The first full week of summer is always so crazy for me. Juggling work and mom duties becomes all intermingled and my priority list is a mess. Mom guilt creeps in there too.
So... I'm trying a little experiment I'm getting up at 4am every week day (started 2 days ago) to get some, if not all, my work done before the kids wake up. The kicker? The kids are getting up earlier than they did when getting up from school! Earlier! What on earth for and why oh why?
In any case, this tryout seems to be working for me. I'm sharp and efficient with work because I know it's just a matter of time before my alone time is up. We'll see how long I can keep it up. The real novelty is getting to bed before midnight. I'm a night owl and the 9pm bedtime is foreign territory but I'm making myself do it. Wish me luck!
The Fantasy Petals are finally up in the shop and new Petals Slides (which are great for gift wrapping and card making) are also there. The center of the slides can be customized in so many ways—I used embellishments and bubble caps cut with the Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Tool which is my newest favorite tool.
Don't forget that the Leaf Tag will only be available until tomorrow night! If anyone is interested in sharing their projects that was made with the leaf or inspired by it, please upload it here.
Be well my friends!
