Onwards and upwards!

This (kind of) follows on from my last blog about re-thinking my social media strategy. By default, I haven’t posted much over the last few weeks due to the fact that I’ve just been so busy making! Everything always happens at once doesn’t it, and following months of going through the process of moving house, we’re finally due to complete this Friday! As welll as this though, because I currently work entirely from home, I have to also move my workshop.

Now, I could have taken the easy option, and just continued being at home, but it just is happens that about 2 miles away from our new place, is Taurus Crafts...and...it also just so happened that they’d just finished, and had put up for rent, so shiny new workshop units...it had to be fate right?

I picked up the keys on Saturday, and we got straight in to paint the floor, and begin kitting it out. I have some gorgeous new jewellers benches, that will the base for running “Make Your Own Wedding Ring Workshops” and already have my first couple booked it at the end of June!

It’s going to be a big change work wise, including the fact that my commute, which will be by bike, will increase by about 4000% (an estimate, I haven’t actually done the maths)! I’ve had my confidence knocked a fair few times in my life, which I think I manage to mask pretty well, but right now, being in a position where I can afford to pay rent on my own proper “studio” feels fantastic!

Currently very empty looking, but this space will soon be the new AFJ HQ!
