It’s Spring and Summer Sewing Time Once Again

| March 29, 2012

I don’t know about the weather where you are, but here in Florida it appears that Spring may have been left out this year and summer jumped right in! Regardless of the temperatures, it’s very much time for all of us to begin our regular “new season” sewing.  I’d like to recommend you check out our [...]

How To Save On Packing And Shipping

| March 10, 2012

For those of us who ship items that we’ve designed and crafted all around the globe, there is the constant issue of prices going up. Postal Service rates have gone up once again as well as prices on products we use for packing our products. We have learned, through trial and error, a few things [...]

How To Make A Purse From A Girls’ Skort

| October 4, 2011

A couple weeks ago I talked about attending the local Mom2Mom kids resale event.  Not only is this a great place to buy ultra cheap clothing items for the kids/grandchildren, it is also the most AWESOME place to find items to recycle into craft/sewing projects that can be used for gifts, selling at your craft [...]

One Stop Shopping Spot For Sewing/Crafting Items

| September 15, 2011

There is a semi-annual “Mom2Mom” consignment sale held at our local fairgrounds that draws huge crowds of buyers as well as consignors.  This year my daughter and I participated as a consignor (for the first time), so on Monday I stood in line for our 10:00 a.m. drop-off appointment time.  I was there at 9:30 and [...]

When You Get “Snowed Under” With Sewing……

| September 7, 2011

I’m just wondering if anybody out there gets into a “sewing rut” like I do!!!  Sometimes it feels like I’m just so “over my head” with sewing projects and things that HAVE to be done TODAY that the rest of my life seems to fade away. It doesn’t matter whether you’re doing a major sewing [...]

How To Make Extra Money — WRITE!

| March 24, 2011

All of us in any type of sewing, crafting or alteration business have SOMETHING that we are “known” for!  Do you have a special knack for making children’s painting aprons that every pre-K and Kindergarten parent wants for their children?  Perhaps you have a special way of getting more work done than anybody you know!  [...]

Whose Products Do You Promote Most?

| March 1, 2011

How much time do you spend deciding which products to promote on your website or blog?  Let’s think about it for a minute — XYZ company pays 7% commission for every sale and has lots of great items that can be promoted.  ABC company pays 10% commission, but somehow their products don’t appeal to me as [...]

Petite Children Have Special Sewing Needs Too!

| February 22, 2011

We talk and read so much about plus size children – how difficult it is to fit them as well as the fact that there are getting to be more and more children in the “overweight” and “obese” categories. With so much talk about the plus sizes, we rarely hear about  small petite children.  I [...]

Who Makes The Most Affiliate Income?

| February 14, 2011

I have been reading quite a few articles about those “super” affiliates and how much money they are making.  But, WHO are those super affiliates, and how much money does it take to actually satisfy somebody who is working the affiliate markets? Oh,  I’d be really happy to be one of those who can say [...]

Lessons Learned From Attending A Conference

| February 2, 2011

Denise and I attended a blogging conference this past week in Nashville, and I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t matter WHAT type of business you’re in, the information at these conferences is top notch! Of course, because this was a “blogging” conference, their workshops and classes were all about helping each other, promoting [...]
