With autumn finally in full swing and the doors to the warehouse officially closed – I find myself at a loose end, no not really ! I still have rather a lot to do…
Firstly a big thank you to everyone who came and made our last month of trading in Sydney such a success – we are still selling quite a few things online and arranging deliveries. So get in touch if you would like to visit as we are working behind closed doors until the end of May and are available by appointment 🙂 we would love to see you this month as we will be less available in June.
The warehouse will be closed for quite some time before we open in Byron so we are in the process of updating a number of things on the website. As social media keeps changing, so are we… we will be adding a ‘Shop Instagram’ collection to the online store and making Instagram shoppable – as well as tidying up the various collections and categories.
This means that multiple items would be tagged and priced in the one image – which many folks seem to like – our shop feed @elementsilove_shop is the one to follow if you are part of the insta world.With our bricks & mortar store closed we are taking the opportunity for some self-imposed long service leave. I am not exactly sure what this will look like but I think it will be great 🙂 (wink) Of course there is lots of ‘work’ to do in Byron; but we are going to take it step by step – good things can’t be rushed…as I have hinted in stories on my instagram feed – our new location really does have a colourful and creative past and we are super excited to add our story to it.
Everyone in their own sweet way has a busy life and the pressure to be productive and creative can sometimes feel overwhelming. It is not often that we get…or take the opportunity to down tools and smell the roses. On a trip to Byron I happened to follow this little girl down from the lighthouse as she skipped along the path in her red dress, stockings and shoes – she looked like she didn’t have a care in the world! (n.b i never leave home with out my camera)
So that’s my goal for the next few months, as we embark on a new path. I still have a couple of interior projects in Sydney that will keep me in the loop, but the main aim will be to enjoy the process of creating a new space for Elements i love & all the challenges that come with it.
For the most part ..I will be settling, breathing, slowing, road tripping, reading and writing, catching up on my Travel Notes and generally have a good ole time! I would love to hear your thoughts on how you would spend your sabbatical when the time comes, or maybe you are having one too…
PS. and i will be taking photos along the way.
