Happy Thanksgiving!!! This year has truly been an amazing year for Silhouette School - and to think we're not even two years old yet. As I reflect on the last 11 months it's hard to believe all that Silhouette School has achieved and all that I have to be thankful for.
From the launch of The Ultimate Silhouette Guide ebook to self publishing the paperback to landing a deal to have the paperback bundled with the CAMEO to speaking at The All Things Silhouette Conference. We've hit milestone after milestone on Silhouette School blog and social media including surpassing 100,000 followers on Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram combined and 7 million page views on the blog.
People ask me all the time why I blog, why I answer all these emails and messages and comments, why I spend months writing books...for me it's more than a job or a paycheck - it's rewarding. I am so thankful I get to help all of you get the most out of a machine and a hobby you spent good money to invest in. I love to see your creative spirits and I love to see all that you're accomplishing with just a little tiny piece of my help in the way of a tutorial. It's not earth shattering or saving lives, but to me it's nice to see you all enjoying something you love! And for that I'm thankful.
I'm also so thankful to have partnered with some amazing companies - ones who've been supporting Silhouette School from day one and newer companies whom I've built valuable relations with over the last year. These are companies I buy from, because I believe in their products, love their customer service and want to share my finds with you! The support for Silhouette School from leading companies in the industry has been truly humbling and opened up opportunities I never would have imagined. I, myself, am a small business owner and I'm happy to partner with others who are doing the same - most far bigger than lil ol' me, but all who've had a crazy idea, gone for it and are left knowing the feeling of true accomplishment and that hard work pays off.
I love to see these companies expanding to meet your demands - it's the same mission I work by: let them lead you. The Rhinestone World is a perfect example of listening to customers and adapting to their requests for starter kits with everything included to get started quickly. The new TRW Crafter Starter Kits are designed to make rhinestones, htv, and vinyl easier - especially for new users. And between you and me, you can grab one of the new Crafter Starter Kits for 20% off on Black Friday!
Again, just a little something to be thankful for!
So as you're sitting around your Thanksgiving table tonight know that I am sitting at mine, thankful for all of you - the loyal Silhouette School readers and partners.
