I, once again, would like to start the week with positive and enduring thoughts! Hug around, folks :)))
This last weekend, I had a friend coming over, who is quite the twitter phenomenon “celebrity” and has the ultimate publicity potential! Hah, not that, but I really wanted to give a gift to her, also because she had been following my posts and stating she wanted one, so I made it real!
The thing was, I couldn’t ask her what she wanted, like “Hey, any cool quotes in your mind for me to put on a t-shirt?” That would have ruined the surprise, so I browsed through her albums and tried to catch something that she might like. I saw this photo of a quote on a wall in London, in a recent trip she had been, so I went with this!
I liked how it turned out, did you?
I wanted to make her more than one, so that she could “publicize” easier (!) but I had limited time, as I had other orders of clients lined up!
The thing about creative/crafty work is you want to give gifts to your friends and family, but the leisure joy of it vanishes when you actually make a living out of it and try to meet the deadlines, *while* being innovative and creative.
I steal time from my work, blur the line between work & play, and prepare some form of art – may it be cupcake decorations, home solutions or jewelry design- just for the sake of it, so that I don’t get carried away in the dull routine of work.
Oh, the deadlines I have to meet?
The clients are happily wearing their equin-co’s as I type. 😉
More posts on that later,
