Creative routines with One Five Six

Hi, my name is Kaleigh Shrigley.

Together with my best friend and work wife Claire Lowe we run a jewelry brand and lifestyle shop in Columbus, OH.

Claire and I both work full-time hand making the jewelry in our studio located in the back half of our retail space.

Being a business owner means that no two days are exactly the same, but here is a pretty good idea of what a “normal” day for me looks like.

8 am

Wake up!

I always have aspirations of being one of those 5am rise and grind gals but unfortunately, my body refuses to function before 8am!

8:30 am - 9:30 am

I usually take an hour long workout class.

Every day is a different form or exercise, which is great for me because I tend to get bored with one type of workout.

10 am

I usually make a bowl of oatmeal with peanut butter and honey for breakfast. Then I shower and get ready for the day.

11 am

I get to the shop with two large unsweetened iced teas in hand for Claire and I. We usually start the day by checking emails and social media and make a sort of “plan” for what needs to be done that day.

12 pm

We are in the studio/shop working on online and wholesale orders stopping our work throughout the day to help any customers that stop in the shop.

2 pm

Lunch time!

Claire and I always have aspirations of packing lunch, but lunch time for us usually means getting takeout from one of the restaurants nearby.

Over lunch, we chat about long-term goals and ideas for future collections.

3 pm

Back to filling orders.

Claire often breaks away from filling orders to get some computer work done.

She keeps all our shop vendor contracts organized as well as all of our wholesale accounts.

6pm

Shop closing time.

On a good day, we head home at 6, but there are plenty of nights we stay a few hours after closing.

7pm

I have dinner with my boyfriend and we often go see a movie at the local movie theater where we have monthly passes.

Claire and her husband often join for the movie as well.

10 pm

home time / get ready for bed!
