That is the question.
OK, I didn’t mean to take a week off from blogging. It’s just……I just could not come up with anything interesting to say.
The advice you always hear about blogging is that you must be consistent.
Blog regularly and often.
Which all sounds good except…..when you have nothing to say.
I spent my week working on some new, custom HOME signs including Saint Louis!And, I’d been invited to do a kind of exclusive show so it was time for my usual mad prep. And I just felt silly announcing to the world “I made more coasters!”
So, in that circumstance is it better to keep quiet or should you come up with something/anything to talk about? What do you think?
But I’m back and had a fun weekend.
The show was at an exclusive club called SoHo House. There are SoHo houses in NYC and London etc etc and they are quite, quite posh.
But they are so versatile and fun to work on!
I also got some new magnets in there.My magnets are, basically, tiny versions of my coasters. I started making them because people kept either A) thinking the coasters were magnets or B) saying “these are great but I don’t need/use coasters.”
When my niece saw these she blurted out, “did you make these? They look so…real.”
I assured her that they were, in fact, “real” and that I wasn’t sure whether I should be complimented or offended.
She explained that what she meant was that the packaging looked like something you’d find in a “real” store and she was having trouble believing it came from me.
I explained that I still wasn’t sure whether to be complimented or offended.
The show was great though.
The club is in the Penthouse of a high rise in West Hollywood and they set us up in the roof garden with sweeping 360 degree views of the city. It is just staggeringly beautiful and I confess I felt a little ghetto with my pegboard displays and not-ironed tablecloths. But, happily, the beautiful people in their beautiful room didn’t seem to mind and it was a terrific afternoon.
I’d show pics but they have strict rules. No cameras. You can’t even use your cell phone to make a call! There was an “official” photographer though so we’ll see what he came up with.
I have projects in mind for this week however so stay tuned for consistent blogging!
