I have a little confession-I didn't really want to run a business...I really initally just wanted two things:
1. A way to support my fabric-buying habit (obsession)
2. Have something to say when people asked that dreaded question "What do you do?"
However, I have learned in the short two and a half months that Camp Cupcake Designs has been in business is that when you treat something like something, it responds. That is, if I treat what I do as an actual business, my business responds in kind. I am learning to run my business (and my homemaking!) in a way that is intentional, defined and goal/task oriented. I am currently working on defining my business goals so that my business plan is intentionally moving in one direction.
In order to do this, I want to gather feedback from those around me- my friends and family, blog and Twitter friends, other Etsy/handmade folks and anyone else that may feel so inclined. And-wait! Here is the good part- I am offering an incentive to you giving me your two cents!
This is a small stroller blanket made from the coveted Heather Ross Medocino fabric line, backed in super soft minky fabric and has coordinating grosgrain ribbon sewn in to keep baby interested. The colors in this fabric is very modern and grown-up with a sweet underwater theme...Similar blankets (which just sold out this morning!) in my store sell for $25.00 :) Even if you don't have a girl (I know the feeling!), this blanket would make a great shower gift or a sweet doll blanket for an older child... So, how do you get this little goody to end up at your house? I am going to make this as easy as possible...simply visit my store and give me feedback in the comments! What kind of feedback? Tell me what you like, what you don't like (I am serious!), what you would like to see in the store, what you would like to see MORE of in the store, or critique my banner/pictures/etc. Now- go forth and comment! This giveaway will be running through Sunday, January 31st and will announce the winner Monday, February 1. I will draw the winner from the comments with a random number drawer (that way, everyone is equal, regardless of positive or constructive feedback...)
