i feel like i am running in a million different directions lately. and it seems there is just never enough time to get it all done. i need better time management skills. more order to my chaotic life. i made a list of ways i can become more organized and plan to implement them in the coming weeks. because the schedule just promises to get crazier in the next few months.
i have been working a lot. (thank God.)
i don't think i have talked much about what i do for a living here. i am a waitress. nothing fancy about it. i wait tables and make pretty good money doing it. here in seattle you make more than you do in the south waiting tables. health benefits a 401K and everything. you can make a livable wage here doing what i do. and i actually really really love my job. i love being around people and i love the fast pace. and i am really good at it.
but still.....i have been having back problems and can't see myself doing this forever. i have bigger dreams. and i really don't believe you are ever too old to follow your dreams. my dream is photography. to own my own business. but i know nothing about it. and i am not a great self learner. i would need school. but that's what i see for my future. and i feel that is a very realistic goal for myself. i know i can do it! but i have to be patient. i have a family to consider. and the goal of getting to chicago must come first. then i can work on getting my butt in school. one thing at a time. and optimistic happy dreams of the future in the meantime! and waiting lots of tables! :)
on to other stuffs....if you grabbed one of my fall mini kits they are on their way! don't forget to link me up with the books you make with them! I can't wait to see.
my etsy shop WILL open this coming week. i am sooooooooooo excited. i put together some really neat new product to make december daily kits. and i will have mixed paper journals for sale and garlands and butterfly prints and all sorts of other pretty little things. i can't wait to share!
in the meantime here are some photos (FINALLY) of my fall mini book so far. if you are making one please share your links!!!!!
i used a lot of fabric in my book. i love that green zebra print stuff.
those little circles are actually the holes i punched from the papers to make the book. i use those a lot. all of my mini books lately have a cohesive style. i have been using the same little "this book belongs to" tags in all of them and similar designs. i like it that way. they all look like they go together.
those hambly leaf overlays were peeeeeerrrrfect for this project.
whew. photo overload. that's the basics of my book. i made a lot of blank pages that i can just add to throughout the season. hope it inspires you in some way!
have a great day!
