A day in the life of a crafter
As far back as I can remember, I was always around crafters. I remember having a friend and her mom always made these awesome DIY favors for her birthday party. My mom has always invented something mostly through sewing (which I don’t have the patience for). I have always loved art. I remember always requesting those art kits or science kits for every birthday and Christmas.
To this day have a hard time choosing which one I want to master. I love them all. Most of my days are spent designing and producing greeting cards. I’m constantly finding ways to stand out from the crowd. I still don’t list my items as quickly as I would like but that falls onto time management and doing less procrastinating.
From the moment I wake I am planning my day over a hot cup of coffee. blogging, checking school, and my site stats. I then write a list of goals for the day and try my best to accomplish them. Sometimes ideas flood my mind and I need to get them out whether it’s crochet, my cards, or my blog. So most times I go about my day according to my ideas.
Usually during my “Free Time” which is when my hubby comes home and we have dinner and watch a movie or some sort of series that we are into at the time. I can’t seem to just watch a movie or show without my hands getting bored. So I pick up my hook and crochet during these times.
I seem to always be “working” even though it doesn’t feel like work, I am glad that it doesn’t I would have been burnt out a long time ago. I have days where I just want to finish up the blanket instead of cards or I just want to blog and work on cards.
As a crafter, I am an organized mess. Those of you who are not crafters would walk into my craft room and think I’m a hoarder!. For those of you who know a crafter or are a crafter yourself you know exactly what I am talking about. It looks like a mess but believe me I know where everything is. When my craft room is actually organized and clean I feel misplaced.
I am constantly seeking inspirations and ideas from others, or things that pop into my head. If you have some time please check out my Etsy shop. Need something customized? feel free to email me and I will do my best to meet your needs. I am always up for a challenge :).
Have a beautiful day!
