We Survived Our First Holiday Season
November and December were busy! Yes, December isn't over yet, but we had our last two shows last weekend and yesterday was pretty much the last day to ship online orders in time for Christmas and Hanukkah.
Its hard to beleive that this business was an idea I had while on vacation in March. Its come so far in such a short time. We've surpasssed 500 kits sold and we have big plans for 2017. We've defintely learned a lot since we started selling kits in August. We've also continued to evolve making changes based on what we've learned. We changed our paint by number kit logo and branding, we've chaged our company logo, we've expanded beyond travel themed kits, we launched paint parties, we made lots of changes to our booth, and we've tweaked our making and packaging process.
This has bascially become a full-time job for me and I could not be happier. I am so thankful to have a supportive business partner (and husband) and such wonderful customers! Yesterday one of our first customers sent me a picture of her completed kits. She painted them to give to her grandchildren for Christmas. I love this idea and I know these little paintings will be something her grandchildren will treasure.
