Finally Friday :o)

Friday finally at long last. I have no set plan for this day beyond work today. Maybe I will go out, maybe I will stay home. I knwo one thing, after work I am for sure going to walk the dogs! Maybe I will go home and create new things. I have plenty of ideas, now only if I had the time...
Time management sure seems challenging nowadays with such a fast paced and ever changing lifestyle. Growing up when family dinners were still a common thing where everyone sat down at the table and talked about their day, I find todays trends of that being less common very concerning. It seemed when I grew up there was always time, now I never seem to have enough time. I find myself often saying "If only I had time".
Time is such a great gift, time for yourself, time for others, time is so important and precious.
I hope to make the most of my time.
With that said, have a great weekend!

Marketing and Networking

While I am not computer illiterate, I am no computer and tech guru either. So I am still trying to figure this blog thing out, it looks like you can a few things with it, guess I will just have to play trial and error here with it, and go from there. It will be a learning experience I am sure. I am learning all kinds of new things about marketing and networking and promoting using a number of different things. I kind of feel like a sponge in a way, just absorbing...
Hope you bear with me and I don't bore you with my ramblings...
Off to get some real work done now.

Have you ever noticed how some days you seem and feel to be more productive than others. Some days I feel motivation is so lacking and others I have too much of it! How can this be... Somedays I detest those boring everyday things like laundry and checkbook balancing and wish I could play creator all day long, but alas I can't twitch my nose in order for it all to be done, so just try to make the best fo the daily grind. Like right now, I am at work, but would rather be home with my digital camera, laptop, and new items for listing and creating, or to simply even spend more time on promoting, which I don't do nearly enough of as it is. Oh well, at least I can work on my writing projects here during downtime... Grateful to be employed, only wishing I could employ myself! Someday maybe, the possibilities are so endless.

I am currently trying to play catch up, both on new designs and creating as well as listing. My mother has had a few health issues so I lost some of my creativity time for a bit.
Amazing how much you miss it when you don't have time for it isn't it. I am kicking around a few different promo ideas for upcoming sales and such, if you have any good ones feel free to shoot me a message, your thoughts are always appreciated.
I have also been fooling around with a couple of new projects, one is a design for notecards that I have been doodling and tweaking for awhile, I hope to have that to my Aunt who does printing very soon.
The other is writing, which I have always loved to do. I have a couple good stories I am working on, but what a daunting project, I am not sure if these will ever pan out into something more or not... Only time will tell.
Iwould love to hear from you, thoughts, ideas, etc....
