What time are you knocking off?

Guess some of you guys are already shutting up shop

Any working over?

Going any where nice?

What day will you return? (Subject to the Mayans of course!)

I'll keep the ebay stuff ticking over, plus anything that comes in that i think is quick enough to not waste too much time from family stuff, Despite being happy to work & needing to work, I have no real intentions to to much at all for the next week or so!

late today, fitting signs tomorrow, only Monday off and then working every day except holiday day and that's 2 of us, fully booked until 2nd week of Jan and then all my new equipment arrives so no rest in the near future either :cry:

Great to be busy though and would rather work holidays then have no work so I'm happy and really looking forward to the new year, it's going to be a good one.

and they're about to knock a hole through my wall any minute now :o

Hope everybody has a great Christmas.

All the best

Warren

Still working but much easier in Penang and langkawi until the 7th Jan ( only pricing and dealing with a frew customers who can't understand you are away and it is very difficult arranging deliveries when you are 8 hrs ahead.) keep telling them I have delivered 8 hrs ago but they don't believe me. No sense of timing or humour. Has Xmas already passed

I've had a crazy two weeks.
Thought I was all done, put my stuff away, got a shower etc.
Knock comes at the door, it is a guy for whom I hand-lettered two helmets.
(subcontracted)
I told him he needed a certain kind of clear coat so the paint did not crinkle.
He knew this, and chanced it, the paint crinkled.
So I had to re-letter one helmet.
I was cranky to say the least.
I do have to work 9-noon on Christmas Eve at my "real" job. Then two days off.
But for today it's
(hot) *hair* *drink* :dance2: :punk: :drink4: :funky: :blush:
:yes1: :yes1: :yes1:
Love....Jill

Attempted to finish on Friday to no avail. ..demanding customers wanting stuff fitted today in preparation for their upcoming sale...so got away at about 11 this morning...with the phone still going.

Will be in now & again to keep the printer ticking over and check on the shop - but should be good until the 3rd.

Busy busy, some fun stuff to get done for Christmas, dinosaur stickers for the 3 year old nephew, I never realised how many bloody dinosaurs there were, not to mention a few that I have worked with this year, Ice cream company flavoured logos and again, never realised how many there were. Oh and my favourite , designing logo and signage for a financial planning company that has been put on hold because they cannot afford to pay the deposit, no really !

So what flavours do these logos come in Graham lol, Is it just a case of licking the outside of the tub to see if you like the flavour inside :lol1: :lol1: :lol1:
