Still helping…

Where the fuck are the pompoms? I want to steal pompoms.

Helper cat helps

My team at work is embroiled in some sort of dramatic Christmas decorating contest with another team. There are big plans afoot, but the only thing I’m really excited about is that on the day of the judging we’re going to make everyone at work cocoa and peppermint tea and such while wearing ugly Christmas sweaters and goofy elf hats. Miss Roxie there is making sure that hat she’s on will be warm enough by adding a layer of fur.

I’m going to save photos of the finished hats for when all ~20 are done. X.x

Uh oh…

Know how I can tell I’m ramping up to a manic episode? People tell me I’m being a bitch, I write overly personal blog posts like that last one, and I have multiple projects going at once. 😂

Amigurumi angel for my boyfriend’s grandma for Giftmas, more playing with colorpooling (I’m doing squares of the yarns I have and then working them in order of which I like best,) and a scarf that might be for the boyfriend’s aunt.

And it’s after 3:30am. That’s another symptom. Whee?

In other news, the hats have been selling slowly, but they’re selling. So that’s nice. And I haven’t gained weight so far this holiday season which is a Christmas miracle, lol. But I have plenty more fudge ingredients sitting around so that could change. Ooooh or chocolate truffles!

Oh the holidays…

It’s time to start doing some serious stocking up for the Christmas season.

It’s also time for me to start thinking about how I’m going to handle holiday sales. I used to manually go through and change all the prices so that it would end up being a nice round number, but I’m hoping to have too much stock to make that time-effective.

Using the coupon codes on Etsy is of course convenient, but I’m not sure how to work it so that people actually see them. I know that not everyone looks at the shop “welcome” and if I’m going to have to add “use coupon code XYZ” to every listing then it would make just as much sense to change the price manually.

Maybe I should stop worrying that someone won’t see the code. After all, if I forget to bring my coupons to the store it’s not like they give me the discount anyway. And the extra money would definitely be a help. It would just be nice if prudent business ethics matched up with my personal ethics better.
