One of the hardest parts about running your own biz, I've decided as of yesterday, is figuring out when to do what. Should I make labels first, then finish the orders? Finish up wholesale orders, take pictures, or and then go to the post office??? WHEN DO I EAT MY ENGLISH MUFFIN. Anyway, what ends up happening is that I sit on the couch staring at Gray's Anatomy, trying to figure out what would be the most efficient order of tasks, which is funny because that's not efficient at all!
Anyway, maybe if I list what I need to do today I'll stick to a schedule better.
1. Ben is making hard boiled eggs. Eat one.
2. Stay on couch, make shipping labels for all orders going out today (tip: it helps motivate you to finish all of your orders because the shipping labels are done!)
3. Make orders for today:
a. blue crystal necklace
c. bike w hearts
d. mini honeycomb
c. pack drusy ring (wait to hear size???)
And after those are done, work on DC tie bars for Ginger Root, send a honeycomb ring to that store, finish those white drusy heart rings and email people, oooh that black pink heart ring (don't mess up the hearts!!!), finish that mini camera....ok!
I also started some darling little drusy pendants yesterday with pearls on top that I cannot wait to finish, so hopefully those will be up later! I finished photos for my Fab.com sale coming up, too- Julia was kind enough to sit on a porch and let me take pics! Here's a sneak peak:
soooooo i hope this was interesting. if not, tough cookies! bye!
Oh hellooooooo! First and foremost, I wanted to thank everyone who entered my contest and did such a great job spreading the word- I really really appreciate it! And will definitely be having a new one soon!
In other news, I haven't blogged in forever. And I'm terribly sorry. I'm sure everyone is devastated. Allow me to fill you in on recent events:
I just got back from a trip home to mass. with the hubby, which was great, except for a little stomach bug/food poisoning incident that sort of ruined one night and half a day. But still great!
I've been having a few little wholesale orders here and there which is a real thrill, and I love doing. And have a bunch of orders to catch up on now. AND am going to be doing Fab again shortly with some new items, so I need to finish all of those pieces to photograph.
OH and my wallet was stolen last week, but I finally have all of my new cards back and such. So I have to do a bunch of stuff to make sure my info everywhere is correct.
This is more of a to-do list than an interesting update on my life. Sorry!
I don't know! It's basically summer in DC now- winter and spring sort of skipped us. Which is great! More skirts and dresses to wear! Though I did just buy a heavy pair of BLACK madewell jeans, which I love. They are high waisted and sort of tight on my stomach so I always feel like I'm full, which means I don't eat so much. So that's sort of like a little diet secret. Anyway, they are WARM and aren't the best for hot summer days I don't think. But I do love them. and now it makes me only want to buy expensive fancy clothing. But all I really want still are Target dresses.
Ok. So now that everyone knows how crazy I really am, I'm going to get my ess ache (H?) eye tee together and get the day started! Who's with me?!!!?!!!?
Since you need SOME pictures in a blog post. here is one of Ben holding a weird aligator mask that was in his house-
OK gang, it's happening. I'm having a contest. And honestly, I don't really know how to do it. So we'll learn together!
First off, here is what's up for grabs: a brand new Rachel Pfeffer Design, Artemis' Arrow! (Or Katniss, whatever you prefer).
That's right! This necklace is so new it hasn't even been released yet!! It's not even ONLINE yet! WOWOWOWOWOWOW.
Basically, the more "tasks" you complete, the more times your name will be entered into the proverbial hat. But I might end up writing down names on actually slips of papers and actually putting them in a hat. Because I don't really know how else to do it.
You get one point for visiting my website, www.rachelpfeffer.com, and telling me your favorite item!
(Comment on this page with your email address and a note telling me)
You get one point for tweeting this contest, linking to this blog page!
(Again, comment on this page with your email and and twitter handle saying you entered!)
You get one point for joining my facebook page http://www.facebook.com/rachelpfefferdesigns
and writing on the wall saying hi to me! (and then comment on this page with your email and a note saying you did so!)
And lastly, if you have a blog, you get two points for blogging about the contest! Just leave a comment on this page with your name and email and blog address!
AND if you don't have a blog, don't be sad! You can get your extra two points by posting it on your facebook page. Again, let me know in the comment section what you did!
This will go on until next Wednesday, the 14th! After that I will tally up everyone's points, and the more points you have, the more often your name will be put into the pool! Right? Does that sound logical? I think so.
Soooo gang, I'm trying to make my product photos look more profesh. So I am putting, or attempting to put, all of the items on a solid white background (slash photoshop my way there). Do they look good? OR weird and sterile?
