Impression and presentation

Have you ordered something and have been completely taken in by the product and the packaging? When I was in the fashion business doing the Pret in New York, presentation was key to catching a prospective buyer, and of course having a quality product. I do my fair share of buying, and receiving a product in impressive,creative or pretty packaging adds that extra WOW, creating a distinctive image and lasting impression on your customer. Next time you make a sale, think about the big picture, when your product arrives, is your customer going to be as impressed with your packaging, as with the piece they purchased?

Let it snow, let it snow

The first snowfall is here in Chicago. Driving down the street under the trees is just beautiful, it's like being under a huge white frosty arch. We only have about three inches, but I thought to share a few snowy pictures with everyone. There's a kind of peace that comes with the snow here.

Weekend show

I held a private craft show this past weekend with, Lydia's by design, who had her hand crafted decoupage pieces and toxic ink, with her unique graphic prints. The turn out was not bad, everyone wanted to have a party, which it turned out to be, but "thank goodness", I do have some great friends who really support "all things art related" that purchased lots of Kandi-o designs and Visionary Art Caps! pieces. I'm thinking to do one more before Christmas, or maybe I should throw a party and then sell, hmmmm, lol.
