Pachetti is "packages" in Italian.
And that is what this post is all about!!

For about 2 weeks now I have been putting together some packages and plans to build my business. As a Virgo, I am such a perfectionist (which really stinks sometimes!), so you can bet I've been through and through all of this with a fine-toothed comb five times. Over the past week, this led to much frustration on my end,  but I'm hoping it will all be worth it and it will get me to the next level of Fatto con L'Amore.

When I was first given these ideas (BIG thanks to Steve's awesome aunt and my wonderful uncle) I was just going to work out logistics for one plan, but as I got down to brainstorming, I thought, "I like variety. I like to choose." I figure all of you guys would like the same thing--options. Fast forward one week and I found myself with FOUR different plans. Exciting right? I bet you can't wait to see what each entails. I am SO excited to show you what I have been working on on the business side of things.

Staying true to my Italian heritage, all but one of the following plans are named in Italian. I have to admit, coming up with the names of the plans was actually fun and really made me think. Here they are:
Pay Ahead Plan (have you figured out which one is not in Italian yet? Ha ha)
Compleanno      (Birthday Package)
Splendido          (Splendid Package)
Squisito             (Exquisite Package)

Aren't those names fun to say? I almost feel like I'm reading an Olive Garden menu!

Okay, moving on, here are the plans!

Pay Ahead Plan
This plan is pretty self-explanatory.
Paying ahead for your goods opens an account with Fatto con L'Amore in your name.
There is a minimum amount due to start this plan of $10.00, which covers:
3 cards and shipping                or                8 gift/wine tags and shipping

$20.00 covers: 6 cards and shipping                or                16 gift/wine tags and shipping
Why this is great: When you have an event that sneaks up on you (like so many of them do!), you can place an order with me for a card, gift tag or wine tag and I can design it and send it ASAP, since it is already paid for.
Shipping generally takes 2-3 business days(Mon-Sat).
I will advise you when your balance is getting low, at which point you will have the choice of paying more into your account or just using up the balance that is left.
**Once you pre-pay, those funds must be used towards a product of Fatto con L'Amore. They cannot be refunded.

The following packages require payment in full upon placement of your order.

And there you have it! I apologize for the long wait on these. I really have no excuse for dragging my butt on publishing these to you. Steve took me to see Jim Gaffigan last night--we had a ball. If you've never heard his comedy, I highly suggest it. His Hot Pocket bit had me in tears last night from laughing so hard, even though I've heard it many times before.  I was off all day today since I was out late last night with my Stevie, but I spent it cleaning, going to do laundry, and making green cupcakes for my company this weekend.

If the weather is nice tomorrow, I'll be going to the zoo with them, but if it is yucky out, we'll go have some fun at the casino. 
Maybe we'll get lucky since it's St. Patty's day? 
Hopefully Ida will be looking down on me and helping me win (Miss you every day Ida! 9/23/26-3/17/07).  

Once Steve gets out of work tomorrow afternoon, we'll head out to dinner, and hopefully catch the Sabres game after that.

One more thing!! If you could all keep your fingers crossed for me as I was offered an interview for a full-time position yesterday. If I could land this job, it would be awesome in so many ways! Really appreciate your good vibes!

Wine Gift Tag $1.00 USD
PS I do have order forms, if you are interested and know which package you would like, let me know and I'll email it to you.
