I decided I was going to rest this weekend, since I haven’t stopped working on my projects for quite a while now. My back is giving me some trouble and I was just going to sit at home, watch some telly and drink lots of tea.
HOWEVER, I really wanted to get a head start on the three rings I made and just picked up from the casting house on Friday, so I told myself I would only saw the sprues and file them down, and that’s it for the weekend.
I finished doing that, happy that I will have Sunday completely free and will be able to start polishing all the pieces Monday morning. I can’t wait to oxidize these babies to bring out all the little details I carved, which took a lot of effort (and a toll on my back).
HOWEVER, I woke up Sunday morning to discover the hen charm pendant sold on my Etsy shop! The whales charm pendant sold last week, and I suddenly realized I haven’t even started working on new ideas for more round charms that I wanted to do, and I was full of ideas and images ready to explode out of my head. So I decided to just start a list of images and maybe a sketch or two, but that would be it!
I guess the creative process is a very unpredictable thing, especially when you sell your creations online and hope to someday make a living out of it.
Anyway, I can’t complain. I’ve discovered that sitting on the carpet while working is the best position for my back right now.
With all the craziness going on in the world right now, at least in my living-room there’s peace.
