Store Launch – Possibly Moved Up

November 17, 2009

Alright a lot of items have been “pre-listed” on Etsy. Meaning that I have listed the majority of the items I have ready for sale and their descriptions but not pictures and the listings have not been activated so the public will not see them. That had to be an incredibly grammatically incorrect sentence.

I really want not only the launch to be successful but the store as well so I am trying my best to present all items in the best possible ways.

There are a few concerns that there will be last minute problems that keep the store from opening on time so I will be trying to take more pictures tomorrow without the planned model, Elizabeth K., to insure that Pro-Portional Designs will open on or before November 25th, 2009. If I do open early the launch date will most likely be Monday, November 23rd, 2009.

The reason for a lot of this being put off is that there is a particular item I made and it is not my size which is what spawned my decision to have/use a model (who it should fit but I will not know until the date she comes for us to take pictures.)

Also, I am very uncertain about shipping. So right now all shipping costs have been estimated by using USPS’s online shipping calculator. As mentioned in my store policies customers will be charged a shipping and handling fee. The handling fee is pretty much to cover the packaging.

That covers most of what is going on for now.

Things Have Been Better

November 14, 2009

. . . and indeed they have.

First, I finally tried out the two cameras I had pulled specifically to use for work for the shop and they both weren’t working. I finally have one up and running but the other is still giving me just a bit of grief.

Second, I just spent a few days making bags. After REPEATED runs through the washing machine AND boiling – everything white IS NOT FELTED.

Third, I feel like all the pictures I took look like poop. Will have to wait until the OmNomNomStudios model, Elizabeth K. – is free.

Fourth, I am feeling more than incredibly nervous about the opening. Worry? Launch fail.

Now that this bleak blog has been written and is ready for post it’s off to begin a new bag that does NOT contain the “colour” white so that it will felt correctly.
