where have i been

well i was just trying to catch up....I got a job 6 weeks ago and was going to work part time...but since getting it and being trained i have been able to do my sets in good time and keep getting put on the schedule every week instead of every other week. It is a good feeling to be of use and do a good job but i miss my down time to do my designing and art. We work 2-3 nights a week but with drive times and working 10-15 hours it is hard to get sleep (3-5hours a day) so by the time we get home i just want to sleep 12-15 hours straight. then i seem to get up take care of family obligations or holidays and then BAM it is time to pack for work again...we put in 30-40+hours in the 2-3 days...I feel for the boss as she always has several hours of paper work to do on top of our store time, drive time and sleep time....not really much time to eat etc....

SILLY me managed to sprain my thumb/wrist by trying to beat my time and it hurt =0( and now i am in a brace for a few to try and get it better before monday night...wish me luck.

hope you are having a great paper crafting week! i have lots of samples to get done and uploaded etc....

What's holding you back? Is what is holding you back more important, more precious than what it is you are seeking/yearning for? Don't give any more power to things/people/situations/beliefs that chip away at's time to look all of those things in the face and LIVE A BEAUTIFUL LIFE ANYWAY! Today is the day...

moments along the journey

life is never the perfect scheme/journey we want but rather the journey of  loving and living with the journey we are meant to live and learn from and we often must find happiness in THE moments we have along the journey to get where we need to be.

yes i believe that will be my new one word canvas so glad i am alive even with the scares and scars from survival that has been left on my mind, heart and body. Cherish....what makes us US....Now i know to cherish life it can be gone in an instant yet i am struggling with attitude lately and i wish there was a magic fix but there is not. I want to be selfish and have all my time be my time --do art and be with family on my schedule and work to pay bills...(to do art) much to do and so little time.
I do want to ....follow my heart.
 any one else have to think things through and figure out what is best all around ??? any ideas? on how? to work it all out and have a magic positive attitude instantly? =0)
LIfE never a smooth road.
