Woah, where did the last month go?! The holidays went by like a blur, so much happening makes time speed right by. I hope everyone had a nice holiday season. We had some unusually heavy snow here (Portland, OR) so I had a few quiet days off.
For the past few years I've relied on google searches and word of mouth for my website traffic. Starting this year I'm going to be a bit more active in getting the word out, especially for my growing rubber stamp catalog. Starting in the Jan/Feb 09 issue of Somerset Studio you'll see my ad:
I will be advertising with them all year, and am eager to see if this provides a boost in my sales. If any of you frequently browse or purchase a certain craft magazine, particularly for stamping, I'd love to hear which magazines you like best. I've had my eye on Stampers Sampler and Take Ten, but I'm really hoping to submit actual cards/art projects to them instead of just advertisements. Just in case anyone who uses my stamps didn't know, I reward you for sending your projects in to craft magazines. (More about that here.)
I've started designing two new stamp sheets which I should be sharing with you all in the next week or so. For now here's a little something I did that went along with a present for a friend who appreciates all-natural soaps/cosmetics and recycled goodies. ( Stamps from here )
New stuff coming soon!
