September Meetup Goals

Seriously??? The summer is OVER??

You know, I’m not gonna say much about how the time has just flown by – it’s NO GOOD beating a dead horse! My best laid plans did not work out – instead I filmed 2 episodes of Quilting Arts TV and did some major home redecorating. Nothing at all to complain about!

And…my next “Ask Candy” post is up over at alamodeSTUFF! Between this new column and my monthly home dec tutorials over at Lillyella (did you see the bamboo flooring tute last Friday?) I’ve really been spreading my wings a bit – woot!

You know, Megan, over at Crafting an MBA, wrote a post today called “Pushing the Flywheel”, which is about building momentum for your business. It couldn’t have come at a better time for me! The publications and TV spots that have happened for me these past few months didn’t just appear out of nowhere, they’re the culmination of years of work coupled with a bit of moxie! When the articles come out and the TV show airs, I’m not gonna have instant crazy time sales. But slowly, I hope to have more people out there interested in my work and an increase in sales would be grand!

Sorry this has all been a bit random tonight – I’ve been up since o’dark o’clock, and I’ve got to get me head together for tomorrow – it’s time for this bag to have it’s 5 minutes of fame!

  1. That bag is wonderful and I’m glad everything is moving forward for you! 🙂 Good luck in September, and I love the new look on the blog!

  2. You’re gonna be Famous! I can’t wait to see you in PBS; it makes me giddy thinking about it, so I can’t imagine what you’re feeling.

    I don’t think I’ve officially gushed enough about your blog makeover. It’s a beaut! And thanks so much for including me in your sidebar. I’m honored.

    And, uh, why isn’t my custom iPad bag on your list for September?

  3. That bag is just a joy! Have a great month and keep up the good work. Just thought I would say too that everytime I read CandiedFabrics I giggle. It is such a bright and wonderful concept!

  4. Go Candy! All your hard work is coming to fruition, and that is just SO cool. When you end up with your own tv show, can we all be in the audience? Seriously! Have a great September Candy, and hope you have some time to sit and savour all the good things that are coming your way…

  5. What a great purse! Wow. you’re a busy bee in September. Good luck with everything. I’m so happy I found you through the Biz Meetup. And I’m super interested in the Sacred Laughter site. Can’t wait to see it!
