this particular sketch is from mft stamps - i love how each week they have both a sketch and a color challenge. speaking of goals for next year as i mentioned in yesterday's post, i am looking forward to participating in more challenges next year - i really enjoy the way that they get me thinking outside the box! for this one, i decided to interpret the vertical lines near the bottom as strips of patterned paper and to turn the card sideways - so you know i had to incorporate a rainbow in one way or another!

i saw this graphic on instagram today and i shared it in my stories - it's absolutely so true. i know i still have a lot to learn about this business and i spend so much time researching and planning and i'm amazed at how intricate the algorithms are for social media - but these few things, these are so accurate. it might not seem like you're doing much, but sharing, hearting, commenting and saving posts does so much to help [my] exposure. the more people that can find me or hear how awesome you think i am, the better!

i'll be adding this card, [along with a few others that i managed to create today], into the online shop tomorrow. i've still got a few other surprises to share and i'm super jazzed about the online events for both the virtual holiday makers market as well as the shop holiday handmade. it's such a good feeling to support small businesses and i can't wait to see what everyone else has in store!

i hope that if you're lucky enough to have a short work week this week that it goes smoothly - i only know part of my schedule so far, but at least i'll get thursday off as it's one of the two days a year the restaurant is closed. i'm looking forward to massive amounts of carbs in the form of potatoes, corn casserole, stuffing and pie. what fun plans do you have for the holiday? are you social distancing? celebrating in a small group? i can't wait to hear and see details throughout the week - and don't forget i'll be sharing lots of details and updates here, as well as on facebook and instagram.
