In one of the youtube videos that I watched, the crafter mentioned that it is easier to make cards using an assembly line technique.
One day, I would cut the papers. The next day, I would stamp the sentiments and images. The third day, I would color the images. On the fourth, I would cut everything out. And on the last day, I would stick everything together.
Um, it didn’t quite work that way.
I did spend most of my weekend cutting, stamping and coloring.
Then the work week came and I just didn’t want to craft when mindless TV called.
So now, I have to find some spark of motivation to finish gluing the cards. It is weird, in that assembling the cards takes nearly as much time as prepping the cards.
In other words, the assembly line technique shows that my cards should cost over 30 dollars each to recoup the cost of my time.
Good thing, I’m not in it for the money. I do like the cards and they are nice to look at and better to send. So, I’ll keep on, keeping on. I just have to find the motivation to finish the cards during the week.
Until next time, stay healthy.
