Being a Grown-Up Crafter...

Do you consider yourself a 'grown-up'? I've been a teacher for nearly 9 years in total and yet I still don't think of myself as an adult. When kids say 'miss' it's fine, when they say 'Miss Phillips' I get a little freaked out. But I am beginning to come to terms with being a proper grown-up and have taken some steps into adulthood: I now have my own business cards! Yes, I know most people have had them for, like, ever but I've always thought of them as being what proper adults have and I have never really thought that I am a proper adult. But as my craft sales are beginning to take off and my printer doesn't like me very much, it seemed about time to get some. Actually I didn't - the lovely Andy designed and bought them for me. THANK YOU!
I was soooo excited when I opened these for the first time I nearly clapped my hands like a little girl (see I TOLD you I haven't grown up yet!) Aren't they great?


Now that I've got my business cards, I guess I really should start getting busy for a craft fair or some more Etsy sales. Please feel free to look at my etsy store and take your pick!  

But before I can prepare for a craft fair there is something I need to get on with first. Remember all that material I bought? Well it's been going to good use here at Creating Trouble HQ... It's time to reveal part II of the grand project. This bit is looking a little more complete and I guess that some of it is beginning to take shape. Can you guess what the whole piece is going to be yet?

Business cards always make things official, don't they? You are a grown-up but don't ever forget the fun & innocence of your youth. That's what will keep you feeling spry and fresh when the going gets tough and the adult world becomes far too serious. I LOVE the quilt work you do! Congratulations on the higher success you are enjoying with your craft sales. xoxo Ange

How fun! I have gotten business cards in the past year, but must admit that I forget to put them in orders. And since I always seem to be adding new shops, I only have cards for half my shops. Oh well. I guess I am half grown up!

Loving your business cards, well done on creating them! Moo is the best. I also have mine from there, alongside other products.
All the best to you and your shop, and thanks so much for the feature, was great to be here.
