Yesterday’s preparations paid off with a welcoming shop that was commented on by a number of visitors today. Here are the decorations with lights on making the place more welcoming.
So card sales, a set of markers with follow up art techniques chat offered when pens are given as lives locally. I also offer back up support online for recipients who are sent packs of the pens.
The nicest bit today was having my latest hat commission collected. Once we are into next week and the birthday boy has had his present I will share the design. Also today, I had arranged to meet with a prospective client who wants a Christmas card designed – my fourth for clients this year. We agreed design ideas, price and deposit and I have already made good progress on this during the day in between customers and serving them. A second commission was ordered today based around some wooden boxes I have worked on previously. So I have a busy art week ahead.
I also had communication with another client and making link between them and printer and confirmation that the cards I had sent on Monday had arrived too for an online order from Gloucestershire.
So a good return to the shop, next shift Saturday, I am looking forward to it already…<div class='sharedaddy sd-block sd-like jetpack-likes-widget-wrapper jetpack-likes-widget-unloaded' id='like-post-wrapper-123416164-4219-600e8e3234aa7' data-src='https://widgets.wp.com/likes/#blog_id=123416164&post_id=4219&origin=andyknillart.com&obj_id=123416164-4219-600e8e3234aa7' data-name='like-post-frame-123416164-4219-600e8e3234aa7'><h3 class="sd-title">Like this:</h3><div class='likes-widget-placeholder post-likes-widget-placeholder' style='height: 55px;'><span class='button'><span>Like</span></span> <span class="loading">Loading...</span></div><span class='sd-text-color'></span><a class='sd-link-color'></a></div>
