During the last week or so I’ve been working on the business taxes, my eyes getting tired from looking at the grids of my spreadsheets and wishing every state had the same method of submitting taxes online. Some sites are much easier to navigate that others.
With such a deep inspection of the business numbers and the sales activities of 2012 I naturally get eager to start the new year of production. I also wonder what new things I can offer to my adoring public not only to satisfy them, but also to make the new year even more lucrative than the last.
I was commissioned to make a special set of drink charms and with my customer’s permission I’ve decided to take her idea to the public. Tell me what you think…
Of course this is a display of the images only and not the charms themselves. I hope they appeal to fashionistas everywhere. I’ve got a few charms up for sale in my shop and these will be a nice addition, don’t you think?
I also have some ideas for votive cups and candle hurricanes that will take a little developing. It won’t be long before I get back into Craftland and start creating.
Another thing I’ve been up to is designing new business cards. The design is a little more in tune with my “brand” and has the same look as my blog and my Etsy banner. Check it out…
It’s not horribly imaginative and I forgot to include my little tagline, but it has every contact source I have, so there’s no excuse for anyone not being able to get in touch with me or keeping up with the latest happenings at the Auntie B’s Wax World Headquarters.
Not only that, I put in an order for my copy of Midwest Art Fairs which should arrive early next month. I’ll spend a lot of time going through that to get an idea of what shows I’d like to apply to in addition to my usual favorites. I’m hoping to do one or two more shows this year compared to last and may also cut some shows out of my repertoire. Stay tuned by checking in on the 2013 Events tab above.
So, yes, I’m off and running, which always happens during sales tax submission time. Planning, working, and anticipating make the winter months so much fun!
