Did you make a resolution to make money from your crafting? Here's one way.

Today is a good landmark day to review those new year resolutions you made back in January and see how much progress you've made. I'm sure that there will be some of you out there that made a new year's resolution to try and make some money from your crafting - or at least to make it pay for itself this year. Have you made a start yet? If you have, then ... Congratulations. It's never easy to take the first steps and you're ahead of the game. If you haven't, then ... don't beat yourself up but if you still think that it's worth doing, then recommit yourself to achieving your goal.

I'll do my best to help you by posting some tips and ideas that I use or that I see other's using successfully. This isn't the main focus of this blog but I'll be adding to this series of Business Tips and Ideas every so often so if this is something that you're interested in then please bookmark my blog, join as a follower or add a feed so that you can come back and pick up the information (hopefully you'll also stop by for a little crafting inspiration too).

The obvious way of making money from craft is to sell your creations and I will cover this in future posts. Another way is to become a UK Stampin' Up! demonstrator yourself and show people how to craft. This is a great way to do it because you get to introduce others to the fun of crafting.
