I’ve been working for the past several months on designs for my mandalas. I have decided that I also want to make stickers to sell on Etsy. That was my original plan, but then I got sidetracked by how much fun I was having with the mandalas.
I spent some time recently using my Silhouette cutting machine to make some craft kits for a preschool classroom. It was so much fun, I may have to find other kits to make and sell!
Here’s the craft kit I made – they were doing a monster design for ‘M’ week, so I used my machine to cut out all the circles and horns for the monsters. Enough for 40+ kids done in about 15 minutes. It would have taken me all weekend to cut these by hand, not to mention they wouldn’t have been true circles.
My husband is getting in on the action, too. He is working with vinyl rather than paper, and he’s been making vinyl decals for cars. He made some for his car and his colleagues saw the decals and asked if he could make some designs for them.
He’s spent the last two weekends working on the computer, designing decals, and having a blast. He told me yesterday that he really wants to invest some time into seeing if he can turn it into a viable small business.
Crossing my fingers that he can and we can turn this into a family business. 🙂 Now to get busy working on my own designs!
