Being productive

I decided last Sunday that I would have a productive week this week.  Since business has been slow because of this goofy economy, I have found myself spending more time on the computer than I should.  I can tell myself that I am researching new products for my embroidery business or that I need to update the church website, etc.   The reality is, I am bored.

One afternoon while on Facebook, I saw a picture of carved birdhouses that were made by Jerry's cousin, Randy.  Randy is an artist.  He paints, he carves and draws.  Aren't they pretty?

Within thirty minutes, I had several requests for his phone number and my Facebook friends were wanting to order birdhouses from him!  Just because I posted his photo, he was getting orders.  Really.

I decided that the concept might work for me.  I posted some of my photos of my finished projects and I started taking orders!  I sold enough stuff within two days to buy our weekly groceries!  

Amazing, isn't it.  You advertise, you get orders.  Simple.  Why didn't I think of this sooner?
Check out my Facebook page, Leabek Creations or my website:  I will be happy to work with you on special orders.
