Busier

Alright, I didn't do much I what I said I'd do yesterday. I have a couple of fine excuses though. So I didn't get to remaking the pieces that sold because just as I was sitting down to do my morning blog work for the Wunderkammer, I got a message from a lovely repeat customer with a request for 8 large motifs in some unusual colors. They are only unusual because I don't have any thread in those shades on hand. So this meant I spent a good part of the morning doing thread inventory so I could make a full order of threads from Handy Hands instead of just the three balls I would need for the order. That task sucked away a good portion of the morning and a great many dollars. The rest of the morning was given to getting started on her order with the colors I did have on hand.

The afternoon started off with my second excuse, the family dental appointment, which is starting to take a bit longer since the children are getting old enough to be treated to the more aggressive cleanings. The lucky little buggers still have yet to get a cavity. Yes, I know that's a good thing. I guess I'm just a bit jealous.

When we got home I almost went ahead and got the new pendants listed, but the husband was home for the afternoon and his mocking of my self portrait photography is legendary, so I just left it for today and went back to the motif order.

That's entirely what is on tap for today as well. I'll get those pendants listed this morning so I can spend the rest of the day working on the motifs. It'll take me a few days at least to get these ones done and a couple more days once my thread order arrives to finish them. Then I can get back to the pieces that need remaking. I am truly pleased at the change back to busy around here. I enjoy being productive and hopefully it keeps up for a long time.
