So, after making breakfast, eating it, getting dressed etc, it was pretty well 11am! I logged in to my pc, to complete the shopping order, and check my Etsy shop - also to print off the receipt for that sale, so I could include it in the parcel.
Another Sale! Yippee! This one is to a customer in New Zealand, so I hope it's not supposed to be a Christmas gift - it will take 10+ days to arrive, I should think!
You might notice that the stripes on this book are narrower. That's the great thing about having 4 different fabrics - I could match the narrow stripes to the smaller book. I also made an A4 sized covered book for J's friend's birthday. She is into funky stuff, so I thought the bright colours would appeal. I used wide stripes for that and she was very pleased with it.
So, that makes 6 things sold in December (so far). I know it's near Christmas, so I would perhaps expect more sales (though no guarantees), but it's encouraging that my sales are gradually increasing each month now. Maybe I will make good sales in January too. I think I'll try a few Valentine themed items - but in a subtle style, nothing too garish, I think.
So, it's now early afternoon. I've done very little, but my two sales are neatly packaged, ready for the post tomorrow.
There is also a nice pile of Christmas parcels in my workroom, that I wrapped up last night. I will transfer them to the area under the Christmas tree this afternoon. As the song goes, "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas"!
