Long Week

Seriously if these posts get any more boring I am going to start having to apologize at the beginning of each one. I thought I was going to be able to catch up yesterday, but then I got another order that needed making. You know I would never complain about getting orders, but I certainly am curious about why most of the recent ones have either contained something that needs to be custom made or one of my larger pieces that takes a large chuck of time to remake. Like that whole feast or famine thing I was talking about before, there seems to be a cycle related to the types of things that sell at any given time as well. Of course if I was really curious enough I would go through all my sales records for the last six years and do the math necessary to come to actual conclusions so that the information could be used to make predictions about future sales. That would be work however and I am clearly too lazy for that nonsense.

I tatted at a ridiculous rate yesterday and so I start today mostly caught up. I have one necklace that needs to be remade and the rest of the pieces in my queue are ones I'd like to get made, but aren't strictly needed. For example, I like to have more than one pair of ankle corsets made up at a time so I can immediately relist them upon selling and I'd like to get a few more of the masks made so I can change their listings to ready to ship instead of custom. Of course I'd love to get something new made, but it all depends on how I feel after I get that last 'need' piece made. It's already been an exhausting week and next week will be much worse because it contains the oldest daughter's first state testing and the youngest daughter's birthday and subsequent party which means much cleaning, entertaining and adventuring. Too bad I can't sleep sitting up like the cat here.

I had some more stories to tell you about some messages I've recently received, but I don't think I'd tell them right this morning. I think I might get them sorted in my head and then share them tomorrow, maybe...I might forget then too. Yeah, long, long week.

I hate when you feel like you're in a rut.
