Survived Week One

I survived week one of being self employed. No money yet but making headway on the work schedule. I've averaged 6.5 hours a day, doing things creative. I also made myself breathe and I went to my English Country Dancing. Gotta get some exercise in there too. I would like to have one very long creative day during the week. I don't know which day it will be, but I know I'd like one. Just in case friends want to do something special. Only two days with tears and one day wondering what the heck did I do. Never fear, I've decided that I was going to do this for a period of time and right now, I'm okay.

I finally got samples done for a kid's workshop to be scheduled this summer. It's a purse with a pocket doll. I think they turned out quite well.

Good luck on your journey of self-employment Wendy - I so admire you for taking the plunge x

Me too, me too! I admire you too! :) English country dancing sounds like so much fun...when I first started summer school, I went to the gym once a week. But I've fallen out of the routine, sadly. I should get back into it - I found that I feel much more energetic and lively after a workout.

"One very long creative day" per week sounds great. If my schedule wasn't always so in flux all the time I'd love to do that too...just dedicate a whole day to creativity. Ahh.

Your purses are absolutely adorable, by the way. I think these might be one of my favorite projects of yours! I love the pink doll's dress. Such a pretty pattern!

Thank you Alison. I really appreciate that. Little Wendy Lu, thanks girl. English Country Dancing is fun and I love getting a workout. I'm glad you like the purses. I find it interesting that I never like anything until it's actually done and I can look at it. This was the first time I've used really funky prints and colors.
