I have a little routine going on Saturdays, I call into the organic shop first to get fruit and veges. The reason I go so early is that they shut at 1.30 and I don't close until 2. Then its onto Galleria to get fresh bread at Bakers Delight and a cup of coffee to go at Aroma Cafe, nice coffee...... I open the shop and as its not usually busy on Saturday I settle down with my coffee, check and answer my emails. My blog is next and check up on my favourite blogs to see what everyone is doing, make comments because its nice to get comments. A couple of hours have gone by and now its my time to work on some art either for class samples or just for meWhen I am being creative I tend to make one helluva mess, pulling things out of this old suitcase (love my old suitcases) matching colours and textures, a bit of old lace here, braid there, scraps of velvet or linen and so it goes on, this can take me quite a while.
Only two more weeks in the shop and we will move everything out in that time, packing up paper packs, fabric packs and old metal packs to sell in the shop sale or have ready to sell at the markets after we shut shop, don't want to just lug it all home, will never find anything that way. I dont know what I will do on Saturdays when the shop shuts, guess I will form another routine, I am such a creature of habit, I am sure i will be quite lost to begin with, however we have Miss Johnson's Vintage and Handmade Market that we run coming up 25th and 26th June and I do want to make lots for that. We will be also selling a lot of our vintage peices from the shop and those I have stashed in the garage at home. Joanne will take most of the stock to her house, she has a converted attached garage that is her workroom so will fit a lot in there. I will carry all the workshop stuff plus the materials for making stock. It will be edging into the bedroom and sliding into bed from the bottom for a little while until that can be all sorted and taken to our market.
