Those of you who drop in on Wednesday know that my mid-week blog post is not always focused on crafting, but this week it is. The main reason is so that I can take part in Week 2 of Caroleecrafts Blogging Thursday event. My post will be published at the normal time (or around the normal time) on Wednesday and on Thursday morning, I will link to the Thursday Blogging event and visit the other blogs taking part.
Today included a long telephone conversation with the bride I am producing wedding stationery for. We have finalised the Order of Service and discussed potential layouts for the Table Plan. I have really enjoyed this particular commission and you can see a photograph of the Wedding Invitation here. This is a side of my business that I want to expand and my hairdresser (off to see her tomorrow) has kindly said she will help the promotion by handing out my wedding business card to her clients.
My plan for the rest of today is to start work on a range of Christmas cards I have been planning for a while. I can't get any further on the Orders of Service until this evening, so I can leave those for a while without feeling too guilty.
As you can see, there is no such thing as a normal or ordinary day when you are a self-employed crafter - but isn't that the best part? Doing something you really enjoy and doing it when you want to.
I hope you have enjoyed my post - I am looking forward to reading the other blog posts tomorrow of those crafters taking part in Caroline's UK Handmade Blogging Thursday.
