I'm Sorry, Did You Say Ten Thousand?


WOOT!! I couldn't believe my ears when one of my clients said that he was talking to a colleague about my soap and they want to place a ten thousand piece order! I am channeling my inner Bob the Builder (Can we make it? YES WE CAN!!) None of the specifics are ironed out and I'm super~superstitious, so I'm not counting any chickens yet. But I'm so incredibly excited! I just had to share! :) Cross your fingers for me!!!In other news, Max continues to heal from his neck injury. Every time he lifts his head in a funny way I hold my breath, but so far so good. Really, he's back to his old (crazy puppy) self in so many ways. He chewed through his lead in 57 seconds while we were with the vet for a check up. *SIGH* (smile)

Ten thousand??? I'd be having heart attack right about now. You'll be burning through a few molds, I guess!

Pajama Mama said...

TEN THOUSAND!!! My WORD! If I didn't live across the country, I'd volunteer to help.

WOW! That's great! I hope it all works out and you don't collapse in the process. Maybe Max could help? ;)

Holy poop!!!!!!! What amazing news! Super duper congratulations!!! ♥

I'm just down in PA, so if you get behind, I'll bring the family up for a working vacation. ;)

Michelle said...

Wow!! Congratulations on that huge order. I'm sure we won't be seeing you on the blog for a while cuz you will be a busy bee. I'm very happy for you, this is so exciting!!

OMG! Way to go :D Hope it comes off! You'll be busy for a while if it does. Happy to see the mutley is getting better too.
It's like Christmas all over again :)

I've never heard of an order that big!! I think we are a little envious and also super happy for you. Good news for you and puppy.

Couldn't have happened to a nicer woman.

:O)

Heidi said...

Whoa. That's fantastic!! How exciting for you =) You'll have to let us know how it all turns out.

OMG!! CONGRATS Heather!! You so deserve this! I doubt I've even made 10,000 products, period. So one one (possiable) sale?! I don't think I would be able to pull it off!
And glad to hear Max is doing so much better!

Enchanted said...

Wow! I just got an order for 100 and that has me hyped up. I couldn't even think of doing 10,000.

Heather@Twin Birch said...

Thanks for all of the love, girls! I am having a heart attack! But a good one! I wish all of you could come help! It would be so fun! I'm so thankful that Ramsey is here in town and can help dig me out!

I'm off today to discuss the details of the order. Fingers crossed!!! :)

Kris said...

WOW!!! Wonderful for you! I'd say that's a GOOD problem to have! Congrats!

egassner said...

And how did details go? Is it a 'GO'?

Carrie @ Under the Willow said...

Just checking in--like Elizabeth--is it a go? Crossing my fingers for you!

BIG HUG--to Mr. Max too!

Anne-Marie said...

That would be wonderful. Get half of the money up front... that's a painful lesson I learned a long time ago so definitely learn from my expensive mistake. =)

Anxiously awaiting news ...

Heather@Twin Birch said...

Hey everyone! Thanks so much for checking in on the 10,000 soap sale :) It's still pending... we have to agree on a lot before it goes through! As the very sage Anne-Marie
mentioned, I need a signed agreement with a 50% deposit. The purchase has to go through a few people, too. No matter how this works out, the purchaser was over the moon about my soap :) so, it a huge win!!

Meanwhile, I've been really busy with other orders. I know I need to post, I'm working on it in my head while I pour lip balm. :)

I'm so glad to have all of your support. I would have had a full blown freak-out this week if not for all of your love! xoxo

Teresa R said...

WOOT, Heather!!!! I am sooo excited for you!

Also very excited that Max is healing well; please give him an extra hug for me!

Sorry I'm so late to congratulate you...don't know where the week went. :}
