change is in the air...

Okay, so I know I said I would be back with some photo's of my collections but something else has surfaced since then. I will get those photos out here sometime this week!
It has been an epiphany day, that's for sure!

So I was thinking about how serious I take my work, whether it be my skin care business, writing or making all the things I love to make, jewelery, crafts, sewing, etc...
My phone seems to ring often or a knock on my door, and someone always seems to need me, well, that's great, it really is, I love that I can help my family and friends, however, it is becoming too much. I realized I have not said no often enough.

And that is when it dawned on me... How can anyone else take my work seriously if I don't, I thought about it for a minute and thought, hmmmm, I do take it serious, I make my products the best I can, I research the ingredients and usually read directions, except when coloring outside the lines, that pertains to my crafting!

Anyway, if I took my work as serious as I thought, then I wouldn't have to worry about interruptions and people and things bothering me throughout the day when I am working. And that's is just it, I answer the phone, I answer an email and what do ya know, I allow all the other outside influences to decide what I am going to do with my days and before ya know it, my day is gone and I havent finished all the things I wanted to do for myself, my family and my work and that is what comes first in my life.

Ya know, if I worked outside of my home for someone else, no one would call me and ask me to take off work or call in late so I could help them, well at least I know they wouldn't unless it was an emergency, none of this piddly stuff that people think I should do for them, it's time I take me time and make me a priority.

So in conclusion, I have decided that my days are mine and mine alone, I am at work during the day and all other non work related issues will be handled after work hours.

hours of operation are: 7:30 am to 3:00 pm Monday through Friday.

love to you all
