Necessary Things

There are apparently certain things that are “necessary” when running a crafting oriented business. I am clueless when it comes to most of them. Here are a couple I know about. Let me know of others…please!

The blog – for starters. It’s a good thing I actually enjoy it!

“Do you have a crafty blog?”

“Why, yes! Yes, I do!”

I like blogging so much that I have 3 blogs (or at least I like the idea of blogging…sometimes they are a bit neglected, I admit). My fabric blog (you’re here!), my handmade/personal blog, and a group blog (under construction at the moment…I’ll post a link when it’s running again). I like to think there are more than 2 of you out there that read my blog. Let me live in my imaginary world a bit longer, please!

The Flickr group – so everyone can see how wonderfully creative all of you (or both of you) are! *NEW* click here!

“Melanie, here’s a picture of a chair I recovered using fabric from you.”

“That is AWESOME! Post it to my flickr group!!!!!”

Well, the flick group just came about today. Please post some pictures to it. I uploaded one, to test it out. But I think it would be kinda dorky if I just uploaded a bunch of things I made 🙂 Thanks to both of you!

My grand idea is that I will also have a page on my website for customer creations. I thought it would be up already, but other, more pressing, things keep happening. SO – the flickr group is a start! Go post some pictures 🙂

And what good would a post be without a picture? I wish I had something exciting to show you. Well, fabric is always exiting, right? When I went to a textile show up in Phoenix, I saw this print. I had to have it. It is SO pretty in person. I am not going to the Portland quilt show (can you hear me sobbing?) but I’ll save that for another day.

And I need to do the tagged thing…but I have not come up with 6 cool things to share yet. I’ll get to it, Louise! I promise 🙂 All for now.

    The Flickr group is a great idea! When I started the Craft Apple Patterns Flickr group, it was a whole lotta my stuff. I was so thrilled when someone posted their stuff!

    Sorry, I have no idea what else is involved in a craft-related business.

    Glad you haven’t forgotton Melanie – I am watching you 😉 Great idea with the Flickr group – just as soon as I stop coveting my AB I bought from you – I will get to sewing it!
