First up, for those that don’t know, I make/design personalized stationary, invitations, etc. I also have started making slings and burp cloths. My “business” is called Character Creations.
This past Tuesday, I was invited to participate in a business showcase. Several local women got together to showcase their businesses. There were seven of us total. This was the first time I’ve ever been involved in something like this and I was very nervous as to what people would think of my cards and slings.
The turn out was not huge but I got five orders for cards, in addition to an order I’m already working on and I sold one sling and two sets of burp cloths! Yippee!!!
I’m so excited to be able to do this. I love making and designing cards but I worry about whether other people will like them…they do! I am very excited that I can do this for fun and a little profit.
Oh, yeah, Josiah came with me and was a great little demonstrator of the slings. He did get a little fussy towards the end though.
