Hi all! I've been dragging my feet lately (a year or so?) and trying to focus but not. I design bags and make art - yep. The truth is that in order to do well, each needs my full attention and that's kind of impossible. Something always gets the short end.
Hubby (the organizer in the family) had been preaching an idea which, quite frankly I kept poo pooing. Fast forward to September and I've settled on a plan to make my work life work - thanks to the fact that I finally listened to said hubby.
This post is for my readers and customers who, whether you follow me for the bags or the art, will see a little change here at the blog and in my shop.
I adore making bags and miss it. So, my focus from early fall through December will be on designing bags and accessories. I will be giving previews and shop updates here, on Facebook and Instagram each week.
What about art and print? I will work on art and print as I can during off hours - namely nights and weekends. (Hey, a girl's gotta draw and carve. She just does.) I will also be documenting anything new here, on Facebook and Instagram. However, my focus on art will occur from January through summer-ish. Bags will then take a back seat until fall.
So, there ya go. I've been afraid to divide my work life down such a hard plan and don't know if it'll work - business-wise and customer-wise. But here tis and we will see how things come together.
So, let's talk bags...
I've got lots of drawings and yummy leather lined up. Plans for new bags, totes, artist's pouches, camera straps AND other artist's accessories.
I'm just a little excited about this.
How about you? Do you have a plan?
