You see, all I want to do is by pretty beads and turn them into gorgeous jewellery for some lovely lady. Why is it then that I have all this other stuff that needs doing, I don’t remember signing up for that when I decided to become a jewellery designer, maybe it was in the small print.
.....at least 50% of your time will be spent doing really boring paperwork, filling, invoicing, paying bills, doing tax returns, taking pictures, editing pictures, uploading jewellery to the website, maintaining the website and any other boring thing that we can think of in the meantime........
Where is the admin fairy that comes along and takes it all away? Needless to say this rant is because I have just spent the last 4 hours doing my paperwork, pricing up the jewellery, my accounts etc, all that had to be done before I could updating the website with new lovelies....I'm now numb and wanted to make jewellery.... but had no time left.
So what good stuff came out of today?, well I did find a few piccys that I haven’t should you before, you’ll find them below, because I got all my admin done it now means ill have no distractions tomorrow and the postman was really kind and delivered me some stunning lampwork lentils from Helen Prole of Beady Bugs they are just too cute!
