The clock just keeps on ticking away!


August already?! Wow! I don’t even know where my summer went!?
Yes, there are still a few weeks of summer left, but the CNE (Canadian National Exhibition) opened yesterday, which also marks the end of summer. When the CNE closes, it’s time for the kids to go back to school and fall will be on it’s way.

I haven’t really started working on any new product for the OOAK show yet, but I should get started ASAP :S
It will be my 3rd year doing the Christmas show, so I should know well enough what the preparation process is like…it gets messy, and I get STRESSED out!

It’s been rather difficult organizing my time between work and trying to get the images for my children’s book completed, and now I’m adding on the task of getting new product ready for the show in November.
*SIGH*…So many ideas, so many things to do…sometimes I don’t know what to focus on when I have a free moment! 

As of this moment, I’m focusing on the images for the book I’ve been trying to finish for the past 3 years! (D’oh!!!) I’m halfway through with the illustrations (note to self: should’ve started with the 12 months of the year instead of doing the 26 letters of the alphabet! Yes, I WAS a little too ambitious!), but in order to meet my personal deadline of getting everything done by the end of September, I really need to stick to my schedule. 
That can be difficult, especially when it’s summertime and the sun is shining and your friends are calling you to join in on the fun (*pout*), or sometimes when I get home from work, I’m so tired I just want to veg out on the couch and not do anything for the remainder of my day! 

I just want to make sure everything gets checked off my list, and gets completed.

Well, in saying that I guess I should end this and get to work!
