Happy Monday everyone :)
So what type of Monday are you having? Today I think its gonna be a pat on the back day...........
I got outta bed this Morning at 5.15 because I was going swimming plus I needed petrol and milk. As I was coming down the stairs I got my first glimpse of the snow and I have to be honest here, my first thought was to go back to bed. However, I was wide awake and knew no matter what I needed petrol and milk and it was mostly easier to get this now rather than later when potentially the snow would be thicker and the traffic heavier. I also went for my swim, I did a few less lengths than normal which would annoy me but today I thought for every activity that I achieve I will give myself a pat on the back instead of feeling like I’ve let myself down in some way.
Just in case you missed it, last week was half term here, so I wasn't in my studio at all! I really thought I might have been able to get a few hours in over the week but no, it wasn't to be. Although I did get a commission piece off, which was something. So I have a long list of admin which I hope to get through today, plus focus my mind for the week and try not to get distracted by some of the designs which I came up with last week (all for my new collection which will be released in May) and start making (really you'd think a jewellers life was full of making!).
I will have a newsletter coming out tomorrow announcing some changes to my jewellery classes and information on a jewellery sale, as I need to make room for my new collection plus new items will be added to collections I have already. If you’re interested and have not yet signed up to my newsletter then do so now (you can unsubscribe at any time if it’s not for you).
I'm giving myself a pat on the back now as I post todays blog (I hope you give yourself a pat on the back today for everything you achieve...you deserve it)!
Until next week, take care.
