busy!! ok, got everything just about done :) getting the ladybug sets done today and one more bear hat and all my orders (for crochet) will be done and ready to go out for shipment tommorow ! i got like 40 owl hats done in like 4 about hectic! but i dont want any unhappy customers :)
NEXT time i apply to heartsy , even if i dont get featured :
have LOTS of inventory (at least 5 of each item)

It certainly has been a great rush of business with heartsy..and i do plan on doing the whole heartsy thing again, or at least trying to get featured again i should say, cuz its not a guarantee! I was going to inquire about getting a booth at the fair this year, but im not because im not sure if i would have the time to create up enough inventory to do it, bows and headbands yea but the crochet items, man idk bout that ! Hubby knows how busy i have been, so he obviously dont want me to do it this year, theres always next year!

Im planning on getting lots of dif and new items up in my shop here as soon as i get all my orders done and shipped out. Im going to make a dif style of owl hat without buttons, some nfl stuff (steelers mainly), and some other things. Got my ribbon order the other day (and some headbands and clips) but im not doing any new items until i get the current orders finished and out!

Im off here for now, lots to do!

Heartsy Rocks!

So i got accepted and its been going GREAT!! i have made so many sales that its unreal! Never thought i would ever get accepted (4th time is the charm) , the times before i had given a referral link for my friends/family etc to vote well the 4th time i didnt cuz i just wanted the heartsy community to vote for me (afterall they ARE the ones who would be buying the deal). Sure the deal i offer (and any deal on heartsy) sellers like myself do take quite a bit of a cut (50% off at the very least) but, im hoping it brings in more customers for me. i have a total of 68 sales so far (i had only 3 before heartsy!). I got alot of crocheting to do (my owl hats are selling like hot cakes!) I am extremely happy (and a bit overwhelmed at the same time!) with what heartsy has done for me! I have got more yarn (that i need to fill orders) plus ordering some more ribbon tommorow ..I want to get some new items up in the shop (steelers and nfl inspired stuff mainly and some other things as well).

Im off to start on getting orders filled then to bed (new classes start tommorow at math and concepet development!) hectic, busy week!
