The worse year of my life continues to be so.
This was how I felt yesterday when the roof of our new studio was leaking not in one but in several places. It wasn't just because of the bad skylights installation either. The guys had a look and it all needs a major repair job. Nothing can be looked at until Monday now.
This bucket was originally catching one of the leaks but as you can see - the water has spread all over the table, which we are now getting rid of.
Needless to say, the yardage-printing tables could not be set up as the rain would have fallen on and damaged the wooden tops, felt underlays and canvas covers.
With wholesale orders coming in and a screen-printing class to teach next weekend, my stress levels are through the roof and of course, I woke up with a major headache today. At least one roll of linen fabric is water damaged and I'm not sure what else.
I ask, when does running a small business get easier? How do you keep yourself motivated when it seems like all the gods have it in for you?
I do try to remind myself that so many people are worse off than me and can only imagine how disheartening it must feel to have been a flood/cyclone victim but admittedly, I'm finding it difficult right now.
The positive things that keep me going are the lovely emails from happy customers and your words of encouragement. I am trying to enjoy the weekend with my little girl who flew home this weekend to help and to visit.
I sure would love to know how you pull yourself up when you're down?
