Hi All!

I’ve had a busy week- what about you?

It’s been another week with a million little things. I’m feeling like a bit of a hamster on a wheel right now!

One of the first things on my list this week was getting some swimwear kits together for my upcoming Etsy shop, figuring out what all I was going to put in them, how much they weigh, shipping and the rest.

I’m loving all the prints I picked out! And I am so eager to get this Etsy shop up and running! I think I’ll be able to launch it sometime this week! So you an expect a post about that! ย ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

A quick question- what do you want in a swimwear kit? What types of prints are you most drawn to? I just can’t help myself with the bright prints!

The next thing I’ve been working on this week is the progress with the tables for my shop!! And I have new additions- firstly my big beautiful cutting table! (I will be properly fixing the mat down to the top as soon as the legs dry!)

It has joined a fleet with my two student tables and another cabinet table that will be a good cutting table for students!

 

This week has been all about painting the table legs! I picked this nice grey colour! And mom and Gibby helped me get everything painted! It’s so exciting how it’s all coming together! Thanks mom & dad! (and Gibby for the moral support!)

Aside from all this lovely business and studio prep I’ve managed to go out and have lots of fun too!!!

Last Sunday I celebrated my sisters birthday with her! And we got take-out thai and brought Gibby to the waterfront! (we all had a blast!) Happy Birthday Kristie!! <3 <3

I also went and explored Port Hope with a friend- all for studio and signage research of course! (and maybe just a little bit of cookie and latte time)

 

And we may have stopped to see Magic Mike XXL in the evening, purely for research purposes of course. In case I have to make an exceptionally revealing mens bathing suit for a client. I may have to go and see it again and get a second look though… just to be extra thorough in my research.

 

And the last cool thing I did this week was some raspberry picking with my mom ๐Ÿ™‚ The bushes are overflowing with them! It’s definitely the year of the raspberry!

That was my life this past week, summed up on a Saturday! ย I think I achieved a good balance of work and fun! Maybe a little emphasis on the fun! But it summer after all!

How was your week? Did you do anything fun?

Also let me know if you’re enjoying these posts. I know I’m a super nosy person and I love to know what people get up to in their day-to-day lives (I watch too many vloggers on youtube..) are you one of those people too?

Hope your weekend is awesome ๐Ÿ™‚
