Merry-Go-Round - Time— to manage or not to manage

Jump on our merry go round and join a group of artists/crafts-women from around the world as they link hands and tell you a little bit about their lives in craft.
Do look up the answers from the rest of this band of crafters (links to your left).
If they haven't all posted yet, remember we all live in different time zones and check again later...
This month:
Time management— how do you juggle your time— how do you wish you could juggle your time?

"Juggle" is about right...

At the moment, for instance, I'm having to deal with an overload of work in my day job and that has to take priority. Whenever that happens, I don't have any time for creation and I just deal with orders, if any...
Sometimes, after a long day of working for my day-job, I will have an outburst of creativity and suddenly put together one or several items in one evening. But I prefer to be able to take a whole day when I work on something, often working on several things in parallel, exploring techniques and allowing projects to "mull" some...

Over the past few years, I have dedicated all or nearly all my leisure time to Le Bar du Vent, researching or actually designing / crafting. That is how I juggle my time and my double life— one day at a time.

New / Nouveautés

Need feedback! Positive, constructive feedback.
Besoin de retours, avis... et autres encouragements.

Moss terrarium necklaces— I'm only getting started— I just love the colours.
Not posting them abroad, so far— I'm not sure it would be legal. I suppose I might consider Europe, though.
Colliers terrarium de mousse ; ce n'est qu'un début. J'aime ces couleurs !
Je ne les envoie qu'en France, pour l'instant : je crains que ce ne soit pas légal de les envoyer à l'étranger. Mais peut-être que l'Europe serait autorisée...

And now for something completely different, though with lovely colour too—
Rien à voir, mais là aussi j'aime la couleur.
An original, indispensable little something that will add flare to your table, whatever the occasion. Solid copper.
Une accessoire original et indispensable, en cuivre, pour ajouter ce petit je-ne-sais-quoi à votre table, quelle que soit l'occasion.
