I know, I know…we’re already a week into July. I’m just a little behind right now because let’s face it, life happens. My son was really sick so we spent more time at doctors’ offices than I spent on my business. Then the internet was out for 5 days. But the main point is, I’m back now! First things first, I’d like to introduce you to www.LuLusYarnArt.com! TaDa! My site is now a .com! In case you couldn’t tell, I am very excited by this step.
Now, on to recapping my June. Despite the rocky end of my month, I was able to complete just about everything that I had on my list for June as outlined in It’s A Wrap-May. I did miss one blog post from my goal, and the website upgrade didn’t happen before July. However, I’m still glad that I accomplished as much as I did. After meeting with the local representatives of the Small Business Administration, it redirected my goals for July. I will say this: if you are in the United States and are trying to run, or are thinking about starting a small business, I highly recommend meeting with the SBA. It was free and the amount and quality of information I received was immensely valuable.
As far as my crochet goals for June, I did get both owl blankets and an American Girl dress completed.
Here are the links for the patterns, the Owl is a paid pattern and the AGD dress is free.
My business goals for July are to apply for an EIN, apply for a retail certificate, find insurance coverage for doing craft shows, get checks for my business account, and to revamp my online store. My blogging goal continues to be to post once a week, hopefully it will happen this month! Finally my crochet goals are to continue working on a graphghan for my son, and to find at least two small, quick projects geared toward moms of young children that I could add to my store. Do you have any small projects that you like to do? Let me know in the comments below!
