We all know that we put an awful lot of heart and soul into our makes. If someone wants to spend their hard earned cash on something we have made, we go the extra mile to make sure its the best we can be. That’s why is so hard if a negative comment comes in or someones not happy with their purchase. But that’s when your business head has to kick in. If you can’t fix it then leave it a day, scream and shout a bit then refund and respond. Sometimes your best just isn’t good enough for some people.
Wow, what a wonderful, supportive thread this is. I can’t thank you all enough. I think I have it all in perspective now, one out of 595 sales is not so bad. It just shook me as it is the first time this has happened. I will take your advice. I have refunded her and will do a brief message as recommended by Sarah @thedotterypotter, thank you
Also to Rachel @AppleQueenJewellery
Roz @OrchardFelts - love your brooch today and
@Verchielbeadsandjewellery - congratulations on your sale
So nothing new, again, so sorry but I now feel as though I can get my head down and crack on.
Really sorry to hear this Carol. I think your parchment cards look beautiful. Unfortunately, there are some people that are never satisfied and love to complain and be unpleasant. Try not to take it to heart.
Thanks Helen for you kind words
I’m working on it
The afternoon has really run away with me today!
Jayne @GoRadLou, I hope the Dr was able to help and that you can get your discomfort sorted out.
Natalie @NOfkantsCurios, my thoughts are with you.
Max @MaxPringJewellery, can you add a sale to my tally please?
My new listing today is actually not a purse for a change as I managed to get some photos taken earlier so that I can list this toiletry bag.
Loved and pinned to here.
Afternoon all. Hope you are all well. These are a relist with new photos . Must try harder with photos! Love the ocean jasper stones Deborah @DeborahJonesJewellery
Hope all goes well Natalie @NOfkantsCurios Take care.
I had a sale @MaxPringJewellery
Ever felt you’ve set yourself too much of a task! After spending the morning tidying up (again) and getting on with some much overdue admin I set myself the task of making 2 scarves this afternoon. One is made and drying, the other still has about half an hours work to do on it and I am shattered - really cant face it but know its got to be done. I’ve procrastinated with a cup of coffee, a piece of toast, messaging the children and generally surfing the web but cant put it off any longer - here goes!
all loved and pinned to here.
Sorry I was awol yesterday but all caught up to here.
I have a sale to report for the tally please Max @maxpringjewellery. Thank you so much for the beautiful card, Elly @EllyRowbothamPrintmaker. I just love the furriness of the bee! Hope your sore mouth feels more comfortable soon @nannyjulie. My work output seems to have slowed almost to a standstill this month and I’m going to be awol for the next few days, but I’ve clicked and loved to here and have a slight variation on the copper bangle theme!
Good evening yay happy dancing for your sales Patricia, Caroline and Helen
Busy day here - managed to email my Newsletter list to see if they wanted to continue receiving it and also did a sign up link for the newsletter on my Facebook page. I do find all this IT stuff difficult!
Our conservatory has been clean - not by us, we had someone in to do it, and it looks lovely. Worth the effort of moving everything out and now considering what needs to go back in there. It doubles as my photography corner and bead storage and its main purpose tends to get overlooked (except by the cats who love to sleep in comfort out there!
Have also helped daughter start to get her room looking a bit tidier - no mean feat and not finished yet!
A sale to export please Max @MaxPringArtAndCrafts and a relist
faved to here x
First sale of the month to report please Max @MaxPringJewellery.
Unfortunately it was a card I had sold last year and somehow managed to relist, so I’ve spent the afternoon reproducing it as closely as I can.
Hope you’re feeling a bit better today Carol @cariadcrafts11, your cards are lovely and 590+ other people can’t be wrong.
Hope the funeral went okay Natalie @NOfkantsCurios
Hope you feel less sore soon Julie @nannyjulie
A new listing from me
I love your cards @cariadcrafts11 xx
Feel better soon @nannyjulie
Hope the funeral went as well as it could @NOfkantsCurios
That bowl is gorgeous @thedotterypotter
Hope you get it sorted @GoRadLou I’ve still got a hole in my back after having an abscess removed, and I lived with the cyst/lipoma for years. It gets you down! Fingers crossed for you xx
Congrats all with sales I’ve gone over the 200 mark on t’other side, but a little way off here.
Thank you Alison. Yes after all kind words and advice on here, i am getting things in perspective.
