Do you know how much 12,000 baggies weigh? I do! I just ordered that many (in 6 different sizes) and the box that is due to be delivered tomorrow is 44lbs. That's around a 4-5 month supply for me. It's totally nuts, but also totally necessary for the kits.
I was doubly productive today with Mom's help. Not only did I work on finishing up some samples that needed to get shipped out, but Mom managed to knock out my entire backlog of shipping random things that needed to go out. AND I got my email inbox back down to under 50! My goal is to whittle that down to 30 before I leave on the road trip next week. Baby steps in getting caught up, but I'm really feeling the difference.
Now, if I could only spend the next week doing nothing but beading!! My one big freak out this week is getting the samples made and photographed to ship out to Bead & Button next Friday. I also have to price out the class kits and write descriptions... I only have one figured out for sure. I'm working on a few others, but they need some time and attention. Luckily with the temperatures hitting 100+ every single day in Austin, I basically don't leave the house at all so beading time is easy to come by that way.
Not the most exciting blog post in the world, but the reality is I'm just slogging away on chores for the moment!
