Were does the time go??? I seem to have no more time than I did when I was working 45-55 hours a week at our family business all those. years. I use to have a large home decorated from top to bottom, many gifts purchased, planned parties, watched our grandchildren for a whole weekend every other week etc, etc,. This year, my first as a jewelry designer with a online store, face-book, and blog. I have not one present purchased and I have (5 grandchildren) the Christmas tree is half lit. The ornaments are coming out of the back of the garage tomorrow, if we can locate them after our move. I have accomplished submitting and winning design challenges, small shows, submitting to magazines and a book and getting some great people in my circle on Etsy. I think I need to really organize my business and next year I will be able to do it all. Maybe, anyway it's a goal. . For now I will enjoy the last couple weeks before Christmas and maybe hang some more pictures so it looks like us. For those who don't know I have been in a 2 year transition so that would be an accomplishment. If you haven't noticed I have gift certificates thanks to my friend Amanda and a promo going on now through Christmas. I also have a large amount of amazing glass, and pendants from my favorite artists and some exciting new ideas for the first of the year. Looking forward.
