Don’t Work Yourself Up

Hi friends!

I just wanted to pop in and let you know that I am alive. Things are just a little crazy now. Long story short – I got a new job! I’m currently transitioning out of the job I’ve had for over 9 years. That’s a long time! My days are spent teaching everything I can possibly teach my replacement and my nights are, well, emotional. I can usually handle stress but unbelievably overwhelming, all consuming stress? Yeah. I don’t handle it well.

So while I’m dealing with the job transition and what seems like a huge influx of orders, the blog will have to take a backseat for a little bit. Once I’m in the hang of the new job I’ll be able to relax and my creative mojo will return. In the meantime, I’m just trying to stay offline whenever possible.

Speaking of Etsy, the shop will stay open but things will take a few extra days.

The above quote that I wrote out is from Tristan Prettyman’s “Don’t Work Yourself Up.” It’s one of my favorite songs that she wrote.

    You’re only human- and a woman with sometimes uncontrollable hormones and emotions! Don’t be too hard on yourself- I think you multitask so well it’s only human to get overwhelmed. But this too shall pass. And before you know it you’ll be looking back thinking ‘I did it!’

    I know the feeling. ;) I’ve been in hermit mode for two straight days.
