July is coming to a close

Seems like it was the first day of summer only a few weeks ago and there's only 6 weeks left until the first day of school! I have been so busy the last few months trying to figure out how to network and get my on line shop name "out there" & pick up some biz. It sure isn't & hasn't been easy, exactly as I was told. However, my passion for what I do far outweighs the trials, costs, setbacks, and frustration of trying to sell your own product and name. There are also payoffs even before the money starts coming in. Most of that is being able to be here for the kids, especially in the summer. Nothing can take the place of being your own kids mom! I've wondered for years what it would be like to "make it" doing my craft, making quality products that last, are made by hand, made in the USA, and support a hard working single mother. I admire all of you SAHMs as well as you crafters that are doing and attempting to do the same. Hats off to handmade, all the love sweat and tears that go into our craft, determination , talent, and the time & heart it takes to do all of it! Have a great weekend!

Well Said! Hang in there. Everything you do now, will start to pay off in the long run. It's hard to believe it now, but it really will. Once you make a friend (happy customer), they will come back AND tell their friends about you! Put customer service and product value above all else and you WILL have happy customers, who are also friends!!! Thanks for a good read.
