I have been way business-y all last week. I really want these mobiles to take off because I have so much fun making them and also because this summer is my last attempt at making Pink Cheeks a working business. If I can't get it to work, then it's back to the daily grind and little man needs to head to day care. It wouldn't be horrible. Maybe it would even be okay or nice. I know Walter would like hanging out with other kids, but it would be a pretty rocky transition for him. But, I really like our sweet, unfeasible life right now. Working from home, with little boo right here by me. Being creative daily. I quickly become koo-koo crazy beans when I can't work with my hands. So, the point is, I am really going for it and reading all those "Turn your Craft into a Business" chapters that I skipped over before. I am making a press kit! Ooooooh! And, I am working on making my mobiles more fancy and customizable:
Here is my Mustachioed customizable sheet. I made it on Pages from iwork. Do you use that? I love it. It flew into my life and saved me from the confusion of photoshop. It is like a cool high-tech angel with converse sneakers on. Pages makes me feel in control. Thank you Pages!
|I also designed several cards to be gifted to the wee ones that people buy the mobiles for. Like little keepsakes for the baby book. I think they are a good way of showing someone that the mobiles are handmade by one woman artist (and mom).|
