one way or another

It’s been a while!  Been mega organised & met with a very enthusiastic bank manager type to open a business account, spoken to some helpful people at HMRC & handed over loads of money to Mr Gandhi for my first order, YES!

Jon MDC has done some excellent art work for logos & business cards – click on his ‘God Loves A Winner’ link on my blogroll.  His artwork is great & has merch to sell.

Fingers crossed I shall have my first shipment in time for Christmas – if so I’ll have to enlist the help of TheHandOnMyKnocker to get them all off to the Post Office!

drum roll …

a momentous day

My sample from Mr Gandhi has arrived from Delhi.  I have just finished jumping round the kitchen crying “ohmygodohmygodohmygod!”

Photos to follow.

I want freedom for the full expression of my personality.

A few words by Gandhi there!  His near namesake has completed my sample & it is being sent to me for inspection.

So, after a couple of false starts which included looking at free design-it-yourself websites I asked my friendly not-so-neighbourhood-anymore tattoo artist if she would like to design some art for my project.

We quickly decided that her equally talented partner would be a good shout & – WHOOOO! – he’s agreed to get involved.  Jon MDC, I thank you.

Promise carved in stone, deeper than the sea…

Ringfinger.  Devil’s flesh and bone do something for me.

WOW! Got up today to find EIGHT glorious photographs in my inbox from Mr Gandhi!

The first were images of the door attachments & how they will achieve the knocker action.
This was quickly followed by some details of  a skull ring that I want the hand to be wearing.

In my first diva moment I added this ring request only 3 days ago.  I had this in mind in order to make my product slightly different from any others that may appear.  Somehow I omitted this request in my initial excitement & ‘didn’t want to put them out’.  Sod that I thought –  this has to be something I 100% want & have no lingering doubts.  Better to annoy them a bit now rather than get a whole new sample later on!
