I don’t know about you guys but this week has been crazy, I’m ready for a drink. and it’s not even 5 yet. I think I was ready for one by 11am, actually. Between new samples arriving, prepping for ATL market, photoshopping new products, etc…I’m about to lose my shit. This is going to be an expensive, but hopefully awesome trip. We got a ton of new samples to take down there this week, as I mentioned in an earlier post, and that included about 25 new pillow styles and 8 new scarf styles. It feels like Christmas every time a package comes in with new samples. There isn’t a better feeling than pulling something out of the box and thinking “I designed this myself!” We got some of our spring/summer scarf styles and I’ll be doing a post later with all of the different ways you can wear them. I’m super excited about them! The only problem I have now is our sweet little designs are taking up all of my space and until yesterday I was literally swimming through pillows and practically doing hopscotch over cocktail napkins just to get around.
So about those pillows…Guess what? I shipped them all down to ATL yesterday, as well as my beloved faux bamboo chairs. The girl who handles all of our shipping is awesome, and they were busy so she told me she’d email me our invoice and I could come pay it tomorrow. $450 and an anxiety attack later, I’m at home now stressing about everything getting there safely, on time, and to our booth. Does anyone else have starting-a-business-is-terrifying freak out moments like I do? They seriously suck.
Well, I think I deserve a good, stiff drink tonight and found this cocktail recipe on Pinterest.
Uh, YUM! And easy too. I think 2-3 of these could help settle my nerves about everything, and now that it’s almost 5 I should probably get a head start on making one. Tomorrow is Friday and I couldn’t be happier about that!
