Michaels... how I hate thee.

Thursday, December 9, 2010

As I type this, I am on the phone with the fourth Michaels I've called today.  I need some 6 x 6 canvases because my pop art canvases have really taken off (by word-of-mouth, not my shop) and I need enough to fill 6 orders (I have 9 orders total but I lucked out and found 3 packs at the Parma store last weekend).  So when I leave work today, I'm hitting two Michaels that are sorta kinda on my way home (about an hour out of the way total).  I probably won't get home until 8 or so, but if I get my precious canvases, that's all that matters!  Who knew canvases were so in demand that I would have to spend hours calling every single Michaels in Northeast Ohio?  And apparently Michaels hasn't heard of a little thing called e-commerce because they don't sell a single thing on their web site.  Anywho, I hope I end up with enough after my excursion tonight, but if not, Dick Blick has some that will work and they can get them to me by Tuesday.  I'm already stressed enough about getting all my Christmas gifts made, and now I have all of these canvases to do!  But I'm not complaining because the canvases mean having some extra money in my pocket.

I know I missed WIWW again, but I'm telling you, the past two weeks have been absolutely crazy.  Last week I was working on my Christmas cards while the kids were napping and all night after work, then this week, I've been working on presents and trying to locate canvases.  Next week means packing, the next week means unpacking, and then it's Christmas.  Sheesh.  Okay, enough complaining, I have too much work to do.


  1. Oh no! I hope the trip will be worth it.

    Have you tried other online stores?

    Just Better Together is having 2 giveaways!

  2. Good luck with everything!!! Your pop art canvases look so good, I'm not surprised so many people want time!
