In The Days of Our Lives we meet some fascinating and creative folk and take a look at what their typical day holds. Far from being about the mundane, it is a celebration of what it takes to juggle the day-to-day with big ideas, a successful business and a full home life. It’s about keeping all the balls in the air – what is important and what isn’t. It’s about (extra)ordinary moments that fill our every day.
This week we meet Jenna Spence, the green thumb that creates beautiful hanging plant balls under the label Mister Moss. Each piece is one-of-a-kind and is super easy to care for – even for those that are a little gardening challenged.
When she’s not lovingly making her hanging plants, Jenna’s working her magic as a graphic designer. Here’s a day in the life of this busy bee…
Wake up and take the mutt for a run. He seems to have a endless supply of energy.
Go to the local café, Pint of Milk, for breakfast and enjoy avocado and persian fetta on toast and a much needed flat white.
Start writing a list of orders to be made for the day (I write many lists throughout the day).
I am on the road in the ‘Red Rocket’ picking up plant supplies needed.
Unload the ‘Red Rocket’ and set up work station for the day. Start making Mister Moss!
Quick lunch: Usually Mountain Bread with salad (definitely not the highlight of the day).
Check emails on my phone while trying not to get it dirty with grubby hands.
Back to Mister Moss making.
Box orders and deliver to Post Office where the ladies at the counter greet me like a friend and call me ‘Spotty’ because I put spots on the boxes.
Time to get clean and back to the office. Reply to emails and then start working on my freelance graphic design clients. Nice to be indoors with the air-con.
Walk the dog….again! Start to think about dinner. Visit the supermarket.
Make dinner (hopefully something healthy). Enjoy this part as it is time to STOP.
Back on the computer to do some more graphics work, develop Mister Moss, photograph new products for the website and update website.
BED….Asleep as soon as head hits the pillow
