This week I haven’t made much as after last week’s giveaway from Wendy at Handmade harbour I was inspired to try and look at my craft business from all angles and see how it could become more commercially viable. I had really enjoyed reading the snippets from the ‘Commercial Creatives’ book which was one of the prizes, and as I didn’t win, I decided I would buy it. I love ‘real’ books but they can be heavy and I have a Kindle it seemed the obvious choice to choose the e- download version. So woohoo, within a few moments I was reading the book.! If you missed the post last week here is a link to the book. So far I am lapping up every bit of advice and information. I haven’t read it all so will review it again when I have finished.
Looking critically round my craft room I was thinking that it is just too messy and haphazard to inspire my creativity. Then under a heap of (haphazard) patchwork squares I found the lovely little photo album my daughter bought me for christmas with idea being that I take pictures of all my work and stick them in the photo album as a showcase for all the things I make. Then I have something to take with me to craft fairs for people to browse through and maybe ask for a custom order! So now I am collecting all my items and printing out pictures of things I’ve already sold ready to stick in the album.
Hopefully I will have a showcase album soon which I will take a picture of for this blog!
Happy blogging and crafting everyone
