So, a couple of years ago, I drew my friend's name. I knew just what I would get her for one of her "final" gifts. (See, we get little gifts for the first 4 days, you know, surprise them a little each day, make them smile, and then the last day when we have our staff breakfast, we give the "Big" gift, the gift that makes it all worth while.)
Anyway, she is a reading aide, so I knew she would use this item I was going to make her when she gave tests, etc.
Now, this one I will show you, is not the one I made her, this is the one I made for myself....which started the whole thing.
You see, teachers talk, and some of them liked what I made my friend, so they started placing their orders, for themselves, and for friends.
This is my dilemma. I LIKE making these, I like it ALOT. I am thinking about creating an Etsy store to sell these and cute boxes, etc. This is where I need your input.
This is the top of my clipboard with all the CUTE ribbons that make me swoon when I pass them in the aisle at Hobby Lobby.
This is the back.
And this is the front.
My daughter is constantly asking me, "Mom, why did you put an i on the front of your board? Your name starts with an "L". I know dearest, it's a lowercase L." It's what I had, deal with it.
Anyway, all the boards I've made so far are custom. So, what do you think. I'm on the fence and need some feedback. I know there are a lot of people on Etsy that sell clipboards. Should I be one of them?
Help out a soul just searching.....
