Am I Coming Down With Something?!?
The flu epidemic still persists across our country. I've been quite fortunate that it hasn't hit our family hard (my youngest has had a low fever a couple of days but I don't know if it is flu related - the flu vaccine may have helped). But I may have contracted another illness. I think I may have QUILT POX!!
I think I may have been diseased from my local quilt shop. I've been hanging around there, perhaps more than I should. Which isn't a bad thing, right?
But serious...the quilt shop owner had a website for her shop that wasn't being utilized to it's full potential. I had been looking for a particular fabric I had purchased in her brick and mortar store. I wanted to check her website before making the trip, and I found out she wasn't using the "fabric" category of her website.
So what did I do? I offered to help her add fabrics into her web store. I knew that I wasn't the only person who searched for fabrics on the web, and she could profit from that.
So, as of the last two weeks, I have been diligently been imputting fabric names, desciptions, pattern #'s, prices... into the website. I find myself in heaven when I'm at her shop because it is MY job to throw myself into all her quilting fabrics!! And I couldn't ask for a better schedule. It allows me to choose which days to come in and scan fabric images and gather info on them. Then I can work from home and be with my family. I'm only away when my boys are at school, so to them, I'm still their stay-at-home mom.
Sometimes I feel that I've over-filled my plate at times, but it fills good that I am helping out my new boss. I feel that I am getting something important accomplished.
As soon as I get all the fabrics into the website, I'll be able to share it with you. Hope it will be soon. Now...back to work!!!
