working so hard on the shop and my other company Artifex Support and also setting up Artifex Service. it's taking so much of my precious time, but believe me, when it's there, it's there.
i'm trying to get all the new gorgeous mixed media goodies in my webshop at the same time. like i didn't have anything else going on, right? but believe me, adding gelato's to the shop made me want to create RIGHT NOW. but that has to wait just a little bit longer.
it's no fun that i cant' share any fun new project with you guys. just yet. everything will work out in the end. i know it will work out.
i just have a hard time judging myself (why don't i work harder? why can i just get it all done in time? i am lazy... not allowed to rest because there's so much to do). i know i know, i'm so harsh on myself, and while typing this i'm thinking "GIRL!! come one!". rest when you need to rest. the only difficulty i still have is to allow myself to rest with permission. i'm at that point that when i need to rest, i do rest. but when i lay down that little voice in my head is telling me all those nasty things. all the negativity comes out and i feel horrible. it's just like i just don't allow myself to take care of myself. that's a little 'leftover' from my childhood. but i'm working on that one. i've come so far, this little last hurdle can be taken with a smile in the near future.
for now i'm just trying to keep the fun in all the preparation. just ordered a cash register, how's that for fun huh?! it's starting to get real soon birdies. in my own time. in my own time.
life is good. give yourself permission to take care of yourself. i'm learning.
oh PS: PLANNING A WORKSHOP SOON! MAYBE EVEN IN JULY. how's that for extreme fun huh?!
