Saturday has always been a work day for me. Since way back in my youth when i started with Babysitting Jobs / working in a jewelry store / through to the Wine Shop / and the Children's Home and now my own business. I really don't mind it at all. It frees up so much of my week to go do stuff when everybody else is in their workplaces.
I had the bonus of professional help today too!
(Not the dog - little monkey that he is)
My sister, also known as: Baby New Potato.
Now, she works in the design / graphic / something like that area
(i have no idea what she does actually but i do get freebies from Superdrug)
But just having a fresh pair of eyes on this lot was great. I have been looking at and selling these buttons for so many years now, i fear my vision is cloudy.
So, it was makeshift light boxes and mucking about with wee props and lots of tea n cake all day, followed by a dog walk and then a night out. Its the way a Saturday should function.
Still so many edits to do and STILL so many photos to shoot and re-shoot but it was nice to have company for once. If i could employ minions to do this for me, i probably wouldn't...
I did stuff that was actually pretty and fun instead of, you know... businessssy.
Love making a big ole mess and feeling that satisfaction of 'DONE' :)
I had no real plan - just gonna make some tags and cards for a local gift shop....
I love sewing fabric to card. Its weirdly satisfying.
Small projects = very calming.
Just playing with teeny tiny pieces. back to where my handmade life began, selling cards in small local fairs and shops.
so, the tags got packaged up into sets for 'easy buy'
and some buttons also got bagged up for quickie buys also.
The cards are all 'blank' - for Ones own message and all that. I draw the line at putting sentiments on cards. How do i know what it is you want to say? Put your BigGirl pants on, open it up and write allll the stuff you want to say - then send it! Its old fashioned communication but so much more thoughtful.
Pop them all in a bag and release their Craftiness into the shop display later this week.
