Two Hours a day!

It is a quiet month for my sockart business! Spring orders have been filled and shipped to the stores, my ETSY site is full with a fresh selection for people to order . . . but it's quiet. And it should be. It's back to school September! That means that most people are into the routines and schedules of the fall. 

So what do I do in the meantime?

Two hours a day. That's what I do.

Two hours is enough to slowly build up my sock animal product so that when the busy season starts again, I'm ready! 

Within two hours I can do one of the following tasks:

Or . . . put all the good, ready to use, basic colours that I use regularly into a box (and throw out the ones that I'll never use).

Or . . . tidy my storage shelves in the hallway. Since the supplies are so colourful, I try to keep everything in clear plastic bins (thank you Canadian Tire sales!), white file boxes and label them with a similar look. This way as you walk by, it is fairly uniform and tidy.

Since I share this hallway space with the family, I try to keep it looking pleasant and stress-free (while still functional for my needs). And, the more tidy things are, the more motivated I feel to create something! (It's like when you clear the counter, and put the dishes away, you suddenly want to bake cookies!)

Ever wondered about starting a craft? a project? But thought, "I just don't have time!" 

Try 2 hours a day . . It adds up!
