I closed my shop for a few days this week to make some adjustments in the production side of things. It felt really weird to come home from work and not immediately start printing orders.
It made me think more about my life on a day-to-day basis. I work my day job for 8 or 9 hours. Then I go home and tackle all the days orders and if I'm lucky, a blog post. Throw dinner, a shower and sleep in there and I realized I only spend 3-4 hours per weekday on my business.
I sit here and hope that my customers will love my product enough that the fact that every order is not tied in pretty twine will not matter to them. I hope that bloggers know that I'm still a fan even if I don't leave them comments. I hope these things don't come across as me "not caring" or "not trying."
Because I care so much and try so hard! I know when "The Day" comes when I do "That Thing" (are you following me?) I will have more time for the little details. But right now I'm working hard to just cover orders, blogging, and of course, working full-time. I hope you'll bare with me till I see it through! ;]
