I had all these grand plans this week of making prototypes for new bags and the daily routine of production got the better of me. I am trying to pace myself, I had a back log of zipper totes because I was waiting for my zippers (they were on vacation for two weeks) it kind of messed up my timeline, but I feel I am caught up now and to top it off the zippers I ordered for the small day bags and pouches were wrong. so next week the new batch will come and you will see those bags pop back in the shop. my body is showing signs of repetitive stress injury and I am thinking of ways to fix it by maybe going back to doing yoga and getting massages more often. I always say to j how I neglect myself and everything around me comes first and I have to think about sustaining this business and since I'm a key component I've got to take it easy.
on my plate is coming up with the next ceramic collection, I am going to take a break from the decal work and bring back painted wares, I made this tumbler 15 years ago and it's a daily reminder of how simple design can be timeless. I wanted the stripes to have an effect that it was painted with watercolour. I was also going through a blue and white phase. I think it's sweet how piper spends time at her sewing machine, she's only three and she works with such concentration and I also like how her and lliam see their world of creating as just a part of life.
I hope your weekend will be restful and filled with loafing. I miss those loafing days, enjoy them for me.
