On My Desk

Well what a week and it is only Wednesday. Thank-you all for your lovely comments from my last post, there I was declaring my computer bloggy love and he stood me up at the alter. How is that for appreciation?!? I tried to turn my computer on on Sunday and nothing apparently my motherboard was mothered. They fixed it yesterday arvo, all except for my internet - YEAH THANKS FOR THAT. I rang them for help and they told me to download more files - Hello NO INTERNET. At least it is all sorted now and only lost 2 days work, which is a bit of a bummer as a sub-contractor I don't get paid, my google readers in the 300's and I have some many photos of sewing that I need to compile it is not funny. I did though enjoy my days off, they are few and far between. I took Poppy shopping, did some sewing in daylight, had long walks and hot chocolates - I am threatening to quit now - it was great fun.
So what's that on my desk today, I hear you ask - orders, for me, for my clothes - WOO HOO!!!! At least this has helped my missed work. The party for my official Bug and Pop launch went really well and it was good to practice on friends, even if I felt like I was walking down the street naked. I even had my first referral party this morning, I was so nervous I couldn't even keep breakie down, and I have another 2 lined up. So here is the plug, I am selling boy's pants for $25 and girls dresses for $28-32 and skirt/tops for $23-25. I use my base designs and hand make them to suit your material requests and sizing. If you live in the beautiful Melbourne town you too could have me and my wares in your very own home (try to contain yourselves) and you get 1 piece of clothing FREE and 10% off the rest of your order. I even bring homemade cupcakes, so please email or comment if my shameless self-promotion appeals to you (this doesn't come naturally to me).
More desky love at Kootoyo. Thanks Kirsty for the drink too, as you can see I can use it!

I was wondering what happened to you (isn't it freaky when you notice that someone hasn't blogged for a few days so you think there's something wrong)!
Congratulations on the first lot of party sales...that is so fantastic! Self promote away my dear...

I've been wondering how the Bug and Pop party went. Sounds like it has been a great success!! Hope you get loads more orders - your stuff is fantastic.

Yes, congratultions Cindy!

It's funny this being shy and nervous about your craft thing but wanting to do it all the same. I too have found the support I have received on-line invaluable; I really think most women work well in groups, with the internet it's like sitting around the table working away with a group of chums!

Yay for you!!! You GO girl.

Good to see you're back on the air.I feel like I've lost an arm or something when I don't have internet access.

Congrats of your first successful party! Yay!
It must be such a rewarding feeling- selling your own product of hard work. All the best for all your future parties.
