hey guys what's going on welcome back to the  channel i got a new camera so it's gonna be a   little weird recording because i'm used to like  different view but whatever so it's been a while probably on tick-tock guys guys link  at the bottom he just got a tick-tock he just got a tick-tock and he's just been  obsessing over this it's hilarious because   i try to make a tic-tac like a year ago  but he thought it was crazy and now like   he'll just be dancing out of nowhere and i keep  forgetting to exist i'm like what the heck is   he doing i'm like oh that's it so we have to go to  the storage unit get some boxes because we are out   of a few things for aj blanks they've just been in  storage so i'm gonna go see what we can find there   we have like over 200 boxes there i think i think  i don't know i've been there in like a while since   we moved so i don't know keenan goes to storage  i don't ever go him and his father go so what   are they trying to find we can find see if we can  see and then come back home i got some stuff from   mighty hoop that i got from the show and i got  some stuff from all stuff i need to open up i'm   gonna go ahead and show you guys that but yes this  camera is a lot heavier so i need to put you guys   down and i will see you guys later so we're at the  storage unit now can you always make sure there's   not the mouse or something that comes because  i'm terrified so he gotta look at the place first   and then i will go ah no no run over my feet i  don't need any mickey mouse minnie mouse none of   that none of that so i'll show you guys storage  in a second he has never been to a storage unit from rome excuse me sir you can't go out  here there's cars hello hello sir hello   yeah daddy got you figure out what i need  and then we'll see you guys back in the car   okay so we're able to find two six 12 month girls  ruffle white short sleeve body suits still kept my   12 to 18. i have some but like that for myself not  for enough of you guys so i guess we just sold out   pretty quick um for those our next restock would  be like mid october like i'll say mid to eight   just mid just mid i hate giving dates and it's  wrong so mid october so restock those and yeah   so we are going to head back home so i can pull  these aj blanks orders like i literally told him   to go to storage unit yesterday and this morning  i went upstairs to pull orders i'm like oh man i   forgot we need them from the storage unit thing is  our garage is jam-packed right now so i literally   um it's hard to see anything like there's so  many boxes in the garage i think there's over   300 boxes in the garage so we try to organize it  by shipments but like sometimes things get mixed   up and confusing so it's hard to find it if we  have it in there like i have a whole manifest of   what should be in the garage and everything  but sometimes you forget to cross it off so   things happen so yeah head back home probably  pull those orders um and then i have a few essie   orders to do none of them have to go out  today open my etsy shop back up yesterday   i will be um making a website for my kids custom  design shirts now um so it'll be on shopify so   that's in the works ish like in the works meaning  i bought a shopify store for but i haven't done   anything with it so see you guys back at the house  you want to tell the vlog hi no say hi say hi   let's go oh you ready to go all right so  we will see you guys back at the house   okay we have made it home um down here in  the basement so so i'm gonna go ahead and   start pulling these orders real quick there's not  that many orders and i do have to check inventory   because it says out of a few things that i know i  saw boxes for upstairs in the beginning i didn't   do my inventory as well as i should have and  that's just the truth um but since we've been   at this house i've been doing a better job of  actually doing inventory accurately because we get   like a bunch of uh shipping manifests and tells  us the quantity size of every single order so   um i've just been adding what's here i keep some  for myself obviously because i do have an etsy   shop um that i use these blanks for but in the  beginning like all of 2020 and like half of 2021   i didn't i didn't do it the right way i don't  know why i don't know why but you let me learn   you grow as you go and you figure out what works  best go ahead and pull these orders and then   we will uh get back later and yeah i'm gonna  keep looking this way because it's a habit you   see i'm looking over here i'm not looking  at the camera but there's a screen on this   camera that's on the side versus on top when  it was on top i was always looking dead in the   camera because it was right there but now the  screen's on the side i look like i'm talking   over here but i'm supposed to be talking right  here but whatever i'll get used to it as i go   new camera guys like this camera is amazing  i look so cute but no okay whatever let me uh   do what i'm supposed to be doing right now i  know we really haven't had a tour down here um   because i was like oh when i get it clean i'll  do it never got it clean enough to do it but um   it's kind of like just you know a straight-up  mess around here that's just the truth we try   to get stuff put away clean as quickly as possible  but then like it doesn't happen and then like over   here we have a bunch of uh boys black hd i call  them htv shirts because they're one of the first   few shipments we got in last year and there was  like one batch that wasn't as good as the rest um   it was thinner and i honestly don't know which  one it was so all the black shirts that we got   last year um i'm just calling them htv shows  because they're a little bit thinner um i've since   changed to thicker black shirts but again i don't  know which shipment it was um that was not the   best shipment for like embroidery wise so i was  like i don't know i don't want to send somebody   something that's a little bit thinner so we just  went ahead and just marked them all as htv shirts   so you will see them on the website they're 350  instead of five something um so they are cheaper   so yes i'm just calling them htv shirts and when  they're gone they're gone just wanted to mention   that i know some people have already noticed it on  the website i think we put them up like two weeks   ago or something so just mentioning that but i  need to go ahead and pull these orders real quick   and get these done um so that i can keep going  with my day and guys riley is at school so like   it's so different but it's good that she's getting  educated but it's just different i it's like it's   it's a lot uh easier i guess not easy or easier  i don't know it's just it's just it's just odd   long story short like having roman although  i'm not the one watching him it's kenan um   it's just different it's just so calm i guess  because each child is great by themselves we put   them both together it's like a tornado like  they just hype each other up they like each   other's height man so they go crazy together  but when it's just one of each they're just   it's a totally different child you know totally  different so roman has been so well behaved he's   not doing his parkour stunt man things anymore  when she comes back he goes back to it but like   during the day he's just calm chill child but  again i'm not the one watching him it's his daddy   right now so again let me go ahead and pull these  orders so we can be done okay so we have a few   of the orders pulled um so i'm  gonna go ahead and start packaging do okay so i just like to clean to see if i'm asleep  it took about an hour ish to pack all these orders   i was done and then like four orders came in back  to back so i was like let me just go ahead and   pull them is it noon it's not noon yet so i try  to ship everything um that comes in by noon same   day try to some days we get too many orders  but this week keenan's mom is on vacation so   no child care so trying to balance shipping  everything is a bit harder because only one   person working normally is keenan and i um so then  i have to go upstairs and do etsy orders um so   i think i'm just gonna do this down here for  now because roman is not asleep unfortunately   um so i'm gonna try to sneak upstairs and be  like super quiet so we'll see if i can make   it i don't know i should probably turn the  lights off the electric bill oh my god guys i did not expect the electric bill we were getting  in this house like i doubled my last electoral   bill thinking that was gonna be enough no it's way  higher so now i make sure i turn off these lights   shoot even if it saves me a penny let's see and  i don't want to turn any lights on in the house   down here i kind of have to because  i need to see the blanks but like   need my airpods upstairs nah you better get  that natural light during the day all right   hold on all right okay well i can't hold you  guys upstairs because i need to hold my computer   so i'll see you guys later okay so back upstairs  roman is he just fell down fell down while he just   fell he went down for a nap fell asleep whatever  so um i have a few etsy orders to open wow   dang it all right so i have a few etsy orders to  work on um nothing's due they came in yesterday   i just opened my shop yesterday i got four  orders yesterday um i have some supplies   from all stitch that came in yesterday i also  have some mighty hoops that came in um this one   so i got a new mighty hoop um the 11 by 13 13 by  11 whatever i already had one from one milk cup   but i am doing adult stuff um more so i needed  a second one because it was annoying only being   able to use one melco for the adult stuff and  then i also got the backing holder because i   hate keeping stuff so i did get this this this  came in um the day before i left for the show   um so i was mad um because i wish i had it  sooner but it's here and then under my laptop and then i got some more stuff from  mighty who's gonna go ahead and open it   now also guys don't forget that you can  call mighty hoop and i'll put the number   right here and use codes kids custom so  you can get free shipping on your orders   mighty hoops works for all multi-needle  machines as well as the baby lock one   needle and then the brother one needle  persona and the alliance so go ahead and so i asked for a five by five inch backing  holder um for the logos because i didn't have it   and then i got they sent me two  okay i do have two uh two malcos so okay so so um this is the eight point eight  seven five by five so i guess like a nine by five   my hoop so i got two of these   and these are for the baby gowns i want to  do the names on the baby gowns embroidered and i'm gonna keep this together before i  mess it up so those go together and then   the bigger one um this can work for pants  sweatshirt sleeves a lot of different things so   we will set these up when we are ready to use  them so that is what i've got from my hoop so   just have to screw the arms on  and then that'll be it for this well here guys i know if  you watched my live from the   impressions expo but malcolm had like this table  thing that rolled to put the laptop on i bought   it i haven't set it up yet but like i'm so happy  about that because right now i'm using this little   i'm using this uh colorful cart but like it was so  much better because it's a rolling thing and it's   made for and then i can use it as my nightstand  because i try to watch my shows at night but roman   is always in the way so if i put that next  to it it's like the perfect angle to watch   my computer because i watch netflix i  watch my k-dramas before i go to bed i just i just don't like their packaging  they measure inconvenience open it's like they make their own boxes so like  this is a post office box but they made it   the size they needed so it just  makes opening stuff so much harder   so i got more bobbins these  are the magnetic bobbins and then i got two packs of needles i got the  75 11 ball points and the 65 9 ball points i   like the organ needles better than um the  other brands they just work best for me   in the milko um so these are what i use and like  i said i'm doing adult stuff now so i definitely   need the 75 11's because i'm not just using aj  blinks all right so i put my bottoms in here   it's just easier for me than having to open this  every time so it's just how i do it and it goes   in this drawer i have over here that you can't see  but in this drawer i have all my broody supplies   um just wrap keep it all i'm sure i'm gonna  use this for something else eventually   but for now this works i put my needles in  here keep everything organized keenan keeps   texting me i think the hardest thing about doing  adult stuff now is one adult stuff costs so much   and then to the inventory issues because  like everything is sold out so i find   myself checking the websites multiple times  a day like yesterday they said they weren't   going to be getting anything until october-ish one  business said that they would be getting it in um   early september so i looked at one of them  and it was like zero then i looked again and   it said there was 36 of the item i needed  i ordered 20 but it's just like it's so   expensive adult stuff is just crazy expensive  and like it's hard trying to run an etsy shop   when you don't have the inventory you need  so luckily one of my etsy orders that i have   is that i had a customer who asked for a  specific shirt i made sure i asked her the   name and number and the size and when she first  asked for this listing because i didn't have it   it was never made and it was a new idea i wanted  to make anyways so i just made the sample on the   t-shirt size the name everything so she's okay  i'll buy it in like a month or so i was like okay   so she just ordered it yesterday went to my etsy  shop on i was like yes that's one order that's   done like i don't have to do it because it's  already made so i have three halloween shirts   to make but i do want to make like fall items um  so i'll probably be doing that today i don't want   this vlog to be like super long i know it's been  i only uploaded like two videos all of august so   i want to get back into recording and making  videos so if you guys can like comment down below   any ideas of things that you would like me to make  any videos um so yeah also guys don't forget labor   day is on monday so the post office is closed i  know it's so easy to forget holidays and shipping   so i just wanted to mention that while i  remember just now i mean it's in syria now i'm trying to find this design now no i can't  find it i had it in my shopping cart a while ago   like a long time ago when  they first like released it   and i'm pretty sure i already bought it  but i don't know what website it was from so um so okay so here are the two shirts we got finished  today i swear it looked better i thought it   was gonna look better than it did but hey  it's made it's a shirt so we'll put it up   and this one so i'm gonna go ahead and get one  more shirt made i did an order for an adult a   sweatshirt that is almost done um i pause it  real quick just so i could finish this video   um another i'm gonna do a  shirt with skeletons on it i don't know we'll see um but have about 45  minutes we have to go get riley from school   get some coffee and come back home um but  yeah it's pretty much it for today's video   guys thanks for sticking bye and watching  it and i will see you guys in the next video   and stay
