I hope you've had a great weekend.
The good news is that since
I gave up my job in London to concentrate on my Stampin' Up!
business two years ago, I'm pleased to say my business has grown. The
number of YouTube subscribers continues to grow, the number of hits my
blog receives each day has grown and the Likes on my Facebook business
page has grown, albeit at a much slower pace. At
the same time my team of Stampin' Up! demos has continued to grow and I
have demos who are working hard building their own businesses.
bad news is that there are not enough hours in the day for me to look
after all these things to the extent that I need to.
Unfortunately, it means I have to cut down in some areas, and one of
them is not posting to my blog everyday. I'm very upset I've had to make
this decision because I love creating cards and sharing them with you.
Needless to say I have talked this over at great length with hubby and I
accept this is the sensible way to go. There are other areas I will be
cutting back on, too. I've always prided myself that I have responded to
everyone who leaves a comment here on my blog, everyone who emails me
and everyone who comments on my videos. I will carry on with the first
two because the numbers are easily managed. However, from today, I will
still read ALL the comments on YouTube, and will click the Thumbs Up to
indicate I have read it, but I will only comment on those with questions.
Again, I'm not happy
that I'm having to cut back on this, but it is
sensible way to move forward.
been thinking about this - and putting it off - since the beginning of
the year but today's a good day to start because I going into hospital as a day patient for some tests. I don't think it's anything serious but I'm not
sure I'll be up to posting my blog tomorrow.
haven't worked out what days I'll do my blog, except definitely
Wednesdays and Sundays as they're video days. In the back of my mind I'm
hoping that maybe I can pop on each day, even if it's only with a quick
update about what I'm doing! I hope you understand my reasons for doing
this and hope you'll stay with me. Many thanks for your understanding. ☺
I close, I want to share these wooden crates with you that I bought
in Home Bargains, High Wycombe yesterday! We were on our way back from
visiting our dear friend Liz in Aylesbury and made the detour. My plan
is to use these to revamp my display when I do craft fairs. They were
surprising cheap in comparison to lots of others I've seen and the
quality is excellent. They feel like velvet to touch, they are so
smooth! The "handles" are cut out hearts. I bought three large and one
medium sized boxes, and will be used for my first craft show of the year
which is at the Gingham Goose Craft Market on 4th. March 2017. Thanks for telling me about Home Bargains, Maire!
That's it from me today, and (hopefully) until tomorrow, happy crafting.
