Easter came and went in a flurry of colorful eggs! I had a girl scout meeting scheduled for Sunday, so we changed it to Saturday so the girls could enjoy Easter with their families. What better activity to do, than something Easter. So the girls and I went ahead and made some super cute sock bunnies that I found an online tutorial for here. It was so simple, and the girls had so much fun. I just picked up a package of kids socks, brought the rice to fill, had the girls tie off the ribbon for the neck and rubber band for the ears, and draw on a cute face. We cut the ears and voila! They loved it. I get so stressed trying to think of activities they’ll enjoy and I’m glad they enjoyed it. Hope everyone had a great Easter!
It’s so hard to get motivated sometimes…like the daily grind just really grinds you up and spits you out. I have so many ideas and wants and goals, but at the end of the day…I can still be content with not getting to any of it, and laying in bed with my little Kira. (Albeit, she is quite the reason why I get so tired in the first place).
I have a full time job, which thankfully, I enjoy. Not many people I know can say that. I also have a part time job, which I don’t enjoy quite as much and really think of it as a chore…but it brings in a little extra money for the family which is always good. I’m a Daisy Girl Scout troop leader to eight kindergarten girls. Coming up with activities, lessons, and badge earning interest is a lot of work for these little ones! And I have my own small business, and even though yes, my Etsy shop sold it’s last item listed a few weeks ago…business has been steady locally and that has been keeping me busy.

It makes me kind of sad though when something like my Etsy shop, and sewing things in general – when even that gets to be something like a chore. It’s different when you make things, post things, and people buy it…than when people order custom things from you. It’s more pressure to me. But all in all, I do so enjoy the time I spend with my sewing machine and most especially finishing a project on my list.
If only I could find the time and energy to get motivated into actually putting more effort into it, so that it can be more than I’d hoped. I mean, the extra money is always good – but I love getting emails from the customers. That’s the best part.
How do you balance life? Aside from all the above, I have a family to love and care for, a home to tend to, and hey…what about me?!! Lol.
How time flies…
