Boutique update #3

So, this is it- Deadline time.  The boutique is actually this weekend and I have to have everything set up tomorrow night.  It’s do or die time folks, and well, I’m dying. 😉  Not literally, but I have this horrible cough that won’t let me sleep, which is sucking all my energy, which leaves me frustrated and disappointed that I didn’t get everything done that I wanted to.
I’m hoping that no one will notice when they come.  You won’t, will you?  You’ll just look over all the lovely things I did manage to get done and smile and ooh and aah.  Right?  Thanks. 🙂
So- final tally of things I made in the last four weeks for the boutique:

3 fabric Happy Birthday banners
4 Felt Happy Birthday banners
4 sets of Halloween figurines
6 Felt EEK banners
4 Wavy ruffle pillows
3 Bat Pillows
1 orange side tie pillow
1 cream side tie pillow

I guess when I list it out like that- it’s not too shabby.  It’s a lot of hours and a lot of work.  I’m still debating if I am going to do more of these or just forget about it.  I need deadlines, but this might be too much pressure for my family right now.  I guess we’ll see how it pans out.  If I sell lots of my inventory- it just might make up for the crazy that has been my life the last couple weeks.  Of course it doesn’t help that last week was when my husband decided to start framing and finishing our basement.  I’m thrilled- since I’ll finally have a dedicated work space, but the timing could not have been worse.  😛
So, I’m off to price everything, get my number on it all, and figure out how to display everything so it’s irresistible.  Wish me luck. 🙂

    It is always so hard right before a sale! Late, late nights and a messy house! And I always forget how long it actually takes to price everything! But you're gonna do great! Best of luck to you!

    Good luck! You should definitely be proud of all that you've done! The fact that you have done ANY of this sets you apart from the rest of us who sometimes *think* about it and then decide it's too much work 🙂
