We had a DT meeting today at Keepsakes to plan our schedule for the fall. As I've mentioned before, I'm trying to pare down my responsibilities right now. Eliana is getting busier and busier and doing less sleeping and playing by herself, which means she gets more of my attention and I get less time to myself. So.... I will be teaching fewer classes in the fall, and I passed the buck to Susan Beth as far as the Keepsakes blog goes. She will do a marvelous job with it, I am sure, and she has more enthusiasm for it than I have right now. It was nice to get paid for blogging, sure, but right now I'm choosing sanity, especially since I barely have time to craft as is, much less craft for myself, create classes, blog for myself, and blog for the store. Something had to give, and that was it. *sigh* A weight lifted, yes, but I will miss it. On the plus side, though... it should mean I'll have a few extra minutes to blog here! =D =D
Most of my craftiness in the last couple weeks has revolved around my daughter's 2nd birthday party this Saturday. We're having a splash party (read: toddlers in swimsuits playing with bubbles, a kiddie pool, and a giant sprinkler ball!) with a sort of beach theme to it. I'll have to post pictures when everything is done, but for right now there are just ideas brewing in my head and yummy treats in the making.
So... that's what I've been up to. Trying to figure out what things to keep doing, what to let go of, and what to do with the time I do have... I haven't figured it all out just yet, but it's getting there.
