Designing in the School Holidays

For so many us, we work our business around our families. 

So how do we manage in the school holidays?  If you’re like me…. you don’t get that much designing or creating done.  I’m one of these people who like to finish what I start (sooner rather than later), & kids on holidays are not conducive to this process.

What have I decided to do?  I’m not making anything much over these two weeks.  Instead, I’ve dragged out the kitchen timer, set it for 30 minutes, & am using this time to do research on all of the “stuff” related to computers & Internet.  Technically it is work-related, & the 30 minute block is good, because after the timer goes off, I am definitely ready for a break.  If I have a spurt of creative inspiration, I madly make notes.  Plus I’ve added to the ‘to do’ list (does this list ever end?!).

So, how do you manage, working around the family?  I’m curious….  Any tips?

Jewellery & Your Face Shape

In the never-ending process of learning, I decided to do some research into face shape & jewellery

As a result, I’ve added another page to the blog with the above title.  I’ll add more to it over time – I’m thinking body shape, dress styles – & of course the information on earrings that I’ve already posted.

No matter what your shape – be it body or face – I still stick to my idea, that if you love a piece of jewellery… go for it!!
