New Reviews

What is the first thing you do when you wake up? I check in the Etsy app to see what new things have happened in my shops overnight. And that’s the kind of news that lifts my spirits for the whole day. Thank you, Sharon, for the lovely reviews! We appreciate them very much.

Shipping

My biggest ever order left home today to Switzerland. It consists of 7 garlands. Thus, the packaging was a challenge. I used my white boxes for Daffodils, Poppies and Campanula garlands and put four little buntings in one pack. Then I packed them all into a carton, which I got with my birthday gift from my loved daughter (you know, I am a boxes person). It fitted ideally. I hope the customer will be happy with her order.

Shipping

Wow! Today morning I sent two orders to the USA, and one of them was to Hawaii for the first time. Mari purchased white and yellow Daffodils and flowers garlands from me. I always check the address customers give me at their orders just in to avoid mistakes. This time I checked the address because I have never sent something to the HI state. Thank you, Mari, for adding a new point to my sales map. By the way, the second order was to Harwood, MD. Julia bought white Daffodils garland from me.

In general, I am highly suspicious about the weather in the USA, especially around New York. Lots of my orders are in the customs clearing in New York or on their way to it. I am keeping my fingers crossed that nobody gets hurt during this snowstorm and my orders reach the customers.

Crocheting and Gardening

That’s what I crocheted all week – one of my favourite flowers – Daffodils. As you bought all my Daffodils garlands up – white and yellow – I decided to crochet them in different sizes, long and short. And now I have them – 16 white and 16 yellow Daffodils. That means that you’ll see four Daffodils garlands at the shop this weekend. And yes, I am buying more Daffodils and Tulips bulbs on top of those I already have! October is the month when we plant tulips and daffodils in our gardens. What is more, I am thinking of buying more spring flowers for my small city garden. Sure, I’ll write about that to you!

Daffodils Garland in Progress

All of my daffodil garlands, yellow and white, sold out. Even though it’s out of season for these flowers, I still prefer to make them and have them in stock – then I can send them to a customer as soon as possible. I crochet a trumpet-shaped corona with dark yellow thread first, and then the petals with yellow or white. I plan to make two garlands of each flower – the longer of 9 flowers and the shorter of 7.
