Dead days are days on my work calendar that are blank. They are hard to come by now that fall has begun and wardrobe updates are in full swing. Thus, I take advantage of these days to sneak in some new colors and styles.
These are exhilarating days for me because I have to squeeze in a lot of work into one day before I need to work on paid orders. I feel rebellious.
Like, I should be filling paid orders. But I'm not.
Then I feel guilty because I could have shipped a customer's order one day before I promised to ship it.
I pack a lot of work in these days. I cut, sew, assemble, photograph, edit and list everything new I want to add to the shop. Sometimes I just have time for 1 or 2 bags. Other times, I feel really ambitious and end up working through the night. Shay cooks dinner on those nights. Usually scrambled eggs, toast and tea.
His greatest culinary creations.
He's the best.
Sometimes I get epiphanies on how I can improve a product.
I'm already in the zone.
That's what I did on my dead day yesterday.
These metal feet sound like little tap shoes. :)
