Balance. Balance? Balance!



Do you have trouble finding balance in your life?  I know I do.  I struggle with how much I do and don’t do on a weekly basis.  I also struggle with how much I get done each week as well as what things I should do that I never get to.

Where should I spend my time?  On what should I focus?  How do I balance my work and home lives?

I recently made the statement, “It shouldn’t be this hard!”  When a wise friend said, “It doesn’t have to be.”  Simplify!  So now I have to decide what if anything I can cut.  I would like to cut out the housekeeping and cooking… but that isn’t possible.  So where do you save time?  How do you make better use of your time?

I want to spend my time making beautiful jewelry but I can’t ignore my responsibilities.  It’s not that I don’t want to do my responsibilities it’s just that I have a hard time accomplishing all of them and getting to what I love.

I could use some help.  What suggestions can you make?

Here is one of the things I have worked on in my time lately.

This is a Special Order Item I made this month. What do you think?


Happy After Mother’s Day!

Hello Everyone,

I hope you had a great weekend!  I hope you enjoyed your Mother’s Day.  My mom and I were surprised by my  sister, Chris on Sunday.  She and her husband came and made us supper and we had a nice time together.  It was still a pretty quiet day and mom got some much-needed sleep.  Over all it was a very nice Mother’s Day.

I hope you remembered to tell your mom that you love her.  I have to admit that I did not say “I Love You,Mom” on Mother’s Day.  I did say, “Happy Mother’s Day!” but this morning I realized it and told my mom that I love her and gave her a big hug.  So what did you give your mom for Mother’s Day?  I bet you can guess what I gave my mom!

You may remember the necklace that I made for her birthday a couple of weeks ago.  Well, I made her a matching bracelet for Mother’s day.  She loved it!

Have A Great Weekend!
