… you probably get more work than you really want for a Friday night when all you’ve planned is a pizza (home made, gorgeous :D), a good book and a cup of tea (and one big order still waiting to be finished but already scheduled for tomorrow).
This afternoon, around 4pm, when I was walking back home from my part-time job I got a phone call from Michal asking me whether I could help his friend who needs a birthday gift for his girlfriend. He said that the friend wanted to buy a neckpiece but he couldn’t find any that he would like and could afford. And the birthday is tomorrow! So, the idea was – he would buy one of my pieces. That’s just fantastic, I thought, nice ending of the week.
The guys turned up 5min later and we went through the few pieces I stock at home. He found them too expensive though… Now – because I already mentioned I’m soft hearted and couldn’t think of leaving that guy (whom I just met) with no gift for his girlfriend (whom I don’t even know) I offered to make something. I still had a few hours and he wanted something simple, so I didn’t see any problems at that time. He chose a purple silver-lined glass bead for the pendant and saying that he’d be back at 11pm was gone.
I had my gorgeous pizza (Margherita by the way, with the best Pesto Genovese ever!), took a shower and completely relaxed sat at my work table. Then, after 10min I realised it’s already 8pm and I have 3 hours left to make an EASY pendant!!! EASY and I?! Not good at all, I can’t make simple and I do like to have at least one night for the finishing touches. I was wrapping getting more and more stressed and angry, all the time concentrated at that purple glass bead and was thinking: if I only had that one night, it’d be much better if it was to do by tomorrow, not by tonight! Purple… Tomorrow… Purple. Tomorrow. Purple!
I finished the piece just after 10pm, set up the table for a photo shots and managed to take 10 when the guy turned up. He was 45min earlier, grrrr. Well, I took 2 more photos, packed the neckpiece nicely in a box and made one guy happy. Hopefully the girl will like it as much as I do.
