Hello out there in Xangaland! I’ve been MIA for a few days as far as blogging goes . . . well, I HAVE been keeping up with my subscription reading, but I’ve had very little time to write anything myself. I hope you’re all well!
The business has been keeping me busy, which is good. In fact, I have a couple of quotes I need to work on in a few minutes, so this will be short today. The last few days have been quite good as far as window treatments go. A couple signed their contract for 27 custom window blinds on Saturday and I am meeting with a designer this afternoon to finalize the details for shutters and other window treatments for one of her clients.
Another woman really liked my 2″ blinds and my price, so I’m sure that will be a done deal shortly. And I’m about to do a quote for another 27 windows for a custom home in a “ranch estates” type development near here.
In addition, one of the developers a little north of here contacted me about participating in a “builders’ fair” in April. The development has around 500 homesites ready for construction to begin, and of those only 70 remain on the market. Meaning there are 430 people having homes built that will need window treatments. Oh, my. . . The only cost to us to participate is a $100 door prize contribution. It’s not that bad, considering booth space at some of these events can run two, three, and even four hundred dollars.
I guess that’s it for now. I’m developing a blog over at Blogger where I can post photos. I don’t think I’ll be writing much there, but I may include links here from time to time so you can see my photos! We’ll see. Maybe I’ll be able to “scrape up” the $$$ to go premium with Xanga and then keep it all in one spot. There are just so many other things I need $$$ for . . . new stove, new fridge, new sofa, . . .
