.....the end is nigh.....or is it?


I will be having a sale this weekend over at RubyRaeLove, this will be to reduce stock because i currently have over 90 products, it is impossible to keep up with orders as well as having two part-time jobs, in the last month and half i have had 1,350 orders, so it has been mega hectic to say the least, i am a one woman shop. Oh man i hate being depressing, I have regretfully been thinking about shutting the shop down for a while, i dont want to close down rubyraelove, but its becoming rather stressful if i could employ people to pack orders i would but alas i can not afford too. Please don't get me wrong i am totally grateful to every single customer i get, but it is a mixture of personal life and work that is getting on top of me. I just wanted everyone to know that i put so much effort into every item, and everything i do that choosing to close isn't what i want to do but it is a possibility right now, i will sleep on it and have a little think.

Once i have freed up a little bit of time and organized everything a bit more, i think it will all be ok, i hope this isnt to much of a depressing post, i really want to do it all atm, draw, paint, work, and make jewellery i just need to get myself a bigger diary to fit everything into.

p.s. i just wanted everyone to know who has ordered this week, i hope you have received your parcels by now, the royal mail is really snarled up here, and some packages haven't been received if they haven't get in touch and we will sort it out.

  5. I hate it when royal mail messes up. I know what you are going through (i think). I kept tempsec going throughout my 3rd and 4th year at uni and looking back, i have no idea how i did it. But i didn't have as many orders as you. I think i've had just over 1,000 orders now and I've been doing it for 3 years.

    It does get too much, though - esp when customers are emailing you demanding to know where their order is, even though they only purchased 2 days ago! :( xxx
