Yes, I need more time...thyme...
It seems like all I have time for recently are a few stamped cards here and there. Our business has picked up so much in the last few months I have been working every day where in the past I had worked a couple days a week which gave me the rest of the time to create. I never actually realized how much time I devoted to Ink Stains until I wasn't able to do so. Not that I'm complaining about the work, it's wonderful that our products are so highly regarded that we have increased our volume about 4x what it was just a year ago. We are very blessed.
I just feel like I'm letting you, my inky friends down. I've had several people unsubscribe over the last few weeks - of course I don't know why. There isn't any exit question I can ask so I'm just guessing. I'm sure (in my mind) that it's in part due to the fact I've posted mostly just stamped cards in that time frame along with a few Design Team projects for various places. Experimenting with techniques, trial and error on projects, playing with various mediums, coming up with ideas even takes up so much time not to mention photographing, writing them up and sharing them. It's overwhelming and sometimes I just can't get past that feeling to begin.
I am finally getting used to the hours so hopefully soon I'll to be able to get back to experimenting and sharing again. Until then I want to thank those of you who've stuck with me...I appreciate it and hope to reach a semblance of "normal" soon!
The above card was made using Club Scraps - Garden Shed kit paired with Memento Inks and a few colored pencils.
