Non-Etsy Orders ... and other things
First, I wanted to thank you all again for the overflowing support on my ModGreetings venture. It was just a test at first to see if there was interest, but I am so glad to see it has been so well received. And thanks to some much-appreciated press courtesy of Daria at Boutique Cafe and Bowie at Print & Pattern, I have gotten a much wider exposure than I had ever imagined and it has opened new possibilities for related projects in the near future. (I feel so "connected," heeehehe)
But what brings me to this posting tonight is that several people have contacted me wondering if they can purchase the greeting cards directly through me because they do not have an Etsy account. So, I wanted to come here and mention this as an option to any of you who do not want to bother with opening an Etsy account. If you are interested in purchasing some cards (or anything else for that matter) "off-Etsy" just shoot me an email with your complete order at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will email you a invoice through Paypal and ship your package immediately after payment receipt. Since the transaction is done through Paypal we have buyer/seller protection, plus since all packages are sent with delivery confirmation, we are able to track their whereabouts at all times. Cool eh? The only thing that is different is that you cannot leave feedback for me, but that is OK... just email me. I'd love to hear from ya! ;)
Same thing goes for wholesale inquiries.
Soon, you guys should be able to order directly through the website. That has been in the works for a long, long time. But these things take time (or so Jon keeps telling me). I hope to have everything ready by October, before Quilt Market. And there should be a lot more fun goodies over there to choose from. :)
And while I'm here, I wanted to update you on the I don't wanna be a naked bridesmaid challenge. I slacked off a bit on the diet/work-out last week and when I stepped on the scale this morning I was shocked to find out that I had only shed 1 pound. I got my game face on immediately! Grabbed the kids, put on some work-out clothes and headed out to tour the top 3 health clubs in our town. I found one I really liked, signed up, dropped the kids off at their play area and proceeded to do a full work-out routine. I am on a mission right now. I had a light dinner consisting of a salad with a sprinkling of crab meat on top and I feel good... achy & sweaty, but good. I sweated a lot more than I was comfortable with, but what is it that they say... no sweat no gain? or is it no pain no gain? Well, regardless, I will fit into that dress!
P.S. The Favor Box Tutorial will be posted tomorrow. Stay tuned!
