pluggin' away.

Photobucket
after typing up that list i remembered several other things that need added, but i'll resist and hope they float around up there in the 'ol noggin a few days longer without me forgetting. wishful thinking, that is.

believe it or not, in the midst of all that freelance work, i still work outside the home 5 hours a day. but, such is the life of a freelance artist. a huge lull between assignments, and then a down pour. happens every december as everyone gears up for the big trade show of the year. i'm used to it at this point. the season wouldn't feel the same without all the deadlines.

i THRIVE on deadlines. and to-do lists. i'm weird that way.

"i, tania, do solemnly swear to take time to breathe, and relax, and not stress, and be present, AND do fun art projects with the kids whenever they ask, while whittling away at the List."

anywho.
speaking of to-do lists.......and deadlines.........i gotta scoot and get marking a few things off. happy wednesday!

  5. I find such satisfaction in checking things off my to do list. Not sure why, especially when sometimes it takes me as long to write it on my list as it does to do it! :) ~ML

  8. Thanks so much for the giveaways! It's our slow season right now; I'm an accountant. Most of our work is done in the first 5 months of the year. So I'm taking it easy now, but will be getting ready to make all of my "to do" lists very soon.

  9. Great giveaway...Slowing things down and enjoying this holiday with my family is one of my goals this year. Sometimes we get so wrapped up in everything else and forget the important stuff.

  13. I definitely agree with the list thing! I make LOTS of lists! I don't put as much scrapbook time in as I do with deadlines either! I LOVE online weekend crops! I can get more done in one weekend than in two months! LOL :)

  16. So now it is official, you are just way more motivated than I am :) I am impressed and in awe! Also glad to see that your kids and family are your first priority. That is so easy to forget since they move to the side more easily and calmly than outside things. You are doing GREAT!
