Do you know we do wedding favors? We’ve been doing them since our first year when a customer asked about favors, and now the hearts and pillowy packages of marshmallow cubes are the most popular favor requested. These are some recent(ish) favors we’ve sent out.
So…in exactly 2 weeks we’ll be on an airplane headed to our annual August Seattle trip to visit the in-laws, but this time we’re tacking on Northern California first to go visit my brother and his new baby (yes, I have a brother!) and some old friends. I haven’t been to San Francisco in 15 years and it was just a day stop when Mark and I drove across country to move to New York, but prior to that, the last time I spent any amount of time in the city was in 1990 during one of my many traveling adventures. We’ll have 4 full days there and no doubt will cram as much in as possible. Any thoughts on things we should hit?
We’ll be away for nearly 3 weeks which is the longest we’ve been away from the business. We’re nervous about leaving the cat, who is still hanging in there despite his illness and his occasional bad days, and we’re nervous about shutting the business down for 3 weeks and not making any income during that time (a HUGE compromise when you don’t get paid vacations from an employer). But we’ve made a promise to travel with the girls as long as it’s something we can swing financially without too much sacrifice and it’ll give Mark a nice break before we regroup for the Fall and the holidays. In the meantime, we’d like to keep Mark busy in the kitchen for the next 10 days, so we’re having a little summer sale (if you follow us on Facebook or Twitter, then you may have already heard). Use code SUMMERSALE11 on either our website or our Etsy shop and save 15% off of your total order until August 12th. After the 14th, our shop will be closed until September 2nd.
ps. thanks for all your comments on the whole ad thing. You know I appreciate your comments, right? And if I could get threaded comments to work on here, it’d be so much easier to respond to each of your comments, but as it is, I don’t always get a chance to respond back. I haven’t decided what I’m going to do about ads yet, and given my lack of motivation to do anything these days, probably nothing. How’s that for a lame answer? I think this vacation can’t come soon enough…
