| First YouTube Video
So about a
week ago, I asked my husband Larry to help me with my first YouTube
video. Or was it him telling me we need to do a YouTube video? Well
either way, we pulled out the camera and thought we would take a shot at addressing a few comments recently about my packaging.

I think the final push to get it done occurred earlier in the day when we were shopping at Costco and we found the supplies for shrink wrapping that I have been using. So, much to my shock, out comes his trusty phone and camera to capture this monumental activity.
As I said, several have made comments about my packaging technique for a few of my shipments; shrink wrapping and thus the idea was born.
Now Larry, (my husband) was quite eager to get the camera set-up and it finally occurred to me where his motivation was coming from. For this most recent Christmas, his beloved tripod was replaced and he had yet to use it!
So with camera set, we made our first effort at creating a YouTube video. Check it out by clicking here and let me know what you think.
Also, watch for an upcoming blog entry about recovering kitchen chair seat cushions. A much needed remodeling project for the kitchen!

hi i seen the video of packing material I liked and I'm anxious to see if my order arrives so

Andrea, yes your order was shrink wrapped so it should arrive to you in great shape. Let me know how your fabric looks when it arrives. :-)
Karen, thank you so much for your comment! Yes I usually always shrink wrap my international orders. I do this mainly because I know they have a long journey ahead of them and I also want to fit as much in the envelope as possible. I think you are right I probably could fit more than $60.00 in an envelope. I can usually get 8 yds in so I think I will

Hmmm... it looks like I need to see if I can increase the size of the comment box so that the comments are not cut off so soon.
What I was going to say is I will look at the shipping rates and do some adjustments on them this weekend. If I can get your order in 1 flat rate envelope and your are charged for 2 I will refund you the excess shipping.
Thanks again for your comments,

Thank you Lori. Some sites fit 9 yards without shrink wrap so I'm sure you would have no trouble. It's wonderful knowing one's precious order is well protected on its journey.

Enjoyed your YouTube video showing how you shrink warp the fabric. We don't have Costco in Australia and I have never seen anyone shrink wrap food, although some products come that way at the supermarket. A few months ago I had a fabric order (from another site) arrive with water damage and a badly torn envelope. This won't happen with an order from you. You could easily fit more than $60 worth in an envelope using shrink wrap, making shipping more cost effective perhaps. When my order arrived
