Wishing all of our followers and customers a Happy New Year. May everyone reach their goals in 2012.
So, as you can see we've changed our colours. I think that we need some changes. After this past season we really need to rethink where we are going to go. I know that I get limited feedback from readers... which I wish was different. We will definitely come up with some great Ideas.
Lulu and I have been contemplating ways to get people to the site. I was working on Twitter and some other social network sites to drum up some interest... there was a little... Never enough. The other source were the shows we were doing. So, it turns out, we in fact, do get people coming to our site after seeing us at the various shows but the social networking may not benefit us enough to see a profit from all the effort. So, here is the next experiment.
Anyhow who comes to this site and reads my blogs and give just one piece of feedback will be entered in to a mini Contest where someone can win a pair of Red Lego Stud Earrings (I'd pierce my ear just so that I could wear them... they are that cool.). I am hoping that I will get 100 people leaving some comments or feedback (constructive) in the next 24 hrs. We shall see...
We are currently running a sock monkey drive and it seems to be working! We've had more online sales that ever before. I am very excited. We also discovered that we cannot ship products for Christmas (meaning: any parcel sent in the mail today will not get to the city by Xmas) outside of Toronto. This Friday the 16th is the deadline.
As for the shows this year: Not great. There were a number of 1st-time-ever craft shows that just couldn't bring in the traffic. Very limited turn outs. 3 duds. Oh well, such is life in the world of crafting. I think that Canadians need to increase their appreciation for handmade crafts... like in the US. Mind you I think that the sheer number difference in population has a direct effect... I am ranting. I am looking forward to having a break from crafting.
lulu & mika craft and make many beautiful items. Always creating and working together.
