So Much Going On

So I haven't posted in a few days....I know I know....bad blogger! Anyhow since the last time I posted I made 3 MORE sales on Etsy! I sold these two plus the orange set from a previous post.I'm getting really inspired to make more. I feel like by buttons are cute and reasonably priced so they might do well. I'm going to add to the shapes. For the first little while I'll be sticking to my wobbly round ones but eventually I'll be adding wobbly square ones, hearts, stars etc. If anyone out there in the land of bloggers/cyber space would like to see a certain design of buttons, say for example an arrow or anything else, let me know. I design my own styles and have a local company cut them out for me. Also I have been busy with a few other things regarding my Etsy shop. I am getting a banner made for the shop as well as bag toppers. I am working on the packaging
aspect of my product. I also bought
cellophane bags to put them in. Now the product will have a professional store bought appeal to it.

On a side note, I was wandering through cyberspace today when I stumbled upon THIS site.... www.iloveflipbooks.com. Oh my gosh, how cute and original Basically the idea is that this company will set up a booth at a party, wedding, corporate events etc. Guests can come in and make a 6 second video clip. There are a lot of props if the guests want to use them for the video. Anyhow after the video is complete, right in front of them a little flip book is made that they can take home. What is a flip book you ask? Remember in school when one would doodle on the corner of a page, and draw the same
thing on the next page but at a slightly different level, and continue
with this for several pages? Then
when you would flip through it, it would look like a moving object. Well
imagine that with your video on paper!!!!

Ok until next time....take care!
