a day of tedious tasks + cyber monday

November 29, 2010 |  Category:   the biz

Holiday production is officially on! Mark and I spent Saturday cleaning and organizing our office/supply room and Sunday was spent cutting, ironing, folding, tying ribbons, piping hearts, and packaging for almost 12 straight hours. So much of the business is broken down into repetitive, tedious tasks. Mark will spend hours upon hours scooping cookie dough or cutting cookies out with a cookie cutter, sinking the metal shape into the dough a thousand times, or stuffing hundreds of marshmallow cubes into cello bags. I’ll often wrap a hundred brownies in 1 sitting or tie tiny little bows onto hundreds of wedding favors. It’s mindless, tedious stuff, but you get into a rhythm and just as soon as you swear that you never want to do it again, the cycle begins all over.

Thanks to all who participated in my Black Friday weekend sale on posters and prints, and for “cyber Monday”, we have a coupon code for 10% off your entire order for 1 day only at our website. Enter CYBERMONDAY10 at checkout. Happy Monday!

    Sometimes I like tedious repetitive tasks. Once you get that rhythm, it can be kind of relaxing. I don’t know about thousands of tiny bows though. 🙂

    Sometimes mindless tasks are a refreshing change from having your brain on overdrive all the time. Enjoy the holidays and all the crazy that comes with it:)
