Almost well

Well, I haven't healed completley but I do feel a bit better. Plus, I'm just very impatient and very much in love with creating with pc SO...ya can't keep me away from the table too long! *smile*

I've created different things for different reasons in the past two weeks. I had a couple (and still have some) of custom orders for beads that I have done in the past with the question if I could replicate some. Thank goodness I didn't use up all of my canes from the past! I made some new-old beads which was strange because we all get better with time and looking at old beads is weird...the flaws!!! The beginner mistakes that are so obvious all of a sudden!!! hahaha...what fun!

What I love is when customers ask me to do things with special colour combinations that I have never thought of using before. Orders like these are really nice to work on.

And the ideas that are buzzing about in my head want to become real aswell so I dabbled a bit with them and tried some new things out. Interessting!

I need time out to heal

I've been having a lot of pain latley in my neck and shoulders. Last night at work it got so bad that I got an exploding headache and even took some painkillers (which I normally don't do!). The pain is pretty bad at the moment and it's forcing me to stop claying for a while, so if you don't see any new stuff by me, that's why. I hope this wont take too long to heal so that I can dabble with the clay again and create some more things but I know I just need to be patient.

Where's the time?

Wow, business is soaring and I haven't had a dry spell in weeks now. My "out-box" always has an envelope waiting to go to the post and my "in-box" of my email account keeps buzzing with new "congratulations your item has sold" anouncements! I'm exited...but a bit frazzeled. I am really enjoying making my own beads and having people buy them with joy. It is very fullfilling for me. BUT I also have an out-of-home job and two kids, an apartment and a boyfriend! *smile* I'm not frazzeld of being successfull (anymore) but about finding the time to get everything done. Sometimes I am so scared of finding enough time that I freeze and waste time on the computer looking at sillyness instead of sitting at my work table.
Maybe I need to get some kind of plan when I should do what so that I can get into the rhythm of getting everything done that I want. As of next month I will be working more out side of home and I am a bit scared that I'll have even less time at my clay table.
Any suggestions, tips, experiences that you've made?
