In the beginning. There were dogs. And dogs were good and loyal and it was good.
Then came the ornaments and alot of people thought that was REALLY
REALLY good – wait that’s a cat….cats aren’t “good” are they?
In any case, this is what I’ve been up to. And really this herd of ornaments shipped out earlier this week and there’s STILL more to be made. I can’t help but feel a bit sad that this year I may not be able to join in the Christmas madness “retail-wise” simply because Christmas came undoubtedly early on Tumus. Trust me there’s many other things I want to be making for this shop, but the sheer volume is quite staggering at the moment. Even over my Thanksgiving break I’ve been working nearly all day to complete orders early!
Do I dare list a few dog ornaments again? Do I dare swamp myself with more orders? For once I find myself damning my “9-5” job and it’s 8 hour shifts. It takes away valuable time I need to help people. That makes me very sad too. Can I stand on my own? Is this just the pre-Christmas rush at it’s finest?
*pout* I need to figure it out.
I have a small and modest waiting list of customers who still very much want their own pup ornament so they come first when I finish the last ornament from this rush. They have been loyal enough to stick it out with me so far and that deserves something really, really, really good.
