Life begins :)
Well I'm back from Ireland, and had my 'BIG' birthday last week which went really well except for my sister forgetting it - I'll get my own back when she hits her next milestone ;) It actually feels quite liberating - and in true 'mid-life' crisis fashion I've decided to make a few work changes :)
I'm going to officially work 'part-time' on my glass. "Not a drastic change in productivity" I hear you all muttering :P It's more psychological - I can create when I feel inspired and not stress/feel guilty when I need to do other things :)
I'm no longer accepting online custom orders. This will free up my glass time to work on my own projects :) And in all honesty....does anyone really enjoy this work? Be honest!! I keep reading on shop announcements "I love custom work" but then I keep hearing about the nightmares and the stress. This does not affecting offline orders, which can still be ordered directly from my atelier in France.
Finally, I'm closing some of my social networking pages such as Myspace, Indiepublic and others that I can't even remember at the minute!. I joined all these before I started blogging and now they are lying gathering dust and full of old, out-of-date news and photographs. Time to spring clean!
