I took three days off work, which really isn't a lot, but it was much needed. I have a lot to do tonight before one of my very best friends in the whole (next to Doug, that is) is coming to stay with us for a week. We're going to put him to work helping us fill the 70+ orders we have in queue.
We are driving up to LA tomorrow to drop off a wholesale order for a friend of my cousin, Alek. I am really excited to hand deliver them! I love seeing peoples faces when they get the glasses. The glasses in the photo below were for another wholesale order. More on that later.
I am quickly learning the ins and outs of making a product that people wear on their face. They're not always happy. Even though we love what we do, and I think we're pretty damn good at it, making something that sits so boldly there on your face is tricky. Sometimes people don't like the way that it looks on them after they get it. Sometimes they don't take care of their belongings. Sometimes we make a mistake. It happens. Gasp! But when I get an email from an unhappy customer, it's hard for me to not take it personally. We really do try our best to send out quality product, but we are only human. So please, internet world, send nice emails if something it not perfect. We are much more prone to help promptly when kind words are shared.
I have a few major cakes coming up early next week and it's nerve racking thinking about them, but I am trying to stay busy and not worry about work to come. Instead I am sewing, packing, printing, shipping, sweeping, and the like. Life is good.
I will be back soon. Even if just for a check in. I love you all!
