The products after it leaves my workshop

Today, I got a Thank you post card from a couple that got married and used my product in their wedding.
It made my day!!  It was so cool to see the beautiful pictures of the couple and the beautiful venue.

It’s rare that I get a card like that, but when it does, it really makes me happy.

It’s also fun when customers update me or I get some kind of notice of how the product was used in their event. I feel like even though my job is to create the products and ship it off, my product is finally complete when it is displayed by my customer. It’s like a collaboration!

I realized I never share these wonderful decorations on my blog, so here are some recent ones. Enjoy!

If you use one of my items in your event, I’d love to see some of your pictures so don’t hesitate to send them to me:)

Taxes done, on to new projects!

I think I say this every year, but my least favorite part of having a business is doing taxes.  It just makes me… want to flop into my bed and hide underneath the blankets and fall asleep.

This year we had someone do it for the first time, and it was a bit less stressful, but we still owed a ton. I’m finally realizing I need to get more organized in finances. So I invested in online accounting service.  Now next year should be a breeze! .. Well hopefully.

Anyway, now that that’s over, I get to work on exciting new projects!

One of the things I’ve been wanting to do is to do a photoshoot of my items together. Such as do a set up of a whale party theme showcasing my whale garlands, favor boxes, and whale place cards.. etc, and put them together so my customers can visualize them in party setting. It’ll also get me to think about what other products I need to make to be able to set up a whole party and make it look amazing so they can take the guess work out of party decoration.

So the big project of the weekend was making backdrops!

Well, it’s a good thing I don’t sell products I sew. I’ve made many many mistakes, and the stitches are pretty embarrassing, but I think it turned out ok in the end! (Or at least the parts that will be visible in photos:)

  

And an added bonus… we can snap baby photos with fun backgrounds too!

Stay tuned for more!
