your shop.  Is it because of your listings, photographs or tags or is it because the things you are selling are just not what your target market is interested in buying. 

Most importantly, you must have be happy with what you are doing.  If you have something in your shop that you are making and selling 100's of, are you really happy make that one item over and over.  I wouldn't be...

You don't have to have 100 + listings either. If you make a good-quality product and have 10 of them, then they will sell! 

Most importantly you must love it and it must be your passion!

Upcycle! Keep it and Renew it!

Just finished working on this slipcover for a friend of mine.  I added an additional design element to the bottom that I had not done before.  It is simply a Boxing Band 8" high x width of the piece around the bottom sides and back.  It is a great way to pull the slip cover together in the end when things are not so perfect above.  Covers up all the imperfections.  Let me know if you have any questions.  Now to start with the Wing Chair.. pictures to follow!
