Finally opened up my Etsy shop, WillowWalker Designs for the holidays! I am in the process of renewing listings. I finally got my starfish painted white, but I have yet to actually work on taking new photos. I can already see where I need new pictures. I am really hoping I can get some new ones taken tonight for today's renewals.
I have been working really hard on getting things cleaned up in the glass shop. It has been very slow going, but it is looking very nice. I ended up having to wash the walls in the main showroom. I've got the old cabinet out. The glass jewelry display still needs to be cleaned off and emptied so I can put casters on it and then move it into the main showroom. I have the books and their racks all cleaned. Carpets steam cleaned, non-Spectrum glass is all cleaned and re-arranged. I also broke down quite a bit of it into smaller pieces as sometimes they sell better that way. I still have all the Spectrum and System 96 glass and bins to clean.
I am getting where I need to go albeit a lot slower than I expected. But after such a long period of falling behind I suppose it was unavoidable.

It's past time to open up my Etsy shop for the holiday season! I need to edit, update and freshen up my old listings. Now it is back to the battle of props and crops for good eye-candy pictures. I've got to get everything out, dusted and cleaned. Glue the leg back on my little tripod. Spray paint that starfish white.

Two months I accepted a different position at the grocery store where I work. The job puts me back onto graveyard shifts, but it is part-time and I actually get days off and is pretty much a set schedule. I changed the hours in the glass shop to reflect this. I am now closed closed Sunday thru Tuesday and open Wednesday thru Saturday. I am only open from noon until four Wednesday thru Friday and until two on Saturday. My days off are for both the shop and my job. This new job has given me a set schedule to build the rest of life around.
A month ago I got my house back. Since then it has become such a calm and peaceful place. I do not miss the chaos and stagnation I was drowning in. I finally am catching up on things and getting myself and my life back in order. I cannot believe how much better I am feeling. I am waking up each morning ready to face a new day. I have a new direction, hope and energy again. My creativity is starting to come back. I have actually been working hard on getting things cleaned up in the shop. I have made a good dent, but I have a lot left. It is so wonderful and amazing to feel positive about my life again.

This week I have a cabinet door to repair, a lamp, two small suncatchers and a custom order for a Bend logo in neutral colors. I am thinking of doing it in the traditional colors.
