Non-Crafting Post

Yeah, I got nothing to share today. I thought it would be interesting to see how many people really visit my blog and read my posts. hehe So today, I am going to just write....I mean, TYPE. hehe

I usually don't post when I don't have anything to share. Plus, recently, more like a long while now, I only post as needed...meaning DT purposes only and when I do, I don't talk much about my personal life. Reason? Mainly because I am a very reserved person. Some people might even think I am a stuck up person. LOL I am not, really.

Well, today I am going to share a little about myself. I am a very busy person, I admit. I work full time, 10 hours a day as a matter of fact. I have two small kids. They drive me nuts sometimes but I love them dearly. They are everything to me!

People ask me how I manage work, person life, and craft at the same time. I don't know. I just do it. I sacrifice sleep time. I shouldn't but I do because I love to craft! How do you guys manage it all? I know everyone is busy as well!

By now, I am pretty sure you guys, my friends know that I procrastinate. LOL I take myself doing everything! I am a very last minute person! Which reminds me, I want to apologize to my April Secret Sister. I still haven't send her stuff yet!

So what have I been up to lately? Hmm...A LOT...working on stuff for my Etsy store, DT work, kids.

Hey, guess what stamps I really want these days (I know, totally off the subject)? I want them but can't afford them right now. Bet ya don't know! hehe SIMPLY SASSY stamps! When they first came out, I didn't really care for them but after seeing all those gorgeous samples creations out there, man, how I wish I owe at least one! One day! hehe Gotta take care of my son's school tuition first! Pre-school is EXPENSIVE!! Just think, the little girl will start in by the end of the year! I am going to be seriously BROKE!

Anyway, if you read this far, I truly want to thank you from the bottom of my heart! I totally appreciate you all! I apologize for not being able to visit everyone's blogs sometimes. I try to but just don't have much time. I hope everyone understands.

I live on very little sleep too...I'm an early bird:) I think as women, we know what we gotta do and what we wanna do and manage to fit it all in...LOL...

You sound like me. My fellow teachers are always asking me how I manage to make time to craft. They are shocked when I say I don't watch any TV. I read but I very rarely ever watch TV unless my husband is watching it in bed. I just much rather craft. And honestly I don't miss the TV. At all.

I want those Simply Sassy stamps too! I didn't like them much at first but as I see them more they are going on me. They are very quirky and fun! HUGS!!!

You are too funny Kim! You and some of the other ladies simply AMAZE me with the ability to manage everything that you do! Taking care of the family, house, work, and then have time to make gorgeous craft projects! WOW!! ME? I can barely get daily routines down! I have to sneak in my craft time through out the day (more like the week)! LOL! and speaking of Secret Sisters, only April?you're not so far behind...LOL!!
Have a great weekend and ENJOY your Mother's Day!! ;D

I am glad you posted this, lets me "know" you a bit better. I think we all just "do" what we can to fit things in!
I'm still not loving the Simply Sassy stamps...which is actually a good thing as my wishlists are too long as it is! LOL!

Alice Wertz said...

Hi Kim!

I'm here, reading your post! I can totally understand where you're coming from...been there, done that, and still, today, there's not enough time in a day to do all I want (every day!). And, not enough moolah to buy everything I think I need! LOL! Have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs, Cami

YES! I do read your posts Kim! :) You totally crack me up girl! For someone who doesn't like to share personal stuff on the blog, I do know one thing . . . you are the sweetest, most generous, kind-hearted person! :) I attest to that! Thanks for sharing this with me and the rest of blogland. You inspire me and I still can't do it all . . . more so now with 3 kiddos! :) A Happy Mother's Day to you Kim!

Kimberly, I always enjoy the more talkative posts than just the cards, it's nice to read about you :-) As for me, I have found too my blog posts are very centred around DT deadlines and I don't talk a lot--I'm always worried about privacy, and then on top of that I'm usually in a rush when I do up my post and don't know what to say LOL!
Have a lovely weeekend!
