The Last Week of 2011

Where has this year gone? It seems like only yesterday that I was starting my journey and nervous on how it would go.  So far, I'm so thrilled that Nana G Creations has come as far as it has in such a short period of time. In 2011 we've accomplished:

  • Completed the set up of 3 Selling Venues for Nana G Creations, with one that I'm going to be closing down due to overload. 
  • Forming and beginning to add product to my new business - Maur Designs by Nana G. This site was created to provide an outlet for my crafty creative side of items not related to babies. Purses, Totes, Accessories, and anything else that I can think of.
  • Began using Facebook advertising  (Wow, that was a stretch for me).
  • Added an additional 10 products to my website.
  • Joined a great organization called "The Artisan Group" who participates in Swag Bag gifting to the stars. So far, I have sent products to Jessica Alba's two daughters, and Hilary Duff for her soon to be little son. I'm also participating in the Swag Bag (my business cards) for the Golden Globe Awards in January, and the Academy Awards in February. I will also be to a gifting for another event coming up in April, 2012, but can't talk about that one yet.  It's going to be exciting though...I'll let you all know what it is when I get the go ahead. For now..mums the word. 
  • Had a new Blog designed. How do you like it?
  • I'm sure there are more, but these are what stand out right now.
Some plans for 2012 at Nana G Creations:

  • Add some exciting new products! I have 4 products that I've been working on in between orders. Some I've posted here just as a show and tell, but haven't been able to list them in the shop. Like these two adorable hand sculptured pillows. 

  • Offer some "Just Because Sales" for no reason.
  • Start a new monthly or weekly Blog featuring a new Artisan's work. Since there are so many people that love to shop "handmade", I thought by letting you see some really talented people's work, would be great. I personally prefer to shop online with a person that comes with a recommendation or that someone else has purchased from before.  I'm excited about this feature, and hope that you will be too.
Thanks for Listening........
