Well done, well said.

This is an original artwork, and is NOT to be used in any way (except re-linking back to me) without my expressed permissions.

Just a little doodle I ended up doing at work. The actual sketch measures 4x5" and I will be doing a few of them in my spare time and possible selling the originals on my deviantart ;)

Lately I've really been standing by the quote at the top: "Well done is much better than well said." I find this to be so true. Life is never perfect, and things come up (like a lot of financial issues for me this week); but I always try my hardest to be accountable for what I say, follow-through, and be someone who backs up their words with definite actions. I hold up my end of the bargain as best I can.

I feel that, in business and in life, this counts for so much in a person. I want others to note my actions, and see me as a person who gets things done. I don't want to be known as the girl who shells out empty promises left and right. I want people to have confidence in me and my business; rather than feeling like, "I'll believe it when I see it."

This weekend my goal is to update my Etsy Shop with 5 new items.
(I just listed this new Bohemian Elephant Charm Necklace tonight!)

How are you going to tackle giving yourself the "Well Done!" this weekend?

  1. So true. I think some of the best qualities for someone to have is to be reliable, accountable and true to their word.
    I love all the jewelry in your Etsy shop by the way, gorgeous!
    Oh and thanks for stopping by my blog today and leaving a lovely comment :)

  2. Sarah - I totally agree! And thank you :) I'm so glad I found your blog - I'm one of your newest followers ;) Thanks for a great post!

  3. That drawing is stunning! Your blog is looking beautiful as always.

    I just wanted to say thank you for following my baking blog, Pearl Whisk. I really appreciate the support you have shown.

    I wanted to quickly take the time to let you know that I have recently started a new blog. Using my knowledge as a biomedical scientist, I aim to expose the truth about beauty whilst presenting readers with tips and advice on how they can derive their own, natural beauty products. I hope I will see you there.

    All the best,

  4. That's such a pretty drawing!

    I don't think I ever mentioned how much I love the cookie-rings in your Etsy shop. I gotta remember to buy one soon.

  5. Voe - Thank you so much! :) I'm following your new blog! Great posts so far! I had no idea you could make an aspirin face wash!

    Mary - Hey girl! Thanks! Hahaha, I love making the cookie rings. I've debated a tutorial, but I'm not sure... lol. ;) I'd be honoured to have you wearing a piece of mine though!
