End of July...

It's the end of July! Where did the summer go? It hasn't even been hot here at all. Maybe 5 days have been above 85 degrees. Some days it was in he 50's. Crazy summer! School starts in less than a month.

So a few things I should let you know about. My inventory system is not going to be ready by tomorrow. Been really busy making items. So unfortuantly I have not had time to work on the inventory system. Im going to shoot for mid August to be completed but we shall see. Lots of work to be done.

New items were listed in my bonanzle store. I redid my ioffer store and will be adding things to that.

Just another update....

Last Night was the team end of season party for my son. It was really nice and they got medals and a trophies. Very very cute, and my son was so proud of himself. My son will be moving up a division next season, so I am kinda sad that he will not get to play with his teammates. He could possibly play with 4 of them, since 4 other kids are also moving up a division. We are still going to go to t-ball practice until it is too cold to do it, except it will be a more relaxed schedule and of course no games to be ready for. We will also be heading to the batting cages 1-2x per week to learn to hit a ball that is thrown.

Now onto the biz stuff. I still have not heard back from the shop that was thinking of carrying my stuff. They still have my products, so I guess I am going to have to go in because I keep getting voice mail.

I am a bit busy with orders right now and working as fast as I can to get them made and out the door.

I am working on more new graphics for bottle caps as well as working on the image inventory system. I am happy to say I am about half way done with the "look book" as I am calling it. I have 1100 images inserted and numbered. Working on what is left of the 2400+

I am still shooting for August completion, but we shall see. I am also looking for some INDOOR shows from SEPT to mid Dec. Know any?

Happy 4th Of July!

Happy 4th of July to everyone out there in blogland. Enjoy the BBQ, fireworks and the friends and family, I know I will.

Now for another little update on the biz stuff. I know I am boring but, hey that's who I am.
I listed 53 new items to my bonanzle store. Lots of new bottle cap images. I am currently working on a design book with all of my images. This will be used at my shows for custom orders and for local customers. Must better looking than my current photo album and you can't steal the pictures of of this one. Sad, but it has happened.

But the best part of this is that I am making an inventory code system for all of my images!!! This will make ordering easier for you, and finding the correct caps easier for me. It's really win-win.

Of course since I have over 2400 images to process it is going to take some time to complete. I probably won't have this ready until August or possibly later depending on order volume and family stuff. Once I finish the book, I will then start on updating my image files and then eventually replacing photos in my photobucket, and in each of my stores.

I'm hoping to make ordering easier on you and me. Especially those who like to order just certain caps and not the complete sets.

We Won the Championship & Update

Great News! My son's t-ball team won the Championship game. My son played so well and really really improved. We are off to baseball next year! Way to go Rockies!! Still have a few things left to do with t-ball though. End of Season picnic & awards ceremonies and end of season team parties!

As for the business update....well still haven't heard back from the shop, not a good sign. Still working on my show schedule for the upcoming craft season.

Will post more in detail another time.
