And now the hard work begins...

Finally got all of my projects handed in, and now life seems to be getting more difficult!
As I have previously mentioned, I am aiming to become self employed and offer last minute and temporary cover for small businesses in York, and in the last two weeks I am finally working on taking the plunge! However, it's not as simple as I was expecting...
Forms forms forms, and a million hoops to jump through! I suppose it is a bit harder for me because of the health problems I have had and the financial help I have been receiving because of it, but there just seems to be so much to do! That along with sorting out my flat and new tenancy, I feel I already need to hire someone to help with my paperwork.
Today though, I finally feel like I am getting somewhere, and that 'The Shop Sitter' will soon be a common service around York. I am feeling positive, but I just want to get going now, however, my sensible head knows I need everything in place before I take the final step and declare myself as 'self employed'. So I have set up the email, the Facebook and enrolled myself on some free business courses, and it finally means I can tick some jobs off the list. 
I still have a way to go, (along side this I am also promoting my mum's glass jewellery, who said that finishing college means everything slows down?!), so at the moment I barely have time to think! But I hope that one day soon I will be putting up a post that is to inform you that I am finally in business!
Wish me luck...

On another note, I did say I would post about my tailoring and dressmaking course, which is going pretty well. Tackled zips last night though, took 4 attempts to get the first part of the zip on, but I suppose it's all a learning curve, and another skill to add to my knowledge :)

I see light at the end of the tunnel!

3 down and 1 to go!

The reason there has been no posts for a while is because of the amount of work I have been doing for the last 2 weeks, and I am pleased to say I only have one more project to hand in!

After handing in PPD4 I worked for a week finishing up WRL 4 and FMT2 which I handed in yesterday. I am really pleased with how my sketchbooks turned out, not so pleased that they took the best part of a day to print, but at least I got there in the end :)

Here is a photo of the bag charm I created for FMT2, I think the leaves might be a little bit big, but overall I am pleased, let me know what you think...

Anyway, I should really get on with my final sketchbook now, the deadline for VM is May 17th and after that it's time to become self employed and start earning the pennies for Holland, Edinburgh and London. Hopefully going to have an eventful summer, and finally get around some of the tourist attractions in York!

I am starting a tailoring and dressmaking course on Thursday evening, which I am quite excited about, so I will definitely write a post about that :D

Once I have finished all my college work I do intend to keep up with my blog, I enjoy writing it and will hopefully have more time to devote to it and my Deviant Art account, so watch this space!
