  • Mid-year, New start

    It is hard to believe that we are already almost halfway through this much anticipated year after suffering the countless losses and isolation in 2020. As the rules are relaxing and it is looking like I will be going back into the office full time soon, I began reflecting on the extra time I spent at home over the last 15 months. I was wondering if I had squandered it all away. Well, if I looked at the to-do list we've amassed over the years, the house projects to complete, the walls to be painted, the rooms to declutter, the files to sort through, then yes, it would seem like we did not spend our quarantine time wisely. However, when I turned 50 last July (a milestone that was largely uncelebrated due to the pandemic) a switch had flipped in my brain and I really started to see things differently. Instead of dwelling on what I didn't do, I realized that since you cannot change the past, you can try to find glimmers of good or lessons learned that will help you move forward. So, here is my list of ways that I am regrouping and moving forward with less anxiety and more hope for great things to come. Reflect on the small victories As I mentioned, over the years we have amassed a long list of projects to complete around the house, but for one reason or another we just didn't think to do them during this down time. This definitely disappointed me, but as I thought more about the ways we did utilize our time, I saw that we did so many other things that seemed to make more sense in the moment. At the start of the stay at home order, I was very busy making masks and other PPE that people needed. I was sewing until 1 am and then getting up five hours later to start my work day (thankfully from home). Once the requests slowed down, I took some much needed time to relax and enjoy doing nothing. I spent a lot of this time getting caught up on shows I had never watched before, such as Schitt$ Creek, Parks and Recreation, The Office, and of course Tiger King. I cannot say my life is any better for that last one, but it is what it is. In addition to the much needed down-time, there were definitely a lot of things that we did do, but weren't on our original list. Tip: add things to your to-do list even after they are complete. For some reason it makes a huge difference to see what you accomplished even if they weren't official "tasks" to begin with. For us, some of these things included building and stocking a pantry in our basement, which my husband has been talking about for years, but I was always so hesitant about (stay tuned for a full post about this. It is actually one of the things that I am most proud of from this past year). Another project that came up primarily because of the pandemic was gardening. I had always thought about it, but we didn't have the space for a proper garden. With the extra time at home my husband decided to dismantle our son's wooden play structure (which had long sat idle since he is almost a teenager) and he created a raised garden in it's footprint. I still have a lot to learn, but I am excited to see what veggies sprout up and what lessons I can learn along the way. With our stimulus checks, we finally got the new bedroom furniture we've been in desperate need of, but kept putting off. Goodbye to the mismatched pieces that we each brought into the marriage fifteen years ago! This also led me to some great new organizational hacks (many that were learned on Tik Tok) to help keep the space looking neat. Another major accomplishment that wasn't planned was my new website which I created from scratch in January. I hadn't been thinking about making a change, but as I was growing more frustrated with the limitations of my previous webhost, I stumbled across Wix and without much thought I made the change. Sometimes spontaneity pays off, as I am very happy with the new site so far. If you have any comments or tips about the new site, please drop a comment here! Work on Financial Freedom Finances are definitely a stressor for most people. Personally, over the years I have accumulated a significant amount of debt and it always turns into a vicious cycle. After paying down the credit cards each month I am left with little to work with for everyday needs, so I would inevitably have to put more on the credit cards. It seemed unending, and around the holidays last year I knew I had to make some changes. Around this time my company was offering free financial consultations through Fidelity, the company that handles our 401(k). I had always wanted to talk things through with a financial planner, but was honestly too cheap to do it. Having a free resource at hand was a huge help and we came up with a great plan that helped me pay off all of my credit debt and start planning better for the future. The anxiety I used to feel is gone and I find myself being much more careful so I don't go down that same path again. Another part of my strategy is to really look at areas where I thought I was "saving" such as signing up for subscription services. I found that sometimes getting a product auto-delivered each month wasn't worth it, especially when I would build up an accumulation faster than I would use them. I ended up canceling a lot of these items and now I just watch for sales when they are needed. Set Big Goals They don't have to be huge, audacious goals, but they should be something that gets you excited. I don't often set a lot of goals for myself and just let life happen as it may, but after spending a year without any significant ambitions, I felt it was time to have something to look forward to (other than seeing family and friends again). First, I decided it was time to replace my 11 year old vehicle. I am eyeing some type of Jeep, but of course I need something with a lot of room so I can transport my displays and inventory to the craft fairs I hope to start doing again. If anyone has first hand experience with Jeeps, I'd love to hear it. Of course this purchase is definitely going to put my financial planning to the test, so I need to make sure I can afford this without causing me to start using those credit cards again. Next, I am focusing on my career development by registering for the Professional Administrative Certification of Excellence (PACE). This is a certification for administrative professionals to demonstrate their depth of knowledge, expertise, and commitment. I have been an administrative assistant for over 25 years, and I really love what I do, but I also want to be as valuable as possible. It is always good to keep learning and growing. I already have my CAP-OM (Certified Administrative Professional certification with an Organizational Management specialty), so this would be a nice addition to those credentials. Finally, I am working on a marketing plan for Joatmon Creations to help bring in more business. I've linked my website with Facebook, which gives me another sales channel, and eventually I will link it to Instagram as well. I'm also working on some gift basket ideas which will allow me to definitely be a one-stop shop for gift giving needs. I am very excited to put these together in time for the holidays. Practice Self Care Regardless of all these steps I am taking above, it won't matter if I am not taking care of ME. If I find myself getting stressed out, I take a break. Open a good book, paint my nails, take a walk, write in a journal, or even color my hair. Anything to make me feel in control and happy. Setting aside a little "me time" definitely helps me be a better person. Hopefully some of these strategies will help others as we begin the journey through the second half of 2021. Ironically, as I opened my planner to June, these pages really spoke to me. New Day, New Adventures, New Memories, New Moments, New Lessons. What a wonderful way to start the month! I cannot wait to see what this planning page looks like by the time I am done with it! Please share some of your favorite strategies as well!

  • Guest Post: Budget-Friendly Tips for Top-Notch Booth Presentation

    Abby Holt of Craftability.org knows from personal experience that setting up to sell your products at a craft show or vendor fair can be very overwhelming. "From designing your display to pricing and inventory to processing payments, there’s a lot to consider." Lucky for us at Joatmon Creations, she has put together a wonderful list of tips and tricks that can be used as a "starter kit" for selling at these shows. If you participate in any kind of sales event, I hope you find this as useful as I did. Share your own tips and tricks in the comments as well! Image courtesy of Pixabay Budget-Friendly Tips for Top-Notch Booth Presentation Selling your wares and showcasing your craft to the public can sometimes feel pretty clunky, especially if you lack proper display materials. Since there is often some truth in the old stereotype of starving artists, stretching your budget on your booth makes good sense. Thankfully, you can find budget-friendly solutions to create a top-notch, professional presentation. Contemplate Structures Before you go too far, the first thing you need to establish is the bones of your display. Think about how much horizontal surface you need for an effective presentation, whether some of your items will hang, how to protect instruments, and so forth. For instance, will you require lightweight, collapsible shelving? Do you need folding tables? How about some freestanding racks? Make sketches to determine a practical layout for your typical booth to help decide what will go where. Amazon for More Savings Once you narrow things down, look to bigger retailers to find low prices and a broad selection. Most popular retailers have a wide range of items and will ship straight to your door. Plus, you can take advantage of cashback offers so your funds go further. Topping it all off, many products ship for free in just a day or two, so you’ll be ready for upcoming art fairs and events before you know it. Pleasing Aesthetics As someone selling beautiful things, aesthetics are obviously an important part of your presentation. With that in mind, beyond the bones of your booth, think about how you will flesh things out. One suggestion is to add drapes. You can use them to create a more intimate experience for your customers by walling off your work from other vendors and choosing colors and fabrics to compliment your wares. Round things out with coordinating tablecloths to hide table legs, and provide coverage for any materials, storage totes, and extra supplies you take with you. Exhibit Backdrops explains there are multiple ways to hang drapes, from a grommet and hook style to devising a freestanding frame. Think through the materials you need, and make some notes about tools and hardware to piece it together. Stores like Lowe’s offer hardware in all shapes, sizes, and types, so you can pick out everything you need, and if you spend $45 or more, you can save time and gas by having it all shipped to your home at no additional cost. Getting To and From Between your creative materials, finished work, delicate instruments, and display, there is a lot to haul to your events. Think about how you can make things as easy on yourself as possible. Items like drapes, tools, and hardware should be stored conveniently so they are kept together. Storage totes are one suggestion, and, as The Wirecutter points out, are better-designed options that offer protection from the elements. Whatever you decide, you want items to be easy for you to pack and have ready for the next event you attend. Consider whether it would help you to have totes that stack or roll and if you want them to be transparent so you know what’s inside at a glance. To ease your search, consider shopping with a retailer like The Container Store since they specialize in containers of all types. You can save significantly if you join their rewards program since they give a discount on your first order, have ongoing special offers, and will let you know about members-only savings events. It’s a great way to get what you need without going broke. Above Board Even if your handiwork doesn’t provide you with a full-time income, you will still have to pay your self-employment taxes every year. Before you begin selling at shows, it’s best to take care of a few basic business responsibilities. You can outline a business budget, develop an organization system for your financial documents, and structure your business as an LLC in order to take advantage of some welcome tax breaks. Plus, you’ll enjoy asset protection and plenty of flexibility. So how can you establish your creative business as an LLC? Filing your LLC in Massachusetts through an online formation service will make the process much easier! With a proper display, you can show off your wares in the best possible manner. Contemplate what structure your goods and/or instruments require, how to flesh out those bones, ways to cart it all to and from your events, and, above all, staying above board as a business. With a little creativity, you can put together a top-notch, professional presentation. Abby created Craftabilityto inspire you to put your own crafting abilities to good use, whether it’s painting, jewelry-making, quilting, or calligraphy. Joatmon Creations provides a variety of handcrafted accessories and gifts to fit your needs. You are bound to find something for yourself or a friend when you check out our shop.
