Like many teachers, I have been working diligently to get things ready for the fall. Getting the word out that I'm taking new students is always a challenge. What's the most cost effective way? One of the ways I wanted to let those in my town know was to add a sign to the end of my driveway. My husband was so wonderful and made the actual sign. I designed it and painted it so it was super inexpensive! After I got it all done, I discovered that I made it too big for town regulations...Ugh! So, my husband put it up at the studio entrance and we made a new one for the end of the driveway! Within a couple of weeks of putting it up, I have already had several calls!

While I'm still planning to put together some other ideas, this one has proven to be extremely effective! I would love to hear how others are getting the word out and working to get more students for September!

What a beautiful sign and a great idea!! Someday when I'm no longer living in an apartment, I am going to have to make something similar. =)

Thank you, Joy! It took a great deal of work, but SO worth it! Whenever you are able to make one for your own studio, please share it with us!
