I'm really sorry about not posting anything quilting or even relatively coherent for the last 2 days. I definitely feel a bit out of whack about that and am planning to get back in the swing of things very soon.
Really more than anything else it's this DVD problem that is really, really bothering me.
Like I said yesterday, it was the icing on the cake and pushed all of my already shaky emotions over James's birthday into the realm of "too much".
My cup runneth over indeed.
But I'm working through it.
After 2 days my DVD manufacturer finally got back to me with a snippy, flippant email that basically said that the problem was entirely on my end.
My response to that is "Do you REALLY think I would intentionally launch a DVD that didn't work???"
I know for a fact that the sample worked, the master worked, and all the videos I've tested all work just fine. It's just so extremely frustrating to have that kind of attitude thrown at me in the middle of all of this.
Needless to say, that manufacturer is getting the boot.
I'm already working with another company to produce the DVDs that has much, much better customer service and I can produce the dvds in a 2 disc set, packaged in 1 box like I always wanted.
As with all things, life is a learning experience, and I've learned my lesson to test at least 5 DVDs from every case from now on. It might be time consuming, but it's necessary to make sure a problem like this never happens again.
So I'm taking the rest of the day to redesign the DVD covers and also work on the new update to the quilting store.
The new stencils from Quilting Creations just came in and they look AWESOME. Seeing these stencils and knowing what you guys will be able to make from them really gave me a boost even in the middle of all of this "stuff".
Hopefully I can get all of this done and go quilt soon. I haven't been able to work on the new quilt or quilting designs much in the last few days and that's what I really want to do the most.
Off to work!
