Hey folks! Look, I'm still here! Not much, but once in a while. ;-) Onion Grove Mercantile is going a little crazy now....crazytown crazy. A few pins by my magical friend named Michael and I've been catapulted into the sign stratosphere....and let me tell you, it's a darn fun place to orbit! Busy place, thus the lack of attention to poor ole Notes From the Heartland. I've been learning lots about business....how to stay organized...how to keep books (sorta)...how to NOT dip my hair in the paint EVERY.TIME.I.PAINT...I mean, not like that happens EVERY time....okay, it happens EVERY time.
This past week brought a new lesson. Custom work is risky....unless you demand funds up front. This poor girl pictured above is an orphan. Painted, ready to go, never paid for. Lesson learned...the hard way.
