deep breath

Oh My I haven't posted in over a week. You see I got so excited, with so many ideas and plans and possibilities swirling in my brain, and doing so much all at once, that after four days I found myself on the floor of the Boys apartment unable to do anything but watch Oprah and re-runs for 3 days.
It's just that I get so excited I almost hurt myself. There are so many things to make, to do, to cut and sew and stuff and paint. And there's not as many hours in the day as there used to be (my theory is the days seemed longer when I worked 9 to 5 in a job I didn't always enjoy. Sometimes time draaagged on. Now I'm creating, the day disappears awfully quickly and I wonder where the hell it went. )
The markets went so well, and I have wholesale orders and appointments and custom orders and shopping and meetings and so.much.indeed that I am feeling a little overwhelmed and need to take a deep breath, and have faith that this will work out and I may actually be able to make a living.
Here's hoping, and here's to slowing down. I need to learn to pace myself and do one thing at a time. I'm trying to scheduled in rest times. Library times, cafe times, just.doing.nothing. times. Also photo times and blogging times. I am making an effort to consciously note when I start work and choose to stop. Here's hoping.

WoW! Busy! It sounds like exciting times.

I feel like you've written this post for me also! I totally agree about the 9-5 workday vs the creative workday - where does time go!?

Making stuff. Sigh. So much fun.

Hi Shaz!

Sounds like all is going well in the be-your-own-boss department.

Which markets are you doing? I'm keen to check out some cool Sydney crafty markets.

Best of luck with that, my hubby works from home and fails miserably at scheduling himself! Its really hard - but with the power of your list making skills... you may pull through! *s*

It's hard figuring out work/life boundaries when you're doing something fun. Hope you find something that works for you.
