I have been feeling a bit overwhelmed lately, as it just seems that there is always so much to do and the time just passes too quickly. Even though I get up early in the morning, I find that before I know it, it is mid-afternoon and then dinner time and then darkness. I always enjoy being busy, as it means that our little business is thriving. I never seem to run out of ideas and my 'to do' list keeps growing longer with each passing day. There are days when I feel on top of things, and there are some days when I do not. I haven't quite figured out how to keep things on an even keel. But somehow, I think that it doesn't even really matter. I need to let things 'be' and enjoy what is in front of me.
Today I will be finishing up creating the new pattern packets for my two new projects and writing and sending out the next newsletter announcing the site update. I finished the pattern for the Springtime Iris Banner (SLDP220) yesterday.
I am working on the Vintage Bunny Pull Toy pattern today and doing the final touches on it. These are the little pastel bunny toys:
It seemed like so long ago that I made them! :)
Keith has some new plaques as well that are really nice.
His word art plaques are really great sellers and people keep asking for him to make more. We really like it when our patterns have such an overwhelming response.
So I will keep it at that today. Hopefully we will be able to get everything up on the site by this evening, as well as send out a newsletter. Then I need to move on to doing my Christmas projects for the holiday issue of the magazine. Even though it is just getting warm here, I need to start thinking of winter and snow again. But I am used to that.
It is cool and overcast here today. Yesterday was downright dreary. I am still waiting to be able to comfortably wear my summer clothes, and make a trip to the beach. I know I just need to be patient and it will come in good time. Until then, I certainly will keep busy,
Have a wonderful Thursday.
