very good point! You could say all of what everyone else has ..but that you could use help or an assistant..I've been thru this w/3 different people. 1 family and 2 friends but the friends are like family. I ended up having to be rude and now things are awkward between us. I'd just tell her it is a business and it's probably best to keep biz and family seperate..unless you are willing to hire her for an assistant at yours shows and so on.....best of luck..it sucks when people put you on the spot!

All of this is done by me with 0% marketing. If I had the time to take pictures of every single custom order I make I would be selling even more not to mention if I spent a little time marketing. I've been thinking of getting a assistant but I feel I'm too trusting and I know how that could end. If my sil wanted to partner up with me I would beyond happy. Since it is my business I would hire her as a assistant.
