Lost a Sale Thanks to High Postal Rates!

It really burns me. I half expected the customer would decline once i quoted her the cost of shipping to the U.K. It literately was more than the cost of the item!

But other than that i was doing pretty good with sales, at least enough to pay my medical insurance and medications, now the sales are far and few between.  I guess it's just the time of year. I haven't changed or slacked off what i've been doing, the only time i slacked off was a few days here and there when i wasn't feeling good. Even then i still did as much promotion as i could.

So now i'm at the point that i need more yarn and other supplies, but need sales in order to buy them. Ugh I guess i will start crocheting with recycles like plastic bags and rags.

Here's some of what's new

Until next time :)

The Latest

I haven't blogged in a while because i really don't get traffic for anything other than the patterns i share. But just in case, I have been working on more of the same-slippers and towels since they're my best sellers.
Check out the latest in my shop Debbie Crochets

I'm Running Out Of Steam

Ok i started writing out a long post, but the short and quick to the point i this---I'm burned out. I don't know what else to make. I've been going through patterns and either i don't have the right kind of yarn , or i just can't get myself motivated. I have over 200 items in my shop, yet every now and then someone wants something in a different color etc. Which is fine, but a bit hard to do when the yarn stash is running out.
I wish i could just sell everything i have already made. It would be nice to be able to give myself a break. I have 8 little kids to get gifts for (friends) I have some crochet, but not enough made. I think i'm just going to cook up some plates of cookies for them.
So anyway.I have made some new stuff since my last post. Feel free to take a look. Debbie Crochets

One Down, One to Go

Thanksgiving turned out pretty good. I ended up cooking the bird and all the fixings for ten,
I tried to get out of cooking for Christmas, but as usual, that's not going to be the case. Wow, holidays are supposed to be relaxing i thought. Oh well.

So in the meantime, i'm getting a lot of crochet done. I didn't go crazy with the gifts this year, i just got the boys some things they needed t shirts. I actually give my son Mike one of his gifts first. One of his sneakers came apart the other day at work, so he got that gift. Luckily they're not little anymore s they understand that i can't go into debt to get a bunch of stuff. As it is i will be paying for the few things i did get all year on my Fingerhut and Dept store credit cards. I was able to also get some things with the Amazon credits i saved up for using Superpoints website, so hubbys gift didn't cost e anything.

On the other hand, i'm still waiting to hear if the clinic will approve me to see an ENT or some dr to check out my throat. The plus side is either i'm just getting used to it (feeling of a rope around my neck at times) or maybe it was a side effect of the nicotine patch that i stopped using the other day. (two months now) It seems like it's hardly noticeable now. At least i'm eating and breathing. The bills are still coming in from my stay at the hospital. The one that got me said please pay upon reciept- something like $50,0000...Sure let me just check my Paypal LOL. All i can do is laugh. I'm lucky i can pay the $15 to go to the crappy clinic. Oh well.

Wishing you all Happy Holidays
