I know it's been too long, but actually I have been busy making my studio grow. We have expanded to cover some craft classes and scrapbooking events, but the sewing, knitting and crocheting are still number one. Over the past few months we have added new shelving, equipment, and supplies. As you can see it's expanded to the point where storage is becoming an issue. Excess supplies are being stored in an extra bedroom/office and taken out as needed. I would like to say that we are proud to be keeping true to the fact that Craft Zone is still recycling and reusing what others need to get rid of, although I am taking full advantage of sales and coupons to build my inventory and equipment.
I have also taken time to go to craft events and crops to see what the craft industry is doing and to tell you the truth my head is spinning with everything new. I have done a lot of personal growing at the same time my company is. I have many ideas for the future of the Craft Zone. I have spent many hours researching and working on a business plan and learning as much as I can, and am getting ready to learn about the advertising industry to start placing ads. All of this keeps me very busy, but I wouldn't change anything at this point.
To all of my friends that I haven't seen in a while I hope that you can understand the work load and maybe come and spend some time playing with us at the Craft Zone. I could use some time to slow down and see what it has become and enjoy your company. To those interested in any use of the space including lessons and rental, feel free to contact me and we will make arrangements.
I hope the holiday season brings good cheer to all and I promise to be more diligent at keeping my blog updated.
