Yesterday I sold my first item. It was the Flower Shop sign …my favourite one. I am a little sad to see it go but I am super excited to make my first sale. There is something so exciting about somebody wanting to buy something that I made.
Of course, the sale sent me into a flurry of activity over getting it shipped. New challenges came up as I figured out how best to prepare it for shipping. In the end, because it is an odd sized rectangle, I just wrapped it in paper and a whole lot of packing tape. I also included a handmade thank you card simply because I love when I receive nice touches like that with things I order online.
Jonny sold his first guitar stand last week so I had been through this already and was already a little prepared with some ideas in my head of what I wanted to do. I was probably in a bigger flap when we had to ship the guitar stand just because it was the first time and it was a little more of a tricky shape.
In other news, Jonny made this awesome table for his Mom for her birthday. Isn’t it great?
