I've fallen off the face of the earth!!

But no worries, I finally found my way back up to civilization :) I have been busy this week doing a lot of organizing, scheduling and working ahead to so that I can try to find a better balance between my work and family. Right now I spend waaaaay more time working than with family and that needs to change! I have finally realised that as much as I would love to do everything on my own (and the fact that I hate asking for help!) I simply can't. There just is not enough hours in the day to be a business owner/post office runner/ secretary/school bus/child care provider/artist/illustrator/wife/mother/domestic goddess/cook/pet sitter etc. So I put together a list of things that could easily be done by someone else and brought up the idea to the Trendsetters. These wonderful group of ladies stepped up without hesitation and within a few hours I had all of the jobs taken over! I can't even tell you how much of a relief it is to have some of my work load taken off my hands. So I would like to send out a huge THANK YOU to my wonderful Trendsetters! Not only are you ladies the most talented stampers, but you have big hearts too!

I have some very exciting things planned for TSG with a big
announcement coming on Friday so keep an eye out for that ;)

So now that I was able to get a ton of stuff done this week thanks to my little elves ;), I actually had some time over the last couple of days to stamp! To make up for my absence on the blog lately, I have scheduled a whole week of cards to share with you! I absolutely love the cards that I have created and I think that my mojo has finally made a return with the plans to stick around :) I hope that you will come back every day this week to see my newest inky creations! In the meantime, make sure you hop on over to the TSG Blog where you have the chance to win one of the Trendsetter's fabulous cards!!!!

Jessica, I am glad that you found some relief. I don't have a family and I have trouble balancing everything. So go for you for asking for help.

I wanted to tell you Friday at the chat that I think you selected some amazing Trendsetters. I am so looking forward to seeing upcoming designs.

I also look forward to seeing your cards this week and your announcement.

Have a great week!

LOL Jessica! I wonder what your annual salary would be!! I had the same problems, and like you, hated to ask for help. Finally did, it was wonderful. I have been current for the last three years. Mostly because I learned to say "NO". Balancing life is hard enough, but add a husband, kids,& a job, I don't think even Superman could do it!
Keep up the good work!...
