A few posts back I mentioned some goals I wanted to achieve. November is already here and quickly passing - realistically I will not be able to list 300 items in my Etsy Shop while preparing for two upcoming craft shows, and I am okay with that. It is great to aim high, and it is even greater to not get discouraged when not all of your goals are met. I am trying to take it easy this holiday season; it is important to enjoy time for yourself too. Success is too hard to come by when you are stressed and sleep deprived and rushed.
I would be so happy to be able to work my business full time, and the thought of this motivates me into overworking. I have decided to wait until early next year to work on some new products and ideas so I can take the proper time to experiment and have fun. This frees up time to keep up on this blog, create inventory, and breath once in awhile.
My family and friends celebrate Christmas, and what a hectic holiday that can be. I am doing my best to plan every little detail in advance. I already know what the gift tags are going to look like, and I almost know what I am going to get or make everyone. Christmas cards I still have to design, but it is almost easier for me to make them at random on the spot.
If you are going to be in the area please feel free to see me (CM Designs dba 1337art) at the following venues this month:
1st Annual Winter Warm-Up Craft Fair and Chili Cook-Off

It is important to take it easy this holiday season and find time to relax. You are not a super person, and it is okay if you did not accomplish everything you hoped for.
