Rubberstampchat's Fall Convention Closed Monday All reports seem to indicate that everyone had a good time, picked up lots of bargains and discovered new vendors. gg designs was happy to participate in an on-line event again. It's been a while. And, we must be out of practice!!! Got two customers and their addresses and orders mixed up and spend hours and many, many emails trying to untangle the confusion. It's finally cleared up (we hope) but it wil be a while before ggd regains it's "good customer service/fast shipping" reputation!!! I'm really grateful to the two customers involved for their patience while I tried to sort it all out and finally found the error--mine, of course!!! : ) (Red Face) In any case.....the convention spurred us on to revamping the $$ Store, which is now a TRUE 99c Store. Inventory will change regularly so be sure to check it out from time to time, to find images you may have missed. Once again we are reassessing the "carving schedule" (or lack thereof)! In our hey day, we carved and posted new items weekly but that hasn't happened for a long time. It's fun to carve, but expensive to turn the results into rubber. So, our goal now is a new sheet of rubber monthly. We'll have to wait and see if this turns out to be too expensive/costly to be realistic. But, though carving is relaxing, pleasant, fun, it's like most skills......use it or loose it. And we're not ready to throw in the towel (or the carving tools) just yet. So....check us out--frequently! And harrass us if we don't produce! Thanks a lot everybody. Charlotte P.S. By the way....check out the Gazette to see a first sheet of rubber from talented carver Michelle Morland. It would be great if you'd drop her a word of encourgement (by clicking on the image of her carvings). She has fresh, clean images that are very appealing and it would be super if she is able to "jump in" and join the vast ocean of rubberstamp artists and carvers sharing their skills with the Internet World.
