Stampin’ Tracy’s Blog

Posts Tagged ‘classes

Just a short blog tonight… I’ve got a husband awaiting my company at our new big screen TV. 🙂

Tonight I placed my very first SU! order as a demo. I am hosting a class on Nov. 14 and 15 to make Christmas cards, and I had to order all that goodies. I’m so nervous about it now! Eep! The order was (of course) more than I wanted it to be, as since I’m new to demoing, I had to order paper, ribbon, brads, blah, blah blah because I don’t have any. So, my guests are getting quite the bargain! I had to pay $150 of my own money to order enough supplies. Eep! (and the Season of Friendship set, which I’ve been drooling over for a month now!)

I keep telling myself it will all work out in the end. I have ELEVEN people coming to my very first class! And 4 or 5 of them are people I don’t know…. friends of friends. So I think the potential is definitely there for a good customer base. If I can book a show or two from this class….. it will totally wipe out the $150 in supplies I had to buy!

Oh! I’ve made my quarterly minimum with this class — and will reach commissionable sales for the month of November. So it can’t be THAT bad, right? And hubby didn’t get too mad when I told him the “overs.”

When I get the stuff and make my samples, I will definitely post pictures. (I also hope to post pictures tomorrow of what I’m working on in the moment. Today got too busy!)
