So here's what's happening at Wind Rose Fiber Studio today:
Today I need to order more Jacquard dye for my inventory. I wait until I've run out of one color and then I order. You have to order in Units of 3 with a minimum order of $50. I sell Jacquard Acid Dyes because I use them to dye my wool and soy silk plus other fibers. I became a dealer so I could keep my prices low and to offer it to people who like to dye their own. It's not a product that is typically found in craft stores.
I also have three different handpun yarns in various stages of production including the one you see here. I call this one "Moonlit Dance". I always try to provide a decent amount of yardage with each design so I have one more skein on the way. I have three more skeins of "Buried Treasure" to produce and a third design that is a beaded yarn form my Mother-in-law's birthday.
Happy Birthday Kathleen! (you've been blogged : ) So I guess today's goal is to keep advancing these. I'd like to at least get the fiber carded for "Buried Treasure" and to finish the beading for Kathleen's yarn. I'll post a pic of hers when it's ready.
Finally, I want to use my new software, Pixelmator, to design a gift bag label. I like the idea of my store being a one stop shop, so in addition to designing gift bags for the upcoming holiday season, I would like to offer a customized gift bag with tissue paper and a To:/From: tag for purchase year round.
Well, I think that's my day. It goes without saying that I'll be doing these things while taking care of daily chores around the house, working out (40 laps a day in the pool), gathering clothes for the donation truck that's coming tomorrow and playing with my kids. Whoa Baby! :D
