It’s been a busy few weeks…

I know I haven’t blogged in a while, things have been a little crazy around here!  I gave a week’s notice at my job & a few days later got an 3 orders for super hero capes that I had to have done over a 3 day period.  Normally it wouldn’t be such a big deal but they were orders for 4, 12 & 2!  That’s right 18 custom capes with 3 days to get it done.  I got the first 4 done late one night & was able to deliver them the next day (local) and get the fleece for the other orders.  That night I got home around 8 from shopping and got all 12 of the others done & ready for shipping.  The next day I finished the other 2 & got them out as well.  I don’t know how the heck I managed it because I was busy most of the days… so I worked on them late at night.  None the less they are DONE & there are going to be 18 very happy children over the next few months!  I also managed to get sets cut out & partially done for the kids… I am hoping to get them done today… they are just so close, but I got pooped out on capes for a week!

First was a set of capes only for one of the moms in my twins club… her twins are only a few months younger then the girls…

Then there was the massive order, what the heck was I thinking?  She had contacted me weeks back but forgot to confirm her order until a few days before I HAD to have them shipped out.  It worked out though!

The birthday boys set…

Then for his 11 very lucky little friends…

Then the last order that was a last minute birthday gift that had to go to Canada.  I was able to very carefully get 2 of these in the small flat rate priority box!!!!  They almost didn’t fit!!!  Fleece doesn’t squish as much as you would think.
