Well, I know it’s been awhile since I posted here. And a good reason for that. End of March I took up a seasonal position at Yankee Candle and the month of April flew by. I had a blast working at Yankee Candle and meeting everyone in the department that I worked in. I never had a job that fit me so perfectly. The tasks and skills required were a perfect balance of both of my left and right brain skills. I was sadly laid off a couple of weeks ago unexpectedly, though I know that there’s more to this than meets the eye…
The transition from working full-time to going back to a freelancer schedule has been difficult, not to mention leaving so many awesome people behind.
I have been redirecting my focus on my projects both freelance and personal artwork. It’s been refreshing to live in a place where you can have the space to do your own work. This past Friday my client in Dubai hired me part-time to their start-up after working with them on freelance projects for the last couple of years. I am a firm believer in establishing and keeping relationships in life, whether it is business or social. You never know what will come along, not to mention that loyalty is huge in this day and age.
The job will allow me to stay in Northampton which I am ecstatic for. It may also allow me to do a travel opportunity that came through a couple of weeks ago.
I am writing a studio wrap-up post soon after this one of an overview of what I’ve been working on. I’m excited for what is to come!
