Well the vacation is over. Lucas is back at work and my Mum has left (although her vacation continues in London for a while longer). It's time for me to get refocused. In theory that means regular blog posts (also on my Designs and Photo blogs), regular scrapping and crafting, as well as spending time pulling together some sort of business plan for my life.
It's been about a year since the first opportunities in the scrapbook industry came my way, and I am now almost 100% sure that this is how I want to spend my time and earn an income. But some groundwork has to be done, legal groundwork that is. The first step will be to get registered as a travailleur independent - the French equivalent of a freelancer - to make sure that everything is on the up and up, and so that I will be taken more seriously by potential clients in France such as the scrapbook stores.
I'm really excited by what the future holds, not the least of which will be being able to proudly declare myself a freelance designer when asked, as I inevitably will be, "So are you working yet?"
