Where Have I Been?

I am finally back!!! So much has been going on for the last couple of months making them just fly by.

First I went back to work full-time! It is quite an adjustment from working for yourself with flexible hours to having to be in the office on set hours. I had forgotten how many things could go wrong when you needed to rush out the door to make a staff meeting. Today I am having to take the day off because the children are not in school and I couldn't get child care. Looking forward to a day of being just a mom. I see brownies in my future.

I really love my job and happy with my decision to go back to work. I am working for a Design company. They do everything from web design, logos, signs, books, advertising, promotion, and pretty much anything you need to promote and support your business. It is exciting to see a new client walk through the door and watch everyone go to work to developing the perfect plan for that particular client. They have big name clients (many broadway shows) to the local landscaping business.

I am learning so much each day. Got to love a job like that!!!!

On another front - I have been getting a ton of orders for my silver wrapped rings and sweater monsters! All my free time has been going to fill orders. My husband is wondering if I will ever clean my house again.

And lastly - I have had to shut down my website and sad to see it go. But, I was not able to give it 110% and that is not acceptable to me

Thank you to all who have supported me through the years. I know I couldn't have done it without all the wonderful women I have met through both The Scrapbooking Society and I love 2 Create!

Now the big question is what is next for me????? Because all who know me, knows I can't stop here.

First, I am working towards a work/life balance and hope to find it very soon. LOL!!! Don't we all????

But, I have a new passion in my life!! And because there is probably something wrong with me I am working on a business plan to see if I can make it fly. I can't imagine my life without at least some time each week in my studio, housework will just have to wait. And this is gives me the perfect excuse to spend time in my studio.

Here is my new motto: Take your passions and spread your wings to fly. You may not soar but just dust off your wings and try again. Each attempt will bring you closer to passions and to your true self. You never know when you will feel the wind beneath your wings!
