rainy day

Windowsill, taken on a rainy day.

All urgent orders for Valentine's & Chinese New Year were sent out in the morning, and the rest of the work needs to be attended to only after my CNY break. So between now and when I brace the jams and leave for hometown, I have 2 free days where there's no 'to-do list'
Very rare occurrence.... And I'm not used to it.

Being so accustomed to working from day to night, where even all my interests are somehow related to work (photography, photoshop, small businesses articles etc), having an unplanned day of rest feels somewhat odd, rather lost.
There's always the fear of wasting time lingering in me...

I think I have a work addiction, I love it too much :)

on the table

Snapshots from the table.
Received a new batch of supplies recently, ordered them months ago so I couldn't remember what were in all those boxes. Puzzling how much of pink I ordered, must had a pink idea in mind? Either that or I submitted the wrong codes...
Anyway, there's always a use for them! Time to sort them out :)

Christmas orders: completed!

What a relief to have completed all christmas orders, having been very stressed out over it the past week (read: sleepless nights).
In a deja-vu way, this relieving feeling is a reminiscence of what i felt like eons ago after a major school examination.
I enjoy working hard, be it in school or business, so i guess having this similar feeling washed over me isn't very odd....
Anyway, I'm talking gibberish, an exhausted mind does that to you.
On for a good night's rest :)

I mentioned in the September post that I was working on a makeover for my local blog/ website.
Here's the packaging page, posting it here since this applies to my etsy store as well.

And here's a the photoshoot session for the gift boxes.

soft shades // work for today

Tackling on sweet, soft, pastel shades today :)
Remaking 3 pieces of Soft & a ring design requested by my dear friend.
She reserved that swan cabochon as soon as I unpacked my new supplies that came when we had a lunch meet-up at my home.

I didn't order too many of the pretty swans, planning to turn the rest into matinee length necklaces sometime soon!

Went on a shopping spree last weekend and did a restock of my already depleted lot of Swarovki crystals.
Here's one of the trays with 8mm bicones, I'm liking the colour combo here (arranged by the shop assistant), probably will make a piece with these!

I don't use Swarovskis very often in my pieces, but now that I have a larger stock on hand, you will see little crystal butterflies & more, very soon ;)

serptember '11 round up

Monthly post late, again....

clockwise from top left: 

September has been busy, especially ongoing works of revamping my local website has taken up a large chunk of time, couldn't bead as much as I would have liked!

Glad that the site is almost ready, just bits & pieces, here & there left to tweak. Finally this HTML jargon battle is almost won :)) cracking codes & interpreting funny symbols aren't my idea of fun, but there is this sense of satisfaction when all turns out well upon clicking 'preview'.
Ahh.... relieve all over! ;)

Anyway, busy times will continue this month too, I have a bracelet series planned (may not list on etsy) & lots more ideas to work on. At least once the site makeover is completed, I get to do things in my usual, relaxing way, blissful times to be appreciated :)
