I miss blogging and reading blogs all night. Now I'm folding, printing, designing into the wee hours of the night instead. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE it. I'm just really overwhelmed. I'm going to have to create some sort of schedule, rather than just sneaking off to my favorite room every second that I can to work on orders!
Checking my email is so much more exciting these days! A new sale?! I immediately jump up and down and run around the house. It's just an amazing feeling when someone wants to actually buy something I make.
Who doesn't like compliments? Okay, so maybe I like them more than most...some sort of personal issue I have, but boy...this new gig is really making me feel loved! I am talking to customers everyday who are so excited about my products and tell me how great my work is. I am connecting with other crazy party-obsessed mommas who start planning their kids' birthdays way before I do! (I have a lollipop customer who wants them for December!)
I started this business (I guess since I am actually selling something you can call it that now?) on a whim. It just seemed like the next step after blogging and getting a little following. Throw my products out there and see what happens?! I really don't have a plan! I have no systems in place and I am totally winging it. But that's okay, I can figure it out, step-by-step....long night after long night.....
Some of the LOVE I've been feeling:
Navy Sou, an amazing photographer in California wrote this blog post about The TomKat Studio yesterday. I want to kiss her for her glowing post! CLICK HERE
Kate's lollipop party was featured on this new party website, Creative Parties & Showers yesterday.
I was asked yesterday by Thoughtfully Simple if they can post Kate's party, as well!
Here's an email from a customer, the same one who emailed me to tell me she was screaming when she opened the file of the proofs for her products:
Hi Kim, I received my pkg on Friday and it's TDF!!! I'm hiding it from Bella in a drawer and I find myself sneaking in there regularly just to "look" at everything again! I LOVE ALL OF IT!!! My BFF received her invite yesterday and LOVED it!! I can't wait for the rest of our family to begin receiving the invites - the calls will be pouring in over those!! Thank you SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!! - Adelina
This is crazy! All I know is I constantly find myself SMILING at my computer....is that weird?
