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.

Yes! How it is so important to just take it one day at a time. Great advice! xo Samantha

that is quite key, right... one day at a time!

I find too that the day job is taking over lots of my time and it's not easy to juggle it all. But one day at a time is the right attitude...

i like your attitude! i have a day job, too, and some days i am too tired to make dinner, let alone being creative. as long as we do the best we can with the time and energy we have, that's what counts, right?
