A little this, a little that.

Hello! Loving this bouquet I stumbled upon...and look closely...some of those flowers are paper! Wouldn't this look lovely on a desk? Just the burst of mid-day inspiration I need sometimes. 

Speaking of jolts of inspiration...thrilled so many creative lovelies stopped by to chat about business yesterday. We talked about passion driven business and I'm impressed by how many people shifted their focus yesterday to align their business with their passion. I received some truly inspiring & uplifting emails from fellow creative entrepreneurs forging their way! I am really looking forward to chatting more next Wednesday and am ironing out details now.  In case you missed it, we'll be covering a different business related topic each week (submitted by you!) and I'm currently ironing out the details and guest posts. 

The topics we have for now include:
  • Identifying your target market
  • Developing a niche
  • Branching out into wholesale
  • Growing into a brick and mortar shop
  • Establishing your shop online and on Etsy
  • Product development 
  • Fine tuning a concept
What other topics would you like to add? Look forward to seeing you back next week for more discussion and support!


And because I've somehow turned to all things spring this week, I thought I'd share this super cinchy and awesome tutorial from Centsational Girl on creating hand stamped linen tea towels.  A little burst of color is just what we need around here! 


{obsessively pinning more spring favorites on my Pinterest Boards.  Just. Can't. Stop. Help!}

So happy that you included both my topics!

Thank YOU so so so much!

Another one that comes to mind: perhaps the best way to source wholesale suppliers?

I'm waiting to learn about -Establishing your shop online and on Etsy; I have started my online in 2010 on Ebay(domestic) and etsy(international).
Ebay is doing well,But in my etsy shop I could love understand what to focus more to increase the sale.

Thank you ladies! Look forward to covering more for you both.

@Daffys - I will definitely get into how to establish yourself on Etsy, though if you're looking for advice specific to your shop, you might be interested in coaching or a site review? I'm happy to answer your questions about that.

Have a lovely Friday!
