So, I’d been touting our upcoming tutorial on social media, as Tutorial Tuesday. And then…yeesh, I didn’t actually post it on Facebook until Wednesday! Oh well, it couldn’t be helped. Our Word Press program kept crashing. But tech help arrived and we were able to get it up and running. So, click on the Tutorial link at the top of the page for The Absolute Beginner, a lined tote project. For those of you who don’t know, yes it is me in the photo. Sorry. Younger, cuter, more photogenic friends , family members and future family members (yes, that means you, Julie) were unavailable for modeling duties.
We’ve really been busy these last couple of weeks. We’re trying to get Bagmaker Supply off the ground. George has been working on applications for our website, I’ve been trying to complete several tutorials. I’ve also been ordering new products. That’s, of course, the fun part! Browsing through catalogs, both on and offline. Trying to imagine new, interesting ways to use various hardware items. Spending money. But trying to do so prudently, imagining what I would want to buy, trying to figure out what other people want to buy. Negotiating with manufacturers, trying to always find the best value. We want to be able to offer wholesale pricing to our customers. Occasionally averting disaster. I very nearly ordered ten dozen purse handles from a supplier abroad that, as it turns out, has a reputation for often not actually shipping orders once they have your money. Live and learn! I think that this incident has taught me to research everything very carefully before I commit. I’m gearing up for Tutorial Tuesday, which will start tomorrow.
