Speaking of babies...
So, last week I introduced The babies of Barnwords! What fun. (I'm easily amused.) And this weekend MY real life baby is here for a short sweet visit. In case you haven't guessed yet...I LOVE when my kids come around. I think it's such a sort of sad reality that they actually grow up and leave ( Hah. kind of kidding) But I really do love seeing who they become as they age. We're always changing and evolving of course. But isn't it so weird to REALLY think about how you spend roughly 18 years, many of those exclusively, with these people and then BOOM they're gone. Anyway, what I don't like is trying to solve and help with all the monetary problems they encounter as young adults. It's such a drag that these smart, young, talented individuals who graduate from college, have to do so with ridiculous debt. AKA student loan hell.
When I make it big with this barnwords stuff... I'm gonna eradicate it all. Until then.... Barnwords babies! This must be it.
Today I introduced Barnwords babies! Its a funny thing, I've been doing signs for a few years now and they have mostly been the same size. My dear friend Lynda suggested doing some small ones (for a smaller price point) and I thought... YES of course! Sometimes someone just has to suggest something...to make you aware of it. I've been thinking of new products, new types of barnwords, for some time now.
I must admit, I was a tad disheartened at the last big show I was in, as I watched hundreds of stenciled signs sell from other vendors. They were nice! I'm not saying anything about the actual product... but I have something different, it's true. It's not everybody's cup of tea, so to speak, but I thought it might be SOMEONE'S cup of tea. lol. I don't stencil and I could never compete with all those lovely vendors anyway. I get my enjoyment from painting (non perfect) lettering. hah.
So I am going to be trying a few new things. Including these babies! They are about 5" x 5" roughly .I'll sell em for $10.00 a piece. I see so much potential... Scrabble type displays of letters spelling words, Address numbers, Tiny signage, 4 packs.... on and on.
Change is good.
Endless thanks and appreciation to all my friends who've encouraged and supported Barnwords!!!
