Quick updates

So, it has been a pretty exciting week or two - I'm going to be holding my first "class" in my home the 2nd week of March, and it looks like there will be more opportunities for those in the future as well.  The rest of the week has been me finally taking myself to task to get my little shop and things set up.  Mundane, but necessary things like creating a business card, ordering some packaging materials - etc.  But it's all still exciting because it means I'm actually not "talking about" getting go anymore but actually doing it! 

I know the site here still needs some prettying up - and my Etsy shop isn't opened quite yet - but I'm getting there.  Will try to post some pictures of the kits and from the class before the end of the month.  And hopefully finish up adding some things to my blog here as well.

My First Swap

So I've been playing around with getting this site and my little "side business" of Whimsical DeeSigns going for about a year now, and am finally starting to get going.  (I guess you could say I'm a bit of procrastinator - lol!)

Anyway, as a part of getting things moving forward, I decided to take the plunge and participate in my first ever swap.  Tmika of "Scrap Da World" hosted a really adorable and unique swap of Gift Sets that you can read about in detail on her blog or watch the YouTube video she put up about the swap.  Tmika does some really cute and creative things and this looked like a very fun way to "take the plunge". (Thanks for hosting this Tmika).
