Oh, it’s that time of year again. Everything was nice and calm, then, BAM! Last week of august, I get slammed with orders! I shouldn’t be surprised. This has happened every year I’ve been in business. It’s both validating and frustrating. I love that my customers keep coming back to me (and referring their friends to me) year after year. It really makes me feel like I’m doing a good job, and make a quality product. But it also makes me so stressed when I have multiple orders that need to be filled. I hate when I get behind.
Plus, I have two craft fairs to get ready for!
Sometimes I wish I had a magic crochet fairy that could help me out… or at the very least, that I could get my husband to learn some basic stitches so he could help when it gets down to the wire. *Sigh* But I digress…. I am busy. I almost want to tell my customers that I’ll stop taking orders on ____ date and resume after the craft shows., but hubby thinks I should take the orders since they’re guaranteed money, instead of focusing on the shows since I don’t know for sure how much (if any!) money I will make at those.
So, that’s what I’ve been up to this week… crocheting my fingers off. I do have some new products that I really want to post here, but I never find the time to take and upload the pictures. He’s to hoping that next week is slightly less stressful.
