So this is the new year!!

So I have a few things in the pipeline already. So I’ve got a knife Sheath to fix. I’ve still got that saddlebag to fix and so I need to reply to my email.

So the big upheaval in my life at the moment is the fact that I’ve change rooms in the house. And yes I have been decluttering and yes it’s still not finished. But how do you find a lot of stuff though. It’s like oh that’s where that went and oh I love that book. But I still need to buy a lot of things and my next big passes a rug. Because the room is moving to has tile flooring.

But that will have to wait until next month already know which one I want to get. Course my boy,the dog of my life, loves the fact that I’m downstairs now. He’s so cute just laying at the end of my bed.

So I was planning to do some old Fashion advertising. And this is what I’ve got so far for the leaflets. Got nothing much else to say but a happy New Year, anyway even though it’s now February.

The work before Christmas.

Then I think of my work has picked up before Christmas. It’s mainly been fixing things. Such as handbags,gun cases and a pair of boots. These things are important to someone and I’m very grateful for the work.

I’m hoping in the New Year To pick up more work. I still have a leather luggage bag for motorbike to fix. The main goal is to save up money for a leather sew machine.

Now I know roughly what I’m looking for, thinking about getting a singer sewing machine cylindrical arm. I’ve seen one online that I like the look off and it’s roughly in my price range.

I have all these patterns and ideas and projects I’ve come up with but it’s finding the time and the material and the costs and who am I making it for.

The one thing I’m very bad at his time management. I don’t know what I’m gonna do with it all. It’s all this pressure now, I’m being dyslexic and asperges. Not that anybody reads this blog. None of it makes any sense. I’m using the dictaphone setting to write this. Just getting it down on the page. Making more content.

I really wanna make a quiver this year for archery. A Proper gunshots case (dreamt about making that pattern)And a ladies briefcase how funny I could win say £5000 that be great.

This is probably going to be the last blog post letter for this year. So for anyone who doesn’t read this. The ramblings of a dyslexic mind. But hey at least I’m trying to write it down or dictate it down.

So to all the horsey peopleAnd to all the leather crafty crafty people and to all the dyslexics aspersion people have a happy Christmas and a good New Year.

The wrong size

I don’t know what is going on in the Main Stream industry at the moment but the other day I have a client who wanted her pony’s bridle made smaller. So I when to see the bridle on the pony and it was huge. The owner told me that she ordered the pony size and on the bridle “P S” pony size.

I don’t know maybe I was a factory error but that was not a pony bridle. I’m having to change most of it and it’s still going to look weird.

More updates on this bridle/ finding the right size for this pony.

 

What to write about?

I have to be really inspired to write as being dyslexic is a real hindrance to the whole writing process. Nothing much has been going on this week. Last week I sold a pair of vintage car luggage straps, which were a different from the norm. As a month ago I ran a little craft stall at my Aunts WI. Trying to flog some of my old stock and a few toy. Well that’s where I meet this customer how has the vintage car. So it was worth going.

I just what to get out there more. And face the public to engages in a conversation about what I do.  I need to start making a go of this business. It’s not fun when you have all of theses anxieties about your abilities (o no you can’t do that your to stupid, you won’t be able to cope mentally, arr you can’t talk to normal people, you shouldn’t be let out of the house) nooooo this constant self doubt really pissed me off.

The thing is I’m not a very materialistic person. I don’t know if its a strength or a weakness but i am a very chilled out person and I only get agitated when I’m upset or very very angry or fall on panic mode. Which I swear is ten times worse because of the Asperger and I hate it.

and when you have a business you have to be a get up and go person but with me it to thing, one its the fact that i still live a home and i have to think about my family. So l have to work round them. And working from home also involved looking after this pack of very demanding dogs but that’s what you get when your mother is a dog breeder and in reasons years has become the security to the Swedish  Vallhund society and the big one are elkhound in case you were wondering.

Feeding time at the zoo

well i dropped the ball on this for a day. Look I’m not a great writer, half the time the stuff i write doesn’t even make sense to me let alone you. But now my iPad is guessing the words for me so that helps with the spelling. I have all these ideas and passion that’s there waiting for the world to discover. I just have to stop hiding , stop being afraid all the time.

well that’s me done for now.
