Smile So excited about selling my cards!!!

Today was the first day that I brought samples of some of my cards into work and let a few co-workers know that I was selling handmade cards and that I would make to order. I ended up having orders for 24 cards!! I was floored. I thought a few people might buy one or 2 of the birthday cards or Valentine's Day cards but 2 people ordered 10 each to start!!!

I'm hoping that if I can get a few people to regularly buy notecard sets or assorted occasion sets that I can make enough to fulfill my monthly stamp club minimum.

Congrats!!! It's quite the 'rush' isn't it.. lol I was like that when I first stared to sell mine too, then it got to the point that each Christmas people call me starting in October to make their holiday cards. Each set is customized in color as well as wording. If they want a specific set from the catalog, then they have to order it, and the paper then they only pay me for my labor and my envelopes. (Around $1.00 each- only if they are ordering the stamps and ppr, if they use my supplies then $1.50 each incl envelope) CONGRATS again!! I hope this continues to go well for you.
