Good morning everyone. I hope this post finds you well. All is great here. Busy as anything! We have about 4 weeks left before the end of this school term, so things are really getting busy at work and at Maria's school. But its all good. Busy is good they say. I think finally I have found my rhythm between work and school and everything else and its all going well. I always tend to make the same mistake...that is strive for perfection. But ..that's simply impossible isn't it? Its impossible to do everything perfect and as we progress in life, there are just too many variables that affect the amount of time we can dedicate to each area. More things are added, like work commitments, motherhood, school life etc and I am learning that its better to do many things "OK" and be good at them, rather than try to stretch your self for everything to be perfect and end up not doing such a great job at them.
I have learnt to pace my self. Things can wait right? But I will admit its a tough thing for me to do. I am not the type to let things go, but at least I am giving my self MORE time to work things out and not pressure my self.
Right now, it feels like I am wearing about 6 different hats...Sigh..Its hectic but its fast paced and I am used to that sort of pace. Some days though..Gosh I dream of a week in the sun , in the middle of nowhere , with NO ONE around and nothing electronic, a good book and a bikini body to die for (ok thats REALLLLLYYYY a far fetched dream LOL! But its my fantasy right? LOL). As long as I know my children are in good care (which they would be if I left them with hubby), and I know they are safe , then I think I can do it! Hmmm..even as I say that I feel uneasy. I think I would miss everything in about 1 day. LOL!
Anyway, speaking of pacing my self, I very very VERY reluctantly gave up my position at C'est Magnifique kit club last month and the September kit will be the last I designed with. I will stay on as part time sketch designer, but time is of the essence for me these days and that, together with .. well a busy life style has left me feeling uneasy about scrapping to the point where I do not think I was scrapping to the best of my ability. I absolutely LOVED the kits Leslie puts together and it was a very hard decision for me to make. But at this point in my life it was getting too much, and as some of you that have followed me for a while know, I gave everything up about 14 months ago after taking on way too much. This time I recognise the feelings of anxiety and scaled back before I did anything drastic.
So a HUGE thank you to Leslie and the team at C'est Magnifique for the support and understanding and professionalism over the last 9 months there. I will surely miss you guys!!
SO today I am showing you the last few projects I created with the stunning September kit AND add ons.
