Motivation.... need some!

I am starting to burn out.... too many shows, too little time.....

It's a complete vicious circle, love them, hate them thing. I want to make stuff and I want to sell stuff, but I think I enjoy the creative making it for the sake of making it rather than the custom order deal that needs to be completed by XX/XX date. But, alas...all part of the business side of things. After Christmas, I really want to focus on the crafty side... I need it.

On another note, I got so many compliments the other day when I took my daughter to school. I put her in a dress I made her with some cool Amy Butler fabric and about 5 people commented on it. I think I will have to make some and list them on Etsy. Pictures coming soon....

you're not alone...i haven't done nearly as many shows as you have this season, and im sick of it. i just wanna roll clay and crochet things! im tired of caring about table covers and displays.

ps- youre sitting on a goldmine, w/ the potential for adult size amy butler skirts/dresses. had you made the one pillowcase dress in a women's large, i would have worn it every damn day this summer. : )

Glad to hear I am not the only one grumbling about it.

And thanks for the encouragement on the dress. I love that fabric too. Note to self...make some adult skirts!

Is it that humongous order??? That would burn me out also.

I'm also feeling the pressure of getting everything done before the holidays. We're making all of our items so others can do their holiday shopping, then we have little time to do our own...or maybe that's just me.

I'm with Heather...all things Amy Butler are divine! If you ever have the time to branch out into adult wear...I will be the first to sign up as a faithful customer. hahahah My wee ones are too big for the baby goodies, but I have your beautiful items in mind for gifts when the next family baby arrives.
