shipping your steals and deals
i’ve got three fingertips taped up from final filing & fitting, and a sore wrist from hammering, but its still more fun than i ever imagined filling and shipping dozens of orders everyday.
the Steals and Deals appearance on the TODAY show two weeks ago was, of course, a huge success, not just in sales but also in getting to meet hundreds of great new people interested in jewelry, symbols, blacksmithing and my style through email and on the phone.
thanks to everyone who’s ordered and if you haven’t gotten your pieces yet, rest assured that they are headed to he post soon in a box like this, hand filled and double checked by me personally.
once again, i couldn’t have gotten this all in order smoothly without john’s help. i guess all those years of him framing pictures are good for something still– he’s helped me make a smooth system of printing labels and packing slips and entering it all into the computer so we know what’s done and what’s not.
i’d rather just be making the jewelry but i have to admit its pretty satisfying seeing the box fill up with packages all labelled with their postage already and delivery confirmation tracking bar codes– we’re burning through printer cartridges, but me and %$#@&^! technology are getting along pretty well right now!
so on that note, if you;re still looking for your order, i should mention that your shipping confirmation emails don’t actually come from me, they come from paypal.com with some crazy long number in the address, so for some people they are being blocked as spam. we did write you a note mentioning that if you sign up for my mailing list, you will get exclusive access to future special offers direct from me–
Jill’s Steals and Deals was the first time i’ve ever offered a discount to anyone not on my mailing list or a fan on Facebook!
(right now, all mailing list subscribers can still get the Steals and Deals 76% discount through next Friday, April 21 with a special code, (even tho Jill’s deal is over) so if you missed out two weeks ago, you didn’t! check your email for a message from me (if you’re currently a subscriber) or sign up here if you’re not– new orders won’t ship until May, but the trinkets won’t ever be this cheap again!
