Store Project Progress

I only worked 3 days last week and it still felt too long.  I think I am spoiled.  This week is a full 5 days.  I'm trying not to think about it.  I sent in all the legal paperwork for my online store this week.  My preview with BigCommerce has 10 days left.  After that I will have to pay $25 to keep my shop up and running.  It has taken me a week to figure out the correct format for the logo and header and how to upload pictures of my products.  And then there are all the things to learn about photography.  I found many helpful how-to sites for taking photos of products.  I built a white box with white paper and a cardboard box and used some aluminum foil to reflect the sunlight.  My camera is old but I think it did an ok job.

A little dark, I think, but I can fix that.  These birds are only 3/4 of an inch so they are pretty small.

Other than working on my store, I've been doing laundry and laundry and laundry.  These dogs and puppies create so much laundry.  I spent Saturday at an adoption event trying to get my puppies adopted.  There were 2 people interested but they were both going on vacation so they couldn't take a puppy now.  I should have started advertising the puppies a couple of weeks ago but I was sure they would go fast.  Maybe they will get some interest from the rescue's website this week.  I'll keep next Saturday open for puppy deliveries just in case.

Really cute! Did you make those birds Daizy?

It would be exciting if I ever had time to work on it. Now that the boy is off to visit the grandparents and all the puppies have been adopted, I might have time to work on it again.

No, I didn't make them MW, they are just part of the project that I am putting together. I hope to make my own things later on.
