Welcome to my world behind the scenes as I attempt to run a business with no idea what I am doing. I Love comments/ advice/opinions or just a quick G'day so please talk to me. I adore hearing/learning/chatting with you all so every comment is most welcome.!
Conflict-free is a product that can certify that it wasn't obtained through the use of violence. Fair trade is a system of trade where the workers receive a living wage for the goods they produce. Carbon-neutral is when greenhouse gas created during an item's production is then mitigated by planting trees. Think about giving back what you take. Upcycled is taking disposable items and transforming them into something of greater use and value. Aluminum and glass, for example, can usually be upcycled into the same quality of aluminum and glass as the original products. Post-consumerwaste products are used by one consumer, recycled and remade into another product. Think paper that has been recycled into new paper Source: Craig Minowa and the Sustainability Dictionary
With all of my spare time I seem to be filling it up with more things to do.
Yesterday I went to the Caribbean Gardens to obtain information on setting up a stall there.
I thought it might be a good way for me to move some Habi stock since I am taking so long setting up my online store.
And why has it taken me so long to set up my online store?
Because I cannot edit professional product photos. I use Gimp and Paint.net because they are free but finding tutorials for exactly what you want to do with these is like trying to catch a goldfish with one finger.
So off to eBay I go. Spending more money. UNLESS By chance an awesome photo editing wizz stops by that uses gimp or paint.net and tells me where there is a good tutorial without pointing me to messy forums that take hours to wade through.
So there is my dilemma. Its only a small issue, causing a major problem. Here's hoping a magic photo fairy can wave a wand and make me understand this stuff.
I get to stay home today YAY!
Have a fab day girls!
I will actually get time to play "My Creative Space" and hopefully catch up on some vital blog reads.
