Crocheting

Because of the lack of orders last week, I started crocheting so-called supplies for my garlands – yellow and orange trumpets for daffodils, centres for autumn shades flowers, leaves for sunflowers bunting, etc. I crocheted different parts of my creations but any for poppies, campanula, and pumpkin garlands. And here is the new order for these three beauties. Fortunately, I haven’t got many lessons as my students are still on vacation. So my hands are full of work!

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.

Orange Poppy Garland

Yesterday a customer asked me if I could crochet orange poppies garland. Of course, I could. However, I decided to check what colours poppies can be. I was shocked: in nature, poppies can be white (Islandic poppies), yellow, orange, red, and purple. I think it’s worth crocheting the garland in each colour so my customer could choose the bunting by their preferences and home decor.

Shipping

I was finishing and packaging last weekend orders all day long. Tomorrow I’ll send three garlands – yellow daffodils, poppies, and flowers to Batavia, IL; pumpkins garland to Stockbridge, GA; and a tiny burgundy choker to Roswell, GA. All orders are from the USA. Thank you, my dear customers 🙂 You can easily see which box the garlands are in – the box tied with the threads buntings are crochet. That helps me not to get confused when packing the orders into envelopes.

Shipping

Yesterday I packed and shipped orders to the USA: cities of Arvada, Colorado and Dublin, Virginia and today to Stamford, Lincolnshire, UK. They were sunflowers, daisies and poppies garlands. Business is booming, so I am making more garlands again. The packing looks like the picture in my house. I use several types of stickers: the small white ones are my favourite, I ordered them a lot in the UK for my old shop, and I still use them (I won’t throw them away), and the big brown ecological ones I ordered locally in Poland, I don’t like them very much. As soon as I finish them, I will purchase new ones in the UK with a new shop name. I made The stickers as arrows made by myself and stick the box so that the customer knows how to open it. I am proud of these stickers. What is your opinion about them? And at the end, I always tie the box with the threads that I used for crocheting the garland.

Crocheting Process

When a customer buys a garland, I try to crochet it as fast as I could. The processing time of an item isn’t long at CrochetCabinetCrafts – from 3 to 5 working days. When a customer buys two garlands, I get panicky. My last order was Poppies and Sunflowers garlands that require a lot of time to crochet. Today I can breathe a sigh of relief – new Poppies garland is ready, and almost all flowers for Sunflower bunting are ready. The working process is here:
