Getting the hang of things...

First we want to start off the day with shouting our success!! Yesterday we had 6 orders and sold a total of 12 headbands!! We are loving the good karma that is coming our way. We have officially been online with photos/postings since July 3rd. So we think we are doing pretty well with 30 items sold in 2 weeks. We couldn’t have imagined it going any better for us.

We are in the middle of getting together new photos for our 20 + new headbands! We had a lot of requests to see the product on a model so we tried our mannequin head named Sam. First after posting the photos we realized she is a little scary so we are looking into re-doing our photos to show less of her face. This is a super long process though – it takes a while to take the photos with the right lighting, positioning etc. and then to get them posted we have to spend a lot of time on Photoshop cropping and resizing so they look good. Just be patient with us while we are working through this.

As for everything else we are getting ready to buy our own sewing machine! We are still finishing about 6 new headbands to post and are still looking for more awesome fabrics.

Well off to photograph. Thanks for stopping by!

Ahh, wow she is really scary!! I think it would probably be a good idea to find a new model. I guess Sam's dreams of becoming a model are crushed.

Julie... I am sorry to inform you that your bff Sam just got kicked off "Lis's next top model." :) Anyway I still think I am going to use her but just for one of the photos. You are so funny!
