My New Daily Schedule

After determining again that I don't have enough hours in the day to get everything finished, I've determined that I need to really set up some time blocks during my day. (Thanks for the idea, Andrea!) My main focus is taking care of our daughter and playing with her each day, but I want to fit in time to work my Etsy business as well as take care of the housework, etc. It's definitely going to be a work in progress, but here it goes:

8-10AM Check emails, work on Etsy orders, prepare pkgs. for mailing, etc.
10-2 Play, lunch, more playing outside
2-3 pm Naptime?, check convos and work on orders, etc.
3-8pm Play, housework, make dinner, etc.

Wordless Wednesday--Growing Up Too Fast

Today is the last day of Little S's 2s preschool year. We're part of a Mommy/ Me class at our local co-op preschool in Granville, and I've loved attending preschool with her one day each week. Next year, she gets dropped off 2x each week, and while I'll be able to work on my business more during that time, I'll miss her terribly.

A Busy, Fun, Productive, and Profitable Day Today

After a late night finishing up coasters and chalkboard flowerpots last night, we started our day today w/ music class this morning. After that, we drove to the Pink Moon Cupcake Bakery to drop off my new chalkboard flowerpots in the shop! Yay! From there, off to the zoo to play for a few hours before meeting up w/ a new local Etsy customer who wanted to purchase a party banner for her wedding as well as several sets of ceramic coasters for her bridal party and others. It went really well.

I'm happy and proud that my day went really well, but we're exhausted around here tonight!

Total Blog Neglect--Again!

I admit, I have good intentions, but time keeps getting away from me lately. I am a real human being that just cannot find enough hours in the day to play with my busy 3 year old, keep our household running smoothly, keep my business running smoothly, and find time to blog a few times each week about interesting examples and such. I swear when I finally get time to take pictures of my recent custom orders, I will be posting again with real info. Thanks for hanging in there with me in the meantime! :)
