Snow, snow and more snow

I just came in from shoveling another foot of snow. The good girlfriend I am I went outside and shoveled the driveway and cleaned off the car for John who was called in to do another nightshift.
I love being outside, breathing the fresh crisp air and taking in the stillness of the night.
It was 8:30 PM when I was out there and there were so many people jogging or taking their daily walk. Norwegians are all about being out in nature, hiking, skiing, jogging, walking.... I love it. 

Been having another busy day with custom orders. I seem to be getting a lot of them lately. It is especially fun when your customers are easy to work with and they know what they want. 

I've got a request of making a Apple Logo pendant from a male customer today. I like all the broad ideas and requests I get. Fun to be able to stretch yourself a bit as an artist.

Now I'm off to finish a couple of rings that are on order and then it seems I might just put my cozy pants on and watch some telly. I'm so out of the loop on what's going on with TV series and such. I don't watch that much TV. I usually tune in to watch the news and that's it. I do enjoy the occasional obnoxious reality show. We watch a ton of movies when we both are home, but to be honest I spend most of my time in my messy small studio where I am equipped with two large Apple iMac's ( one is John's ). I listing to a ton of podcasts while working. I also like having my Mac close by so I can catch up on convos and e-mails. I believe in returning e-mails and inquiries as soon as possible. Myself I think it is rather rude and terribly unwise to let your customers ( or potential customers ) wait for an unreasonable time to get back to them. Good customer service is the key in succeeding in business, whether one likes it or not.

Okay, nuff for now!

Laters!

Oh, I just NEED to say you're one of my favorite jewelers on etsy. Simple and bold, I suppose a bit like myself! I'm looking forward to more designs and will peek in on your blog and shop! Thank you for the beauty you create! Some day I will be back to get myself something real pretty!
