It’s been a full house in the studio. Full enough that some mornings, upon entering, I can be rendered momentarily paralyzed. But only for a moment! I look at my list of things to do, process in my head how most efficiently to proceed, and then I dive right in. There is a nice momentum that is gained when there is a lot of work to be done. Sometimes it becomes like a meditation and hours can go by uninterrupted. When I click into my groove it is really satisfying to work through a stack of bags.
Every now and then I come here to say thank you to my customers, and this is one of those times. I have been feeling so incredibly grateful for the support and understanding I have received from my customers. My turnaround time has been longer than ever in infusion history, and longer than was predicted even 2 weeks ago, and that’s hard for me sometimes – but I am just one person wearing all the hats, and this little business is growing. The amazing patience and support I have had from my customers has been hugely appreciated, and it makes this all so much easier and allows me to keep loving what I do. Sometimes I worry that my customers think I am dinking around (like, how could it POSSIBLY take 3 WEEKS (or 4!) to make my bag???), but what comes back to me is simply understanding and appreciation for what they know is handmade, and made by a real, live person.
It’s radical, and I love it, and I thank you!
Believe me (and I think you do), I am working super hard to get your orders out as efficiently as I can. I need to sleep a little and eat once in a while and get outside sometimes, but my primary focus is my work these days. I work a lot. More and harder than I have ever worked in my life. I love my work. Thank you for allowing me to work for myself, and to keep loving what I do.
