An iron? What?
This is where I seem to do my best thinking. Or when I'm sewing tutus. And apparently this quiet time is really good for me and my business. It gets the creative juices flowing and that is always a good thing in the competitive handmade business market.
Just yesterday a good friend sent me a frantic chat that a new business has completely copied her products, photo layouts and business model. She was sick to her stomach over it and I completely understand. I guess some crafters haven't taken the time to daydream and get their own creative juices flowing so that their designs are uniquely their own.
That is why I am a big fan of daydreaming. Just ask all of my school teachers from kindergarten through college.

The next time you find yourself staring off into space and think you are "wasting time", forget that thought - you are working to build your business, one daydream at a time.
P.S. - I have heard from some really awesome moms in business and can't wait to share their shops with you in the next few days!
