Another day another set of beads!! I have to tell you all that although I look at Krafty Max Originals my job, I look at it more like a wonderful fun vacation!!! All of you should be able to relate if you are one of us lucky one's that get to create for a living. Many people think that because I 'work from home' I don't actually do anything!! Those that don't understand, probably wont ever, but for others.....
So, I thought I would show what I use to help me keep my business from overwhelming myself.....which, would be easy!! There are a couple of sites that I am a firm believer in - I will share them with you and tell you what they are about!!
Tribber - this site is a wonderful say to share your blog! When you join you become both a leader of a tribe (group) and a you can also become a member of a tribe (group). Once you are a member of the tribe you then share other members blog posts and they share yours. It is a great way to network and also to find wonderful blogs/posts from others.
Hootsuite - this site makes my life possible!! Please do not misunderstand, I bead everyday (just about) and I really do create everything you see, it just isn't always at the time you see it! Because of Hootsuite I am able to post all my 'daily' posts each morning and then check-in throughout the day and comment and make sure all is well. This site makes it possible for me to bead none stop and yet still keep up with all the social media sites I have. The basics are this - you can set-up and post on any/all networks either manually or through bulk uploading (bulk uploading does require a monthly fee). If you are like me and have many different sites and lots of things to post - this site is WONDERFUL to use!!
Tomorrow I will show you my normal schedule throughout the day. It is my hope that this helps those that need it understand more of what sites/tricks can help them get started. Also I would like for others to understand what 'working from home' really means....it's not all bonbons and hot toddies!!
Yesterday I was able to finish, photograph and list this bracelet... what do you think?? Do you think it looks like lace hearts laying on top of the blue??? I will also be selling this pattern (with a couple of small adjustments) later in the week if you would be interested in purchasing just the pattern!!
And here is the 'making of' video if you are interested in watching it!!
And with the finish of one creation I get to start another one!! This one is very unique, and I will save the 'supprise' for the end of the creation....so keep watching...you might be surprised!! Remember to my Fan Page or Google+ page to watch this creation grow throughout the day!!
THERE ARE ONLY A FEW DAYS LEFT TO ENTER!!

Never be to busy to meet someone new.
