It's not as bad as it sounds. This order is for Christmas gifts, technically not needed for what, another 3 months? Fortunate for me, this customer (and very good friend) knows me, and plans much better than I do. Thus the early order for something needed by the holidays. These various cards have been inspired by many layouts from various publications as well as samples in the 2008 Fall/Winter Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog.
I might just be the slowest stamper ever. Or, to put a positive spin on it, the best card making procrastinator. :-). I received an order for cards about 3 .... or 4 .... or maybe 5 months ago. Here they are, complete at last. All 64 of them.
Not pictured is the pile of extras I made for future card sets to sell. Of course, will I ever actually sell them? It's not that I can't part with them. Believe me, with piles of cards laying around, it would be awesome to get some sold to free up some stamp room space. I simply can't set prices to my cards. Does anyone else have this problem? Seriously? I value my work, and always peruse store bought cards to check out their pricing. It seems as though the cheapest price for anything handmade with only 1-2 layers is at least $3.50, and upwards of $6. Most of my cards have a minimum of 3 layers, not to mention ribbon and embellishments.
Enough pondering. I'm off to prep for Saturday's Christmas Card class. Are you registered yet? Contact me via email now to register.
