As I mentioned in a previous post, I've started counseling clients in my Masters program, as well as working in the counseling office two hours a week and trying to start a therapy group for teens/tweens. It is very exciting, I am finally able to use the skills I learned in my class with real clients, who have real problems. As wonderful as this is, it adds a lot on my regular coursework. I most certainly am not here to complain, I know I am blessed to be able to get my masters and help people. I know I am SO lucky to be able to create and do what I love and to share it with you guys.
With all this being said I know myself, now more than ever and I know I am getting overwhelmed. There are so many fun new creative ideas I have in my head, but I have no time to sit down and make anything new. Every time I get a spare few hours I end up spending it on making orders. Again, I am blessed to be getting orders to work on, but I really need a chance to express my creativity in new ways. I decided that in order to make this happen I am going to put a week delay on shipping orders. All orders placed after the 15th won't be shipped until the 24th. I will use the time to make new items, take new photos, list new items and to do some behind the scene stuff that you guys don't see.
I am really excited as I approach my one year birthday of my business. I wouldn't be able to do this without each and every one of you. I can't thank you enough. Stay tuned for a post about how this year has been for me.
