When it rains, it pours!!

And right now, it's pouring polymer clay mini-sweets-- a real gullywasher!

I've had two new "as is" orders from my Etsy shop since this morning, and I'm in the process of filling no fewer than five custom orders, too-- three of them multiple-item orders!

(Ok, anyone who makes a real living from this type of thing-- should s/he happen by some strange chance to ever read this-- is probably laughing at my naive amazement, now, but we all have to start somewhere, right? For a little something on the side, I don't think it's too bad.)

I absolutely forbid myself to say anything that might remotely be interpreted as a complaint ;o) -- but, that said, I can see how this stuff can become confusing! (g)

I had a small panic just a moment ago while trying to figure out who wanted the blueberry pop-tart pendant with the strawberry pop-tart earrings (no missing bites). I was getting that order confused with another order for strawberry pop-tart earrings (one missing bite). Seriously, I had no idea how many people love Pop-Tarts. ;o)

This is all very exciting, of course, for someone who's never really sold anything she made herself, until a few weeks ago. I'm thinking that once the rush is past, I'll celebrate by treating myself to a book or two. What's the book about, you ask? (Go ahead, ask, so I don't look quite so foolish.) Polymer clay! What a shocker, huh? ;o) I'm going to justify it by calling it an investment in "the business"-- R&D, you know. (g)

Well, better enjoy it while it lasts. I'm sure there will be slower times ahead. But for the moment, it's fun to be a bit hectic.

You can definately expect an order from me. Probably just a pendant or two rather than a necklace or ear rings.

Thanks! I'll be looking forward to that! :o)
