Ahhhh, Monday

Hello new week! :)

I know Monday is the universally complained about day.. but I love me some Mondays. I get a bit of a day off, and I love starting fresh in the week. I have big plans for this week! I am still working on the pile of orders (slowly but surely chipping away) and getting ready to re-open the shop next Monday. I wish I has a business advisor/someone to help me set up a better working system.. I'm starting on inventory numbers and excel sheets this week.

I've been painting like crazy, and working on new products. I tried out a cupcake painting just to see if I could.. and was pretty pleased with the results :) I am going to be doing as many as I possibly can this week. Here's a few pictures of what I've done so far:

Other than painting and trying to organize my life.. I have been busy with the end of Summer. PEI Summer is so amazing, but it's so insanely busy. I am looking forward to fall :) Some of our best friends are arriving from Toronto one week from today to spend a little time with us... I can't wait - but have to ready my house for guests! They have a cute little white dog so I must "dog proof" the house somehow!

Christmas is coming... it's time to think about Fall/Winter craft shows! Are you getting ready yet? What are you up to? I'd love to know where everyone else is in terms of holiday prep. I feel behind already and it's only just September!

ALSO: What do you think I should sell paintings for? They are 8x10 - I was thinking around $40?

Hi Chelsea,

Those cupcakes are so pretty :-)

Isn't it scary how it is already September... and Christmas is just round the corner...

I have so much I should be doing for halloween before christmas!

I wish you luck with the speadsheets :-)

Hi Chelsea,

I don't think $40 is unreasonable on the ADORABLE cupcakes. They are really cute! I'm glad to hear you're making headway with your paperwork and orders too! As for what I'm doing to prepare for the holidays --- I'm behind too. I did order new stamps but they haven't arrived yet. Once they do I'll get busy. :o)

Chelsea, these are gorgeous! I'd pay $40 - my girls would love something like that in their rooms.
Good luck reorganising the shop - glad it's you and not me LOL.
