Hey hello again !!! - here I am again !!!! - so !!!! I did claim last week that I was going to post at 7.01pm every Thursday !!!!! - I had it all planned for this week - I was going to give you lots of lovely colourful sparkly photos of my lovely colourful sparkly studio (The Big Spotty Dog Studio, Little Trolvis Quarry, Longdowns) and include some of the Quarry's really interesting history (amongst other things my studio was once was a dog pamper parlour !!!!!! - omg how the universe works !!!!! )
I had the best intentions in the world !!!! - this was me getting to grips with being a good social media person !!!!!! - giving you amusing interesting posts about me and where I make my bling !!!!! (I look up as I write this and see that my computer tells me it is 7.36pm !!!!! grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr !!!!!)
Is this just me ?? !!!!! or has anyone else out there had similar experiences with blogs when they start out ????? !!!! - please tell me it gets easier ??!!!!! grrrrrrrrr !!!!!!
Blogging lesson learnt number 35 !!! - draft out your blog in good time !!!! - not an hour before it is meant to go live !!!!!! grrrrrrrrrrr !!!!! also, although I do have loads of lovely colourful sparkly photos for you of my lovely colourful sparkly studio, there are over 50 !!!!!! - blogging lesson number 36 - be selective with your photos, but not at the moment when your blog is meant to be live !!!! grrrrrrrrr !!!!
The good news is that I am enrolled on a social media course with the lovely DPN people in Penzance for the next 4 weeks; I am going to be such a whizz and guru at social media by the end of it that;
A. hopefully I won't annoy you too much as I will learn how to blog with purpose and not lose people by my inept ramblings !!!!! and B. hmmmmm I'm not sure what B is but I am sure there is a whole alphabet out there that I should embrace - but maybe not now you will be relieved to hear !!!!!
So at the risk of totally sending you all to sleep - I am going to leave you guys now. Once more I think I have rambled / blogged about how rubbish I am at blogs !!! - hey ho at least I am consistent - my mission this next week (apart from actually making something in said studio and getting my head out of this computer !!!!!) is to manage to blog on time next week and show you all my studio, give you a glimpse as to where it is that I make my lovely beautiful up-cycled jewellery. Talk to you about how important my lovely colourful sparkly studio is to my creative process and how happy it makes my head !!!
BUT !! if you really can't wait that long !!!!! and would like to get more of an idea as to who I am, what I do and what fires me to create; then take a peek at my instagram. Currently I am really enjoying the #marchmeetthemaker challenge - I've managed most days (ooooops still need to do today - which is relax - don't think social media will be the thing I choose !!!!) but it's definitely fun and worth a peek - there are loads of us mainly independent makers doing said challenge and it really is inspiring to see how other people work and what turns them on in their world of creativity xx
So finally !!!! I will however leave you a little teasing glimpse of my studio - this is something I filmed last November (before the 'chicken's running free' ban came into force) and I managed to tempt a couple of the quarry's feathery residents to visit me. I had literally just moved into 'The Big Spotty Dog Studio' and was finally un-packed.
I hope you enjoy this little snippet and hopefully they won't be upside down this time !!!!!!! (see last weeks post of my gravity defying furry helpers !!!)
Ciao for now and see you at the slightly later time of 6pm next Friday (I learnt today that Fridays are better for blogging - oooooh get me, Mrs Social Media Guru !!!) xxxxxx
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO !!!!!!!!! they are on their side this time - that's it I'm going home to my poor man-flu hubby !!!!! grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr - teehee !!!!! xxxxxxxxxx
