Wednesday is the day
May 01, 2009
I finally made up my mind. The shop will open on Wednesday.
There will be 30 camera straps for sale - five different colorways, six of each colorway. No two straps in each colorway are *exactly* alike. They include the same fabrics, but different widths of each one, and in some cases, they are sewn together in a different order. I will show a photo of a finished strap in each colorway, but the one you may receive may be slightly different than the one pictured. They are all the same length and constructed the same way.
Does this make sense?
I am not going to commit to a specific time. Not having done this before, I am unsure how long it is going to take to get it all set up. When everything is up and running, I will post the opening here and on my flickr page.
All right. It's a big weekend here. I'm off to the races! See you next week.
Congratulations! I can already see back orders having to be placed! :)

I really hope I can buy 2 but I would settle for just one! I have never ordered online like this before so it will be a 1st for both of us! - mcg

Talk about a guilt trip! Have been toying with same shop notion but it keeps ending up in that too-hard basket. Then again, if I had 30 lovely camera straps to proffer... sheesh, you'll be sold out in an hour!

oh boy, i really hope i can snag one! congrats on opening your shop.

First of all...I have been in hiding for awhile now. Life is hard sometimes. Our daughter's school has also been closed due to Swine flu...not too fun...I just wanted to say...I can't wait for those camera Straps...I hope I get my hands on one. Also we all have bad parenting days...I am not the most patient person and sometimes I feel like I am not doing as much as I could too. You are not alone and that is a very important thing to remember. We are people first...we make mistakes and get tired and need personal time...so raising kids is the big challenge/reward in life and you are doing a FANTASTIC job!!! I have always admired you and your blog. You share a lot but do keep it upbeat and it's okay to be slightly negative or very negative from time to time. In fact I think it is very healthy. I also keep forgetting to tell you I never did get the calendar? Super weird...I get all my mail and never have any problems at all.....
Thanks for being you Erin...and I think you ROCK!!!

oh yay, are you so excited!?!? it's going to be an amazing shop opening.
Posted by: heather smith jones | May 03, 2009 at 10:59 PM
I want one! And no pressure: I bet you could send whatever one you wanted, whenever you got around to it, to all of us, and we'd be pleased as pie.
PS:Love that clock.
