It's been an amazing couple of weeks at Mad As HQ! I've started a new course about better branding for business so expect to see even bigger changes coming on the website, facebook page and other net presences (I've also been told that there are ways to link and cross post my content!)
I've been working with my gorgeous photographer, Crystal, to better represent my creations. It's been a gargantuan effort on her part to photograph and then edit over two hundred pieces. The backgrounds that she's using keep the piece as the main focus and they are represented in their glorious beauty.
Of course, this means that I will need to sit down and get very serious about uploading, writing product descriptions, and starting to make things available to purchase online (which is both scary and exciting).
Mostly I've been focusing on cleaning out and stock taking in the storage shed, let me be the first to say that I have too much yarn. Seriously. I may have a yarn hoarding habit at this point. Every second box or random bag I opened to sort was more yarn! Of course, this has been great for my stocktake, everything is being entered into spreadsheets and pricing is being written down when receipts are available, I can literally figure out per meter how much each ball of yarn is worth and I've been brainstorming ideas to use up the excess.
In the next two weeks I'm aiming to have a draft copy of my business plan up on the site for the curious to have a read through, and I'll do a much longer piece (With Photos) of the sorting of the craft spaces. That may become a few parts that covers the conversion of chaos to... well less chaos with better structure for finding things.
That's all from me this week!
Keep on crafting!
