Time is not on my side

So many things have been popped up lately that I feel like I am being pulled in a million directions. 

Not only am I working on several handmade Christmas presents, I am also trying to get my crafts pulled together for my new shop, which will hopefully open in Feb. 2011. 

Then there is the whole web designing my shop, which is taking a looooong time to put together. I'm very happy that my logo design is complete, but in addition to the blog itself my business cards and other printables are still not. 

On a personal note, after seeing my doctor for my yearly checkup last month I was told that I need to start working out more and eating a lot healthier than I had been previously doing. So, I joined The Couch-to-5k running plan. The goal is to have you running a 5k in 9 weeks. I am currently on week #2 and feel 100% more energized and all around better. The first day was brutal, since I had never run before in my life, but I can tell that it is getting easier. I no longer look like a beet after my 30 minutes!

I'm also gearing up to focus a lot of time on writing. When I was in college, many moons ago, I started a novel. I feel that there is no better time than now to finish it. So, I have given myself a July 2011 completion date deadline. So far, I only have one chapter done. So, I have a long way to go.

Then there is my '80s party, which even though is not until August, requires a lot of thought. And, my sister has asked that I help "craft" her wedding next year.

In addition, I am also contemplating some personal changes that are requiring time. So, as you can see my time is very limited, which leads me to wonder where my blog fits into all of this. I do not want to shut it down, because I enjoy corresponding with all of you through it, but I feel that I just can't put in the time right now. So, what I have decided to do is to write only when I feel the urge to, which might not be that much. 

I'll see how things are going in the New Year, and maybe pick up writing on a regular basis again. But for now, I'll still be around, popping in from time to time to let you see my latest craft projects and stopping by your blogs to check out your awesome craft projects. 

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas holiday season, and as always, Happy Crafting!


  1. Whew! I'm worn out just reading about all that you're up to! But everything sounds great and I totally get the "blogging is not a priority" feeling.

    I wish you luck in all your ventures!

  2. We'll be happy to hear from you whenever you pop by, but we'll miss ya! Good luck with all of those endeavors!

  3. This is a busy time for all of us. Everyone understands how our lives sometimes take priority and dictate an order beyond our control. Try to relax a bit amidst your hectic schedule. You'll see your exercising will invigorate you. Take care.

  4. We all understand! Life gets in the way sometimes -- but life is important! Hope it all goes well with your sis, and I hope we get updates on the couch to 5k. Sounds like an awesome program, I'm excited for ya!

  5. We understand and you are so much more busier right now than I am! Just posted two bibs on the destash. I can't believe how much fabric I have gone through this year!
    Thanks for the inspiration!
