One cart, two cart, gray cart, blue cart!

(with apologies to Dr. Seuss)

Bought another folding cart for the business yesterday. I'd been contemplating it for a while, and with the item in question being on sale at Harbor Freight, it was a good time to do it. Bought another two containers of bungee cords, too, because they come in very useful with the cart.

This will make load-in and load-out quicker, which is all to the good. Less waiting for what we can't get on one cart in one trip at setup, and less babysitting the same stuff at teardown.

Buttons, buttons, I have the buttons...

So, I'm deciding which buttons to retire, and what to replace them with.

Today, I will press more new buttons and redo parts of my display. The old buttons will either go into multi-packs based on series or theme, or else into my "treasure chest of savings" (the bargain box).

Prep work

I've spent the past two days prepping dice to be made into jewelry. It's not my favorite part of the job, but it needs to be done. :)

At least, once the prep is finished, it'll make making the jewelry much easier. I also sorted both the "raw" and "finished" dice by color; it should be way better than digging through dice trying to find matching ones. :)
