Considering what a 'bleh' state I was in on Wednesday, I got a much needed boost Thursday morning. I opened my email to find an alert from my Etsy store that I had a sale! Woohoo, sold a couple of my cupcakes. The next email was another alert from Etsy, that I had a message. Turns out a doll collector in Sweden wanted to know if I could ship my Tulip Monster High doll to him. Of course after checking the shipping prices I happily agreed. While I was conversing with him I got ANOTHER alert for yet another cupcake sale! 5 minutes later my Swedish customer made his purchase. So I skipped (ok not really but I was super happy as I drove) to the post office.
I drove down the mountain to Michael's to return a set of markers I bought for my middle sons art class only to be told he didn't need the expensive one just simple crayola! (His list said Watercolor markers!) While there I pulled up a coupon on my phone (LOVE that they are now taking online coupons through smartphones! Now I'll never be without a coupon again!) And bought a package of casting material. I started off with a cheap 'lifecast' set, as I'm not entirely sure the Monster High feet will mold properly. But I also found 4 new shades of embroidery blending filament, to use as tinsel on my Christmas trees for next year. Plus let's see some ribbon and other sewing stuff.
I came home, made dinner for the boys and hubby and then got ready to go to dinner with some of the other Recruiter wives. Had a nice time, but honestly would have preferred to stay home and sew! lol oh well.
Amazingly good things continued this morning as I woke up to 2 MORE sales in my shop, including the teal and brown Monster High outfit from my last post! That one is currently heading to the UK! AND I got another email from my Swedish customer asking if I could create an outfit to go with a pair of teal and black striped socks another Etsy artist was selling! (there is something ridiculously encouraging about having a customer order a 2nd item before receiving their first one!!!) So I spent the afternoon talking with him and sketching up a design!
I also finished up a cute green outfit which I hope to photograph and list in my shop tomorrow! Sorry there aren't any pictures today, but hopefully I can share some tomorrow! oooh hey how about these...these are polymer clay pillar candles that I have listed HERE!
