Well, well. We've been crazy busy this week! 36 pairs of earrings are going out on Monday [so far] and I realized that I grossly underestimated how many earrings I need to have on hand! I played catch up last night, and now have a decent amount of stock again. A lot of the styles I have in the shop are the last of their kind for a while though, so if you are really craving some then check them out now.

Also, wanted to show some of the new holiday earrings I have, because I love them!

Also, some other Etsy items recently added to my faves;

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
And now, since it's Sunday, I'm going to get ready for my breakfast date!

I'm sick at home today. My whole body just HURTS and I'm freezing cold!
Thankfully I have C here to help me out when I need it. He was so sweet, brought me the heating pad and got it all hooked up and wrapped me up in blankets so we could watch our movie.
I've been wearing his Sean John hat all day long, because it's nice and warm.

Anyways, C got an amazing offer in a field he has dreamed about for a long time... I'll elaborate more as time goes on because he's still contemplating how he wants to play his cards on this one.

Also, the post office here is really starting to piss me off.
It started when 3 of our bills were more than A MONTH LATE. So we were stuck with late fees. I went to the post office and complained. They apologized profusely, but nothing more. So I dropped it for that once.

Then today I woke up to a message from a sweet buyer from my Etsy shop, saying that her earrings had not arrived yet. I worried. I sent a message to everyone who had bought from me, asking if they had received their packages. Half have, half have not. So I dragged myself out of bed (going to the post office to wait in a 20 minute line while feeling like death isn't my happiest moment, but I do what I can for my customers!) and spoke to the lady I usually get. And she said that they have hired a lot of new people for seasonal reasons and would look into where it would be, because she couldn't find anything in the computer. UGH. How does that happen? So anyways, she comes back and nobody has a clue about a few of the packages. 3 orders just up and gone. Lost. They can't track them down, so I'm going to just have to suck it up, re-make the orders, and hope that the old ones show up somewhere.

(Sorry to all of my customers who were affected by this, the new orders will go out on Monday).

Guess I'll be getting tracking for all of my packages from now on!

Brrrrrr it's cold. Back in bed I go!

Ahh, another Sunday - but this one is different.
C is away visiting friends, so I'm here by my lonesome.
It's ok though, because I've been slightly productive without him here. I made an Etsy Binder to track my orders. I also bought supplies to make 40 more pairs of earrings, which makes me very happy! I'm placing another order tonight so that I can make 50 custom pairs. Wooo!
I know I'm starting small scale here, but I can't wait until I have my studio space set up and am processing bulk orders.
I'm SO excited about selling them in the boutique, because they have been flying out the door like hot cakes there! Same with the cards from LCConcepts - I have already sold more than 60 cards there. Seems like selling cards online is a different story, though. I will have to keep playing with it, but really am focused on the earrings at LCFashion until I can put it on auto-pilot.

Lately I've been watching lots of musicals. Grease, Rent, Sweeney Todd. I think I'll put some Disney movies on today and create to those. I need movies that I don't have to pay much attention to, because I will get sucked it!

Cheers to everyone!
