These past two weeks of my life have been one big test for me. Through this whole process of being a stay at home mom, attempting to go beyond the goals I’ve set for myself as a business, holding a part-time job, and giving back to the Etsy community for everything that it’s given me – I overwhelmed myself. I took on a few more things that I could handle and it’s been a really lesson learned. As much as I love doing things for others and putting everyone above myself – sometimes you just have to break down and reset your priorities!
Because of my surgery and the medication I was on – it really limited what I could do and put me in a position where I felt like I was falling behind. Thank goodness I am back to the normal me this week and feeling back to being on top of this, but it was a good reminder that I am human and sometimes – even when we don’t want to – we need to slow down!
Now that I’m back on track I’ve been knocking out to do lists like it’s nothing! I’ve got seven new burp cloths to show and list, ten frames painted and primed and a few already started decorating, I am halfway done with a new scarf and I’ve been making cup cozies like it’s nobody’s business 😉
I know how much everyone LOVES pictures so I’ll definitely take more tomorrow and upload for all to see! But I am going to be concentrating on de-stashing tomorrow! My team on Etsy is doing a DESTASH BASH! We are getting rid of all the junk lying around from past projects and cleaning up or spaces so we can be ready for this coming holiday season. Who needs to be shuffling through a mess of things when purchases are at an all time high and we’ve got work to do! I’ll be excited to posting supply items so that I can make my store a little more dynamic and give you and my buyers some inspiration to be crafty yourselves!
So far I have some scrapbooking things and a lot of bias listed but there will be LOTS more coming 😉
