I feel so guilty--such a bad little blogger. The past two weeks have been hard, to say the least, and I hope and pray that this new week will bring lots of health and rest and creativity! :)
I DID get four sales on etsy this week! YAH! :) My aunt stocked up on some baby gifts, and I had a custom order for my Valentine Chunky Crayons! YAH! Bad thing was, I based the crayon postage on the weight of the crayons themselves--forgetting the weight of the box, bubble wrap, bags, cards, tags, etc. So I ended up eating $4.00 in postage--on a $13.50 sale. Not so good! I'm also hoping for a custom order to come through from a lady I've been convoing back and forth. (Convo is etsy speak for messages to the seller.)
I had fun packaging up the little crayons for the custom order. They looked soooo pretty in the little bags with all that crinkle paper! I thought of the little kiddos who would get them--and hope they are quite excited by them! I wanted to take a picture, but it was midnight, dark, and I was tired. And I wanted the box to be completely prepped for the next day--so I wouldn't be trying to get it done with a Monster and a Bug under foot! (THAT makes me crazy!!!) But I had a cute idea to package some up and take some pics of them in an Easter basket with the little plastic eggs and grass in there! What a GREAT alternative to chocolate for Easter!!! :) I originally wanted to display them in this manner for the craft fair, but then I found out that Easter was before the fair--so now I'll have to come up with something else adorable!
I have a pile of pink buckets and sand buckets with shovels--and I keep thinking they will be neat to use at the craft fair--maybe with some Baby Bundle gifts??? I'm still trying to figure them out. Late March will be getting warm--and people will be in a beach mood around then. (It was 79 degrees the other day here--around the 70's today--so March WILL be warm!)
Anyway, I'm about shot for tonight. I DID love my blog today! :)
