If you're busy and you know it, CLAP your hands...

You know you are busy when....

1. You have more orders than you have time, and honestly you didn't do any real marketing?

2. You can't keep up with your kids and they are on summer break for heaven's sake!

3. You agree to be a contributor to a fast growing mommy networking website. (Me? Really? Are they kidding?) I posted my first article, and it was a little like shoving out my first child... so please, somebody read it! This is what the picture looked like anyway....


4. You can't find the time to make the website that is bringing in the orders look professional! (Because orders are already coming in...?)

5. You spend a long weekend out at your mother's, 'to use her serger', but your sister ends up on bedrest and you spend a lot of the time helping out with her kids and playing in her pool with your own kids...

6. You can't find the time to update your dang blog...and it's the one thing that got all the rest of this stuff rolling!

But at least you have these to show for it:

Oh my heck! The Giraffe print finally...And while I planned to pair it with pink...my funky friend chose the green. And wow! It's totally fab.

The red paisley in a small tote...

A request for a key fob inside the tote? How cool is that?

More spirodots. Very popular.

And my second black paisley large tote.

And last but not least...See I like the pink with the Giraffe, after all!

Threeundertwo said...

oh my heck - those are the cutest bags! Love the polka dots and the giraffe print. Just making the bags would have taken me um, forever.

I wish I had YOUR kind of busy...

The thing I noticed most is that even though you did have a hectic time you had time to play with the kids in the pool. Now that must have been fun.

But I hear you. Updating the blog and "just" writing that small daily post takes more time than expected. Creating a pro website on top of that and having a family + being creative to come up with new ideas and not to forget fulfilling orders.... man just thinking about it I'm exhausted.

I have tried for some time with my photography. But even though it doesn't really turn out as I would like it to. well maybe there are other plans for me... who knows. I do however like the time I get to spend with family and it's worth more than I could ever get out of any work. yeah I know ... a little crazy ;-)

OK, you are busy!

Jill said...

(clapping so hard that my hands are raw and bleeding......)

Yeah, been there. I'm there right now. I've just been sneaking time here and there to read a few blogs, but not taking time to update my own.
I also need to update the website for my home business. No time. No time.
I did take my daughter shoe shopping today, because there's always time to buy new shoes.

Buy your own serger, then you can stay up all night sewing, without any distractions.

The giraffe print is way cute! (I like it with the pink)

Melissa said...

Oh my gosh - you are very very busy! It's always a mixed blessing when you're successful, huh? Or a double -edged sword...? Well, you gt the idea - I always mix my cliche's :)

Love the new bags - I'm going to go read your article now - congrats on being published!

Clap, clap, clap! It seems as though the days are getting shorter and my "To Do" list is getting longer.

Cute totes, by the way!!

Beth said...

I LOVE them and I'm so not a handmade bag kind-of-girl. They look great, I especially like the green lining.

I'm checking out pricing now...

Laurie said...

These bags are super cute!!! When things slow down around here I will have to come back for another look see.

Melissa said...
