where did this week go?
it flew by for me...how about you?
its nice to have more time to design new things for the shop, get orders out on time, and make it to the post office in the promised amount of time! i was very grateful for the orders that came in...and the post office staff is starting to get to know me a little bit more. i think they are figuring out they will probably be seeing me every other day from now on. and someone finally asked if i was doing "some e-bay thing." of course, i said "yeah something like that" then told her about my shop. and yes i did have a business card (if you are new to growing your shop, always have business cards on you. you never know!)
and because of all those p.o. trips, my room has been a little cluttered this week, but last night i was able to tackle most of it - organizing my little corner of the room that i call my "studio." back in chicago, i had an inspiration wall made up of twine, nails and clothes pins...so i hope build a new on this week. i also found my old bulletin board that i plan to use for part of inspiration wall! i normally tack or clip up pictures from magazines, ones that give me ideas for my shop or for art in general.
it always doesn't hurt to have more color to your walls!
the one area of my room that is somewhat organized is all my mailing supplies. it's nice to have them all in one contaniner so if i have to make a quick run all the packaging supplies are in the same spot!
and look what lovelies i have! they are the hair clips sandy of sandyalamode gave me at our meet-up. i'm privileged that i got one of the first pairs she made before she opened up her shop! are they not so darling?! i keep them on the little card she gave me. love them. be sure to grab a pair from her shop if you haven't yet!
from all my cleaning and orders, i took the time to make myself my own headband! i love green and especially this shade i think is perfect for fall. i might throw a couple of them in the shop.
what do you think? you like?
and of course, plenty of breaks to video-chat with ryan! well, kind of. he doens't have a camera, but i can hear him. (yeah, it's not really fair that he gets to see and hear me, but oh well. ) it's how i save on minutes right now ('cause i have free minutes after 7pm or weekends) so it works for now. but i'll see him next weekend...'cause he's coming for my b-day!! woohoo!!
and oooh, of course tv-breaks! i loved the premiere of the middle. i cannot get over the hecks. they are so hilarious. now don't be shocked but i missed the premiere of modern family! i do plan to watch it on hulu sometime tonight or this weekend. i missed glee's premiere too but i caught up the next day and goodness, charice is soooo good. i'm currently obsessed with her telephone-battle with lea michelle. and of course, who doesn't tear up when you watch her sing "listen"? and if her voice doesn't tear you up, her story will.
i hope you have a lovely weekend, friend.
i'm looking forward to mine (gooooooo, dawgs!). and later this afternoon, my mom, sister and i are planning on checking out the county booksale, so i'm excited. i love books (that i never end up reading, but i love them) and i love county events like these. you never know what you'll find there or the people you'll run into.
what adventure are you looking forward to? whether its finally getting some time to veg out or to hike a mountain, i hope its a refreshing adventure for you, friend!
