A fresh day, a new start...

Now that the Bella Parade is over, I need to do a few things...
Here's my not so long list
1. Make the buildings postcards for 4x6 group and send the monochromatic & buildings - target Mon 6th June.
2. Update my February Bee in Oz block tally - target - Sat 4th June
3. All my swap stuff - target - Sat 11th June
4. Aadi's Dr Suess Quilt - target - Sun 12th June
5. Send Fabric for my 1st Wed Bee - target - Mon 6th June

I'll add more things when I remember...
I also have to check on all the parcels that I have sent and have not been received... 

Hmmm, I also think I need to make my Business Cards...

Why do I need them??? Well, honestly, Reason # 1 - I have been using my Architect Shruti Dandekar stationary too long... And I dont think they really work with my 13 Woodhouse Road image...

I also will be participating in quite a few events and I find giving out good quality business cards really makes a lot of difference... Some of the stuff that I have received, came along with some really cute cards that I've kept properly... This also increases my chances of going back to that5 shop for buying stuff... I guess my customers too will feel the same way if I have an impressive card to accompany my stuff...

Also, when I am out meeting like-minded people, I'd like to exchange business cards... At that time, I do not like to have to write my blog and my Etsy shop URL on my current business card every time... I always keep a two sided business card holder with me to store cards - one side for my own cards and the other for the ones I receive. I later on sort them by the business... I do keep the cards received with my online orders in a drawer near my PC so that they are handy if I need to order something online... My other cards are in my folder (A4 size) - which also doubles as my Control Journal... (Didn't you know I am a Flylady fan?)

I am seriously thinking of ordering from Tiny Prints... They have a wonderful collection of business cards...

Have you checked out tiny prints yet? Do that... I assure you you will not be disappointed...

P.S. These views about are my own. I haven't been paid for saying this, but I will be getting 50 business cards from them for spreading the word!



  1. That will be good to receive a Postcard but don't forget the Circles/Triangles. You are a little behind:(
    btw I find it more fun to design and print my own cards.

  2. I use to make my own cards but I wanted something nicer looking. I ordered some at an awesome price-look for coupon codes-from Moo. Thick, two sided I imported pics for the back from my flicker. You can use different images and put a solid color(lime) with contrasting font (snow) on the back. I ended up doing both full and half size. I love the half size and have seen people use them as tags on quilts and things they sell. I always send one with my swap stuff. Good luck.

  3. No 1 on your list should have been "have a little rest"!


Thank you for your comments... I try to reply to all of them personally, but sometimes life is just too fast to do that... But I love hearing from you...
