I've been super busy getting ready for the exhibition and the re-opening of my Etsy shop. I've got a great big to do list that involves all sorts of logistics, research, planning and doing. It's a big list, but one that I'm more than happy to be working through. I think it's my favourite to do list ever.
Late last night, when I was tired and wanted to stop, I thought "gee I'll be so happy when I get all this work finished. Just a few more weeks and it will all be done".
And then it occurred to me! This isn't a project that will be finished shortly. This is a beginning. The beginning. This is the start of my creative business. This is a race ... to the starting line.
So today I grabbed my to do list and I added some things for late July and early August. A few things that will give me focus and keep the momentum beyond the starting point. Don't worry, I gave myself some time to celebrate and unwind after the initial sprint. I just wanted to help myself move into the marathon part of my journey with a sense of purpose and some direction.
Oh, and just to clarify, because I've seen a few people mention the wrong date around blogland. The opening night for my exhibition is July 22nd. I don't want you to get all rugged up and come out tomorrow night. There won't be anything to see except a closed cafe.
