Wednesday Wisdom: It's OK to say no

Posted by 55799468 on

When it comes to doing something for your small one-person-run business, it's hard to say "no." When it's something that can get you exposure, get your name out, make people aware of you, and maybe even make a profit? It's hard to say no. But when it's something that keeps you up at night, keeps you restless, wakes you up early in the morning with worry, with stress?

I opened the kiln this morning to a successful bisque firing -- While the kiln was not as full as I wanted it to be, some of these pieces are time-sensitive and I needed to go ahead and fire... even if I would have wanted another ten or so pieces in there.

Sure, I could start a Kickstarter campaign, but for just a $300 camera?! So I’ve decided to put all hand lotion and lip balm on sale instead -- use the coupon code “badcat” at checkout to get 15% off all remaining hand lotions and lip balms! Spend $100 and I might send you a free cat, too (warning: cat is clumsy)!

Technically from last week, I fired these right before my birthday and then got supremely busy! Hopefully I will get everything listed today that's available. A few of these are custom orders, and some still need painting (the yarn bowls and the gray mugs).
