I can help you with your business!

business-adviceAt the highest tier on my GoFundMe campaign, I’m offering up to a month of business support including:

*Online storefronts
*Customer retention
*Customer service
*Social media
*Packaging and shipping
*Product photos
*Increasing sales
*Guerilla marketing
*Answering all of your questions (email with a few phone calls too)

Once I began offering these services, I realized this is a real passion for me – helping others grow their business by sharing what I’ve learned over the past 10 years.  You should have seen the length of my first email!  I had to stop myself LOL!  There are so many things I’ve learned from experience and teaching myself, and I can’t wait to share them.

Since I’m enjoying this so much, I thought I would offer it on Etsy and my website as well.  Here is the Etsy link:  Professional Advice for your Craft Business  It’s $150 for up to 1 month of ongoing support including any and all of the topics above and answering questions and brainstorming with you.

What do you think?  I’m really excited about this!  I look forward to working with you!

35% of the way to goal!


I am totally blow away by the outpouring of support and love that I’ve been receiving.  We’re 35% of the way to goal in just 5 days.  I’ve been moved to tears more than once.  These donations are going to help keep Suncatcher Craft Eyes financially stable through this holiday season, allowing me to keep in stock all the craft eye sizes you all need for your upcoming projects.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

If you would like to donate or help get the word out about this campaign, simply click the link above to go to my GoFundMe page.  You’ll find information there about how to donate and the thank you gifts available as well as links to share on social media, which really helps a lot.

I hope you have a wonderful day!



It’s been a while, but I’m back!

I had a run-in with a new nightgown and ended up with a horrible chemical burn.  Live and learn  – always wash new clothes before wearing them.  So yeah, this burn is finally almost healed 2 months later.  It’s been 2 months of awful pain and itching and frustration because I haven’t been able to do much every day other than fill orders and nap.  Took me back to my fibromyalgia days.  Ugh.

On a positive note, I’m almost back to normal and I’m so thankful.  I’ve gained a new respect for the time I have in a day and the importance of rest.

Now that I’m almost back to my old self, I’m starting Good Morning Shout Out on my Facebook page,

Every morning I’ll shout out a crafty business on Facebook.  To get a shout out, send me a Facebook message with your Facebook/Etsy/website link.  Only craft-related businesses please.  I know some of you don’t use Facebook, but that’s the only social media I can keep up with these days.  I’ll try to branch out more soon.

Happy crafting!
