Happiness is Making a Sale

I listed this pretty Yellow and Binkie print striped baby 0-3 months size crocheted hat in my shop this morning.

I woke up to a sale over night.  It made me smile of course to know that someone out there likes what I make enough to want to purchase  the item.

I've always had an inferiority complex growing up.  What ever I did was never good enough for my family.  It wasn't me that was the problem but the fact that they were hard to please.

Yesterday I made the above hat and I made this hat too.  I kept really busy.  Usually I can only make one hat a day with everything else I have to get done.  I put in more hours yesterday on crafting and less on the internet promoting.

The most time consuming part of having a small business is the advertising.  I would rather spend more time crafting.  With that in mind it looks as though I'm going to end up paying out for advertising so that I can spend more time creating.

I'm not being cheap. I'm being frugal. I have a really small business and I want to keep the overhead costs down.  I think it is also being wise to rationalize the business expenses and remind myself of the goal of using the funds to pay for donor eggs or adoption.  However, with the holidays almost upon us I have rationalized that having an advertising budget would be quite wise so that I can keep up with the potential client requests.

Well it is time for me to finish up this post and get back to the advertising and creating portion of my daily program.   Wishing everyone out there much happiness today.

  2. Maybe you can put up flyers in different places. Like day cares etc. It is a cheap way to target your audience maybe.
