I Own This!

The store is closed for now.  It's amazing and a blessing that I was getting more orders when I was barely tweeting, MIA from facebook, and not making anything new.  That's a beautiful thing.  On the flip side, it gets boring making the same thing over and over and over.  Yes, I get faster at making it.  Buy the supplies for that item in bulk when I can.  And I do get tickled that people are still buying it.  I'm talking about Down Town Brown.  You do it little hair tie!  But brown over and over can be sad for me.  I like colors and I like new beads.  I like colorful new beads.  I have plenty in packages that haven't been open.  DTB won't let me get to them.  So, I'm taking over again!  Even though I'm own this store, I really don't.  With any business, the customers and clients own it.  The owner just sneaks away when they can until they once again say, "I'm CEO of this joint.  I make the rules."  All in all, it's better to be a slave to your business than somebody else's.

I thought I was the only one that gets bored making the same thing over & over. I knitted dish towels for a fundraiser last year & had an order for over 200 towels! Thank God for the ladies in my knitting class that volunteered to help but that drove me nuts after the first twenty towels!

Girl, it is a blessing that people want the items, but it gets tideous after a while. That's so sweet of you to do 200 towels!!! You know me with my knitting experience. I would have been wiping sweat off my forehead with the dish towels trying to make them.
