Cardboard boxes and knuckle-busters
I took a big-girl step.
After tons of great advice from my EtsyFest group, I bought a credit card imprinter.
It’s just one of those cheap knuckle-busters, but still. It’s a pretty huge step for me. I’m going to take credit cards at my next show, and it makes me feel all fancy and professional. Like this whole Fat Orange Cat thing is…legitimate.
I put the box that it came in on the floor, and Nola promptly climbed on it and has been sleeping there ever since. We have a couch, a chaise lounge, quilts, pillows, a soft bed, and even piles of fabric, and she chooses a small cardboard box with pointy corners to lie on.
See how her paw is hanging off the edge? That’s because she doesn’t fit. Fat ass.
I’ve taken a short break from sewing to work on some paper goods. Specifically, sets of note cards. I need some items to sell for under $10 at the craft show, so I bought blank cards and colored envelopes rather than cutting and assembling my own like I normally do, and I’m just doing the applique design on the front of the card.
The less labor that goes into the project, the more comfortable I feel charging less money. And I definitely need some different price points, so this works well.
And a few sets of apple cards. I love the polka-dots.
