How are you over there, dollies? Wow, it has been almost a month since my last post - so sorry. You probably have guessed I was pretty much absorbed in the atelier, and you were right! Today will start my third week in self-employment and the past two weeks were pretty much about of course working on the main tasks for the weeks, managing time in between different tasks, and loving every minute of all these.
I hope you guys are also having a great start with 2015 because it was such a blissful one for me. To start, I am so happy to be here at home all the time with my family finally. I see my son's eyes light up (reminds me of beautiful fireworks) knowing that when he gets home from school, I'm upstairs working. Super thanks to my hubby, who encouraged me to finally take on this almost impossible venture. My parents who were so supportive of my decision despite the uncertainty, even looked into old boxes for my oldest doll, cleaned her up and wrapped her up as my Christmas gift. I felt like a kid again I almost cried when Mama said, "Ga, we have a present for you...".
'Ga, in our vernacular, is a shortened version for "Pinalangga" which means beloved. I am very grateful for so many reasons and I am hoping things will continue to be positive despite the many challenges that I expect to come my way. For those two weeks that have passed, I am now learning how to balance working here at home, while being the household goddess. LOL!
Also, in between trying to focus on the task at hand, I sneak in breathing exercises to help ease some tension especially on my back. Thanks to Kerry Burki of Handmadesuccess.com fame and her Rejuvenate+Create ebook, that I got to have some tips on to exactly rejuvenate in between creating. Kerry purposely wrote this ebook to help crafters like her and me bring out the best in ourselves. Who else could have provided the best ways to deal with our daily tasks other than a creative herself, right? Kudos to Kerry for that.
I have so much to share with you guys for the entire year (and for many years to come) so I hope you stay tuned as I can only post about them as I go. I may have pre-listed things to do, but you know me. Digressing is my other talent/curse. LOL!
But for now, I'm sharing with you one of the dolls I have added last year to my tiny but growing collection. I chose to have her because she is such an epitome of elegance.
So without further ado, please welcome this beautiful lady (that I have yet given a profile to, please bear but it should be soon), wearing an ateliernishasha (late) 2014 holidays outfit (which I didn't find the time to take photos last month as I didn't make the time to create my Christmas tree. Bummer, I know...)
But then again here she is and I hope you like her... Enjoy, you guys and see you on my next post!
