Our lovely shop is shut during the week throughout August. Open on Saturdays & Sunday’s only. There are some exciting changes on the imminent horizon. I have an 8000 word essay/life story to share with you all on it at some point ... In a nutshell I am learning to listen to myself. To be authentic and honest about who I am and what I love. I love making. I love creating. I love being alone and not talking to a soul for 3 days straight. I love being social, I love being a hostess, I love sharing beautiful things with people and making connections. I love being a parent. I love being a partner. I don’t love answering the phone. I don’t love public speaking. I do love admin to a certain extent - more the organisation - I’ve got so many things on the go it’s impossible! I love Stag & Bow. But.... I don’t love that I’ve been stuck deep down in the guts of it, spinning plates and juggling juggling juggling for almost 9 years. I love that my babies were there with me, behind the counter, just a few days old. I love the people I meet and firm friends and customers that support us and love what we do. BUT! I have lost sight of what my passion is, I look longingly at the creative people that come in. I want to knit, I want to sew, I want to weave, I want to print! I want to create! So.... that’s what’s gonna happen: I’m going to make the beautiful things I’ve always wanted to make. And flog ‘em, if they’re flogworthy. From September Stag & Bow will be open on Wednesdays, Saturdays & Sunday’s only. That gives me more time to kick the admin in the arse. Spend some real time being focussed with my family. AND CREATE. IN MY STUDIO. To reignite my passion and then share it. To source beautiful honest quality materials. To bring you beautiful things made by beautiful hands. ~
So! With this in mind I am making myself and 2 of my best girls kick arse outfits for our other best girls wedding. Which is in 2 weeks. I’ve totally got this. Or am I feeling super positive and productive because I’ve been home alone for 48 hours. In silence?
PS - Admin people. I apologise. I’ll be with you this afternoon.
