I’m still plugging away at Tiny Tyrant Yarns.
As my own and #1 Son’s birthday falls in Memorial Day week I’m running a sale until June 01.
I can’t believe my firstborn is six in six days!
I’ve sold 12 items now, and my first pins have been shared today! Pins I created!
I still don’t really understand Pinterest, but I’m stupidly pleased about this ☺️
I’m building up a small collection of new hanks to put up in the shop once the sale ends.
I’ve purchased an electric ice crusher to try and simulate snow as I prefer the look of the fine ice to chunks.
And I’ve created two hanks already using her.
And blimey has she already saved me time and effort!
Overall, for a totally brand new business, I think I’m doing okay.
Having used my shop/business as my
excuse reason for lack of posting over the last week, I felt a fuller update on that was probably in order.
First off, my shop is Here
Please have a browse. I value feedback, and if the muse strikes you, please do make a purchase.
On that topic, I am now up to eight sales. Again, this might not sound like much, but that’s nearly $200 and I am so grateful.
So, everything that is in my shop is ready to ship, and I am currently working on this week’s new stock.
The nature of my processes means that I cannot dye more than two hanks per batch, and I have to wait for the ice to regenerate (Gallifeyan ice anyone?) so it’s a slow but steady feed of fresh stock.
The weather was so glorious today I was actually able to completely dry both hands outside and within three hours!
I’m also working on a new set:
These pinks are developing an orange hue as the ice melts. I think the results are going to be extremely interesting.
I must admit that I am still not keen on the large flashes of white that can be produced, but as I’m not using them myself, I have to learn to step away from my
rut comfort zone.
I am trying!
It’s been months of planning, building stock, blood, sweat, tears and self doubt; but as of this evening, I am thrilled to announce:
Yes, I’ve done it. I’ve officially put myself, and my creations, out there for all the world to see and (hopefully) admire. It’s thrilling, terrifying and wonderful. And the best thing?
I’ve had two orders already!!!
Please note that those prices do include postage!
But it’s a great start.
Thank you to my customers
Eeeeeeeeeeeeee I have customers!!!!!
