An amazing sale and an amazing rant

This has been one annoying weekend. Yes, I did manage to catch up on a lot of sleeping (one Gerard Butler dream included, which is always nice) but apart for that I got about 5% of my to do list completed, not to mention the fact I worked 8 hours on cleaning my studio yesterday producing 4 full garbage bags and muscle cramps in my thighs and back, but the damn room is still so messy you can hardly see the floor or the desktop. It drives me nuts, and I didn't even start rearranging my bedroom. No, I am not pleased at all.

On top of that, I tried making a little Trudie video but each and every take turned out crooked, with Trudie at the very edge of the frame. This is the best one, God help me.

In short I am pissed, but what else is new? That stomach flu I had a few weeks ago messed up my entire hormonal system, and I am in constant PMS for weeks now. Too much information? Well, I am also annoyed by the lack of sales on my shop, or rather - the odd concentration of non-paid orders by Israeli and US customers. I am starting to get paranoid about this. I don't know what's worse - having no sales at all, or having many hopes of sales but no payments (not to worry, I don't start work or send anything before being paid - but it is still disappointing and upsetting). The total sum of the non paid for orders is over 200$!!

In desperate hope of reviving my shop a bit, I am throwing a big Flutterbutt sale this weekend: All Flutterbutts are 20% off till Monday the 20th.

Come to think of it, the 20th is my dad's birthday - All the more reason to be pissed (he died 6 years ago). And my mom has a gangrene in her jaw thanks to one of the anti-cancer drugs she is taking. In short - I am not happy at all.

I am not very good at the marketing bit on this post am I? The words "sale" and "gangrene" don't work so well together. I better stop typing.

Blogging is a good way to vent - shows us you're human :). And 5% of the to do list is better than 0%.
Hope your mom is better soon!
