Positive Reactions!

I am soooo pleased that I have started my 365 Days Project, it has really motivated me as I know that whatever else I am doing each day, I HAVE to fit in a drawing. I have been super-efficient getting all the rest of my orders and commissions done as quick as I can, so I can do this. It kind of feels like saving the best bit of food till last each day, so it’s like having a lovely chocolate cake but without the guilt!

The only thing that has suffered so far in this whirl of activity is my housework, today was the first time EVER that I haven’t had a clean school top for my daughter to wear. I did manage to cover up my rubbishness by putting her in an old PE top, which she thought was great as she will already be half ready for PE which is this afternoon! Genius!

It has also increased my confidence, as I am usually a bit cautious and worried whenever I send out a commission to someone, until they get back to me. I know this is silly as I have not had a bad comment so far but I can’t help it. But now I am putting new work out daily so just have to do it, so far I have had a great response to everything, so – so far so good. I have also had some brilliant people to draw already and was very pleased that Magazine Entrepreneur Mike Soutar, (who you might have seen on the Aprentice), has let me draw him and shared my pic.

I have also stepped inside a gorgeous shop and managed to speak, and now have another stockist Cloudberry Gifts, to sell my wares, so I am now getting their order ready.

I have also been reading a few blogs with advice about how to develop your own blog which I plan to write about next time to show what I have learnt so far. I would love to get any tips or comments you have for me. Good or bad criticism accepted…honest!

I hope it is going to be a great 365 Days this year for all of us!

Please do lso get in touch if you would like to be part of my 365 Days Project project, or if you would like to commission a piece of work for your home or business, I’d love to hear from you X
