OK, ladies! This is where "the rubber meets the road". We've talked all about budgeting, but now we need to actually face ourselves and think about where we are and where we're going. Here is a questionnaire for you to help you make some decisions about your stamping habits - or at least to help you think through them. I have to sit down with it this afternoon, too. I've thought through it, but not written my thoughts down on paper, and just now I'm struggling with a whole GOB of purchases that I'd like to make. I think this will help me.
So here you are!!
STAMPING ON A BUDGET QUESTIONNAIRE...
How much do I have available to spend each month or quarter? Will this amount harm my family?
Will I have any extra at certain times of the year?
Are there certain sales or promotions that I would like to save for? (i.e. the new catalog, double hostess benefits, a show you're going to host)
Do I have the basics?
What do I currently need that I use regularly? (adhesive, white ribbon, neutral cardstock, envelopes, etc.)
Are there images I could trade for to extend my stamping dollars?
Which sets & accessories do I have that make me smile? Which ones frustrate me?
What is my Stamping Purpose Statement?
Does the time I spend reflect that purpose, or am I out of balance?
Do I *send* the cards I make?
In this season of life, how can I best find time for my hobby?
Are my supplies organized? How can I improve in this area?
What is my stamping style?
Do I use my stash?
How can I bless others with my stamping?
Hope to hear from you soon!
