By ‘eck, how did it get to be the end of the year? So, New Year, new plans!
The plan is – in no particular order
Move home (that’ll take some time, selling isn’t an issue for us, keeping buyers without their chain falling through, is) – but after a wasted 5 months in 2018, new agent, new home, new neighbours and a slightly different and new pace of life
New website – ok, a revamped website – technology is not my strong point. Clearly this has snoozed on the back shelf for far too long and now needs to earn it’s keep, at least the ££ this costs me to run (although my host manager is worth far more than that in reality; without Ben from Rosier Internet not a lot would get sorted!)
New work – watch out for this one! I’ve a new love, creating glass pictures. Those who know me know I can’t paint to save my life so these are, how can we put it? an interpretation of a scene. Early days and so far it has mainly been ‘wave’ shaped free-standing panels, but I will also be making larger bowls and smaller pictures – let’s see how it goes? The wave panels certainly were popular over the past 3 months! For that I am grateful, for both the income and the push I needed to look at things again.
New drive – no not the tarmac sort of thing, the more focussed kind. Does my drive need re-doing? No, I think we have enough kerb appeal under the car…… anyway, the plan is (stop laughing) at least once a month I will update this site with news and new work. Some of it might be for new outlets, at the moment I have Etsy and Amazon, and I take part in some online market events which will continue if they’ll have me back. I’m hoping to broaden my market places, but all of these cost a lot in fees of one sort or another, so am being cautious. Keep an eye on my ‘shop page and Facebook events page for new outlets.
And to start as I mean to carry on, here’s some examples of what is new this month….
