 I started to look at where cryptocurrency is accepted and was intrigued when I saw Etsy was included.  With so many hand knit items on Etsy, I'm looking for ways to make my own shop stand out.  Now I am going to look into accepting Bitcoin as a payment option.  I will let y'all know how it goes.If you are still not sure about crypto, why not just learn a bit more?

Billy Graham--Thank You!
Kimberly Schimmel | February, 24 2018 | Comments Comments (0)
 In North Carolina, USA, we are grieving the passing of Billy Graham as a family.  From Black Mountain and Asheville to Charlotte, people lined the roads just to show respect to Billy's motorcade. (He insisted everyone call him Billy.)  His simple message never changed, because it was always just the gospel.  There seems to be no end to the people wanting to talk about how he t...

Always be Learning
Kimberly Schimmel | February, 18 2018 | Comments Comments (0)
Never think you know enough--there is always something new to learn. People have been knitting for centuries upon centuries, yet I still find "new" techniques.One of my favorite knitters, the late Elizabeth Zimmerman, called her knitting epiphanies "unventing" rather than inventing. When she found a new way of doing things, she assumed others had also seen it--it was just waiting there for her to ...
Time for Yourself
Kimberly Schimmel | February, 14 2018 | Comments Comments (0)
Yes, we all spend time building our businesses and feel like we need to work more and harder all the time.  Sometimes it is good, though, to take an hour or even a day to do something personal.  Today I spent an hour knitting purely for myself--not to design a pattern or sell on Etsy, but just a pretty thing to wear.  It was refreshing.By the way, did anyone else see the Finland Oly...

Some weeks are better than others. Remember, those who succeed are those who do not quit.  Of course, make sure the things you are doing are good things which will eventually bear fruit.  Make adjustments if   appropriate, but otherwise just keep working the business and doing that Plus One every day. Just one more thing each day. Keep working!...
Thoughts on TEs
Kimberly Schimmel | February, 07 2018 | Comments Comments (0)
I first tried TEs around 2004 when I stupidly paid money to start an Amazon affiliate and then mindlessly surfed for hours to get a few views for my generic banners that generated nothing for me.  Thankfully, "I got better" (nod to Monty Python.)Once my children were  older, I took time to learn about marketing and realized the Internet was a big place and people were not out looking for...

Business networkers could learn a bit from homeschoolers.Homeschooling is popular in North Carolina and has been for decades.  If you want to see networking in action, hang out with some homeschoolers.  We have Facebook groups, cooperatives offering enrichment classes, used book trade networks, discussion forums for different curriculum options, big annual conferences with book fairs---a...
Buried in Work--Life is Good!

This is the time of year when knitters and spinners get ready for big shows.  They are hiring sample knitters (like me) and building displays and generally going crazy.  The busy season reminds us not to complain during that lull in midsummer or between Christmas and January.By the way, you can check out some of my knitting from the past year at my FiberFrau Blog....
Just Fun Work!

Sometimes a job is a real joy.  Right now I have my annual box of handspun yarn from a nice lady who has sheep of various colors.  Each hank of undyed yarn has a tag with the name of the sheep , and I knit 4x4 sample squares form each, then send them back to her.I feel as if I know her sheep--even have my favorites, including the one with the darkest chocolate-colored wool.These fun jobs...
Multiply Yourself
Kimberly Schimmel | January, 26 2018 | Comments Comments (0)
As a mother of six, there were times when the children were all young that I felt I needed 2 or 3 of me just to keep up.  Even now, with almost all of them grown, I tend to get myself into projects that are too big.Example: I love to knit and sew. I'm really fast, too. But I have to be careful about saying "yes" to projects for profit.  No matter how fast I am, I will never be able to cr...
Find Your Tribe!

Have you ever met a stranger, chatted for a while, then thought to yourself, "Yes! This is one of my people!"? That's what happens when you find your tribe. When I joined my CTP team, for example, I quickly learned that Renee (Mama, as in Pistol-Packing) and several other team members were more than teammates--they were part of my tribe and I had found them! (I refer to my geek tribe, not my ...
Your Handmade Business?
Kimberly Schimmel | January, 23 2018 | Comments Comments (0)
Think carefully about selling handmade items as a business.  Too many people undervalue their time.  Think about the hourly wage you want to make--after expenses for supplies, equipment, and advertising.  The general public will want to buy your items for almost nothing--but you can't sell them for nothing!  Here are some tips for beginners:1. Find a few items--or just one--you...
