I did have one disappointing moment yesterday to recount. I was messaged by a stylist on facebook asking to use some masks for a photo shoot this weekend. The disappointing bit is that I felt the need to say no. They are located in New York City which is the home of everything I send there gets lost on its way. I just can't do it anymore. They always contact me with a week or less until their shoots and I rush out pieces using various shipping companies. Then I get the message that they haven't arrived and of course the shipping companies, USPS, UPS, FedEx all say they have been delivered. So it would seem that they get lost or stolen in these large, over populated buildings and I'm out opportunities and usually large, expensive pieces. It's just not worth all the stress. Heck I sent pieces to Canada with less trouble and they had a much more realistic time frame. I know I'm probably shooting myself in the foot here, but the last lost package to NYC was just a couple of months ago and would have been in one of the Vogue magazines from another county, but it got lost after being delivered and I lost a mask and a necklace so the wound is still fresh.
So the only plan for today is to get this tatted bit turned into a necklace and hopefully listed in the shop as well. Oh, and more snowflakes of course...many more snowflakes.
