Big Changes and a 'Big' Silhouette Book Announcement

As some of you may know we have lots of exciting changes going behind the scenes at Silhouette School!

For exactly two and a half years, I have been blogging on Silhouette School...growing it from "just" a blog to a small business that includes a blog.  It's been a truly amazing, exciting, and humbling ride...but there's so much more I'd like to do (like finally finish another 'big' book!!!)!  Only problem is I can't do it on my own....and I can't figure out how to clone myself.

For those reasons, I'm thrilled to introduce you all to my new partner - my husband, Bob!  Yup, the guy who asked me to senior prom and 15 years later bought me a Silhouette Portrait for Christmas (and who I can safely assure you never dreamed it would result in him walking away from his longtime career in pharmaceuticals) starts this week! #wishusluck

Bob will be working full time along with me doing a bunch of boring super important stuff behind the scenes!  Don't tell him I said they're boring...he likes strategizing and analytics and financials...I like being crafty and writing Silhouette CAMEO tutorials so I think we're gonna be an awesome team.

If you care to, you can follow our journey blogging professionally as a couple on (named after my infamous office chair). No pressure.

One of our first big projects is to finally release the third full-length book in the Ultimate Silhouette Guide series. Don't kill me when I tell you I've been SLOWLY writing this resource book on running a successful Silhouette business for more than a year now.  OMG it's taking me because I just don't have the time to devote to it...until now!

And in case you're wondering  - 'What does she know about running a small Silhouette business?' - I recently closed my Etsy shop because it became too much to handle along with the blog, but I still sell locally.

I want this book to include everything small Silhouette business owners want to know...and now's your chance to chime in with your wish list!  What do you want to know about running a business based on your Silhouette CAMEO or Portrait (or Curio or Mint)? What do you struggle with when it comes to small business? Where can you use some pointers or advice?

I have a three question survey that I'd LOVE for you to fill out (pretty please)!

As a thank you, I'm giving everyone who participates a free set of small handmade business designs which can be used for stickers or tags!  You'll find a link to download them after you click "submit" COPY And PASTE the link into your Internet browse because for some reason it's not re-directing from the blog post!!  

Note: This post may contain affiliate links. By clicking on them and purchasing products through my links, I receive a small commission. That's what helps fund Silhouette School so I can keep buying new Silhouette-related products to show you how to get the most out of your machine!

Thanks for coming to class today at Silhouette School.  If you like what you see, I'd love for you to pin it!
