Yesterday was my last day on Etsy Showcase and was the last day for orders to get to their destinations on time using USPS first class mail. As a result I ended up with a record sales day. People were buying in multiples, I think v2 encourages people to do that since they don't have to wait for an adjusted invoice.
Yesterday I discovered gapingvoid: how to be creative
and I have been reading it and finding it quite inspiring. I even printed out the list and taped it above my desk. It pushed me along to finish the drawing part of my whirlygigs block and I have started carving it today. I would like to get a good amount done on it today and tomorrow before my trip to Florida. I applied to a gallery that a LJ contact referred me too. I am pretty hopeful about it. I also treated myself to a fancy brayer from McClains that I have been eying for ages. It should be here by the time I get back from Florida.
Speaking of Florida, last night I showed Jon how to send out orders for me while I am gone. I don't expect a lot of sales that week because holiday shopping is basically over and I won't be listing more than once a day. But just in case I would like to be able to have things shipped. From now until the 19th I am upgrading all orders of $30 or more to Priority Mail (domestic only) and all orders of $50 or more internationally.
