I also had a quick peek at FaceBook but I think I will let my sons teach me the intricacies and etiquette of that new world.
One common thread that the business seminars that I went to at the trade show came back to time and time again was the power of social media for the small business. So my next gathering of information will be about Twitter (sounds cute!)
It is funny how life sometimes seems to know exactly what you need and sends you a gift. I volunteered to help with the publicity of a sponsored virtual round the world cycle ride for Erewash Valley Gymnastics Club recently and as a result have gained invaluable information for the setting up of my business. I must remember to post a link to the clubs Facebook page when it is ready.
I will be teaching some card classes soon so today I got on with designing some cards in preparation. We will be having a play with distress inks and blending brushes so I have designed 3 cards that are a variation on a theme. Hope you like them.
