This is me snagging an extra button pin from the bag of them that Etsy had brought along.
I had a wonderful time at the Conference of Creative Entrepreneurs this past weekend. I met people in person whom I’ve known online for years, I learned a lot (outsourcing is every bit as difficult as I suspected!), I was recorded (live, onstage, eep) for a podcast (I’ll let you know when it’s available to listen to), and it all felt more like a gathering than a series of classes. Bravo to the organizers. Rumor is that CCE will be in San Francisco next year and if you’re somebody who has or wants a small business in the arts/crafts realm I can highly recommend attending. Also, the sponsors for the conference were particularly well matched, I learned about a bunch of services and resources I’ll be using. (I don’t mean to sound like a shill, it’s all true, and I also really want CCE to succeed and grow. So if you have a product you’d like artists and crafters with websites and Twitter accounts to know about, look into being a CCE sponsor next year.)
