November came along (5 months after I had launched the Life Binder) and I was packing my bags for Europe. The "cha-ching" sound from the Etsy app on my phone was a part of my daily life now...and life was good. As a single lady with not a lot of expenses, making even $1000 a month in passive income was a game changer. I was able to make better decisions in my business because I was not longer stressed out by money. In fact, I was working less and less, but making more and more.
Definitely an idea but less time consuming to do just one or the other. Also I'm thinking of the confusion for the customer. From what I see some digital download shop owners will offer physical prints but they do it as a "blank" store item customers can buy and then reference the image they want printed so I might do that. Do you sell digital downloads or physical prints?
Artist Notes: Wish your wonderful friend a Happy Birthday and let them know how special their friendship is to you. The card front reads "Just once in a blue moon does a wonderful friend like you come along!" and it is illustrated by a deep blue night sky filled with stars and illuminated by a beautiful blue full moon. A blue moon does not happen often, and it is considered the second full moon to occur in one calendar month. A month with two full moons only happens, on average, once every two-and-a-half years, so saying "Once in a Blue Moon" means "not very often". A blue moon is as special as your forever friend's birthday, and a great way to describe how deeply appreciated your special friendship is. The verse reads: Our friendship has seen so many milestones ... a few marked with tears, but most marked with laughter. And while we may have to count to remember just how long we've been friends, it seems like forever. That's just what it will remain ... forever. Happy Birthday, Forever Friend!

About PatternsbyGwen:  Hi my name is Gwen. I’m a 27 year old who grew up loving all crafts.  I started doing stained glass at age 24 when I moved to a big city and took an intro to stained glass class at the local art center. I was hooked! I have a number of other hobbies that I mean to tie in with stained glass. It captures my imagination like no other medium!
Here and there I shared my Life Binder process on this blog. It truly was the cornerstone of how I was taking 100% responsibility for my life - a life philosophy that this blog is all about. My audience showed a lot of interest in it and I had friends constantly asking me to help them put together their own Life Binders. However, as with anything that we're really good at, I didn't consider turning it into something that other people could buy and use because, well, "it's so easy, anybody can make their own." Hahaha. *Business tip: If you ever find yourself saying that about something that you're good at, please turn it into a product. It could make you a millionaire and make a lot of people's lives better.

A great tip Sarah shared was to encourage independence in smaller children so they can be playing alone and entertained at least for a short time while you do some work. Sarah has been able to achieve her goal of making a part-time income on her own terms with lots of flexibility. Although she tries to continually create new products, she knows that her business was built to allow for flexibility and put her family first.  So Sarah doesn't stress if she can't add new products for a while.  Her business works for her - not the other way around!
