In the same upping-your-online-game spirit as last week's "Craft Blog Tune-up" course giveaway from Sister Diane of Craftypod, this week we're giving away two books on how to turn your crafting passion into a business. The two titles are Kari Chapin's Handmade Marketplace and Meg Mateo Ilasco's Craft, Inc.(Revised Edition). Both include tips on using social media to connect with your community and get the word out, advice on how to price your products, pay yourself, and keep your own books, and plenty of interviews with people who have done it successfully before. Between these books, a craft blog tune-up, and pointers on how to photograph your fabrics and the beautiful things you make from them, this could be your year to make your creative passion your job!
To enter the drawing for these books, please comment below or on the corresponding Facebook post. Entries close next Tuesday, 2/13 at 7pm EST, and we'll announce the winner next week. Good luck, all! This giveaway is now closed. We'll announce a winner shortly!
Congratulations goes out to Stephanie Scigliano, the winner of last week's "Craft Blog Tune-up" course. We'll be putting her in touch with Sister Diane shortly to get started on her blog sprucing!
