Monday Musings: Busy As A Bee

I haven’t posted in awhile, because I’ve been extremely busy.

My current term at CSCC ends on Wednesday, August 15th, and I just have one final exam and one final project left to complete.  I’m taking care of all the details for transferring and will begin working on my Bachelor’s degree at Granite State College on September 8th.  I am so ready to begin the next chapter of my education, and really looking forward to attending Granite State.

The wedding is now less than two weeks away and I still have tons to do, but I’m also getting tons of help.  We went last Friday to apply for our marriage license, and Lorne will be picking it up today.  We are taste-testing cupcakes (oh the horror!) this weekend while we attend the Festival of Fireworks and hang out with our friends.  The forecast right now is not pretty, and I’m hoping it will be clear on the day of the wedding.

And of course through it all, I am trying to keep the business going and growing.  I am offering 25% off in my Etsy shop with the coupon code WEDDING through the end of August, to help recoup some of the costs of the wedding.  I also have items (many not available on Etsy) up on eBay with the Best Offer option, so feel free to make me an offer!  I do charge shipping and handling on eBay, as they take a greater percentage of my sale than Etsy does, so I can’t afford to offer free shipping there.  I’m hoping to find time to add more items to each by the end of the week, but we’ll see how that goes!

I’ve been working on a few other plans as well, that I will implement after the wedding.  I want to start Weekly Wrap-Up posts that let you know what I’ve done that week to work toward my dreams, like I did in my last post.  I want to offer a consignment service to other artists who only make a few things and don’t want to go through the hassle of setting up their own store.  I’m looking at other venues where I can sell my items.  I’m considering another crowdfunding campaign to help with the Reconnect and Redesign phases I have planned.  And I still have all these ideas in my head that need to be translated into new products.

So you will be seeing more of me, I promise, but if I disappear a bit between now and the wedding, don’t be too surprised.  I’m just tending to what needs tending. 🙂
