I guess I shouldn’t really call it lazy, I’ve got a boatload of things to do today. But when I look at the photos I took of Wyatt (our dog) I feel like “lazy” really does describe it well! Sometimes I wonder what to write about, and I think how much I love to read about the spaces people do their job in. I LOVE LOVE LOVE to see other peoples’ workspaces. But I’ve already written about mine this week! So I thought I’d settle for a little bit of “here’s what I do all day” and then some super fun exciting news towards the end.
Lots in store for today, got lots of product to make for our retail kiosk out at Park Meadows. I’ve even got my materials stacked and ready to go!
I’m lovin’ the already lined alligator clips! They save me SO so much time. Want some for yourself? Find them in our shop here. Enough shameless self promotion. Moving on.
Want to know what the top three most essential things are for any small business? There they are right above this sentence. Without those 3 things I would be, well, dead.
I love sending out orders. Love it! But I hate when they’re totally ready except one or two missing items. That’s what all these packages are. Got to get those out today!
I am a huge maker of lists. I finally dragged this super huge paper home from the office to make a giant to do list pad for myself. Cheap, not super cute, but it does work! And I do get more done because of it. Speaking of which our spring cleaning and redecorating continues. Check out some of my favorite parts of the house!
We added this in the bedroom and I love the romantic flavor it has. Plus hydrangeas are my favorite so it makes me smile to wake up to those. We worked on the living room too, and as you can tell from the photos, Wyatt HATES to have his picture taken.
The next couple are pretty much the same, except for the dog. Keep an eye on him 😉
That look was so pitiful I had to move on away from him. Back to the office for some work, with a passing glance to my favorite sign 😉
Packing orders today and sending off product to my favorite modeling agency, Ellie Bean. We send stuff, we get back free photos, everyone is happy! Want your child to model and get free stuff? Want to send your products off and get free photos? Check out Ellie Bean here. They’re the best. You get everything back within a week and its totally awesome. Here’s what we’re sending for owner Alexi’s daughter.
And finally some awesome cool news! There’s a whole print magazine that’s published quarterly called Specialty Retail Report. Its pretty awesome and I read it online all the time before we opened our first kiosk. Well somehow they found out about us and wrote a whole two page spread in their Spring 2011 edition. I’m SO EXCITED! You can read the online version here but I had to take photos of the ACTUAL magazine to show you too. Yayyyyyyy! I think this is even more exciting than being in CNN Money Small Business.
We’re even in the table of contents!!!!!!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHH!
With an Ellie Bean photo of course. This is Marley, ask for her. She’s an amazing model!
That’s enough excitement for me today 🙂 Enjoy your Thursday and I hope y’all have some awesome plans for the weekend coming up!
