Time to Catch up!

I haven’t blogged in more then a year. I have thought about it a few times but haven’t followed through. I’m not sure why I quit blogging but I am going to attempt a return and blog once a month. In my very last post I wrote that I was going to create 100 Bottles of Hope that didn't happen. Instead I started creating buttons with polymer clay and posting them on my Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/VanessasClayAdventures As I posted more and more buttons it caught the eye of Tanya from https://www.facebook.com/kleverkrafts4u?fref=ts who happens to live in the same city as I do. She purchased a few buttons and shared my page. Next I was “found” by Allison of https://www.facebook.com/AllisonBarnesCollection?fref=ts . After connecting with both of these women who I can now say are great friends and amazing support. I began to sell buttons slowly and I was enjoying the process of making new buttons and selling them. A few months passed and I was still making buttons and they were selling the same day as I was listing them on my Facebook page. I kept thinking this is amazing but I ‘m sure it will slow down. Things haven’t slowed down at all! Instead I have met many amazing customers and made 100s of buttons over the last year.
With the mind blowing success of my page on Facebook I created a site on Etsy https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/SaylorDesigns?ref=hdr_shop_menu so spread my wings and continue selling my handmade work.  My goal before the end of 2015 is to have a stand alone website with my blog and e-commerce. This is an intimidating and overwhelming idea that will take a whole lot of work to make it happen. I will make sure to let you know when my site is launched. Here is a collage of some recent buttons I have made.
