{Bits & Bubs} and the requisite indecision

Finally! I have found a few spare minutes to unnecessarily play with my {Bits & Bubs} shop front on madeit.com.au with the final result looking...surprise surprise...exactly the same as it has for the last 5 months- still sitting sad & empty while my box of goodies to sell is ever expanding.

Part of my problem is that

  • I don't like to part with the items I have made- (side note) I am a massive collector (of anything) - I like to know the items are safely tucked away somewhere where i can pull them out or stack them so I can view all their pretty fabrics and colours and pretty much just sit and smile. It makes me happy!
  • I like to keep them for my daughters, friends children, gifts etc
  • I never get around to taking fabulous photos that do them justice- I am a terrible photographer and after I put them on the computer I see that the clothes need ironing, the model (read daughter/s) was dirty, something in the background was off etc etc. This is because I do not prepare for anything- when I decide to do something I just do it bull at a gate- and it is always a waste of time!

Anyway, back to my madeit shop- I have been meaning to add items on here for so long but always put it off for some reason or another. 2 weeks ago I had added incentive as when I was out shopping for the girls for winter I had a lady asking me what label my eldest daughters outfit was and where could she get it.

Yes, she is a bit of a ruffian...

Due to me being lost in my own world (on a shopping high) and having no real brain comprehension after 3 hours of trying to shop with a 6 month old and "energetic" nearly 3 year old, I thought she was asking me what brand my pram was and after a moment of clarity realised she was referring to the outfit and managed to tell her it is my label and that I sell on madeit.com.au.
My first 3 /feelings were- CHUFFED: she loved my items! everyone loves some praise... DAMN!: wish I had some business cards! Must design some when I go home so have on hand for future instances like these... and CRAP!: I had better add some items to my store, don't want to miss a possible customer! ....and of course I still have not added any items...I did however go home and do up business cards and swing tags in record time- it just all flowed and with hardly any indecisions!

Note to self: I WILL be listing items on my madeit store tonight come hell or high water tonight!
