My HUGE Project!

As most of you know, I have started my own business recently-The Thrifty Trendsetter! Well, I have talked A LOT about the huge project that I have been working on recently-in fact, it's been so huge, I haven't had a chance to post to this blog this week! :( I have decided to finally share with you a little bit about this project. I have been working with the nicest lady, we'll call her "J", who has been in the process of opening up an online store which sells an array of products to sororities. She hired me to make magnetic message boards, magnets, and photo frames for each of the ELEVEN sororities at a university here in Oklahoma!

As you can imagine, this is a really big undertaking. 2000 mail-outs were sent out advertising my products, very aggressive marketing has been done throughout the city of the university, and now, today is the day that all of the girls who are rushing arrive on campus, and "J" has a booth set up that the girls must pass to get to the sorority houses! The orders could start coming in as early as tonight! I am both excited and nervous!

A lot of people keep telling me that they don't know how I am going to get everything completed if I get a lot of orders, but I have been trying to brush off those comments. The way I see it, this is a really huge opportunity! After all, I just officially started my business about a month ago, and I have already been discovered and have people buying my products! Some people try their entire lives to get discovered by doing some sort of craft, and I wasn't really even trying and this fell into my lap! I feel completely blessed that I have been given this opportunity!

And now, I am sure that you have been wondering what my products look like! I am going to give you a peek at some of them! Enjoy!

Well...I hope you have enjoyed taking a look at some of my products! If you would like for me to create a magnetic board or picture frame for you, you can email your request to, and I would be happy to work with you! Also, as always, your comments are greatly appreciated! Have a wonderful weekend!

Ignore anyone who gives you negative comments. You CAN accomplish ANYTHING you set your mind to doing.

What do you think Benjamin Franklin would say to you?

Ok then, get ready to be successful.

If you need another pep talk, give me a shout! I'll tell you how I went from 0 customers to 1,500 with a very lucrative career at home just like you are starting. Just keep doing what you are doing and honestly, ignore the negativism. You will succeed if you want to succeed.
