I was out with limes and strep for almost two months at the bringing of the year. This was quite a setback and i was unable to work on basically everything. I have quite a few blog entries missing due to this, however I am back on track and all caught up!
I’m currently focusing on getting display items for exhibition night, pricing all of my items and putting tags on them. On top of that I am also finishing photographing clothing and editing the pictures for the sight.
This week, I will be photographing, and editing all of my products. I will also be finishing a list of all my merchandise with prices. I have creed an account on a web sight called square space, which will be my web host. Over christmas break I will continue to edit pictures, and add them to my web page as well as look for more products. Over the last break I went to multiple flea markets and vintage stores in search of products and i was quite successful.
These past few weeks I have been struggling with Lymes, however I am recovering and will pick up my school work again. I have a complete inventory list, and have placed orders for restoration equipment. This week I will be spending most of my time working on college essays and doing make up work from all my absences.
This week I went to a few stores and got some new product. I will be working on some restoration with my mentor this weekend. I have also started a budget plan, and an inventory list.
