I spent much of the day yesterday working on my new design. It seems to be one of those projects that is just being stubborn regarding coming together. I can’t even tell you how many times I drew something, thinking I was on the right track and then I decided that I didn’t like it and started over again.
I almost got frustrated, but I do realize that everything can’t always come easy. If it were that easy to do, everyone would be doing it and I would be out of a job. So I picked at it for much of the afternoon and evening and little by little it is working out. I have one more element to work on and I think I may be near the finishing point. I haven’t even looked at it today yet, and maybe when I bring it up on my computer screen, the light bulb will go off and I will see my way to finish it. I certainly hope so.
In the morning I worked on getting out a short newsletter. Keith had three new designs ready for the site that were ready a couple of weeks ago when I finished up the tray projects, so we thought it would be a good time to send a newsletter which will alert our customers of these additional patterns. His designs are as follows:
I thought I would show the new designs here because Keith (like myself) tends to forget to post them in his project gallery.
We had some additional issues with the newsletter this time. It seems that several (a couple hundred) of them got bounced back from our customers with a yahoo.com email address. I put an announcement on our Facebook page, so that our customers who may have not received it can notify me and I will send it directly. I just don’t want them to miss out on something that they may want.
If any of you reading didn’t receive your copy, you can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send one out.
Hopefully this will be worked out soon.
I am going to leave things at that today. I hope to finish up the design that I am working on today and perhaps get some cutting done. I also want to get going on the next thing that I have to do, as the deadlines will come up quickly and I have a lot to accomplish.
I hope you all have a good day today and a wonderful weekend. I hear it is snowed yesterday in Iowa while we were experiencing warm and sunny temperatures here in Nova Scotia. It’s rather crazy.
Whatever the case may be, make the best of it and enjoy your weekend. Summer is right around the corner.
