underwhelmed by sales

Online selling, much like brick and mortar selling, has come to a screaming halt. I guess it is the lack of gift giving events in the summer. Because of this I propose August 1 to be give one person a gift day (preferably one from We craftspeople cannot spend our summers only to prepare for the Christmas season. I do not want to handle Christmas fabric in July. Give us a break.

There are fewer birthdays, graduations, weddings etc. in the heat of the summer. We need one gift giving holiday to get us through until Christmas.

I am looking for names for this new special day. Please comment with a good name for this new international holiday. :)

Whichever Presidential Candidate supports this plan, Obama or McCain, gets my vote.

It is just too hot too soon! Electricity is expensive to run air conditioners, gas is too expensive to drive to the movies where it is cool, the pool is not clear yet. What is a crafter to do. I go into my second floor craftroom to add a secret pocket to this beach blanket.

Why do I torture myself this way? Who knows? Maybe if I sell a few items soon, I can afford an air conditioner for my craft room and the electricity to run it. :)

The summer slowdown has begun in online selling. People don't spend much time in front of the computer as they do other times of the year. I am trying to take it in stride but do you think my bill issuers will take it in stride also? I think not.

Off to get more iced tea.
