Brace Yourself? January 14, 2010

I have always wanted to go into business for myself. My friend Christine and I always joke that we are going to start an event planning business or and organization business. I would love to be in charge of my schedule and in charge of the kind of work I do. But starting your own business takes capital and connections and a lot of time. And frankly, I don’t have any of those things. So my own business is a pipe dream, something you dream and wish for, but ultimately you know it would be very difficult to do, if you ever do it at all.

But around Christmas time I kept being encouraged to start my own business. Not an organization or a design business, but a business to sell my bracelets. Really, people like these things enough that they think other people would pay money for them? Seriously? I love them and I think they are pretty but selling them? I don’t know about that.

The more I thought about it the more I thought, heck yes I should sell them. Everyone I have given one to loves it! Why would I sell them?

Thanks to my sister in law, I already know what to call this little business venture: Brace Yourself.

What do you think?

Spinning Around November 13, 2009

I have been so busy the past week and a half that I truly feel like my head is spinning. I have worked overtime 2 days this week, taken over another person’s position as well as maintained mine and done the whole wife and mother thing in the evenings and this past weekend. I am glad it’s Friday so I can catch up on some laundry and sleep!

In the little bit of time I have had at home I have made some Christmas cards as well as a birthday card that I want to share with everybody!

Thanks for stopping by and please feel free to comment or offer suggestions for new cards or bracelets! This weekend I am going to try some things with paint instead of just ribbon!

I thought I would share last weeks crafty projects. Enjoy!

On this card, I tried to step out of my usual color scheme and went with more dark, fall-like colors. But I had to throw some bright blue and lime green in to keep cheerful!

A really simple and quick Christmas card that I whipped up just because I really need to get started or I am not going to have enough cards! The picture quality is bad, sorry about that.

This card was for my Grandpa’s birthday and I had a lot of fun making it. It has a lot going on but I think it turned out nice. And I love a little glitter!

And finally a new bracelet. I have a LOT of these to make between now and Christmas!

I love to craft! I thought I might share a few of the things I have made recently. It is a really great way to wind down at night after I put the babies to bed, and it makes me feel like I have accomplished something.

So I just thought I would show a few things that I have made recently. (These pictures aren’t good, but I am still trying to figure out the best way to take a picture of my crafts so bear with me.)
