It’s hard to stay motivated, and sometimes it’s even harder to not be so critical of your work. These are two things I’ve struggled with this past month.I’m happy to report that I’ve got myself out of my creative rut after being asked to do two custom jobs. I’m nervous about both,but, they’re turning out realllllllly well, and I hope that the ladies love them as much as I do.
There’s been so much going on it’s been hard to keep track! I’ve actually taken to using the calender and alarm features on my phone/ipod, and the physical planner I now carry in my purse daily. I am now the personal assistant to an awesome local business owner in addition to my full-time desk job, and scrambling to get these new designs for DMae perfected and in store. The line has switched shop platforms, craft show season is upon us, and I’ve decided that I need to not only get out there in the public eye,but, things needs to change behind the scenes. This is a good, and scary thing,but I’ve always been one to trust my intuition.
If there’s anything this past year and few months has taught me…it’s that anxiety and worry are not for me!!! In an effort to stay organized and sane through it all I’ve become a list maker, note taker, and fan of checking things off….who knew this could be a little fun?!?!?! I’ve found that I’m one of those “there aren’t enough hours in the day” gals..I’m up with the birds, rush to work, type type type, rush home, eat, shower, clean,*if i’m lucky insert date night here*, look through casting calls, part time job things,internet,read,help mom with *insert things here*, hulu til i fall asleep, aaaaaaaaannnnd repeat!!!! That’s pretty much it, don’t get me wrong there are laughs and smiles in there too!
I’m reading a few books that I found online to help me get a few things straight business wise, and am applying to a few craft shows in the area. Cross those fingers, say a few prayers,and send well wishes my way, because I am scared out of my mind….and excited all the same. I’m all for what’s to come!!!! This moth there will be more blog posts, and maybe a few features as well.
