A Day of Invoicing and Shipping


I’ve written my initials, in marker,  on the back of each poster.

I spent most of today and yesterday typing up invoices and packing up my Show Your Soul posters.  I always get worried the first time I ship something.  Worried that it will travel well and arrive on time.  This is the first time I’ve ever mailed a poster in a tube.

The first batch was swaddled in tape.  My great fear that the plastic ends of the cardboard tubes would pop off  somewhere between my house and yours.

Jon said people would be cursing me for using so much tape, they wouldn’t be able to open the tube up.  Wendy at the post office,  who was impressed with the sturdy tube,  kindly suggested one piece of tape instead of three.

So tomorrows fifty-something posters will make their way into the world with only once piece of tape on either end.  But I have a good feeling about it.  I’ve sold almost 100 posters already. (Thank you all)  If this keeps up, I’ll have to buy more shipping tubes.

  1. …hohohoh, l hope it keeps up, Maria – hail to the shipping tubes!!!
    Looking forward to receiving my tape, sorry, l meant poster 🙂

    Isn’t it nice how life takes care of our unknown plans – did you ever think that you’d be shipping over 100 posters of your exquisite quilt to people everywhere?

    New quilt reminds me of a Kandinsky-type painting – quite remarkable and lovely.
    Will let you know when poster arrives 🙂 Thank you, Sabina

    1. Ha! shipping to Canada will be the test Sabina. Extra tape I think! I’ll have to look at the new quilt again after reading your comment.

  2. Maria – My posters arrived earlier this week and are in excellent condition. I appreciate the care you took in packing them! The 3 pieces of tape were not difficult to tackle – no cursing was involved. 🙂

    I so love this poster. It’s in my home office and is a joy to look at. You are such a talented artist.

    All the best,

    1. Thank you for letting me know Pam. It seems she does travel well! I’ll be sure to tell Jon, the tape wasn’t a problem for you. Thank you!
