Had some good news today. My eldest son has been for a few interviews over the last two weeks, and today went for one with Microsoft in London. This is for an apprenticeship which are not easy to get in this area, with the companies interviewing hundreds of young adults and only taking a small percentage of those that apply. But today Microsoft have taken him on and couldn't be happier, not for me but for him. He was so disappointed last week after travelling to Portsmouth for a 6 hour assessment and in depth interview with another large company and was really deflated, but today he's on top of the world! Won't bore you with all the details but its a wonderful opportunity for him.
Try explaining to somebody how to use the tubes; really hard work. I was going to go with him and show how but didn't in the end. I know its daft but i don't half worry!
Today i've been working on more pumpkin pots, and also some more candles with faces.
Forgot to take a photo of the candles so far. I've made the bases for the candles and tomorrow hoping to get on with sculpting their faces, then the following day hoping to get these and the pumpkin pots painted.
I need to start putting little bits by For Kensington when i do the show again next spring. From now on not everything i show will be available for sale through etsy.
It will only be a small amount from everything i show i put away in the kensington box and will continue my etsy sales almost as normal. Because i need to sell in between now and the show i have to start being good and putting part of everything by. Plus i'm a snail so have to start this early, lol.
Off to get on with the pumpkins again!
