I created the layout below for my April Layout Sketch and forgot to share it. I have to admit to doing a lot of creating that just doesn’t seem to make it onto my blog lately. Apart from creating and teaching several classes each week, I have also been making quite a few sets of invitations. I don’t know where I am finding the time, I just am.
I was surprised to hear recently that Julia Morris doesn’t burn up her energy trying to find a work/life balance, she just gets on with it and lives. I am glad to hear that I’m not the only one who is of the same belief that there is no perfect balance between work and life, just priorities and meeting my own needs along the way. I feel that as long as I am spending enough quality time with my husband and children, and of course occasionally on my own that it will all be good. Anything that doesn’t get done probably doesn’t need to be done anyway. I prioritise my work time and run my business my way, and it works very well. I also do several community activities that I just fit in as needed too. All in all I just make it work.
Whilst I am here I thought I would also announce the winners of my April Layout Sketch Challenge. Each of these ladies will receive a lovely pack of ribbons donated by Scrapbook Fantasies.
