I guess it’s about time I write more than one line in one of my posts.
These days I am dealing with the pre-christmas crisis that hits me every year, believe it or not for things to work out I have to start in October.
Last year, I had just moved to a new city and had started my first year in school, so basically decided to just do a few custom orders and focus more on getting adjusted to my new life.
This year on the other hand, I started to feel much more confident about my work (the artistic side of it that is) and building my own language.
Takes a lot of time to make each of these pieces and I am happy that I am forced to develop more personal work. Long gone are the days I made something thinking it had to sell, it had to be silver, it had to be perfect , now they are perfect in my own terms and which I hope to have the chance to keep developing in the future.
But then this week it just hit me! There are bills to pay, christmas is coming, I have 5 physical shops to fill, my poor online shop is quite empty at the moment and I have a half way made website, I have to make jewelry for 2 expositions and my school work… all this after the 7h I am in class.
I have to go back to production!
Which leaves a gap of 4 to 5 hours of work every afternoon before I drop and weekends.
I am writing all this kind of to make it clear in my head, when life brings CHAOS and it seems impossible, I tend to freak out, sleeping? no way, tend to slow down as well, but then out of the blue, I turn the “turbo” on and work like there is no tomorrow, it is only for one month an a half.
I think it’s interesting how these little storms happen,and how somehow it feels like there is too much going on, that overwhelming feeling that you work 10 hours and at the end of the day feels you didn’t do very much, it has happened before and let me tell you the sleepless nights and the worry all are so worth it.
