Are you wondering how you can go from crafty hobby to professional business?

One way to do this is to create a product line that appears cohesive and united as a whole.

  • how to make decisions when planning your product line – why this color instead of that, why this design instead of that
  • how to create your products in a streamlined and efficient manner
