OK, not such an original title!

I am trying to start a card business this year (on top of trying to craft more, eat healthier, be more environmentally friendly...yada, yada, yada...)  Anyway, I did a few things to help this little business plan along.

1) Create a book for sketches (so far this year only about 10 pages are filled...and I didn't photograph any of them)
The big one is for home, the little one to take with me.  They are books I had lying around (I have a rather large collection of blank books...now that I make my own, I need to find a way to re-use or re-purpose them!)

2) Create a cork-board to keep notes on (this image also shows the website I have created along with a logo/business name/business card and my plan for what to do )

3) Beyond just crafting more and making more cards, I wanted a challenge to last all year.   I found a website (http://eliseblaha.typepad.com/paper08/) that I plan to follow for the year...this is the journal I created out of scraps I had lying around.  I am trying to make more scrapbook pages too (I have never done one before this year!)  I showed to pages I liked as well as the front of the journal.  I am super happy with how this turned out.

I wish I could be just half as productive as you so that I could finally get my business off the ground! Well done.

Wow! I love it all! As nerdy as it sounds, it makes me feel very happy and excited to be organized. xD I also love the business name and the journal things. I LOVE journals/notebooks just because they make me feel even more organized.

Ahem.. Anyway, nice resolution and plan! I wish you tons of good luck with your business!

(Psst! I'll take some extra blank journals. x])
