Help yourself to a slice of pi

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

Anyone for “pi?”

My teeny tiny tackle this week is to master international parcel mail. I purposely made the latest batch extra small and extra light so that I can use the flat rated, still hideously expensive, parcel rate.

I’ll keep you posted as to my success…….or otherwise. I may need a guinea pig to practice on, someone trustworthy who can let me know that I effectively sent them a pile of broken china.

Don’t forget to check out other “tacklers” as well as “Trish.” You don’t need to have a blog to join in, merely a postal address. Afterall Father’s Day is the 21st of June both here and there, and quite possibly everywhere.

Come to think of it, what better guinea pig could I find than “crystal” afterall I’m sure she’s the perfect match for the “farming life.” I may not share her extraordinary insight, but we do share a “single handedness” and an awful lot of “laundry.”

My tackle this week is a hugely tiny task of how to get up and running on “Etsy.”

I don’t know if any of you have any experience of “Etsy” but hopefully I’ll be ready tomorrow for the start of Autism Awareness Month.

If anyone has any advice you’d like to offer I’d be very grateful for any tips you might be able to share. I’m especially looking to anticipate problems, irritations and other annoyances, things that you did not like about your purchasing experience. I am especially terrified of the Post Office / mailing trips as getting to the post office is a complete nightmare for my family and sadly they’re not open when my children are asleep. How tolerant will people be if they place an order and I can’t get to the post office for a week? Not very I suspect.

Additionally I now have a load of commissions and bowls that are already spoken for, for a wide variety of charitable events which means I have hardly any to sell. What a twit. Clearly I am in need of some sound business advice.

Her Royal Highness and Pi dish Two

He flits about the house following orders from his older brother, “yes your Highness,” he quips in mid flight, which seems odd for a die in the wood republican.

Only a year ago we had to endure the neverending tirade about the “evils of England” and now all of a sudden he has turned into a serf.

I decide to check his political allegiance.

“Hey sonny jim!”
“I am not dah Jim.”
“True……..so when you called him Highness, did you mean this kind of highness?”

“No dummy. Dat is a wimmins.”
“Of course. You mean this kind of highness, right?”

“Right.”

Did I mention that his big brother grew an inch and a half in less than a month over on “Twitter?”

Lastly, on a final note in response to the “criticism” that the bowls were too ’empty’ meaning ‘too much blank space,’

I have my final offerings:-


And yes, if I ever get them fired, glazed and fired again, they will be available on Etsy.

Cheers dears
