I’m still trying to finish up the saddle bag I’ve been “working on” for like a month. I either need to suck it up and get over my resistance towards doing commissioned work, or just stop accepting commissions. I’ve gotten emails on Etsy this morning asking for custom items though, so I think I’m going to go the former route. One of these should be really easy to churn out – it’s a Moleskine cover with a tree burned into the front. Should be able to get it done tonight, as long as I actually work on it. Not sure what I’m doing tonight. So I guess I should make the Moleskine cover.
Last night I was going to work while I watched a movie, but I picked this German film and forgot that it’s impossible to work while watching foreign movies (subtitles, duh)…so the movie won out. It was a pretty good movie, too. But this is why Wes Anderson movies are perfect for watching while I work on projects – I’ve already seen them so many times that I can pretty much enjoy the whole movie while barely even watching it.
But really I need to finish the saddle bag, and then make Stephen’s laptop bag. I have about two weeks, which I can do, but only if I stop dilly-dallying around and watching German movies when I should be sewing or burnishing.
Did I mention that I’ve made two Etsy sales this week? So I ALSO need to restock my inventory. For heavens sake.
