Posting a little later than usual (I usually post Monday night), but still getting together with the T-gang over at Elizabeth's . Monday was super busy and by the time I got back home I was worn out. So it was a little dinner, and a little TV... very little as I couldn't keep my eyes open.......but then it could be the glass of wine relaxed my eye lids....LOL! Anyway it was an early night for me, which means an early morning and time to greet the T-gang.
I had bought a set of stamps with a wine theme.......mostly for the small bottle and the wine glass, but the little boarder stamp came is just as useful. A little dangle to hold them together and tiny rhinestones for decoration. The bottom row have two that are a bit different, the "wine a bit" tag was the first one I made and the Happy Birthday one is a card made into a tag.
My friend, Ronda, went crazy for them (and she doesn't drink any kind of alcohol) and wanted to know where I was, with these two days ago, when she went to a dinner party and took a bottle of wine to the hostess. She ordered 12 gift tags with a Paris type theme.
Ronda also wants me to make a couple dozen more and take them to a friend, of hers, that has a small, high-end boutique, that carries a lot of wine themed things. Ronda thinks they will sell at her friend's store. She got so carried away she already had a list of place for me to take these to, to get orders.....LOL! I had to slam on the brakes! I really don't want to get into a special order business, of any kind. ( I will only do special orders for my close friends) So we discussed this a little further then she also ordered 50 name tags for these Jezebel Jars that she makes and sells.
Her parents own a furniture business, here in Shafter and she works for them. She is a fantastic decorator, and has decorated a LOT of high end homes in this area. She has tried a few businesses of her own, and has done very well with each of them until her health acts up and that is about the end of it, so she has settled for working for her parents. I swear this girl can make a business selling mud pies, and THAT is why I always run things by her first. She may be one of my best friends, but she is honest when I ask her opinion, and even when I don't.....................LOL! Love her to bits!
So what's on my agenda for today? CLEANING, not my favorite sport, but I have reached
The weather has been super nice, nice chilly nights and days that take it's time getting into the 80" (F) so the windows have been open 24 hrs a day. Wonderful, except for the DUST on everything! Weeellllll, not JUST that, the whole house needs a deep cleaning, but I won't go into what a bad house keeper I have been since the weather turned so nice.
That's about if for this Tuesday. Hope to get a few more post done this week, along with working on more wine gift tags........might give this a selling a quick try.
|HAVE A SUPER GREAT WEEK!|
