august planning.

whoa whoa whoa.  how is it possible that we are already this deep into summer?  not to sound like an old fogey but, where is the time going?  we blink for one second and it’s already the end of august, jeez…

i hate to drop off the face of the earth, but i also find it hard to post about what’s going on when there’s not exactly much to show for it.  i mean, we already have several of those posts, oops.  but k and i ARE working!  the wheels are always turning.  we’re preparing to set up an online shop, new products are being designed, and craft fairs are on the horizon, as usual.

we finally got some professional business cards. "because we want to win some lunches!"

we are also planning for…dun dun DUUUN…the holidays!  yes, after two years, we have learned that sooner is better when it comes to holiday planning.  to anyone else involved in our type of business, this is really no surprise.  and in fact, august is not even particularly early, as far as getting the holiday prep started.  but k and i are constantly learning as we go, and we’ve learned that starting holiday prep in the fall is ok, but summer (and maybe even earlier) is better.  because one day…ONE DAY…it would be nice if we weren’t completely scrambling at the last minute, leading up to holiday craft fairs.

this is some font we've been practicing and playing around with for potential new cards.

and really, when it comes down to it, it’s so that we can give our customers more of a variety of product.  the more prepared we are, the more we can have for you all to peruse and purchase when the holidays come around.  (bobbi marbles calendars, greeting cards, and sweaters, anyone?)
