When I first started my blog, I had little to no reason to have business cards for my blog. I was blogging for the sole purpose of documenting my craft projects.
As my followers grew and I began to attend more quilt shows as a writer and photographer, I was continuously asked for a business card.
Ray and I decided to be craft up our own business cards!
But having designed them on my iPad,using the Rhonna Design app, and printing them at FedEx, they were not lasting very long in my fellow followers wallets. The ink was rubbing off… And they were just not “real business cards”.
After being quite the hands on helper and Social Media Coordinator at Quilt in a Day, I started getting even more requests for business cards.
I knew I had to upgrade and order real business cards!
I looked into ordering real business cards online, but my goodness, there are SO many designs and fonts and styles to pick from… It was almost overwhelming!
But I designed so many drafts for business card possibilities, sent them out to my amazing group of editing / constructive criticism friends and waited.
Then, out of the blue, a dear friend of mine asked me if he could sponsor me by paying for my business cards!! I was über excited to have my very first sponsor, but even more touched by the fact that it was a dear friend who not only sponsored me because he knew me, but because he sees potential in my work! 💕
So here we are, I have “real” business cards now and I’m more than ready to tackle the world!
Thank you again to all of you who have been reading my work and following my journey in the quilting world!
I hope to meet more and more of you in person at quilting shows and classes!
Toodles for now,
Diana and Ray ❤

What a lovely gesture! I’m in the very new stages of (hopefully) developing my sewing/pattern design into a business, and one of my current questions is how sponsorship works. I see so many “sponsored” blogs, with give-aways, etc. and I’m always curious to know the arrangements. Sponsorship by paying for something like business cards never occurred to me. Congratulations, and thank you for sharing your journey!
Well done, you’ve earned it !
