Finding My Happy Place (Again)

I've been feeling a little all over the place lately. A little bit like a bird trying to fly in three directions at once.  Or maybe straight into a window.  Repeatedly.  Which completely makes sense given that I'm trying to kick start a multi-faceted business that currently has three website builds in progress, business paperwork to keep up with, and a fairly large-scale software application in design.  Plus the family that needs groceries and hugs and all that good stuff.

Sure, I'm writing twenty-two lists to try to manage it all and get a little more grounded.  And buying a couple more filing cabinets.  But this morning I tried something completely non-job related to spend some of my creative energy.  Painting, of course.

I'm feeling a little bit more pulled together now.  We'll see if I can get some of the stuff on the lists done now.  Hope you all have a great weekend!

Life around here...

Hi there... I've missed you!  How are you doing?
Things have been a little all over the place around here (as usual).  I've been making journal books and ornaments.  It makes me happy to see them all lined up!
And I've been working a little on my basement disaster.  Here's a before and after (Ok, not that much change, but I did beat back the piles a little.  I'm hoping to put my craft tables down here.
 I did manage to carve out a play area for Harper too.
Oh my goodness, I got Harper's school photos back today.  That fake smile-for-the-camera smile cracks me up.
And I've been working on a logo and website for my first customer!  So far, so good... hopefully it will be up and running this week or early next week!
And finally, I've worked on my website too.  It's a little slow going, but I can see where I'm headed with it now at least.  I'll let you know when it's posted and what in the world I am doing!
