A new day begins.

Today has been a great day. A brand new day.

It was the first day of the rest of my life. Or however the saying goes. Recently I decided it was time I went part-time. I've cut my working days back to three, and now I have much more time to be playing and experimenting, and getting back to why I wanted to make jewellery in the first place. I'd found that doing it all day everyday, making what everyone else tells me to really drained me of any creative need. And it was time I did something about it.

So.... today was the first day! And it was lovely! Just a small sleep in (9am - but come on it was my first day....) and then I got to work. Cleared out the garage and got my work space back into some kind of working order, and then went to it! I've got lots of great ideas, and finally I feel like I have some time to explore them all.

I'm very excited about my future once again, and it's a very nice feeling.

  1. Congratulations and welcome to a new chapter! Nothing like a fresh start to re-inspire.
    I went part time for the first half of last year to do an arts course and I LOVED it.
    I dream of working part time... if only I could earn the same amount of money in 3 days as I can in 5.

    There are ways, I just have to think of them.


  2. I'm jealous! But also really, really happy for you.

    I look forward to seeing some of the products of your extra creative-time!

  3. Hey i posted my feb submission on my blog.
