I am spreading myself thin again….I can feel it. I have been easily distracted this last week and while some of it is good and productive some of it makes me say “pick a direction already!” Oh and before I forget and chances are good that I will…here is a better view of those pants that I love….
Turns out that I will need those nice outfits. Here is how it went down….. We had a potluck at work last Thursday. I knew I would see our retired optician, who loves limoncello. I happen to make limoncello every year so I brought her some. She dropped a little gift bag on my desk and said “I knew you would bring me limoncello.” I opened the bag and there was one of those trendy round natural chap sticks that the girl loves so I passed it on to her and a trial size bottle of all natural hairspray. I held that hairspray in my hands while thinking “how did she know?” Hairspray, eyeliner, mascara, lip liner, and lipstick those are my last products that need to be changed to all natural. I couldn’t believe that I was holding something that I was looking for! I looked a little closer and googled the name.
I have not ever heard of this direct sales company. I looked for somebody close and there were only two names listed in Ohio. That was the moment I went from buying to selling. I ordered my kit under the retired optician’s out of state niece and am planning to have an open house on Sunday. I haven’t invited anyone yet….I am waiting for a tracking number for my kit. I don’t want to put the cart before the horse if you know what I mean. I am hoping this does well. I have done direct sales with parties before and have done well enough…it’s a lot of work but it’s worth it. I can’t wait to try the lotion, I haven’t mastered a homemade recipe so this is desperately needed by myself and the girl.
I also need to make a “making” schedule asap! I have a big two day show September 8th and 9th so I need to get busy. If I sell two wreaths I will get my money back, BUT it’s a two day show so I hope it’s worth my time.
I made the new website that still isn’t ready and haven’t found a spare second to even make a second post. Part of it is time and part of it is frustration because I don’t know what I am doing. I know I will figure it out….it’s the when I’m not sure about.
The best thing I did last week was buy a finch feeder. I could usually spot one or two yellow finch in my yard at a time before the feeder. I have so many of them now! There are three males and a female out there trying to get at the feeder right now. I’m happy…the cat is happy…and the birds are getting fed.
Those are the highlights from the last couple of days. Nothing exciting by society’s standards but exciting to me nonetheless…..Zia
