It is 2:20am, and I am wide awake. My husband is lightly snoring beside me, and I am struggling to find just the right amount of covers. It isn't a good idea to be up so late, I know I will suffer this decision tomorrow. No matter what time I fall asleep, my darling daughter will fling open the bedroom door at 6:30am, declaring her breakfast requirements. "Mook, Mama! I want mook, and gummy bears, and bacon!" She has a very strict, self-imposed routine these days. Hoping to win a few more minutes, I'll beg and plead for her to come snuggle. It is rare that I am able to persuade her, but worth it when she does. I am too anxious to sleep! My mind is ticking away with possibility. Tomorrow, I'm announcing the opening of my Spoonflower shop!
All of the drawing, planning, and editing has finally landed me at a finish line. I am nervous and proud. There was one small hiccup in my eagerness to share, but I am trying not to let it get me down. After receiving my sample swatches to finalize the collection, I made a few small adjustments. That's what proofing is for, after all. My problem was that I uploaded new listings instead of revising current listings. Then I sat on that mistake for a week before I realized anything was even wrong. So, here I am, lying in bed at 2:20am trying to figure out how to explain why only five of my designs are available to purchase without delaying the launch that I promised on August 1st. It feels like I've just tripped over my big feet, and ruined my entire race.
Then again, this is just a small mistake. All of the designs are there, all of my links are working, and all of the love that I put into this collection is still evident. Cross your fingers for me, and let's see what happens tomorrow!
