When you know, you know.
It has been a heck of a long time since I blogged - apologies for that. Please let me explain why. Firstly I was flat out busy, to the stage where I was meeting myself coming back busy. In September 2014 I moved my studio to street front premises in Cookstown. With a portion of the premises being somewhere for local crafters to showcase their wonderful crafts. This was a Bold move and one that proved extremely positive - except for one small (HUGE) thing. My time with my family became very limited.
Only having one day off a week to spend with family, try to have fun relaxed days out, catch up on the washing, housework and having little or no down time started to take it's toll on me. I was exhausted ALL the time and missed my family and friends. And so after much discussion we decided to take the bull by the horns and build a studio at home. Once we got over the shock of what we'd undertaken we knuckled down and Hey Presto!!! We have a log cabin studio, incorporating a workshop where I personalise Gifts. Something I discovered that I LOVE doing.
I am absolutely over the moon with what we have created in our back garden. I now have precious time with family and friends again and I will be able to get out and about again with my camera ... just for fun, something I haven't been able to do for quite some time.
Along with the move Cathy Dempster Photography is getting a rebrand!!! New Logo, new look website and business stationery. I will blog all about this when the rebranding is finished, with a big reveal.
I'll sign off for now and be back again soon with some more ramblings from the log cabin.
