Make Fabric Bracelets with Scraps

Make Fabric Bracelets with Scraps

Dig up some fabric scraps and then head over to your local craft store to pick up some basic jewelry findings. You'll also need some needle nose pliers and Fray Check.Here's a quick and simple project to share with you today! Assuming you already have fabric/fusible interfacing/thread/etc it is also very inexpensive.

Printing company

Authored by Greg Fletcher

Living in the city, I have discovered many ways to make money. I have worked in a restaurant and a hospital as well as in real estate and computers. My most recent attempt to be successful has been in the printing business. I started my own printing company when I saw the need for paper products such as brochures and signs. When I first began in this business, I targeted schools and churches, then went to other small businesses. I realized that in order to be successful, I needed to get an affordable communications provider. I decided to get T1 Manhattan in my building and have been very pleased with it. I hope that this business will be more successful than previous businesses I have been involved with. The economy right now is not favorable to many businesses. However, it seems as if there is always a need for printing in any business, whether it is for flyers, bulletins, business cards, or signs. I have even looked into making banners for schools and sports teams. The opportunities in this business are endless.

Small Business

Contribution by Stevie Kirby

I went to www.smallbusiness.xo.com at the advice of my accountant when I was first starting my business and I’m glad I did. I feel like I’ve got a lot more to do but at least I’m set up when it comes to having all the tech stuff for the business taken care of. What I really need to do is set up a website and get my business cards printed – there are definitely times when I feel like I don’t know how to market myself. I think it’s important to know all sides of the business but you know, at the end of the day I think it’s crucial to get your name out there so people know about you and know how to refer you if someone THEY know needs your services. I have a lot to learn when it comes to being a small business owner but you know, that’s the fun of it. I’m learning as I go because that’s the only way I know how to do it! I love being the boss.

Almost time for a new computer!

You know the lifespan of a computer is about 5 years they say, between programs and software going obsolete, to crashes due to who knows what, not to mention viruses, apps that inject all kinds of nasties, etc out there, it is like a drive by shooting sometimes.

My pc has very fast connections, but lately has slowed down to a crawl. I have looked at the new models of pc's, everything from Sony brands to an
asus laptop and there are some pretty good bargains out there. Hopefully it will be a painless search lol!

One thing is for sure, I was lucky enough to get one of the last XP's when I got this one, I will NOT be buying any product with the name Vista on it.
If you all have any suggestions or advice, please do make a comment on this subject.

The Bakery Truck

Thanks for the post, Vernon Lowe

Waiting tables was getting really old, but I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with my life other than be in food. I’d always been really good at baking, so I started exploring the idea of starting a bakery truck, you know, like those food trucks that are all the rage right now? The concept was that my truck would be like a moving bake sale…who doesn’t love cookies and cupcakes? To get started, I knew I needed to buy a domain name and get a website up so my brother Ken volunteered to help me with all the computer stuff. I also had to get a payment system together and also find a truck. That would be a pretty crucial part of the business! I found the perfect, shiny truck at a nearby used car lot and a few thousand dollars later, it was mine. One hand painted sign and a few dozen pounds of baked goods and I was ready to roll! Business has been booming and I’d say that my bakery truck was a raving success!
