It's a good problem to have...

I know it is. But seriously my signs - out of control with custom orders right now. I've got weddings and names and holidays - it's great - but right now I'm UNORGANIZED. Guess what - my goal for today - get all the custom order requests organized. That and get my studio room cleaned. I should post pictures of the mess I have in there right now but it might be entirely too embarrassing. We'll see. Maybe I'll just do it as a Before and After project. And note, I'm writing this here - today - so now it is a commitment (the organized, cleaning thing) - and really I'm very responsible - I am a first-born, what can I say.

So in an effort to try to speed up this entire sign process I borrowed my friend Heather's Cricut last week and I think I like it. I'm going to return it on Saturday during a play date at her house *personal note to Heather - Saturday will work for me :-) I think I have failed to respond to your email :-( (so much for responsible). Anyway, the Cricut definitely speeds up the sign process but I'm not sure they have the just right font. I would really like a Wishblade but I need to try it first. Anyone have a Wishblade up for grabs? :-) Or a review at the very least. The thing about the Wishblade - you can cut any TrueType font you have installed on your computer. This is a good thing. I must have over 500 fonts loaded on my computer (the HotY loves that). The Wishblade may initially be more expensive but in the long run I think it pays for itself due to that computer font thing. What do you think? Cricut? Wishblade? Other?

Okay, so here is the list for today:

Get sign orders organized
Email Heather
Decide Wishblade or Cricut

I know I know so much to do so little time but at least the "find shower curtain" entry has been deleted - but that's another story for another day.

Have a fabulous day.

My SIL Nancy has both sized of the Cricut. She swears by it. I tried it for the first time at the end of July and I think now I might need one too! I think she said something about being able to do things on the PC with it also. You might want to check into that first before making your decision.
