I have been waking up in the middle of night having panic attacks about how much stock I will need for all the Christmas Fairs I am attending. All I seem to be doing is cutting out stuff and sewing up b****y lavender bags (another story). I also have my sister nagging me about how this is going to be your busiest time of the year so get your bum in gear.
Just a quick update on how the 'Daily Mail' thing went, in the 1st weekend I had 4 orders which were a mix of many items but mainly Lavender Bags (1 person ordered 20). I know the article was on Lavender bags but I do make other things other than them!! I also had 2 wholesale enquiries I was really excited and now I am thinking b****y h**l, I hope they do not come off! (once more my sister gives me another lecture).
I also ordered 78 metres of fabric yesterday, that needs paying for at the end of November so I really need to do well over the festive period, I think I will but if all goes horribly wrong I will be having a good January Sale.
I also booked a holiday in August for December to Lanzarote, this seemed like a really good idea at the time, but this is just adding to my dilemma as it falls just as I should be completing all the Christmas web orders. Oh well nothing I can do now. I have had to start Christmas shopping as well as I hate being disorganised, it's not in my nature.
I go away next weekend to Keswick in the Lake District I am really looking forward to it as I am looking forward to the more obvious seasonal change that happens up there! I have also promised to take my daughter to the Beatrix Potter World of Peter Rabbit, she is really looking forward to it, me too secretly.
I will hopefully load up some photos on my next visit.
Thanks for listening, sorry for the bad language, believe me in person it has been far worse!!!!!!!!!
