|So small, yet I hate it so much.|
In case you're the one person who has been living under a rock and didn't get my Facebook status updates, 'like' requests for my new page, emails announcing my new store, or one of the many, many instant message updates, I got the Etsy store ,VaVaVaVoom, up and running! What, haven't been there yet? Stop everything and go there. Right now. Here's the link: VaVaVaVoom! .Go ahead, save it as one of your favorites. You know you're going to want to look again.
Ta da, here's my store banner!
So that's why I've been missing in action for a little while. It's been a one person sweatshop in here; sewing, then taking pictures, posting it online, and then obsessively hitting the refresh button to see how many views I've gotten. You can see how that's time consuming, right? But the great part (I think?) is that I already have enough orders to keep me busy for quite a while. But don't get me wrong- order something, please! But since I opened the store a little over a week ago, my best friend Roughie has been researching and scouting out fabric and generally managing my minute-to-minute living to make sure I'm not taking more than a five minute dinner break and that all lunch hours and work breaks are spent behind the sewing machine. And crying does no good with her. She makes me work an extra fifteen minutes if she hears tears.
Well, a little while ago, Roughie found these Jon Jons that look like the outfit Mickey Mouse wears and they sell like crazy and look pretty easy to make. So I take a look, and like a total and complete idiot, go "Yeah, that DOES look easy to make. I'll do it!". Please replay that phrase in your head using Goofy's voice and follow it up with his customary 'yuck yuck' laugh, and that's about as stupid and naive as I sounded. I went and bought the fabric and pattern, cut it all out, and started assembly. And guess what. There's a reason that lady on Etsy gets $45 for these things; they're a pain in the ass! And I didn't even sew in the snaps in the crotch. People are just gonna have to work a little harder to change their kid. Or they can just let the diarrhea flow like hot lava like Echo in our ride home from Tennessee .
|I'm off to buy some fabric! This is gonna be so easy! Yuck yuck!|
|I wonder what my father-in-law is doing this weekend....|
She can look like a princess without sweating like a whore in church (thank you Kim for my new favorite phrase).
Also, Winnie the Pooh shirts for little boys and little Winnie the Pooh dresses for girls (new movie coming out, thank you Rough for the tip and supplies).
A new Ariel shirt for women,
and a Pirate Princess shirt for women also in black, white, and hot pink.
And to go along with the shirts, I'm going to start making little matching cell phone/credit card wristlets so that you don't have to leave your valuables in the diaper bag while you're waiting two hours in line for It's a Small World. I should probably make a pocket for the Zanax. This stuff is gonna be so cute you're gonna crap your pants, so be sure to go first and check the store often! And please, please, PLEASE, for the love of all things holy, NO MORE SUGGESTIONS! I am obviously just too dumb to say no.
