HELLO WORLD!!!! I’m back. I know that it has been a long time since my last post. I just needed to take a break. I was exhausted and in need of a time out. With being a mom of 3, a wife and a new blogger–life was a little hectic. I wanted to make sure that I was posting something worth while on a regular basis (weekly to start). It became a little overwhelming. I was having some really late nights; which in turn led to late mornings. ¡No es bueno en absoluto!
That told me that it was time for a little break. Time to re-focus. So, I did. I was nervous though. I thought that I would lose some viewers. But I see I actually gained a few more. Thank you for that 🙂 I realized that I need to work on my time management skills. I mean…couldn’t we all use a little help in that area?! I need to set up boundaries and create a balance between work, family and my blog. I guess it’s time to join that Planner Life! 😉
I decided to try to come up with some crafts that fit into my life. Before, I was just trying to craft and create anything. I think as a newbie blogger, you kind of have to do what fits in with your lifestyle. As you get further down that blogger road, you will be able come up with ideas to craft/create with less stress and worry. It will become easier…I hope. Now, I will take a look at the coming weeks ahead and see what bests fits.
Even though I was taking a break from the blog, I was not on break from life. My kids were actually on their Spring Break. So, when there is no school, I try to keep them occupied with craftivities! We made Papier-mâché Easter eggs. The kids had so much fun making and smashing them (mini piñata meets baseball bat)! And I also made a shaker birthday card for my wonderful husband.
Blogging this way should alleviate some of my blogging stress for now. I figure, over time this blogging thing will get easier and less stressful. I have to remember that I am still a newbie at this. As they say, Rome wasn’t built in a day.
Here are a few pictures from my “Spring Break.”
Have you had any blogging whoas or time management issues? Leave me a comment and let me know.
Until next time…Keep Crafting!

That’s awesome you did take a step back. I feel like as women (and I can’t even go there because we don’t even have kids yet!), we go above and beyond with our schedules, constantly multitasking and trying to accomplish “it all”. To the point where we burn out. We do need out own little time outs, so that’s awesome you took that time! And it looks like you accomplished a lot of stuff with you and your family. 🙂
I do swear by my paper planner, a few people laugh at it, but I rely on it like crazy (I call it my assistant). I too am new to blogging so I was grateful to read your blog and know that I’m not the only one that’s feeling a little overwhelmed.
Happy living & blogging, keep up the great work!
Thank you so much Kim! It is good to know that my lil’ ol’ blog is helping someone out in the world. You (we) are definitely NOT alone. If I need help with my planner/notebook, I know who I can call. Thanks again..and keep it up!
