I held the pen when I wrote 'Uncle Tom's Cabin;' God dictated. Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.

Hooray!

 

I picked up the card proofs today from the printer.

They're just a little taller than business cards.

I should get all 1,400 on Friday. Of course, I've gotten cards from the printer before, but Chuck, the sales guy, made the comment today for the first time that he finds my work very emotive and that he wants to buy my cards.

That's the first time that a guy has made a move to buy my cards. Could it be?

When I first started my cards, I knew that 95% of all card buyers are women, which to me spoke of the opportunity that men present if I can find a way to tap into the market. These cards, small (heck, even tiny), don't intimidate, where my big cards do.

I get them home and my son, Aaron, says, "These are the perfect size for little kids. Like for party invitations."

Tamara and I spent part of the evening talking about packaging and marketing. She, being a most excellent seamstress, has some ideas that she wants to try. You go girl. Not my bailiwick.

I just love this card business. It's fun... it feels like I'm headed in the right direction.

ETC: The reaction I'm getting is good enough that I've created and ordered seven other designs, based on my work of course.

Wow party invitations. Way to go Aaron!! This has become so much more than you intended in the beginning, reaching out to markets that you had initially not even thought of tapping. Hats off to you!
