Calendar Updates ~ Won't You Join Us?

Sample Features "Butterfly Prints" which retires May 31st, 2012
You know it's been a long week when you start out to type "I've been working on the calendar" and this little voice in your head starts singing "all the live long day".. too funny!  Then all of a sudden the little voice starts it's own rendition and before long I find myself humming the song as the little voice is singing..  finishing off with just to fill those squares today..     Ha Ha Ha.  

It's all my husband's fault.  At least that's what I always tell him.  We've been making a point lately of trying to schedule more time at HOME.  Life gets to hurry up busy so often that it's no wonder that we're so tired all the time.  It wasn't a huge surprise that in the middle of my gall bladder drama that we both ended up with laryngitis and bronchitis last week.  The forced down-time was really good for us, and for me in particular.  For the first time in a very long time I chose to take some Teddybear and Pj's time and spent some down time with my hubby.  

I had also come to a realization that while many in my life were after me to slow down and take some time to smell the roses..  in my mind I already was.  I had to laugh when I started looking at it realizing that I'd take a break from posting press releases, and go do some housework, then I'd break from that and come work on my blog, and round and round it went. 

What can I say?  When you love your "job", it doesn't FEEL like work..  but even so, the 16-20 hour days take their toll on you after a while.  My big realization came in the middle of our down-time recovery..   and I have to admit I felt a little foolish that it hadn't dawned on me sooner.  

So the goal for this week is continue to work smarter, not harder. You will notice that many of the new calendar additions are slotted for the same day each month.  This will allow people to plan ahead.  Keep in mind however, that if the day I've planned doesn't work for you and there is a day that will work better ~ Feel free to let me know.  If there is enough interest I will create a second event on an alternate day.  Better yet, gather 3 friends to join you, and I'll bring the class to you!  

Here are the latest additions to the ScrapnStamp Calendar..  More Updates to Come..
