Thank you all so much for your warm wishes and great advice, it was so greatly appreciated. I haven’t had a chance to go through every one of the comments yet, but I plan on it! I went back to work this week and even though I was so tired I thought my eyes would bleed, but I went back with gusto. I have to. As you know I was super sick and wasn’t able to work for nearly six months and we have medical bills that are astronomical so maternity leave is not an option for moi, we are are two income household. I have been putting the baby in her carrier and work in 1 hour to 1.5 hour increments. It’s amazing how efficient you can get when you have to be, I thought I was efficient before but you don’t even know how organized I have become, I’m like a very tired, but efficient machine.
I thought I would have at least 3 more weeks to get some of the new offerings up in the shop for holiday, but I was only able to get some of the new stationery offerings up before baby. I didn’t want to add stationery until I had the perfect stock, I am a little nuts about paper and I love either extra thick or onion skin thin, not in between. I am using a beautiful luxe cotton cardstock and having the sets professionally printed, they are perfect for gifting! I had been asked about the monograms being turned into stationery forever and viola, here it is! I also have the wax seal, a clean modern type and a glamorous typeset one. I will soon be adding the striped bow (one of the most popular designs). I have some new stamps that I think will be a welcome addition, but I haven’t figured out how to shoot product in the tiny window of time I have. Gosh, I have so many things I want to add! I can’t wait to share with you.
I am weary to do a giveaway because I haven’t had the winners claiming the prizes which makes me sad, lol, but in the spirit of holiday and being so very grateful I am absolutely going to do a giveaway of one of the sets. So I will make this super simple and ask:
What are you grateful for this week?
Answer the question by Sunday, December 1, 2013 and I will announce the winner on Monday, December 2, 2013. December already? Wow! And because Black Friday is around the corner I think a little discount code is order, THANKS2013 for free shipping on orders over $40 (international too!) until November 30th. Good luck!
