It’s Monday!!! But living at the beach – really everyday is the same here. I can easily lose track of what day it is or what the date might be if I don’t have any wedding appointments coming up (which thankfully I do!!) or anything else that needs to be done on any particular day. There are days like today, that I feel a little lazy when I come in – and that makes for a slow start. Oh well…..there’s always tomorrow. (God I become more Costa Rican everyday!!!)
So my best lil’ furry friend Manchita and I decided that there would be no better way to start the day and get motivated than to put on some groovy house music and have our own dance party in the shop.
Nothing gets us girls going better than some funky house beats 🙂 Luckily, Manchita loves house music, plus she’s a badass dancer!! This girl’s got it all!
Thankfully I’ve got enough goodies in the shop now that it at least looks like I’m back in biz. For a few weeks, people were wandering through asking “Are you closing?” Nooooooo….I’m opening!! I’ve got lots of new things of my own, and I’m excited to have some of my daughter’s new things in here also. She’s recently really started delving into more metal work so her new things look awesome in the shop paired with mine. And of course I’m super happy that she’s working towards a career in something creative. I can vouch for the happiness in that!!!
My next little endeavor for the coming weeks is to make some small boho’ish leather wallets and bags. I’ve got lots of leather that is just a bit too thick for bracelets, but would peerrrfect for this project. We’ll see how it all turns out. Sometimes ideas look great in my mind, but when I sit down to pull it all together, it’s rubbish. Blah!
Haven’t devoted much time to updating the website. I need a little elf to do all my administrative tasks.
I think after years of computer work – I inwardly rebel and procrastinate against anything that might resemble real work. But my new inventory is growing everyday, which means the list of items to upload to Etsy grows as well. ***Sigh*** I know I need to start getting on it. Tomorrow …. (wink wink).
