It's time to re-evaluate

If I was looking for a sign I got about 10. I was bound and determined to continue working on my Etsy shop at the same pace that I had been before, while starting my new full time job. I am positive that a higher power was encouraging me to slow down with the Etsy stuff, and when I didn't pay attention to the first sign, he sent me a second, and a third, and a fourth. Well I am certainly not going to stop, but I can definitely recognize when I need to take a break. I still have all of my wonderful planners and notebooks in my Etsy shop, but I am going to stop creating new inventory and taking custom orders for a couple of weeks while I re-evaluate the direction of my business.

The most important thing for me to remember is that I loved working on projects for Obsessively Organized, but during the last couple of weeks all I have been is frustrated, it seems as though nothing has gone right. I really want to get back to that place where I enjoy what I do, and I enjoy checking my email to look for a sale.

Hopefully things will slow down a little once I get adjusted to my new work schedule and I can pick up my Obsessively Organized projects again and add to my inventory before the holiday season. I will definitely keep you all posted! I so enjoy having a space to share my little dramas!


  1. I'm with you, sister. I don't have a full time job that I go to, but I work for my husband out of our home office and I have such a hard time keeping up with everything. I was also getting so frustrated yesterday and told myself to just calm down, make what I can make and enjoy. No quotas or goals that I have to achieve. Good luck to you.

  2. Sometimes we all need a little help realizing we're taking on too much. Good luck with the juggle!
