I guess I shall start with the bad news. My terms for Scrapping the Music is up and I decided not to extend it. Things are hectic these days, trying to get a business going and I don't want to put my other obligations on the back burner...it's just not fair to the others on the team. I'm going to miss that team...we were pretty tight nit. BUT the good news is that one of my fave people, Laura Fiore has taken over one of the spots so yay for her!!
I have an appointment to turn in my application for a home based business on Monday. Hopefully it won't take too long to get approved. SO...here is what I've decided to do. I am now an independent consultant for Memory Works. It's not exactly the route I WANTED to go, but it allows me to "legally" work from home.
I received my business packet in the mail yesterday and I can't wait to get started. I hope to have my first "party" at the end of the month. There's a few reasons why I chose this company. It carries the materials that I am familiar with and personally use. They put to company paper lines together in one kit at reasonable prices. Also, the monthly express kit is AWESOME. I'm waiting for the July one to come. At any rate, my website is all set up and ready to go. I've also started putting together an album featuring layouts that are made with what is sold on the site. I should also have a seperate blog setup for my customers with tips and sketches. Lots to do!!!
Yesterday was a great mail day. I got the Memory Works business packet, my Magistical Memories kit (OMG DROOOOOOOOL), and Josh's Dad sent me a computer. No more dumb laptop for me!!! I just need to get on the ball and reinstall all of my programs onto this one.
I've gotten word that there is going to be another Bazaar at one of the neighboring bases next month. I emailed those in charge and I hope to get a table to sell my crafts. I've gotten started on paper bag albums, then I hope to start on those word albums in a week or so. Then I plan on doing a bunch of cards. This is going to be a great way to use up my old stash and hopefully make some extra cash.
OH! Who gets the scrapbook.com newsletter?? Well, in the most recent one this layout was featured as one of the fresh pages! Pretty cool! I made it for A Daily Inspiration. We've started a new format. Instead of featuring layouts/projects with materials that Scrapbookmate stocks, we've started doing manufacturer spotlights. We're doing Luxe Designs for the next couple of weeks. It's great b/c I LOOOOVE their products.
It was a big hit, and I'm glad. :) It's one thing to buy something for someone, but to make something from the heart makes it unique and special.
ScrapMojo is back after a short hiatus! And we have a super special guest...the one...the only ELSIE! I squeeled when I found out she'd be the guest b/c I LOOOOVE her line of products.
Ummm. That's it I believe. Hope you stop by the Daily Inspiration blog. Seriously there's some outstanding work going up!
