It feels like it been forever since I posted! Hmmm … that just might be because it has, well not quite forever but several days.
It’s that time of the year (nope not Birthday season again), twice a year we get an influx of new stock. Our winter clothing and holiday toys are starting to pile in! YIKES, it means tons of work for me and of course panic. I panic about getting it photographed (sounds easy right – nope). I have several hundred images to take and then edit.
and then I have to write fluffy, yet informative descriptions that are going to make you want to take the stuff home and let you know the content, washing instructions, sizing and maybe even age appropriate warnings?
Little Me Baby Boys Four Piece Blue Bodysuit Set ~ Traveling Froggy. This classic yet unique four piece set is great for any little boy. Set includes four short sleeved body suits with snap button closures between legs. First body suit is light blue and has a plane applique with the phrase “P is for plane” stitched above it. Second bodysuit is cobalt blue and has a frog with bike applique on chest with the words “Lil Traveler” stitched below it. Third bodysuit is light blue with a frog and grasshopper traveling print throughout. Fourth body suit has a blue, lime and white stripe print throughout along with a frog in car applique on chest.
ALL ITEMS ARE: 100% Cotton.
Sizes available: nb, 3m, 6m and 9m
Machine wash warm.
Obviously NOT my finest writing moment!
Once I have all of the info/images ready, I put each product on line, each product needs an item code, description, price in 2 currencies, weight, measurements, inventory, options (sizing) and images uploaded (and some other junk you don’t want to hear about).
Once each product is online we begin to cross-reference them (match them up with other products you might like as well) and copy them to multiple places on the site (so you can find the Deux par Deux boys shorts in the Deux par Deux section, toddler boys bottoms section, the infant boys bottoms section, and in the summer section (you get the idea).
So the idea of having to do this several hundred times, makes me want to crawl up into a little ball and cry (well a BIG ball, I’m not all that little – *sigh*).
All these exciting parcels arrive right in the middle of our busy time at home too, my kids are around ALL day long, and other people just don’t seem to think that WORKING from HOME is really WORK. I can’t tell you the number of people that call me to babysit for them, or expect me to drop everything I am doing with little or no notice.
Unfortunately, the BLOG comes pretty low on the totem pole in times of extreme busy, forgive me if I am slow in posting.
Does this sound like whinging? IT IS!
While the new stock rolls in (cords, micro fleece long johns and snowsuits arrived today), the spring/summer stock has to GO. Please people go and get your little people some great clothes at below cost (REALLY). We have way, way, way too much spring/summer stock hanging around. It’s gotta go, the sooner the better.
Look at this cute romper: (usually $25+ now only $10 (I paid more than that)).
While I am photo editing, description writing, site updating , stock rearranging and thinking up all kinds of great places to run and hide (including PONOKA (location of our local mental institution)). I keep the kids busy by having them
watch TV read books (honest). Sam is busy reading a transformer chapter book, Lizzy is reading a Betty and Veronica (hey can’t complain if they are reading ), Hayley’s gobbling down the latest Harry Potter and Georgia’s favourite potty reading are these cute little board books from Crocodile Creek. There are four different kinds, I like this one the best.
I am giving away two books – one for Tuesday and one for Wednesday. To be eligible to win, just leave a comment and tell me
why you love my blog your favorite book (adult or kids).
Two winners to be randomly drawn on or around Wednesday July 25th @ 9 pm’ish.
