Nope, I didnâ€™t work on the pendant descriptions I had every intention to write.Â Saturday morning became frustrating as I fruitlessly searched online for findings that I know exist but apparently can only be found in 24-packs at Michaelâ€™s for now, instead of through a wholesaler.
Thatâ€™s the trickery of the Internet. You think that you can find things in bulk online â€˜somewhere,â€™ but alas, a retailer just might have exclusivity over that particular product.Â So I abandoned the search and shut down the computer, to take a very frosty walk at which I certainly â€˜cooled offâ€™.
These crocuses are deceptive:
For the rest of the day I lost myself in a book.
It is surprisingly refreshing to transport yourself into another world, and immerse yourself into the lives of a group of people as they grow over 20+ years.
I forgot about what pendants to describe next for the Etsy upload, how many and what kind I want to make next week, the product photos I have yet to take, how to best determine the right field names for Bento to set up the database right the first time. Instead, I empathized with fictional characters who became so real in my head that it was hard to let them go after the last page.
Yesterday I realized Kari Chapinâ€™s book is due soon so my morning was spent at a cafe getting close to finishing it. I really like this book a lot, and will do a roundup of business planning reads in the future.
After a frosty walk home, I certainly hope that this Robin truly is the harbinger of Spring. Weâ€™re more than ready for it up in the Midwest.
