  • I just placed another order!!

    On my continuing journey of kicking myself in the butt to get me making and selling my goodies I have to say Ive just placed an order for over £40+, the most ever on one order, and its only findings, not even pretty stuff!!

    As I only got my first credit card about 2 weeks ago, I have yet to experience the 'whack in the face' of the first bill that comes through.

    Dam, those credit cards, I curse them and every sweet buying experience they ease for 5 minutes then have a hold over me!!

    Please feel free to say supportive and nurturing things, I need it.

    Buying findings is a bit like buying washing powder and toilet paper. You can't do without them but you'd rather be buying shoes and chocolate! I hope the bill doesn't hurt too much. You can always send a cheque before the bill arrives and then feel smug that it says zero when it does arrive

        Well just make sure that the 'loved ones' missing out are the 'least' loved ones!

                The ideas are half the battle.Draw/write them down so you can go back and work on them when you have time.

                I sounded like a mother then!!

                    Ok, so my credit card bill is nearing £200 all on craft stuff and I feel very sick.

                    Suppostive, nurturing things need to be said please.

                      But isn't the craft stuff an investment that you're going to make money out of? In my eyes that justifies it perfectly. Plus the credit card bill can be spread over a couple of months and I've heard and had much worse than 200 pounds so instead make yourself feel better by thinking of all those gorgeous goodies you've bought and all the lovely things you're going to make out of them!

                        You need to spend this money to build up stock etc - it's not like it's money wasted. I think my start up costs were about £500 so you are no where near that yet! Positive thoughts coming through

                              Thanks guys.Im being so silly Ive really narked myself off.
                              My primary budget is £500(not including computer when I need to get one) so I dont know what Im complaining about either.
                              Everything I make isnt quite up to my Leo standards, I made a necklace the other day, quite fiddly, and the tigertail coming out of the fastener ends wernt quite the same length after Id crimped it all together.My silly side says just leave it, youl be wasting expensive sts crimps if you take it apart, but my business side says its not perfect enough to sell, do it again.

                              Il do my utmost not to complain again
