driven, happy and ambitious in 2013!

i'm making the most of my jet lag.

the day after we arrived, i immediately worked on my store inventory, accounting etc. i still haven't done my business plan as the book said but the inventory alone took me a day to finish. the Math part was especially draining and to think i'm a BS Math graduate!

i woke up at past 7am and tended to my online store. the rest of the day I dedicated to converting the other room to a craft room. i didn't take the before picture but just imagine this room as a stock room.  After hours of cleaning, this was how it looked like:

another few hours after cleaning and sorting out my stash...

im happiest about the lighting (i used the one from the lightbox) and the big table which contains my cutting mat and my DIY lightbox among other stash.  there's no more squinting from now on!

after cleaning, i tried to block the two scarves on the bed). i don't know how they will come out because it's my first real try at blocking. who enjoys doing it? i don't. i hate it. or maybe i just need the right materials. the scarf was too long for the bed but i have no choice because i don't have a steam iron and no blocking board :(

i finished at past 9pm yet there's still a lot to do. the luggages are not included in the picture but they're a mess at the far bottom right of the picture. the two vintage bikes are also hidden from the pic. there's nowhere to park them so i really need to get rid of them soon! 

interesting in buying them? the one with the basket is good as new. it was Erik's gift to me for Xmas 2011. a month or so later, he brought home the other bike without a basket so he could bike with me daw. it never happened of course haha! 


i've been working the whole day! it's true what i read about having your own business; you won't work 8-5 but the whole day if needed because it's going to be hard work all throughout. i don't mind though.  i'm happy and fulfilled. i feel like i'm doing something worthwhile. i now have a clear goal on what i want to achieve. 

sleepy now. good night! :)
