Cross Stitch Key Chains
I love to make cross stitch portable. The new items for my Etsy shop are cross stitched embellished key chains. This is a great way to try out new stitches and patterns and use the left over fabric from larger projects.
I'm a real Bunny!
In one day I've obtained my office City of Seattle Business License, applied for my state Master business license and soon my retail license. So in short I'm a real bunny now, just like the velveteen rabbit.
With my real business status comes a new direction, becoming a profitable business. To help achieve that goal I joined the Etsy Holiday Boot Camp, I'm developing new products for the Holidays, expanding my ninja line, revising my product prices and introducing new cross-stitch patterns and kits.
Back in August I attended the Conference of Creative Entrepreneurs in Seattle (CCE). The weekend was packed full of workshops, inspiring presentations and lots of opportunity for discussion and networking. I met wonderful artists and learned a great deal about running a creative business and staying inspired.
One of those artists Blogged about her experience at the conference here www.waxypin.typepad.com.
