My youngest child just started Kindergarten, so I am transitioning into a new phase of my life. For the first time in 5 1/2 years, both my children will be in school all day long. I began designing crochet in earnest in 2011. So, most of the time I have been home with my daughter, my focus has been split.
I am hoping now that I have an actual "work day", it will be easier to get things done without the constant interruptions that make everything take three times as long, so then I will have more time to enjoy the kids when they are home! Well, that's the goal anyway. I know it will take a few weeks to get used to this new reality, and figure out a schedule that makes time for everything I want to get done while still leaving flexibility for when the creative spark hits and cannot be denied.
Although I took this summer off from submitting new designs to magazines, etc, I have not really slowed down. This month we are preparing all of the various elements to ship our second Ficstitches Yarns Crochet Kit Club AND I am crocheting my sister's wedding dress!
More details about the dress and Ficstitches kit will be coming soon, as my other goal for this new phase of life is to schedule in more regular blogging. There are so many things I have not yet had time to write about and share, book reviews, new patterns, and so much more. I am looking forward to finally having the time to make time for writing as well as several other new business ventures I cannot wait to share with you. Stay tuned!
