Am still sick, but definitely better. The war has moved out of my sinuses and down into my chest, where the phlegm versus breathing battle still wages.

Grumpy with needy artists and customers who send in their paperwork/order and FIVE days later (not business days, either) want to know what the holdup is in getting them signed up/why their order hasn't arrived on their doorstep yet. *grouse* No rest for the wicked, I suppose. *writes more overly-polite emails that are vaguely apologetic.*

Got the new label stock for the soaps and teas, and am Very, Very happy with my testing of last night. The soap, in particular, looks MILES better than last year's packaging. Way easier to apply, too. Also ordered minitotes from company number 2. They were, unfortunately, unable to quote me shipping, or even assure me that shipping would be under any X dollar amount. So, I have no idea what final pricing will be and can't put up pre-orders for 'em yet.

More transfer paper on order - I'm a little puzzled because it's marked as paid, but no charges have cleared my credit card yet. Terribly pleased to see some projects from looooong ago start to pick up steam again.

I have found a new business toy that I covet desperately. Sadly, I do not have 18,000 extra dollars lying around.

Am very behind on emails - my sincere apologies to anyone waiting on me. I keep hoping to get caught up and being unexpectedly sideswiped by things that need me Now. Too many irons in the fires!
