Let There Be Light!
I managed it... I think that I have successfully ordered my lights. You may be reading this and thinking, 'what's the big deal?'. It is a mine field! Buying from trade websites is not the most straightforward thing I have ever done. There are product codes, pdf catalogues and price lists. VAT added and not added. I might of mentioned it once or twice before, but maths is not my thing. I get metres mixed up with feet and inches with centimetres. My friend Tara says that I should have taken the maths lessons that she used to teach my students. I think I'm an artist and all that calculating goes against the creative grain.
I've been to the gallery and checked on my dehumidifier, it had managed to extract 7 litres of water from the atmosphere in 2 days. I knew it was damp in there.
I have got the mock ups of my sign designs back and I have to say that I'm not convinced. I think they look lazy and not quite as classy I would like them to. I think I might have to try somewhere else.
I am half tempted to paint my own after all I am an artist and the logo is my own writing.
Cast the net a bit wider than Swanage, as it seems to be cheaper and better out of town. I have to say that I think that this is a shame as I would love to support any local businesses. Especially as I am about to become one. But it's also the fact that I am going to be running a business which is making me be more choosy.
I hope to meet up with some artists tomorrow and get their work this is the exciting bit.
