The song on repeat this week here at stelabird headquarters is.....
Paris by Friendly Fires.
It's quite awesome.
Some time ago I ordered these flower cabs
Big & beautiful. And I finally turned them into earrings!
I'm a big fan of big accessories
These are pretty comfortable to wear, they don't weigh down my ear.
and then Riley and I got a little photo booth happy
what a creep
Say hello to a new Owl snuggly! He was created last night
Also did you hear that the Commission has voted for a "Stay of Enforcement of Certain Testing and Certification Requirements of CPSIA"?! This means that they are proposing a 1 year suspension of the burden of lead testing and certification while they take more time to review the rules and plan enforcement! So we get to sell our handmade toys & other children's goodies for at least another year! I'm sure they will get it right next year and we can continue to spread the joy that is handmade.
Please go here for more info!
So some time ago I was visiting the etsy forums and I came across a thread about emailing the buyers after they've made a purchase. Do they email the buyer letting them know they've received payment and when it will ship? And buyers: do you like receiving these emails? To my surprise I saw that a few people didn't send emails and also buyers didn't like receiving them.
Personally, I love getting emails letting me know they've received my payment and when it's expected to ship. But I hardly get them! And it drives me crazy! I'm such a worry wart!
And because of this, I send emails. I thank them, I let them know when it will ship. After reading that thread I decided to try not emailing, but I couldn't! I felt so rude and disconnected. That's the difference with shopping on etsy, don't you want that personal touch? We are small independent businesses, don't we want to give personal, excellent service? I feel like I'm ranting! haha, sorry.
Anyways, please share what you do by answering the polls below.
Have a lovely day my babies!
Time to stop procrastinating!
