I’ve done a few events in the two years I’ve been building my little business, but this is my first full site sale. In honor of Cyber Monday I decided to offer 20% off all items. I pushed hard to get the big combos/baskets done in time and am so proud of that.
One thing I’ve been a little sad that I couldn’t accomplish was getting two kid combos available for this sale. Unfortunately I ran out of vanilla stabilizer, which keeps soap from turning brown due to the vanilla content in the scents (which all holiday scents I’ve hoarded have apparently lol). I put in an order for more at the beginning of last week, but apparently because I had a small order I wasn’t quite as high of a priority, and my order is still awaiting processing once they return from the extended down time. I’m glad that they got to have an extended time to enjoy their family and the season, so I definitely don’t hold it against them, and it was my fault for not noticing I was going to run out during the most critical time. I just really hope they get it sent out in the morning!
I have been itching to make the new soaps for the holiday. I found some cute little flexible centipede toys that I want to embed.
Aren’t they cute?! They’re not “worms in dirt”, but I think they will work perfectly in the Dirt FO as a stocking stuffer. *grin* I also found some cute holiday erasers to embed. I might have mentioned them before, but I don’t think I shared a picture. I think guest rounds with one or two of these would be pretty adorable.
To top things off I am writing this post from my brand new laptop. Larry was incredibly awesome and got me my first laptop on Black Friday. I’ve wanted one for so many years and most of my interests have required gaming computers, so I was super lucky that they had a massive sale on a gaming laptop. *cheesy grin* Just in time to have my business recipes on hand when I really need them.
Cross your fingers, please, that the sale is a success. In the meantime, I’m going to go re-watch last season’s finale of Doctor Who. Bo has felt a bit neglected that my lap has been full, so I haven’t given enough snuggles to “the poor puppy” lately. *grin* I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving if you celebrated it and that you have found some great deals if you’re into Black Friday and Cyber Monday. 🙂
