New Review

This Flowers bunting is cute, and it gets a lot of five stars reviews. It is the first I’ve created, and then I crocheted some colour variations of it. So there are the multicolour flowers bunting, pink shades garland, and autumn colours bunting. I also plan to create a decor in blue shades because I have enough blue tone yarn in my stash.

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.

Working Place

Recently, sales on Etsy have declined. Everyone explains it by the fact that customers are waiting for Black Friday. For this reason, I have decided to prepare more of my best sellers to send them out as soon as the customers buy them. As you can see in the picture, three new flower buntings are almost ready. There is a completed cross stitch picture, embroidered by Durene Jones pattern in the background. It is named “Let’s drink tea and eat cake”. This picture always stands on my desk and gives me a lot of joy.

Packaging and Shipping

Our bestseller at CrochetCabinetCrafts was dispatched today morning to Laguna Niguel, CA, USA. It is a colourful bunting that consists of ten flowers and nine leaves units with string, crocheted from 100% mercerized cotton yarn. I have not many orders now, that is why I could take photos of all the packing process using my new stickers, of course 🙂

Review

That was an interesting story with this order. Violet bought a garland from me on August 16 and asked if the bunting would arrive by September 1. I immediately looked up the address and saw that it was New York. For this, I wrote back that it is difficult for me to guarantee something because shipments from Poland take to the U.S. once six days, the other time fourteen days. But taking into consideration that all of them go to New York for customs control, it is possible to assume that she will get the garland by September 1. And I’m still calmly checking the tracking: posted on August 16, sent from Poland on August 18, accepted in the destination country on August 21, released from customs on August 22 (ISC NEW YORK NY (USPS) – I’m already happy, but still silence, total silence and my package does not move. I am anxiously checking the tracking several times a day. Finally, “the item arrived (International Postal System)” on August 30, and therefore “the item was delivered” on August 30. Violet also wrote to me that she already received this garland. I must admit that it cost me some nerves, but fortunately, everything ended well. Thank you, Violet, for your patient and this lovely review!

Review

It’s hard to describe the feeling of joy that comes over you when you receive a new review of your product. You are happy because someone loves what you have created and made with your hands. In this case, the feedback was accompanied by a text message stating that the garland is now decorating the entrance to your customer’s house. And you sit there all happy, looking at a map of the world and imagining this house in Smyrna, Georgia in America and the people who live in it and watch your work every day. And you are convinced once again that you are doing everything right! Lori, thank you for these kind words and Sunday magic mood!
