Well, the Bumble sale on Wednesday was a great success, thank you so much! I honestly kind of can't believe it - but all 60 Bumbles were sold in under 7 minutes - that's crazy! I know a lot of people wanted one, but weren't able to get one, or had items disappear from their carts, or issues with Paypal. I looked into it, and I honestly don't think there's anything wrong with the cart system; it's just a matter of overload. My shop had 700 hits right when the store opened, and even if half of those people were attempting to purchase a Bumble, it's still 6x the number of Bumbles available, and in those situations, even the slightest difference in hardware or software efficiency can make all the difference.
I know that more people want my work than I can currently supply, and though it's "a good problem to have" for me, it still frustrates me that I can't get more folks the things that they want. I'm working VERY hard this year to get more Dust Bunnies out to more people. There are 2 vinyl toy projects in the works, as well as minis (which I have not announced yet, but I'm having them produced for me in large amounts, and I'm hoping to sell editions monthly), as well as some other projects.
So, with that said, back to work!
