It's Friday!

I must read this book.  I always look forward to the posts on Nubby Twiglet's blog.  She always has great posts, stocked full of small business and freelance wisdom.  Plus she is just such an inspiration for me creatively.  Her design work is so beautiful and fresh.

A few other things that sparked my interest this week:

I've been craving pie lately, and these mini pies look like they'd be fun to make and nibble on.

I would love to have a handbag line sometime in the future of my business.  She is inspiring.

Love Emma's dress and Elsie's shoes in this post.  And I'm excited to see their new dress and scarf designs for spring!  I love the peek at the striped maxi dress.

I really want a galaxy printed dress.

I'm definitely feeling along the same lines as the lovely ladies of Pennyweight and Orchid Grey in needing to re-structure & re-balance my life right now.  The past month hasn't been too easy on me I must say.  My car's transmission is shot and I've been unable to drive it for the past 3 weeks... making me crazy!  I need to take some time out to figure out if I can afford to fix it or if I should sell it.  Sad day.  I had really really bad allergies to pollen a few weeks ago which turned into a cold which turned into a sinus infection and a really bad cold.  Today is the first day that I am finally feeling a wee bit better.  And thank god it is sunny today so when I have to go walk around the hood to do my errands, I don't have to trudge through the rain sick!  Basically, feeling like crap for 3 weeks and not having a car to do my errands has made work feel a million times harder and more tedious.  All of the simplest things have been feeling so time consuming without a car.  And not being able to work out for 3 weeks has been making me feel a bit in the dumps.  
BUT, today is a new day.  The sun is out, I'm feeling a bit better, and I totally woke up thinking today is Saturday, worried I wouldn't have time to get everything I needed to get done by tonight, but then I realized it was Friday.  Woo!  I have an extra day! :)

I'm hoping that starting on Monday I can set a new schedule, hopefully I'll be feeling better so I can feel a little more on top of everything.  Monday will be the start to a new schedule, a clearer mind, hopefully a healthier body, and all things good.  Have you been feeling like you to need to re-structure your life lately?  I've got Spring fever I think.

I feel you, 100%. This has been a really tough winter for me. I have so much I want to do, but feel limited by money and the need to work so much to stay afloat. I think the "today is a new day" mentality is key and I've been trying to focus on that as well. Sending lots of love!

p.s. My car is on its last leg as well. Sigh.

I am right there with you in the biggest way. uggghhh... i feel you girl. for different reasons of course. Can I just say, Im ready for some real happiness in my life! Life gut busting laughter with equal amounts of organization and ease with work. I kind of have a feeling it might not happen, but then I may just be feeling a bit pessimistic after the past few weeks. Just know, half way across the USA, Im feelin ya. xo.
