So what have you been up to so far this Monday? I hope it’s started as a productive one?
I woke at 3.30...yes am! I realised that I will only be in my studio for 5 days for the rest of this month, so I lay awake trying to come up with how I’m going to make this work...... I gave up at 5.15 and dragged myself to the gym for a swim. Which ended up being a good idea as I was trying to avoid thinking about work and managed to push myself into swimming 110 lengths either that or it was the competition from the other swimmer in the lane with me which pushed me lol. I mentally congratulated myself and realised that if I can make 5 days in my studio work...... Well the adrenalin has truly worn off now and I’m lagging a bit and unsure now.
I started my working day in a meeting (yes just me at the meeting lol) which has helped me focus and prioritise how I am going to tackle my commission pieces plus organise the open night which is next month (event will be posted on Facebook next week, so you can book your space then) and figure out my social media postings plus update my shop on both Facebook and my website, not to mention working on new pieces which will be shown on the open night......OK that does sound a lot but when I had my meeting it seemed very doable......watch this space lol.
Anyhow last week was a fun one.....I had a beautiful pearl necklace to restring and make longer (I was very relieved to find matching coloured pearls). I got lots of IT work done and started working on my new vintage collection photobook. Not to mention I had date day with the hubby which led us to the Grand Central observatory for a cocktail. The view was amazing (photo above), I recommend going just for that alone but the cocktail was lovely also...I got the Albert!
Saturday was one of those beautiful Autumn days so after the kids swimming lessons we took our selves off to the beach to collect some sea glass and have a bit of fun.
We now have loads of sea glass but i haven’t quite figured out what I am going to do with it all?
On Sunday there was a big change in the weather so we decided to put the fire on (first of the season), it was lovely just relaxing with the kids they also decided that the little bits of sea glass should be made into rings for them....a necklace and choker followed, so a little bit of work was done but well worth it (first sea glass jewellery pieces).
Well thats about all for today.....I’ve only got two more hours and a long list to get through. As always you can hear all my news and offers first by signing up to my newsletter (you can always cancel if its not for you).
Until next week
