Yikes, Again

I didn't really think I'd be starting another days post with the, 'what a day' sentiment, but I am. The first event was me replying to a friend who had asked about having me make their annual handmade holiday gifts for next year. I had given her a snowflake one and she thought they'd be great. What I didn't realize was that she was fine with getting them done now...20 of them. So I started designing and looking through old patterns to get a few different patterns to use for the purpose. This kept me rather busy for the afternoon. Plus with the lack of sales lately it was nice to think I'd be getting some money coming in.

Then the second event occurred. I got a message asking if someone could buy a pair of slave bracelets. "Sure", I replied and I added a second to the listing. Often when I get these requests the buyer disappears for a while so I didn't hold my breath. Then the same customer responded they they intended to make a large purchase and could they get a small discount. "Sure", I replied and offered them a coupon code discount. Again, when this sort of thing happens, it is often that I never see the customer again or if I do it's weeks later. I think you've guessed by now that the customer actually and immediately made their purchase. I do so adore it when people say what the mean and do what they say.

So I have a lot of things to make today. Half of that order was for custom pieces and once those are done I will also need to remake the other sold items to get them back into the shop. Then it will be back to the ornaments. I have also had a couple of new ideas for fresh pieces lately, but for now, creativity be damned, I've got some real work to get on with this weekend and I'm feeling pretty good.
