i got a treasury on etsy!
i had em a lot for a little while and then not so much. sniff. i am turning over a new leaf! right-o! here it is
so just a quickie, i am okay, i have had lots of migraines and have been really pooped out, but this week...i will be smokin'! not cigarettes. not that either! geez. i mean, doing a lot of work. sales have been picking up, thank god. it is scary when it slows down. and then you realize that EVERYONE is hurting and have no sales. then you realize that you need to infuse your goods with crack cocaine. seriously. that is why people love my stuff. the crack. now you know.
i will be taking photos of the new goodies. i have been crocheting a lot lately. i made a really cute delicate short sleeve bridal shrug, but i am yet to see if it will actually fit a person or not. i don't have anyone super skinny around me, my dress form will have to do, but she doesn't get super small, i don't think. for example, i bought this amazing vintage top and couldn't close the form down enough to get the top even nearly zipped. and the form is from the 50's! i thought the shrug would be bigger than it was. i intended it to be a small or medium, but i didn't think it would be as small as it was. so hard to figure out. plus i made up the pattern and redid it a few times and then i added elements after crocheting the sleeves, so it will be nearly impossible to take it apart at this point. we will see. if my dressform can wear it, i will take a photo of her wearing it.
not much else. jakie worked every day this weekend, so it was not much of a weekend for anyone. before telling me he was working sunday, he brought me coffee and doughnuts. shady, eh? i like how he thinks. i ordered him award winning cupcakes fromhere. i have been eyeballing them forever, they are giant cupcakes in a ball jar. she used to have a zillion flavors and it was just out of her kitchen and it got so giant, all from etsy, that she had to get a bakery facility to use! she said that she recently was told that her business would be in the holiday edition of instyle magazine! i have a feeling new employees will be needed. soon. she uses scharfenburger chocolate and cocoa, high end vanilla from madagascar, everything is high end, so i am excited to get em. i got a dark chocolate one and a vanilla vanilla one. i cannot wait. i think it is in a 1 1/2 pint jar. so. lots to eat. i had to get 2 to make the shipping more bearable. right? i HAD to. anyway, i will be keeping you posted. it always cheers me to see that not cutting corners and giving customers a great product (i am assuming at this point, but from her sales, i think it will be goooooood) and put your heart into it, it pays off. and then people rip you off. le sigh. sniff.
okay. off i go. photos to-morrow, time allowing.
