Renovation Update

This week has been taken up with the shop reno and classes for the council. I've felt a little displaced probably due to the lack of creating.

This is the front of the shop just after the wall was moved. Stuff was everywhere. Needed to start working out how/ where to display fabric, threads etc.

We moved the fabric and the threads to the other side of the shop. I took this before we placed the lights correctly, covered the table or moved the key rings but you get the idea.

I really don't find displaying stock inspiring. I know people who love it but not me. I just want to move onto the next thing I want to make. I started wasting time, that's how Retail Barbie got a new headband and brooch.

Ideally, the board displaying Alan's Wooden Buttons and my Singelton Buttons will go on the easel but at the moment we need it to fill a space on the wall. It's nice that we have options available. We have lots of ideas for new products but needed to make space for it first. Bit like the chicken and the egg.

Finally, yesterday afternoon I carved out a little time to make something with the paper beads. All is right with the world now.
