Stamp licking, cold calling, home-made soup, 10 cups of tea and The XX
I may not pay the minimum wage likening myself to the foreign sweat shops...HOWEVER unlike many establishments CHARLOTTE TAYLOR helpers get:
-Fresh home-made chicken and barley soup (courtesy of pop) Yum with a capital Y.
-Limitless tea (new fave is green tea with pear...Divine)
-Warm, cozy working environment with eclectic selection of music (sometimes..)
-Sweets and chocolate (bribery = great)
-Animal magic (a cat and dog who both think they are human and seem to actually talk...maybe this is just me)
Time to get all the invitations assembled and sent out. With a little help from my friends we:
-Compile the final list of buyers and press to invite
-Double check contacts are correct through the internet and calling shops/ magazines etc
-Design invite (I have a printed and an emailed version)
-Prepare package to send, including extras etc
-Stamp and post
As a large part of my invites are hand written I have spent a serious amount of time amongst heaps of paper with pen in hand. I am not one to write to people signing my own name but getting someone else to actually write it... At this stage I think the more personal the better.
Hence I have what feels like tennis elbow as a result and am also seeing double...good job i'm not sewing this evening then...
A MASSIVE thank-you to everyone who has helped me. I LOVE you.
BTW I did not make my friend sit on the floor, she is quote "a floor person"...Good. That's settled then..
