Focus Grasshopper (orig post date 3/19/11)

Grasshopper being me, that is. I really intended to post every week. I did! However, I am still trying to get that big order for the casino done and it's got to be my focus. (Not that I'm complaining! I am thrilled to be so busy so soon! Beyond thrilled, really. Flabbergasted is closer to the truth Anyway, moving on...) I had to interrupt myself this past week to fulfill another order for someone at work as well. I'm really happy with how that turned out too! The packaging, the product, everything! I'll say more about that once they've been given as the gift they were intended to be.

I have another window open with my brand new flickr account open in it. I'm hoping to get some of my photos up there and have them accessible when I'm not here at the home computer.

Want to see my new business cards? *bounces* I am so excited to have them! I feel all official and stuff. 

I bought them from Vistaprint. I've seen them rec'd many times on various blogs and articles, but to be honest with you, I won't be using them again. It feels too much like a con to me. The lead in hook is that you can get 500 cards for something like $4.95 but if you want anything extra the fees really start to pile up. By the time I was finished my order (counting shipping) was 47 something. Well, here....I went and found the digital receipt I saved. I'll just show you that. er...apparently not. The browse button decided it didn't want to work on the "add picture" so I'll have to save that for another day. Bottom line is, I love the cards. I love the little leather case I bought to go with them. I didn't love the final price and the outrageous shipping charges. Let me clarify that a bit; if at the outset they had said it was likely to end up costing that much I wouldn't have a problem. It's the con part of it that I don't like. I also don't love the daily used car salesman-like emails hitting my account either. I'm not saying don't use them. I'm just saying I don't think I'll be using them again. Okay, enough with my public service announcement.

If I can get blogger to let me upload more photos I'd love to show you my new packaging design. Let's see how cooperative its feeling. 

Look at that! I did that! One piece of cardstock, one sheet of duralar, about 2 feet of polished hemp and my cute little stamp circle I made. And the butterfly of course. Can't leave that little time sucking buster out. *grin*

Alright. Time to get back to work. I've got 5 more dragonflys to make this weekend plus packaging. If I'm really lucky I may even be able to get the pics done on the prayerbeads and actually get something up on the Etsy site. *crosses fingers*

Talk to you soon!
