So, I got a little side tracked….I had so much fun with my new blog!! I love posting, sharing ideas, and thoughts! I also enjoy reading everyone’s blogs as well! It’s like a whole new world out there!!!
I’ve been having fun posting the last two posts, more like, “how-to” posts :). One about my mini wreaths & the other on my gift box. I have to admit, I’m a little addicted to WordPress and my newfound Website :)!!!
I just want to stay on track here. During my journey, blog posting, and dreaming…. I came across some new inspiration and direction for my dream of working at home.
I do love refinishing furniture, but I want to add to this. When starting this whole process, I created a page on Facebook called “Mustard Seed Designs”. I wanted to showcase our projects to friends, family, and the world! 🙂 I later changed my name to “Mama’s Mustard Seeds”. I had this vision of a dream to share not only furniture projects, but a multitude of crafty ideas such as: Crafts, Home Décor, Recipes, Blog posts on DIY projects, and what ever else strikes my fancy :).
So here we are as “Mama’s Mustard Seeds”. Not just one “seed” or idea, but a variety of creative passions! :)..
My next goal for myself is to start a fund to fuel my business. We all know to start a business, it takes money!!! As I stated before I had a thought to sell my pieces in a consignment shop. I checked out one right by my house and their fee is 50% of the sale!!! I’m sure they are justified in doing this as they have a lot of overhead to pay for, but my start-up business can’t afford giving away 50% of my profits!! So, off to plan B!
I’m going to smart small, just as a mustard seed does ;). Since it is winter here in the beautiful state of Michigan, I’m going to start selling some other items that are hand crafted, that I can make in the coziness of my warm home. When the weather turns, I can start my larger, furniture projects once I can work outside again & my Mama is here to assist me with our projects and the kiddies :).
So, for now, Step 1: Make some crafty indoor projects & sell them on Etsy!!
As you may have seen, I posted these decorative mini wreaths that were red & teal. I’m going to list these very soon to begin my Mama’s Mustard Seed Business Fund! I will let you know how the selling goes!! 🙂
