You Try Everything Once
Well, you all might notice that some posts are missing and edited and some things have changed. This is very difficult for me, but I've been doing the whole selling my designs thing for about a week and I can tell you that it's just not for me. I have a 4 month old and a 3 year old that aren't getting the attention that they deserve. At one point earlier today, my 3 year old kept telling me he wanted someone else other than me, and I realized that I am spending way too much time at my computer, I'm overtired, irritable, etc. etc. I feel chained to my computer, and I haven't even done any real designing. I'm resigning from all of my stores. The deadlines and amount of work that this truly takes just isn't compatible with my life right now. This last fall my mom's group did an Andy Stanley Bible Study and he talked about knowing what direction you want your family to head in and then making good decisions that are compatible with that direction. I can truly say that me selling my designs is not compatible with the direction for my family. It took me a week to realize that. So.......I still love to design but I want to do so as time permits, without deadlines and obligations. You all are going to benefit because I still want to see others enjoy my talents so I am going to continue participating in blog trains and offering freebies. I never actually sold anything but at least I now know that I could do it. The thing is that I just can't come down from doing the work I need to do in my family.
