Calling All Crafters!

Calling all fellow crafters! I’m reading this fantabulous book! I’ve only gotten to page 21, but I just couldn’t wait to share its niftiness with you.

My husband (being the supportive man he is) discovered this “Crafty Superstar” book at the library and put it on hold for me: “Sarah, I found this really neat book for you. It talks about crafts, Etsy, and craft shows. I think you’d really enjoy it.” Ever since I opened this entertaining yet informative book, I’ve had a hard time putting it down. The author’s verbiage is unique, modern and I can’t help from giggling as I read her quips.

Grace Dobush’s “Craft Superstar” is about making crafts on the side, earn extra cash and basically have it all (as you can read on the cover below).  “Whether you’re just starting to explore Etsy or are trying to take your biz to the next level, Crafty Superstar will help you get where you want to go” (p. 9). The chapters encompass the following and beyond: how a crafty crafter will succeed, business basics, tax and legal suggestions, customer service, publicity, craft shows, finding balance in life with your business, resources for supplies, etc.

Some of her suggestions I already have in practice thanks to my background in communication and public relations, but I can’t wait to read this book cover to cover. Oh my, I may hafta put this book on my Christmas list and keep it forever!! {Pssst…did you hear that mom and dad? Mother-in-law? Father-in-law? :-)} I encourage y’all to take a peek at this intriguing book! In the meantime…I’m going to read the chapter on craft shows – because I have one in less than a week!
