Having Trouble Metal Stamping Jewelry Tags… VLOG #3


wow
I just fell asleep on the sofa ohh, I’m wearing my contacts and everything
ohhh this is what happens when I have lots of night
shifts at H&M, I work there part-time,
and then suddenly I want to change my schedule around
for my own work on my business, and I wake up really early in the morning,
and I feel totally awake during the morning and active and everything,
it’s great, and in the afternoon I just crash, just crash!
especially after I have lunch, I get really full,
and the next thing I know I’ve fallen asleep on the sofa for like a good 1 or 2 hours,
it’s good though, I guess, it’s kind of refreshing, and then I get back
to work after that, usually a lot of the time if I am super motivated
then I can… make myself not fall asleep,
but if I do fall sleep in the afternoon, or if I tend to sleep in a bit in the morning,
that is usually a sign of, of course lack of sleep,
but also a sign that… I might be avoiding something that I planned
to do, but subconsciously I’m like, urgh I don’t
want to do this thing! and I’m procrastinating so,
I…want to go to sleep I know, it’s sort of weird
so what I’m procrastinating right now is I am trying to make a jewelry tag for my bracelet
line, and my jewelry tag is made out of metal stamping,
and I custom ordered this metal stamp, it looks gorgeous but…
and it was really expensive too, but however, because the metal stamp was so
big, you see compared to a regular letter stamp,
it is a lot bigger, and there is a lot more surface space,
I’m really struggling to impress it properly, I haven’t been able to impress it properly,
not even…not even once or twice, I’ve been struggling with it for…I think
ever since the beginning of this year, so like a good 4 month of just…struggling
to impress the stamp and, I really want to open my Etsy shop with the
stamp complete, but I don’t know, it doesn’t really look possible
and… this is my last week in Japan before I go
back to Taiwan, and it’s impossible for me to bring back all
my stamping equipments, so I’ve got my dead blow hammer is 2 pounds,
it’s really heavy, and also my anvil, which is a good 11 pounds
and… so if I’m going to make the jewelry tag before
I open my Etsy shop, I’m going to have to do it before I go back
to Taiwan, so within this week!
and…yeah, it’s just been really stressful…trying to
do that, what I thought I would do today, is…there
is this kind of DIY craft studio ish place… just right around the corner of my house,
I thought I might go there and somebody there might happen to be a master at metal stamping,
I don’t know, maybe I could get some help from them,
the marketing of that shop isn’t exactly great, like,
you have no idea what the hell the shop actually…does I think I can bring my own equipment over
and use their space, but I don’t know,
I need to go and find out, and I was gonna go do that today,
but it’s super rainy, ohh…you can’t really see but…
it’s really gloomy and rainy outside so I’ve been not wanting to go out,
yeah, been kind of avoiding that, I think the biggest thing to procrastination
is needing to do something that you don’t actually know how to do and,
it’s the process of figuring out how to do this thing,
that seems so overwhelming, I guess what you need to do is you need to
break down all the little steps that you need to do to figure out how to do this thing,
so that doing it wouldn’t really seem so hard, and you will stop procrastinating,
or even just talking about like your worries, talking about why it is that you think you
are putting this thing off to somebody, really helps, so…thanks for listening 🙂
I’ll try better tomorrow, it’s getting pretty late already so…
but yeah, definitely during this week sometime I am going to bring my stamps over to the
DIY shop and try to figure that out, ’cause…I really need to figure it out!
okay, so I’m gonna go and work on my bracelet, bye-bi-oh!
