08 May Friday, a recap
So this week went by in a whim, didn’t it? And now it’s Friday, close, so close, to the weekend. And remember – as some sort of compensation for being placed so far up north, Sweden’s got the CET, which means that I can start drinking wine much sooner than you guys who read this in sunny California can. It’s called universal justice, my friends. Universal justice for we the North.
Well, close as it might be, it’s still a few burning hours away, and I’ve got a few more things on my to do to check off before then. Today, I’ve been packing and shipping orders to Germany, the States, Switzerland, South Korea, Denmark, UK and Sweden – how freaking cool is that? I buy pens and paper, produce the prints, lettering pads, note pads, affirmation cards, cards and so on in my small studio here in my home, store it by playing Tetris because I have very limited space in here, receive your orders, pack it up and send it off to you guys around the world to use and enjoy. Pretty amazing, isn’t it, for one tall Swede that used to be burnt out and depressed? And it’s all thanks to you lovelies, so for that I’m eternally grateful, and therefore I will drink to you IN JUST TWO HOURS.
I have also walked the pup and ALMOST rescued him from rolling around in what might have been a very dead seagull on the beach, bless its soul, but also bless me as I had to wash my compadre when we got home when I really had a bunch of other stuff to do.
Besides that I have picked up oil for the patio, worked out (leg day, I hate and love it with great intensity), talked to my very nice DHL pick up-guy (yes, of course he has a name, but I can’t remember it for the life of me, sorry kind and service minded DHL guy), helped a kid make an omelet, drawn a cover for two new pads of black paper that I’ll launch soon, and recorded today’s IG post concerning the very big news that the delightful muted pastel colors of the Sign Brush Pen is back in stock!
You guys obviously loved them as much as I do, because they flew off of my shelves. I’m not even a pastel kind of person, but I adore these colors! Just look! It’s so refreshing seeing other colors besides the usual basic ones.
Now I just need to come up with, and draw, this week’s style in the Alphabet Series and make the practice sheet to go with it. Gah. That’s like the biggest task of the whole day, and I saved it for last…? Oh well, I better get to it then.
So, happy Friday my friend! Thank you for keeping me busy sometimes and for sharing parts of your life and letters with me. I appreciate it immensely. As a token of my gratitude, here’s a pic of Idris Elba to go with your Friday wine. Btw, did I mention that it’s wine time here SOON?
