Back in the Swing

Well, it's time to get back into the swing of things. Today I reflected back on the last few months and found myself wondering where the time goes. I deliberately took some time off from blogging (so sorry if you've been checking but I just couldn't seem to write!) to get settled into a new job, try to figure out which direction to take the jewelry, all while I still am really, really missing my girl (see post below).

The job (well, technically I have been there seven months now so I can't consider it a "new" job) has me really hopping - in a good way. I've learned a new database (its the same system used a some really large amusement parks and ticketing services) and have become very involved with training - something I love to do. The days fly by and I count myself blessed to have a job I actually enjoy. On the Etsy site, I often see posts about wanting to do their craft as a full-time job - I'm not sure I want that. I'd love to be successful at what I do but have also discovered that I don't handle being home most of the time very well.

I hope everyone out there is also doing well and would love to hear about your jobs, Etsy shops and life in general. Best wishes for the upcoming New Year!

I agree 100%. I enjoyed my etsy sites while I was running them, but I never wanted to quit my day job to run them full time. I like my crafting to be fun and for work to (mostly) stay at work when I leave.
