Arrived home safe and sound again.  Hopefully we’ll be here for a while.  🙂

In my studio this week…

  • I forgot to pack Prairie Sunset to finish the edges, so that’s up to be finished, including the hanging system.
  • I want to prepare more swatches to post.  If nothing else I am making space in my studio and arranging and organizing my textures and plaids better.
  • It would be nice to hook some on Okra.  We’ll see.
  • I want to work more on my business plan.

Once again I’ll have a short week.  Hubby is off Monday and Friday.  I get some things done when he’s off, but not as much as when he works.  I allow him to distract me when he’s home, and sometimes I’m the instigator myself!  We are struggling with scheduling joint activities and creative alone time.  He can retire any time now and we are thinking of the pros and cons, and how to manage a business for me and retirement for him.   His days off are our practice ground.

Anyone else struggle with this scenario?  Or any been there, done that experience?

I spent time on the trip going over my business mind map and updating it.  I have so much I want to do!   I will be prowling the neighbourhood this summer, looking for a good clump of poppies to photograph and hook.  I will be part of a Remembrance Day exhibit at one of the shops where I sell.  It will actually be up all of November.

I also took time to read a couple of CARFAC newsletters and make notes on articles.  I really need to acquire some back issues. Laureen Marchand has written some excellent articles on the business of being an artist.

Well that’s it for today folks. Hope everyone has a great Monday!  Take care all.  ?
