Well, That's A Relief

Well, the first day of the Wunderkammer giveaway was a rousing success. The second prize has already been unlocked and if we maintain even half that momentum, all the prizes will have homes in the end. The site traffic also more than doubled yesterday and it added a handful of blogger followers as well. My hopes for the event are of course to gain lasting exposure for the blog and all those featured. What I didn't expect was the information I've been receiving in the entry comments. Already. I've heard tale of purchases made after features, which is awesome. Everyone also seems to have wildly different favorites, which tells me that I should keep bouncing all over the place as I'm filling several different niches with my themes. So one day in and I'm glad I decided to do this...of course ask me again and I might just say I'm exhausted from plugging the thing relentlessly.

Speaking of exhausted, (great segue right?) here's the latest on the house buying. We were told yesterday that we may be receiving 'docs' today. This, I'm told may result in us closing by Friday. I've learned to take everything with a grain of salt here, but I did start up with the final packing anyway, hoping to get our move on this weekend. What's funny is my birthday is Saturday and I've barely given it a thought. I assume that I'll be spending the day with carpet cleaners and boxes so woohoo, right? Of course at this point, I actually hope that is what I'm doing. As you're fully aware, we're all exhausted from this process.

I have been trying my hardest to keep up with tatting orders by immediately remaking everything that sells. This would be easier if folks were buying smaller pieces, but I won't complain. If anything, this situation has made me very money conscious and every dollar counts. Again, my tatting is another thing held up by the move. I do actually have a few new pieces sitting about waiting for their photo shoots. I also want to make some masks in new colors, but why bother until I'm moved and can get photos of them. I guess what I'm trying to say is, can I be moved already?
