The Superbowl needs ME!

Posted by on Aug 2, 2013 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

I am on another quest. Marketing material for companies and promoting your company is expensive. I can afford the graphic design element to it because that’s what I do! The distribution is the part that cost a pretty penny in my case. I subscribe to receive entrepreneur emails and newsletters. Today was a golden treat in that there was an opportunity for me to enter my business to receive a free commercial during the Superbowl…WOW! What a great marketing opportunity. The approximate cost for Intuit (who is sponsoring this opportunity) is about $25 million. An amount of money I hope to one day see.

On days were I make it in bed, but still feel accomplished means I’m winning!

Chances are there are a list of people that are admiring you and thinking about what you mean to them. Pull positive energy from people that not only are successful, but comfortable with sharing the struggles of how they got there.

DIY – Push Pin Board

This is a recycled project. I originally made this oversized piece with the damask pattern for the headboard over the platform bed I also “Did Myself”. When I moved locations from one home to the next, I decided that I no longer wanted it to function as my headboard, but rather an oversized push pin board to display photographs that I was given by family and friends or photographs I’d taken myself. The decorative nails and ribbon was added after its use as a headboard to give it the support needed to hold...
