I’m feeling pretty good this Thursday!

First of all, for lunch today I have fresh-from-our-CSA honeydew, and a slice of Boston Creme Pie.  Furthermore, Michael just showed up with some banana pudding.  So….looks like it’s going to be a healthy lunch.

Also, I’m getting my business cards today, and am awfully excited about seeing them.  Will update with a picture later, probably.

Plus, I’m at a very good (for me) level of busy-ness when it comes to leatherings.  I just finished that laptop bag for Stephen, which is just gorgeous, and am now turning my attention to a custom request via Etsy.  I really have fun figuring out patterns for these things, and then turning the pattern into a three-dimensional object.  I also feel like my techniques are improving A LOT and that I’m already a ton better than I was 6 months ago when I started on all this.  Er, 7 months ago.  It’s nearly August.

Stephen’s about to leave for like a long time, so I’m trying to come up with things to do in the evenings (that don’t involve spending money).

(SIDE NOTE: someone came over to my desk for about 2 minutes to ask me a question, and I can STILL smell him.  Stale smokey smell – like I imagine bartenders at the Villager smell.  I think I have some scented lotion somewhere around here…..)

Anyway, so in my free time next week, I’m going to work on churning out a bunch of items for my inventory; I sold the minimalist leather wallet that I listed in just a few weeks, and it was almost nothing in materials, so I need to make about  more of those.  Plus I will occasionally decide that I want to make journals, and sew/glue the insides together, but run out of steam before I actually make a cover and finish the project.  So I will probably throw together a few of those, as well.  I should put up some new Moleskine covers as well, and add some different pyrographic art to them.

So yeah.  Goal for next week is to make more money than I spend – or at least list items that will eventually sell for more than I spend.  Yep.  I would, in fact, like to go home right now and start working on some of them.

I'm a young, childless widow who is trying to figure out the best way to deal with the world in light of my late husband's suicide. It's harder than I ever imagined it would be, but somehow at the same time I am still alive and even happy sometimes.
