National Fun at Work Day
It's too bad that I didn't know about this holiday when I worked in Corporate America! It would have been fun to plan activities for my team associated with this day. With that said, Fridays were usually the most fun day of the week anyway at my prior company. This was the day when consultants were in the office rather than at client sites, interview and cultivation days were hosted, everyone dressed more casually, and there was an all-office lunch and happy hour. Final Fridays often popped up with enhanced happy hours, either in the office or at a near-by restaurant.
Working from home and building Occasions by sonjabegonia, it's all up to me to make the work day fun. Fortunately, that is not an issue because I truly enjoy the creative process. I don't enjoy computer work as much (likely a hangover from years of sitting in front of a computer), so I just postponed those tasks for another day. As a treat, I watched an old '80s Molly Ringwald movie - For Keeps? - while working on some new designs.
At the end of the workday, I also received some great news. I have been approved to sell on Handmade at Amazon!!! I had not applied in 2015 because I wanted to see what types of stores ended up selling on the site and I also assumed that there would be some growing pains that Amazon would sort out in the first few month. I decided to apply for an invitation last week and was pleased to be accepted as a seller.
February is going to be a busy month setting up a new shop as well as expanding my presence on various social networks. I'm excited!
