Have you ever been so busy that you lose days of your life and literally forget what day of the week it is? Yeah… my life was crazy like that for about two weeks. It got so bad at one point that all possible eating space was taken up by projects (this includes the dining room table, the coffee table, and all the kitchen counters); my poor hubby and daughter were forced to eat their favorite fast food in bed (which I don’t think they minded so much). ^_-
You see, I was suddenly swamped with orders from just about all the stores that sell my work. And since all my items are handmade, it literally took for.ev.er. Not that I’m complaining, though!! I have to admit, it felt good to know that people liked my work enough to order more. =] And knowing that I’m finally contributing to our income again during these hard times was a great feeling. If any of you are considering starting a business and selling your own handmade goods, GO FOR IT!! You’d be surprised how many shop and boutique owners love to promote local artisans and their handmade items.
Anyway, while I was stocking up on supplies at my local Joann’s, I came across this lovely red Fourth of July star for 90% off!! It was originally $20, marked down to $2, and I’m so cheap prudent that I just couldn’t pass it up. Although it was a lovely, deep shade of red to begin with, it just didn’t fit my style. But that wasn’t an issue.
