seriously, why am I THIS picky?

it is 1 in the morning and I am staring at the monitor trying to find outer packaging envelopes that don't make me vomit on the way to the post office. IT IS RIDICULOUS! I have wrapped my outer packaging in kraft paper from the beginning. do you know why? (I hope you know the answer!). it is because it is very "laura ingalls". well, now that I have a packaging manager, she insists the process I use takes too long. it really does. 23 packages took us 3 hours the other day with BOTH of us doing it. I resorted to buying the ugly, white tyvek envelopes. it took her 2 hours for 21 packages. big difference, huh?
I couldn't look at the packages in the basket. they were ugly. it was no longer cute packages that would make people happy when they opened their mailbox. it was more of a, geez, that company needs help with their packaging. this is the silly part, these

I don't mind because they are matte. and these I love

but only if they are grocery bag kraft and not the manilla envelope. and I love these

but hate all the writing on the back of them.
is this really what keeps me up at night?

I am the same way...things like that keep me up at night too. Last night I went to bed at 11, but I don't think the wheels in my head turned off until around 12:30...I should have just gotten out of bed and worked on something!

So, don't feel bad you are picky...it is a good thing!
