[more] Good things come [to those who wait] and even out the stresses.

HI everyone,


I have completed partial order that i received recently from an advertising agency for a skin care company,



the order is enough to keep me quite busy planning the materials required, quantity, costing and shipment. I miss doing the artistic part of this craft and so happens i just remembered....YUP just remembered that my daughter gave me a LONG list of orders she received from her frens. With the PMR exam going on now, i dont want to disappointment them by not fulfilling their orders. SO i have been twisting some wires today and do admit that some of the requests can be a tad challenging! :)


Ok, now lets move on to my project.
At first i tot it was a joke because the enquiry came thru an email and by a lady name ms Goonting. Just because i was thinking of a haircut, maybe my husband is pulling a prank on me.  Come onnn.....is this a GOTCHA joke?
A thousand apologies kimberley :)   but being a joker myself, i tot  the joke is now on me hehehehe

I am happy to say that its NOT a joke and it was a serious enquiry and the deal went thru. I submitted few designs which i think wud look good, simple and elegant and yet doesnt require too much time to make. i planned the colors and crafted all within hours, right after we packed up from the bazaar which is usually around 11 pm.

I was given the task to design a piece of jewelry that can be assembled within 15 minutes. what?! 15 minutes?!  in 15 minutes, what kind of wirework jewelry can i come up with that is interesting, with the elements of wirework and at the same time looks great, christmassy feel and colors and bling?!
(later do i realised that the 15 minutes tag is actually a blessing :) )

To add more pizzazz to the challenge, i was also busy promoting my craft at the KDE ramadan bazaar and at the same time already working every hour and every minute fulfilling orders to be delivered before raya! i was already sleeping only about 4 hours every night and no doubt its a good thing but it did UPPED my stress level.


weeks  went by and til few days just before raya i was informed that, the skin care company rep accepted my proposal, ALHAMDULILLAH! but WAIT, it doesnt end there. I am required to submit every details of the jewelry to be submitted the first day after the raya holidays. Its almost raya eve and i was still making customization orders and my mind was racing.
There goes my plan of a great break, feet up enjoying the bliss of our planned raya vacation at pullman lakeside resort. Still recuperating from a violent case of food poisoning ,I was so stressed out but my GREAT Family supplied me with words of encouragement and support that i decided, forget about it. Its Raya.  I CAN do it the minute we arrived back from our break. After all i work best under pressure. Well i did just that and managed to submit everything plus new design and color proposal by around 3.30 am. That is the end of the story and here i am promoting the event that i hope will materialized.

Apart from supplying the jewelry, I will also hold a mini demo and workshop for
customers.

The dates have not been finalised yet but i was informed by Leo Burnett rep that the promotion will run tentatively from 16th -18th October as the Weekend Specials @ Jusco Mid Valley Counter. The demo is on the 17th of october from 10am to 9pm.

So if you are a customer of SK-II, please come and try out  wirework craft with me :))

Another location yet to be confirmed is at
Jusco Tebrau City on  19th  Dec.






till then, take care and smile always..... :)
