I wasn’t really planning on doing many work updates on here at the moment as you if you follow me on Twitter or Instagram you’re probably bored of me bleating on about photography and listing all the time but I figure I should do an update anyway, as I haven’t had much time for blogging at the moment trying to keep up with work.
My new shop is a little delayed because I don’t want to start any new projects because I didn’t want to start any new projects whilst trying to finish old ones for the main shop and end up overwhelmed with work again. I’ve pretty much loaded up all old handmade stock except for a few bits that need finishing or photographing but the number is quite small so that can wait whilst I work on uploading all the vintage stock piling up and also it appears that it is doing rather well and I should probably concede and just concentrate on setting that up first before dedicating time to anything else.I hope I haven’t jinxed myself by saying that but it finally seems I’ve made a good business decision for once.
When that’s pretty much down to a minimum, I’ll be able to dedicate some time to work on new designs properly, rather than half starting things and then not get round to finishing them. So it real terms I’m probably not likely to start on the new shop until probably June or July, which is okay because it’s for a good cause. I’ve also pretty much given up all my challenges so I can concentrate on work, yes I’m back to workaholic mode, I’m even writing this whilst poorly because there is no rest for the wicked or sick when you’re self-employed! But on the plus side I am enjoying my work even if it does leave me a little worn out at times.
So that’s it really on the work front, concentrating on building up Natasha de Vil Vintage, I love vintage as you know, I have learnt that everything sells eventually because there is something for everyone out there, you just need to be patient and it’s paying off. I’ve sold in the past but only personal stuff but I’m really enjoying hunting out stuff for shop and sending things off to new homes around the world. Who knew that my talent involved shopping!
Anyway So thanks for bearing with me and I’m planning on getting back to a regular blogging schedule in May!
