here is my wonderful, fabulous, amazing, (and, obviously, beautiful) "office manager", rachel. or mernie, depending what day it is. she has saved my life and my business. i don't know what i'd do without her, organizing, making spreadsheets, filing, packaging, babysitting, she is just incredible. THANK YOU, mernie, a million times!
sam at the post office assured me that if i had all of my international orders in the mail by tomorrow, they would reach their destinations by christmas. and that is going to happen. yay! now i just have 60 picks and 10 other pieces to get in the mail by next friday and i will have accomplished this monumental task!
