Not Selling Enough? Think like an Artist and a Crafter

Today I got to thinking that crafters are such awesome people, but most don't like to think of their craft as a business. Some people think that they can either make art (craft) or they can be a business person. The truth is that you can do both.

You don't have to have an Accounting degree to thrive as a crafty business person. I found these books that really helped me (I dont' get anything for recommending them, so you can believe I really loved them). They are written in easy to read formats for people like us who like to do our crafts but not so much the marketing end.

Check these out at the store next time you're in a big bookstore and flip through for good ideas. We have to think of ourselves as business people and not only artists. We can do it! Sell something today that you made!
