Busy {bee}

STOP the bus, I need to get off! That's exactly how life feels right now.

There is not enough hours in the day, days in the week, weeks in the month... I know I've just been on holiday but even that was far too busy and we were constantly on the go. I'm juggling my full time office job, my service assessing, being a Mum, Wife, Cook, Cleaner, Personal Shopper and still fitting in some design jobs I have scheduled... AND I'm crap at juggling too!

I'm usually such an organised person but my head is literally spinning.

So, what do I do when I'm so busy? I sit down and I design something funny to cheer myself up. I've said this phrase out loud so much in the past few days (not in-front of baby though, don't worry)...

This design will feature in a collection of postcards that I'll soon be launching in my etsy shop and it will also be available to purchase as a print. I already have my first order for a print and it's not launched yet! I get the feeling this design will be popular, I still giggle when I read it!

What do you do when you're stressed / busy to cheer yourself up?

I absolutely love this design! You're so clever. Oh I know that busy feeling at the moment - every to-do list is insurmountable. My usual trick is to make a cuppa while I calm down, then I use a little game called, 'The Power of Three' (which you have to say in a Power Ranger-like way!) Then I say, 'get dressed, make bed, wash face - GO!' and I always get myself up and go and do those three things. Then I'll say, 'tidy the desk, file that paper, address that envelope - GO!' and it always seems to work when I'm only thinking about those three tasks at once. And I do a little dance of self-awesomeness after every three ;). x

Thank you Anna for your kind words. I had such fun designing these ones.. now to put my thinking cap on to enhance the collection... it's exciting!

I LOVE the power of three concept! I will be giving that a go!

Ps... I said it in a power ranger voice before I read that part.. then I had a good ole chuckle x
