Busy busy busy!

Since I sold out of mama pads in just a matter of hours after advertising my store here on LJ, I decided to bite the bullet and make a whole lot more! My serge stitch has been chewing up some of my things, so some of them got tossed in the Miracle Diapers box, but most of them are good enough to sell as seconds. I can't wait till I get enough funds together to get this stupid sewing machine fixed!

I also made some BKT doublers and regular terry doublers, and some new batches of wipes. I'm aching to get those L and XL dipes up, but with my zigzag stitch all out of wack it's just not gonna happen. Soon, though!

I had to raise my shipping costs. My printer is out of ink, so I can't use Paypal's free delivery confirmation, and I have to buy it at the PO, which costs a whopping 75 cents per package! I've added that cost to each item, but I will take it back down once I can print out Paypal's shipping labels.

So much rides on the money I'm making from selling. Not only do I need things to pull my business together completely, but I have several big packages of my personal stuff still in my friend Russell's closet in Texas that I need to have shipped to me. I'm also hoping to save up for a car. This whole idea is mostly just a fun hobby for me, but at the same time, it would be really great if I did make some money from it.

I'm thinking about hand-drawing some business cards on pieces of posterboard I have left over from making my diaper patterns. That's another thing I need money for....but I'd like to have some cards to hand out at a music festival I'm going to next weekend. I'll probably just draw a mushroom, write a quick note about what I sell, and put my website address at the bottom. 

I took pictures of all my new stock today and just got done editing them for my store. I'll be listing them later tonight after Jameson goes to bed and I can fully concentrate. But here's a sneak peek at some of the new things I have to offer:

I just found your ad on LJ, went to Etsy, and - NICE WORK! I'm starting my own business as well - adoption-related scrapbooking services.
I'm a professional writer and information designer. I would happily design you some business cards in exchange for something you make. Or, you can get free cards at VistaPrint.com, I think.
Good luck!
