Random thought...

as I'm busy cutting out Valentine tickets. :) Would it be totally stupid for me to have a design team?? I don't mean like a ton of people. But maybe like 2 people...to just have some layouts to showcase some of my things?? I'm SO not trying to make myself important or be the bomb...but honestly I would LOVE to have some examples up of how cool they look on actual layouts and just not photographed. The layout that Laura Vegas created with my calendar raffle tickets...that was AWESOME to show that...I think it would be great and sometimes I feel like all I do is try to promote myself when I use them in my own layouts (I know..that probably sounds really silly!!) I would love to hear some input...give me your thoughts...even if you are telling me that it's a totally dumb idea!!

And your input DOES count for the giveaway!! lol

i totally just happened upon your blog from createmykeepsake.com. i love your tags!!! i added your esty store to my favs and will be making a purchase soon!

i think having other people (even if it is just two) to showcase your product on your layouts would be great. since we all have our own styles it can show multiple ways to use your products. maybe even ways you had never thought about. it can also help your customers think of new ways to use your products!!!

I think it's a great idea, Jenn! Why not? You could always try a bunch of GDT spots. Ask a couple of people each month or so to do some pages with your stuff. That way, you could have lots of different input. I think lots of people would do some pages for some of your goodies! ;)

Oh, I would totally try out for your DT, I'd love the chance to work with your cool products! I think getting your product out there is key!!!

Jenn I love your new calendar tickets!! DT never hurts. Great way to get the word out more and who wouldn't love to work with you wonderful items:)

Ooh I am loving your tags - they are gorgeous :o)
I just saw your post over on CMK and followed from there!
I think a DT would be a great way of getting your products seen more.
Good luck with whatever you decide xxx

What's wrong with having a few girls showcasing what everyone can do with your fab tickets? You go girl and get yourself a team!

I love your tickets and calendar tags. Can't wait to go and check out your store. As for a DT, sounds like a good idea to me. Audrey's idea of having some people each month using them and posting projects would probably get you lots of exposure. Good luck! :)

Jenn, I think its a great idea to promote your adorable tickets by having a design team. There is nothing wrong with promoting yourself anyway, you are a talented lady and I don't look at it like you are promoting yourself to say "hey look at me" but rather that you are KIND enough to share ideas with the rest of us, which I APPRECIATE from anyone who does the same...about those who leave negative comments, it is sad that people don't remember what their mothers taught them, if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all...I think that's sound advice for us all, not to say we should "make up" nice stuff to say but rather just shut your pie holes people if you can't say truthfully positive comments to others:O) Sorry if that is perceived as mean, but hey, I am so tired of negativity anywhere and everywhere anymore especially on the internet. Just my 2 cents...Lisa in Texas

I think that sounds like a great idea!

Ok, I'm biased...but I think your stuff rocks and it should be publicized. You need to do whatever you think seems best for your business. And I think it's a great idea!

I love "lurking" on your etsy shop and seeing your cute tags and items. A DT definetely wouldn't hurt. I know there are LOTS of people out there that would try out:) Good luck and I will stay posted!!

Hey Jenn,

My imput is that I think your stuff is cute and you should promote it. If you want me to do a page or more I have gotten over slump and would love to try it out. I would buy them and then send you the page to show. It's up to you. E-mail me if you want me to help you out. soutofline3@yahoo.com
