mondays...

... well i guess i LIED in my last post, i CAN lift a 50 box especially one that the US MAIL HAD TO RETURN TO ME B/C THEY LOST ALL THE FORMS ON THE BOX. ugh, sometimes shipping is the most irritating part of this business. anyhow, the box was on its way overseas but on the way to chicago, someone tried to take out one of the customs forms (there are 4 in all) and TORE the envelope and so ALL the forms were gone. thankfully the warehouse puts a copy of the invoice on the outside and that was the only way that they knew to return the box to us.





...anyhow, after arguing with the mail carrier, showing him the $225 we paid in shipping i drove to the post office and spoke to the post master. now that was an interesting conversation.





me: " we paid for this package to go EXPRESS and here it is and the documents are missing b/c the envelope was torn"





PM: " why did you use that envelope, it was bound to tear?"





me: "um BECAUSE THAT IS THE ENVELOPE THAT THE US MAIL ISSUED TO US FOR THE INTERNATIONAL FORMS" (hello?)





anyhow - like 1 hour later and i am finally out of the PO - after filling out all the customs forms by hand again. and the package was hopefully on its way AGAIN.





we are buckling down this week for the container arrival. the first set of stamps have been packed but they were so well received, we had to reorder (a couple of times over). the rubons will be done next week and 95% of our stuff will be here this week.





on the non - MR side, here is my sweet baby noah sitting in a bowl we bought the other day:





LOL - he is such a good sport for wacky photos!

so hang on tight, our products are coming. we are shipping them out as fast as we can as soon as we can get the items inventoried and ready to go!

i have a LO to share in a couple days for a website where i am a guest designer in march - i will link to that soon!
