Sleep is overrated

It’s nearly 1 AM and I haven’t been able to convince the brain to turn off yet.

I received an interesting mix of answers to my previous survey question.

To follow up, I can track inventory in the shopping cart I’m using, which means that if I tell it I only have 2 — it won’t let you buy more than that.  If it isn’t available, you can’t buy it, but I can decide whether it disappears when it is sold out, or if it still shows up as a product, with OUT OF STOCK displayed instead of the add to cart button.  I could be convinced to go either way, and many of you have given me compelling reasons (that I had already been considering) on both sides.

Just one of a zillion details to take care of.

It’s always darkest before the dawn, right?  Cause right now, it’s pretty dark and murky.  Overwhelmingly so.  Today was one of those mixed-bag kind of days.  We had to do some shopping this evening which wore us all out.  Earlier in the day, I got a surprise visit from Miki and Diane who were bringing me patterns (and samples!) and t-shirts to have on hand for the shop opening.  (If you visit their site…I have the 3 pieced patterns and the Life is Simple t-shirts…).  I tried to do something brilliant about getting images of the notions and…it turned out to be brilliant only in my head.  So that was a waste.  I don’t even remember what I did this morning.  It was too long ago.

And now, I’ve got these brand-new ideas that I would love to make happen, but I think I’m running out of time….one is t-shirts!  Don’t you think the STAFF of Knots & Bolts need t-shirts?  Yeah, right.  I’ll get right on that.   Oh!  and I need to find someone to digitize my logo for embroidery!   Plus, I had a brainstorm about something to use as an in-store shopping basket of sorts (those skeins and balls of yarn are hard to hold on to!) and the couple of stores we visited after my brainstorm didn’t have what I was looking for.

I can order some online, but I don’t know if they’ll be here by next weekend or not:

A 5 quart galvanized pail!  Isn’t it adorable?  I think it fits the look/feel of the shop.

So have you noticed how this post has veered from overwhelmed and whining to excited and happy??  That pretty much sums it up.  I suspect there will be more of that to come.

I think I’m finally sleepy enough to hit the hay.  Morning will be here awfully soon.
