Monday, Monday

Hey Monday!!
I had a fantastic weekend here! I hope you all did as well! We rode our dirtbikes all over our property mostly, and did a bunch of yard work. We also went to my fathers house and cleaned out his whole yard, which is very small, and took a load to the dump for him. We felt very accomplished and satisfied with ourselves! His yard looks great. It was a good weekend!
I have been incorporating more Kraft into my craft (ha), and have been enjoying it quite a lot. It really does go with just about any color combo, and adds a definite style and feel all it's own.
This is a set of three small note cards that I enjoy creating. And apparently, my customers enjoy them too! :) I cannot keep them stocked in my Etsy shop long!
Some quick selling tips:
~ Always finish the inside of each card. There should be somewhere for the customer to write.
~Sewing and brad prongs should never show through to the inside of the card. Period.
~Don't be stingy on the glue and adhesives. You do not want your card to fall apart at all. Ever.
~If a customer asks for a custom order, do it. You might acquire a customer for life! :)
I am going to get busy stamping and gardening today. I have a ton of card ideas in my head, and the weeds are taking over already! Yikes, which one to do first?? Probably cards!!

Thanks for putting up with me today!
