I love design and hate the "bottom line"...the invoicing of the massive amounts of sales receipts and return receipts and more receipts...!! Invoicing, managing the paperwork and keeping track of ALL the receipts..... I avoid it like the plague.
My "artist soul" just wants to make things yummy...like you never want to leave the place!!!!!! I am always careful with the clients' money...I do a lot of designing on a 'nickle'. Making careful purchases for my clients while loving the bargains and the recycled treasures...that is my favorite!!
Finding new uses for old things...top of my list!
Long story short...my "invoicer" retired and now it is up to me to sit down and DO IT!!!! I miss her, but she is on to a well deserved permanent holiday.
My attention span is short and the paperwork drives me bonkers. I am on computer, but unfortunately it doesn't do everything.... I've got to provide some input...and when the credit card bills arrive it takes hours to match it up to the jobs!
This is a photo of what I call the "BIG" desk. I have 2 other desk and they ALL look like this..................................................
So alas, Kristin, my new assistant, has been thrown into the bill paying today and she is on the verge of a breakdown herself.. Remember she is an organization freak...so this gives her anxiety overload!!!
My office was the old country store on the Isle of Hope. On most days it is my refuge and a great place to empty the car between shopping trips.....
. I love this building and it comes complete with a kitty named "Lance" and a new great four poster canopy bed which will most likely end up in some lucky clients home.
