it is 9 days before X-mas and I am getting ready for 2017

It has been quite a while since I found time and muse to write here on the blog. A lot has happened since then: My computer crashed a couple of times after updates/upgrades and convinced me that it is time to get  a new one. That will be part of the action plan 2017.

One reason why I went silent here: We shipped orders like crazy the last few weeks. From soaps to body oils to perfumes in all sizes and yes: That's nice! And now, 9 days before the holidays, I am getting ready myself, too: Getting some gifts for the kids, printing holiday greeting cards, and trying to calm down after busy days. Actually, the prototype of the card is being printed just now. I am using a watercolor drawing from last year.

Today's picture shows you some pencil drawings from the archeological museum where I had my regular drawing class yesterday. The guys to the right were fast sketches, where I sort of draw freely, just a few minutes, to capture something like a look or a pose. The picture to the left is a detailed study that took about 2 hours, trying to be precise and correct and all. Difficult!

The funny thing: I sometimes like the fast sketches that are not accurate and not detailed better.

For 2017 there is also a perfume action plan, of course, and the perfume(s) are detailed studies, so to say: Elaborated for weeks, months, years. Besides this defined action plan: I am tempted to add one fast perfume sketch...We will see.

What we will also see: 2017 will come with a travelling action plan. Because I learned: personal visits and appearances make all the difference. But I need some planning there. Thanks for staying tuned.

  • Dear Andy, let all conceived plans to fruition,:-) and let a new computer works better than all the previous :-)

    • Dear Vladimir, Thank you. And the computer: Well... that's another story :-) I am somewhat sentimental when it comes to computers and have a hard time replacing them as long as they still work ;-)

    • Happy holidays to you and your beloved ones, Maria. And yes : You bet... London will be part of the tauer tour 2017 :-)

  • Planning is key! Looking forward to seeing you hopefully in London and do try to find time to get some rest too! Merry Christmas ?

  • Happy Holidays to you & yours Andy!

  • I figured you were busy packing and shipping. :-) Glad to hear you are getting in some time for art and holiday fun too.

    Meeting you in person in LA was so special, I agree personal appearances make a big difference. Hope to see you again soon! And really looking forward to new Tauer and Tauerville scents for 2017 - there is a line in my budget for it!

    • totally, Tara, it was intense and nice at the same time. And thank you for keeping a tauer related budget line. This is super sweet. Ah... and yes: Meeting in LA was one of the treats in 2016! Here's to more in 2017!
