Hello All! I'm back from my summer break, so to speak. I ended up still fulfilling a few emergency orders, as I feel sick to my stomach if I know I can help in a situation, but don't. I was glad that I did that, because, then, I heard from a customer because of a really ridiculous mistake I made on their crown set. I felt Awful about that...but I was able to get it fixed in time.
So, a lot was learned these last 2 weeks. A lot in my studio was cleaned up. A lot of mental work and planning was done. I got some actual physical work done, too--the stuff made that I've been wanting to make. But of course, not nearly all of it. I also didn't things posted on the site. BUT, I do have a plan on getting it all done.
Enter our awesome high School student who comes to our house/pool to do swim lessons with the kids. Yeah. she babysits. And the kids love her to pieces. So I've finally done it. I've hired a babysitter. Kids are happy. I am happy. Babysitter is happy 'cause she's earning $, plus she's just an awesome young woman.
So today I picked up where I promised some customers I would. I've got some sets done for the day. I have a couple of dozen photos to sort through to post on the site, and to email off to the company sell wholesale/drop ship for. Pretty good start for my first day back!
My next break will be over the kid's Fall Break. October 19-26.
