It is now after 4 am my time, and it is so quiet I can hear myself typing on the keyboard! That only happens 1.) when no one else is here or 2.) everyone is sleeping. Since I am hardly EVER here by myself, this is usually when I have "my time". This is very important to all human beings, but especially to this wife, mom, grandmother - ME! This is the time I relax, read my bible, work out some layouts or cards that I have dreamed up and/or just reflect on what I want to accomplish in the day.
Since I always have my hand in more projects than is humanly possible at times, I try to use the time I have to myself constructively. I plan like cards/layouts together, themed projects together etc. Then I pull all needed materials in a large canvas bag together, so when I CAN work on them, I just grab that bag and go to town!
This method DOES work, at least for me. In two days I made (just me) 150 cards! The first day, I stamped, embossed, chalked pieces and embellishments, then started assembling them. The second day I finished assembling them and added the envies, boxed them up in groups of 10 cards and had them ready for delivery before I had to go and pick up the girls at daycare. See what one highly motivated person can do? Being organized certainly helps!
Please, do not even for one moment think that I am a truely organized person 100% of the time. For alas, I am not. I try to make it count when I need it.
I do need to get ready for the crop in West Bath Saturday January 19, So the MOST I will be bringing is 2 bags, as compared to the 4 bags I brought last time!
