This week...

Wow, it's almost the weekend again already! The weeks sure do go fast. And what do I have to show for it? Well, I've mainly been just pottering around doing bits and pieces I guess...

Tuesday morning I had my first 'real' Crafty Kids demo with the ladies from church. I was really nervous and stuffed up a few times (like not knowing prices or pages etc) but I guess that all comes with practice. I also managed to make more sales this time with only 3 buyers than my launch, so that's good. Some more free products for boosting my kit, and also as supplies for upcoming workshops that I hope I get people to come to!

I have also got myself a referral customer so that's exciting! A lady has moved up from Sydney and wants a consultant and to do workshops and she only lives around the corner apparently! Only thing is, she wants to do a glass painting workshop and I've never done it in my life! But my team leader said she can come and do the class and I can be a participant, and I will get the sales and further bookings. Sounds OK to me, coz I would like to see how she teaches anyway - always interesting to see how each person does it!

Greg and I had a night to ourselves Tuesday night. Jaidyn went for a sleep-over at Mum's so we made the most of it and got some chinese take-away and a DVD. We went for a drive up to the Mt Gravatt lookout to eat our dinner, which was something different for us, so nice. We then came home and watched 'Sahara'... not too bad. I do like Matthew McConaghy (sp!?)...

I had a Crafty Kids training day on Wednesday morning. Got to meet the owners from South Australia and just spend some time focussing on my business. We also got a freebie kit of the new September promotion. It's a tab scrapbook that you get for free when spending $60, so I'll have fun finishing that off and it will be good for upcoming demos hopefully. After the conference, I met Mum and Jaidyn across at the museum. We went to see the new exhibition on predators. Jai really loves the museum!

Been working on my class samples for October too. I have 2 of my 3 classes in the first week so I need to get these finished for this weekend really. Have almost finished one - just need some little photos (and it will be a Chrissie pressie for Greg's mum) and need to finish off my frames class. So might do some of that tonight.

Actually, tonight I really need to do up my job applications. A couple that I have been meaning to do for almost a week! Yikes. Better get those out of the way and sent off! They are for teaching jobs for next year.

Well, I'm off to shower Jaidyn, then I suppose I better clean the loungeroom. I still have bits and pieces from my demo out everywhere... at least Greg is used to my mess... lol...

Ciao, Nat xx

I've only read your blog a couple of times and already see your a hard worker and are putting in the effort for your new business. I wish you lots of luck and hope it all goes smoothly. Best wishes for lots of success in the future.

Don't be worried about stuffing up a couple of times, it is all very normal when your learning something new. We are only human after all and we all make stuff ups now and then.

Best of luck with your job applications.
