Silvery Blue Christmas





Did you miss me?  Since my last post a lot has happened.  I prepared for my first big shipment of MISTIs.   Researching for boxes to mail out orders, ordering inventory, homeschooling, maintaining a home, answering emails on when the MISTIs would get here and a little crafting.  I promise I have done crafting.

I have several videos waiting to be edited.  It just takes forever to edit and narrate videos.  Especially, finding time when the house is quiet to do the voice overs.  

The morning that my shipment arrived we were headed out of town.  We hurried to the warehouse.  I was a little overwhelmed by the site.   One year ago, I was drowning in plexi parts trying to assemble MISTIs and sell them as fast as I could.  At the same time I was answering angry emails because someone did not get to order one.   Now, there would be plenty of MISTIs to last a while.

That afternoon, we made a four hour drive to St. Louis.  We had to catch a flight at the crack of dawn to head to Texas.  My in-laws were moving to Missouri.  We helped them finish up the clean up after the movers came.  The next morning we were on the road, driving in two separate vehicles hauling my father-in-laws tools.  We left at 9 a.m. Sunday morning and drove until 4 p.m. Monday afternoon.  We had to drive the minimum speed limit and taking a break at a rest stop.  My poor husband drove straight through with only 3 hours sleep.  He did not want me driving the trailer.

Luckily, I was able to use my hot spot on my cellphone and answer emails and submit orders to the warehouse.  I want to thank everyone for being patient on getting their orders.  I hope that you love the new packaging and the laser MISTIs.

I finally had time to edit this very long video.  There are so many projects in this one video.  I hope you enjoy it.

Just keep in mind it took forever to edit and narrate.  Please be sure to give it a thumbs up and share with your friends.

The list of supplies is located in the product description below the video.
