Well, I guess as the old saying goes, "You win some, you lose some; and some get rained out". I was so excited at the end of the week because I had a convo on Etsy to make up a custom wreath, I sold my Truely Turquoise necklace and I had been commissioned outside of Etsy to make up a necklace and earrings for a lady in Texas. Yesterday, I finished up the necklace and earrings and purchased the greenery that I needed for the wreath. Today I spent close to 2 hours working to create the wreath and was pleased with my end result. We got a break in the clouds and I photographed both jewelry and floral and emailed pictures to the prospective buyers. Hallelujah, the jewelry was a hit, buyer was thrilled, seller is thrilled, happy ending. That's my win some. Unfortuneately, wreath buyer backed out. Wasn't what she wanted after all but I still listed it to Etsy because it's a good design and someone else may grab it up. I guess that's my "some get rained out". The Truely Turquoise necklace is still sitting here, all packaged up with no where to go. I have not heard boo from the buyer since I got the Etsy email informing me of the purchase Thursday night. So I'm not sure where to go from here. I guess if I don't have confirmation of payment by Tuesday, that will be over 4 days and I will figure out how to cancel the sale. That's my lose some.
