It did kinda stink.
Let's put it this way...I got railroaded 6 ways from sunday this week.
I may not be the sharpest crayon in the box but I know when I am being taken.
Let that be known. So if you think you are pulling a fast one on me.
You're not. Sometimes it is just easier to give in.
'nuff said. You probably know who you are if you are reading this.
I am sick of it though. Gotta tell ya.
Oh...I did get yelled at by a store this week.
Ya. That was uncalled for.
We aren't going to let that happen again.
The moral of the story is you get more honey with sugar than vinegar.
So please don't yell at me.
Hey...since I am dishing stuff out right now (bare with me...this is my therapy at the moment)
I gotta tell you a funny story (cough cough)
so...before xmas a "friend" who lives close, emailed me asking if I had a tee for her childs upcoming b-day. Um...well. Let me think. Probably.
So I said "yes" and I left it outside my front door all packaged up like I do for all "orders" and said friend apparently came one day and picked it up.
Ya. So...ok...did I get a thank you? Did I get a "how much do I owe you?"
So I emailed a couple weeks later to make sure she got it.
Not even an
"oops I am so sorry, what a turkey I am...I didn't even thank you for my free shirt that I ordered"
HA. People never fail to let me down I tell you.
Moving on to happier things now.
Thank you for listening.
I do know that 99.9% of the chicks I have dealt with are truly truly good people.
It is just funny when you see peoples true colors.
Hm. Funny is probably not the correct term.
Anyways. So last night I thought it would be fun to make a few doll tees.
I listed 9 of them.
They were gone in less that a minute.
I did learn that my website cannot handle that.
No worries...newer bigger things in the future and hopefully it will be able to handle that.
Here were some of the tees.
(if you missed them...I promise to make more)
I want the striped tee in my size...unfortunately it would only fit my havanese Roofus.
Yesterday was also school project day.
We had 3 to do.
(1) teeth diorama
and these (for a book report)
You know what. I am going to be honest.
For the first time...I did not help with the projects.
They did them all themselves.
If you do not know what the sock puppets are it is a mouse and a porcupine.
I figured I needed some valentine decor around here.
I also figured I would test my will power with an easy pour container full of m & m's.
I guarantee I will throw them out by sunday because lets face it...I am the one that will be eating them.
aaaaaand...I skipped my Christmas "peeps in a jar" decor. I just wasn't feelin' it.
But I brought them back because I cannot resist sparkly vanilla heart peeps or ones that say I love u.
I mean I cannot resist shoving them them in a jar. I can totally resist eating those.
Ew ew ew. I hate marshmallows.
Yes that is a $4 table cloth from Target.
Cheesy? Ohh ya. But isn't most Valentine's decor?
Think about it.
So, I am currently dyeing "something" that I can't tell you about yet.
But I had an AHA moment the other day along with a "why did I not think of that before" moment and with a little luck, I will have something to show you this weekend.
Oooo...I forgot to mention the rest of my "friend" story.
But I have to first tell you that I got an email yesterday from Jeni and it was so sweet
and I just want to say thank you.
I tell you...one nice email from a reader, customer, friend erases all the bad stuff before it.
It's kinda like a quick compliment to anyone...and you just see them light up.
So just to let my "friend" know...the one that is now avoiding me.
Yes...we saw you pretend to be fishing for something in your purse at xmas time and literally
breeze right past us into a restaurant.
It was a scene right out of a seinfeld episode.
I thought it was pretty funny.
This was all over a $25 tee.
All I needed was a thank you.
Thank you's go a long way.
