Behind The Scenes

•  I’ve been very busy working on multiple corporate projects.

When I work with large corporations, the work varies but it’s often all-consuming.

It’s gratifying in many ways.

It’s pretty awesome to see an entire office and/or building and/or business dressed in my art.

A lot has to happen behind the scenes though …

Pricing, bids, quotes, phone calls, emails, meetings, invoicing, quality control, etc., etc.

There’s a lot more work to a photography business than making a beautiful image.

In any case, I’ve been very busy with all of THAT lately.

•  In addition, I’m training Fred.

Some days Fred and I are really on top of things,

And other days we’re not.

I’m pretty sure that’s real life?

Fred is still taking up a lot more of my time than what many of you experience with an adult pet dog.

First of all, Fred is still a young (albeit very large!) puppy.

Second, Fred is in training for service work.

Fred is very adorable.

And, Fred needs a lot of my time.

•  My (Texas) son arrives home in a day or two.

He’ll be home for a little over a week.

He’s SO excited to see Fred again.

My son will also be celebrating his birthday while he’s here visiting.

I have a lot to do before and during his visit home.

•  I have four very “big events” (work & personal life) coming up in the next couple months.

All four events require clothes/outfits I don’t own.

In my “spare” time I randomly search websites and order clothes.

When those items finally deliver to my house, I try them on and, inevitably, end up returning them.

It would probably take less time if I just forced myself to get out in the real world and shop the old fashioned way?

But, I have no time.


I hate shopping.

    I would have to agree with previous comments on other posts….get yourself a Nordstrom personal shopper!!! Or a personal shopper from whatever store you choose. You live in an area where that is so easy to do. Seriously.

      I know I should do that.
      Right now, however, I don’t have a free day to even plan it.

    I agree with Denise. You can schedule an appointment, chat ahead of time and then hit the store and she will bring everything to you. Time saver!

    • Suzanne

      Yep …
      I need to do that.
      The question is WHEN ..

    I feel you. I just bought a swim suit in Hawaii because finding one on the mainland in the winter..ha! And like you I was returning everything I found online (look so cute on the Internet, but in person? Blah! So I waited and it worked out. Wish you luck!!
