I’ve reached a milestone in my little business. One that most would think is silly.
It’s called, buying in bulk.
That’s right. It made so much more sense to start buying my packaging supplies in bulk, instead of taking constant runs to the office supply store. I feel pretty awesome about it.
Today is the last day to buy “made to order” items from my shop for the holidays. HOWEVER, I have several items that are “ready to ship”, meaning you can buy them all the way up to this Sunday and still get them in time for Christmas. Items like this:
I can’t wait for you all to see the Christmas card Matt and I made this year. Coming soon…
It’s funny. The second you break something suddenly you need it all the time. “Need” being an exaggeration in this case. When my printer broke about a month ago, a few weeks went by and I hardly noticed. Then it seemed like everything I wanted to make and sell needed some sort of card, tag or fabric tag. I was able to preoccupy myself with some other projects but just recently I’ve decided to hold “shop hours”. Two days a week where I spend time working on projects to sell, or updating/expanding my shop. So after a while I caved and bought a new printer. Now all I can do is think about what to print next.
Yeah for printers! Don’t these look awesome!? I’m so excited about them. I think these scrabble magnets make perfect little “thank you” gifts or stocking stuffers. So, If you can’t make your own scrabble magnets…I’ve got you covered.
If you could have a scrabble magnet that said anything…what word would you choose? Can you tell I’m searching for ideas? I’ve come up with a few more, but I bet your suggestions will get me to think outside the box.
