Morning :slight_smile: Hope everyone has a productive week :smile:

I’ve put my various shops in holiday mode for this week, I need the chance to get my current commissions list finished before I start taking the next lot of commissions.

It’s raining heavily here - oh what fun! They’re doing roadworks on one of the major roads into Bournemouth, so the road behind us (that has itself been closed twice this year for roadworks causing major chaos) is now taking a large proportion of the diverted traffic…and it’s lasting for 9 months! People are getting stuck in queues for 2 hours on certain sections of the route, and with the weather taking a turn for the worse it’s going to get even more time to get anywhere. I hate wishing time away, but I really can’t wait for the 9 months to be ended!

Here is my listing for today…

Morning all, hope the traffic situation eases for you Sara

Another lovely sea cave type ACEO Kelly, what do you see in this one? :smile:

105 redundancies to be handed out tomorrow here, not a good time in the office :frowning:

(Kelever) #5

Thank-you Margaret. My painting isn’t an ACEO,it’s a 4X6. In this one I see a gorillas face! lol.

Max, I am not sure what is happening with my sold items. It has confused me to be honest, as I had to delete them from my listings, because as you know with Encaustic painting, you can’t do two the same, and if someone wanted to buy the encaustic painting I would be totally stuck…so I had to delete them all together. Something isn’t right somewhere…

(Margaret Jackson) #6

Sorry, I was in a rush at work and didn’t take note of the dimensions! :smile:

(Kelever) #7

No need to be sorry :smile:

afternoon all…had a busy day but back now…no time for painting today, and no time for downloading pics to list, so I have done a relist. This one was getting to the end of its listing time so here it is again…a 7x5 watercolour that is in an ivory mount.

(Stephanie Guy) #9

Oh goodness Margaret I’ll be thinking of you tomorrow <3

Sounds awful Sara, does that mean you can’t drive anywhere?

No painting time for me either, although I’ve managed to plan out a commission.

(Maxine Veronica) #10

Good morning, I’ll be thinking of you today Margaret.

lovely work Kelly and Brenda,

Busy busy day today prepping for a big meeting on Thursday and evening are taken up with commissions but I’m looking forward to a loooong weekend I have Friday and Monday off and nothing planned except helping with decorating the bathroom, visit family and some down time :wink:

Thanks Bee, incidentally, are you aware that there’s another shop selling art work that’s just set up here calling themselves Studio Bee? Could get confusing! I’ve let them know about your shop that’s already established here, so hopefully they’ll change their name.

(Bee Skelton) #14

Oooh thanks Margaret @Louisa15 I thought I was seeing things! Even I was confused for a second or two LOL!

Thinking of you today. Not nice :frowning:

(Margaret Jackson) #15

Not nice at all, names are trickling out now as to who is affected. I won’t know if I’m safe till 16:30…

(Brenda Cumming) #16

Sending good luck wishes Margaret…I hope your job is safe…such a lot of redundancies is awful…peoples lives put in turmoil.
Bee, I hope you can get sorted with the other shop…I am surprised that folksy didn’t pick up on it…but perhaps they thought it was you opening a second shop.
Here is my listing for today.

(Phoenixprojects) #17

Just popping by briefly…Good luck, Margaret - fingers crossed.

(Kelever) #18

Hiya all.

Great work all :smile:

Here is my listing for today…

(Margaret Jackson) #19

I’m safe!!! :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:

Lots of other people aren’t though. Thanks for the well wishes everyone, it’s been a horrid day. So many people react in so many different ways, it’s a stressful time for everyone.

Fab work Brenda and Kelly.

(Brenda Cumming) #20

what a relief Margaret (unless of course you wanted to be redundant and stay home and paint and make beautifully embroidered pictures…lol)
Great work everyone.
