Last night was one of those nights when I could not fall asleep–even though I was really tired–and everytime I did start to doze off, I was awakened by some new thought of “oh yes, and don’t forget to….” There is so much going on the next four days, and I wish I had a few more to prepare!
I can’t believe I keep forgetting to tell you all abou this, so before I forget yet again, let me fill you in on where all of these sleep-sucking thoughts are coming from. I am to be doing a home show/holiday shopping party this weekend with a good friend of mine, Amanda, who makes beautiful (and affordable!) necklaces and bracelets. I am so excited for Saturday, but there is still a lot to be done! Tonight I will be heading over to Amanda’s house to help her clean and get set up. Then if time allows, I will be working on making a couple of zipper pouches that will be of much better quality than the first one I made (they will even have a little layer of interfacing). I would also like to make one or two more sets of napkins if my fabric arrives in time, but I am not holding out all hope for that! I need get all of my other items ready to go with prices and all of that jazz, and I need to figure out an easy system in case people want to place a custom order.
In other ID news, I no longer have perfect vision (I went to the optometrist yesterday). This may not be a big deal to you, but it is to me because I have always had perfect vision! I have worn glasses in the past just to help reduce the glare/eye strain from being on the computer all day, but now I need real glasses for normal activities like going for a walk, playing Little Big Planet (the ultra-fun new game Brandon and I bought this week for our PS3!), driving, or ice skating. Actually, I don’t usually go ice skating because there are no ice skating rinks nearby and I usually hurt myself whenever I do manage to go.
But there you have it. This is a busy week, and OH YES, one more thing. The ID shop will be closed the majority of the day on Saturday for the party. That means that whatever I have in the shop will be fair game to those at the party. If you are pining over an item now, go get it (and leave me a note to seller that says “FREESHIP1030” for free shipping on any order placed between now and when I close up shop Saturday morning…) I will refund the shipping amount from your paypal order. But remember, this is only good until this Saturday, Nov. 1 at 8:00 a.m. EDT
Happy Thursday, everyone!
