January - a return to slow living

Posted by on

As I am writing this, it's 8pm on the last Sunday of January. My tax return is due in 3 days, and is, of course, unfinished. 

I have a few leather goods waiting to be finished on the workshop table, and a few e-mails waiting for replies. 

All very important matters that I am unable to shift my focus to, because it's Sunday, it's been a long month, and February announces itself a little busy, so I am soaking up every moment of peace this evening has to offer. 

 January has been a month of background work, admin tasks, renovation projects that will hopefully path the way to a slow February, focused on creative ideas, photography and styling, new leather goods, sorting out and taking photos of a few antiques scattered in our attic and building a photography portfolio. 

Things will shift a little for this brand; leathercraft will start sharing the stage with my passion for photography, sustainable ware, books and antiques. 
The shop will feature a few new categories of items, all ready to ship, as I am pulling away from the 'made to order' loop. 

If you're reading this, thank you for still being here after my long break in 2023. 

Here are a few pictures from a cake I baked today, photographed on the dining table in the last blinks of afternoon light.
