Worktable Wednesday

Sadly, today was much more office-based than studio-based. Phone calls and Emails and bills...snooozzze!

I cut materials for two photo albums I’ll be working on tomorrow – I’m feeling sick and didn’t think I’d have any muscle to put into gluing.

Everything is ready to go first thing tomorrow morning:

When my energy ran out, I worked on inventory. I love math, but really hate hate hate counting things.

I have an Excel spreadsheet that I use every year for my inventory. I start out by updating the costs for any recent purchases. I also have a rocking checklist (who, me?) to help keep me focused.

As cranky as I was about counting, I was happy to rummage through my two shoe boxes full of chopsticks. Yes, I said two. And now I’m craving noodles.

Here’s hoping that I’ll feel better tomorrow!

Hilke –

I am feeling better – thanks! My understanding is that awards heal better than chicken soup…
