a busy season...


I'm kind of at a loss for anything interesting to say... which begs the question: why am I blogging? I'm not exactly sure. Please accept my apologies for the rambling that is about to occur. December is shaping up to be a crazy-busy month. Why is the holiday season so busy?! All I want to do is sit in my PJs in front of the Christmas tree, eating popcorn and drinking hot chocolate. Is that too much to ask?! I'm in the midst of preparing to be a vendor at Renegade LA, and I'm ever so grateful that I can take care of half my prep whilst sitting on the couch. But I've still got a lot to do -- and that's weighing on me a bit! It's tricky to determine how much effort to put into my preparation. Of course I want things to look great (scratch that. I want everything to be perfect) but I don't want to kill myself in the meantime (ha!). Because with effort, comes expectation. And when my fears start showing up and I start worrying "what if I don't sell anything?", it makes me wish I didn't care. But OF COURSE I care. I'm passionate about my little business, and want to be able to make a living through it. So, I'm trying to find the balance between caring too much + not enough. One of life's challenges, you know? So there you have it. Those are the thoughts swirling around in my head and the things keeping me busy these days. How are you feeling about the holidays? Hope you're finding time to sit on the couch and drink hot chocolate!

I totally get this. i drive myself (and my husband) crazy trying to make things the best they can be in all areas of our business but i do also think putting too much pressure on myself can be a really bad thing.

i just started doing art shows and i worked liked a slave on the booth design and product displays on the weeks leading up to the first one. :)
