A Day Off?
I crochet every day. I'd crochet every single second if I could, but there are other things that need my attention sometimes... kids, chores, dog, husband, etc. I work mostly on custom orders that I receive through my Etsy or Artfire shops, and I rarely have time to stock new pre-made items... and I hardly ever finish anything for ME. So a few weeks ago I decided that I'm going to start taking a "day off" from my shop stuff once a week. I chose Saturdays... mainly b/c there's no mail on Sunday. Ha ha. I kind of felt bad about sitting around crocheting stuff for ME, like I was neglecting the orders on my project list. It wasn't until I went on vacation that I realized that I really do need that break once a week. I do my best to get my customers' orders out as quickly as possible, but if I don't sit down and crochet something that feels more like "fun" than "work" I'm going to get burnt out. And I don't ever want that to happen. So that's that... I crochet for ME (personal projects, pre-made items for my shop, or things for friends) on Saturdays & my customers get my attention Sunday-Friday. :) That's fair, right? :)
