In the process of making all my invitations for a custom order. I am doing 22 of them. 24 in case of mistakes. It is taking me awhile with all the details. I had to thread all my buttons. There were 96! I had to cut out 96 fabric leaves, 24 branches, 96 small wings for my owls, 48 owls, 24 background papers, 24 cards. Then I had to glue everything down...I'm still in the middle of doing this. So far so good!
It has been the worst week for mailing with the USPS I have had since I started HollyCraft...one package lost in the mail and one package with a damaged product...bummer. So now I have to redo one order, then mail it out again and pray it gets there this time...and then with the damaged item I decided to mail the customer a new button with some of my thread so she could do some first aid repair. Poor little owl had only one eye when she received him...the other had broke right down the middle...
Wow it is taking awhile to get 600 fans...was at 599 then went down to 597, now back at 599...we will have that contest soon...:) Happy Crafting everyone!
