addy, look what Santa brought me for Christmas! A high fever and a slipped disk! :D
That's the short version of my past couple of months and I don't think I'll be publishing the long version ever! I don't think that hearing a girl moaning about her troubles is in anyone's top priorities ;)
Thank you all for checking up on me and seeking to find whether I was all right or kidnapped by the faery folk :) The truth lies somewhere in between and I sure hope this very, very long hiccup is now over and done with. I may try to overcompensate for a while now so that I can go into a good tempo and regular posting habits again so do check back often!
The good and bright parts of the story from where we left off go something like this... :
The pre-Christmas sale was a resounding success! It showed me clearly that everyone appreciated the savings at the most intense spending time of the year and also maybe that everyone thought that my prices should have been lower all along...? More on that later.
The resounding success of the sale brought a resounding disaster too in my unprepared small business! Let me give you some simple math to explain the problem. I swear it's very simple math ;)
At that time, preparing 1 order took me about 1 hour if I was out of stock on goodies. At that time I also ran out of stock on goodies in the first week of the sale! :D I used to get a few orders a week before the sale which meant a few hours of work per week to prepare them. During the sale I got between 7 to 17 orders per day!!! My whole business plan broke down to a jumbled mess of stress and panic! :D Oh what fun it was!?!
I'll tell you how I unjumbled the mess in my next post later tonight. Tempo tempo!! :D Till then, just to say that i'm so happy to be back and i missed you all ♥♥ sweet loving people ♥♥ !! :)
Warm Bear hugs from Mr Bear and much love from me....
