Slow, but moving forward...

Wow, it's really been a while since I have written.  As I fit my hobby, dream, new found passion of a card making business into my "life", I am making progress.  I have been working on creating an efficient work space, organizing my "work room". ( Hence the photo).  I finalized my logo for my cards, tweaked my solicitation letters and created the packaging for the sets of cards.  I have sent about 5 sets of samples cards with the letters to some Sedona businesses.  So far I have had one "no thank you" response.  I am considering it a "no thank you" as opposed to a rejection, because not only is that a more positive way of approaching it, I am really guessing at some of the businesses and the cards might not be something they would "normally" carry. So I will keep trying, since there are so many businesses in Sedona.  I will also try businesses other than Sedona and keep my options open.  I plan to start creating more photo note cards that are, in general, for all audiences and locations.  I am still enjoying the process and wish I could do more than I am able to at this time, but for now I will just keep doing what I can.
