And its outta here!

The Anthropologie order shipped yesterday! Can I tell you what a relief this is, can I just tell you?

 It was a lot of work and the last month ended up being a case of "if it can go wrong, it will go wrong".  But I will tell you this, I learned a heck of a lot about wholesale, about business and most certainly about myself.

And this was a calm day...

I purchased some IKEA bins ahead of time and they were really helpful for storing and moving things around.
My mom and my husband did the barcoding and packaging last Saturday.  

This is 227 pieces. And to think the buyer originally was talking about 4000 total with pieces "to all doors"! Instead they're carrying my work as a web exclusive only and you can also see some of the pieces on models throughout the website.
