Halfway through the month and I’m still keeping up with the journaling. The blog writing is going OK so far, although I must confess, writing a post every day is proving to be a bit much.
I already missed one post last week and I missed one yesterday… and looks like I will probably miss one again tomorrow, because it’s my mother’s birthday today and we’re going to visit her tomorrow. Which means I won’t be back home till after midnight. I’m OK with that. It’s about having fun and doing what I love.
In light of that there will be two days in one post today 😉
Besides, I like making both pages match each other, so it makes sense to photograph them together.
Super duper short blog post today, because it’s just one of those days… Got a nice new (expensive) backdrop for taking product pictures today and then wasn’t happy with it… That kinda day!
It’s probably just me. I’ll give it a chance for now and will take some pics these coming days.
As for the rest of the day, it was mostly just grey outside. Dyed a few really awesome colored TN’s and made a huge Dragon… My first A5 tooled Dragon. That was a lot of tapping with the hammer, my arm still hurts from it, but it turned out so pretty.
Journaling wise, I had a really easy day, because I did basically everything but the writing yesterday, lol.
Today I decided to start a little earlier with my December Daily pages…and then had this on my table for the rest of the day …
Lol, quite an inspiring mess, but no time to really do something with it. We’re still working really hard to get the Black Friday- Cyber Monday sales out the door.
Somehow I wished we would be able to spread the orders a bit more over the year. As a small business with all handmade customized products it’s almost impossible to prep for huge sales like this October and BFCM. I think we need to work out a plan for next year and find a way to spread the workload a bit over the year… If you have any suggestions, I’d love to hear them!
Still I managed to squeeze in a few moments for my journaling and had some fun with splashes of watercolor and some embossing powder.
Day eleven already, it feels like I just started this journey. Though I must confess it is getting easier to do a quick blog post at the end of the day and sitting down to do some journaling is also becoming more of a habit.
Not that I didn’t journal before, but it was mostly at night on the couch while watching TV with one eye. I feel I’m now more conscious about the journaling … and of course I get to use glue and stuff.
First week of the December Daily Journalling challenge done. I’m quite happy with how things are going, even though I missed 1 day writing the blog… at least I journalled every day and took some time to be creative just for me. It may not be much, but it definitely helps to keep me sane during these busy weeks.
It may not be much and I’m not splashing paint around, but it’s just enough right now and I’m keeping memories as I go along.
