One of my online friends recently wrote about how she balances her Work At Home time and her job as a Mom. It is a great read and it inspired me to share how things flow around here. Please read her post here: Laura M. Talley
Now with me, things are a bit more loosey goosey though I'm sure that is not a surprise to most of you. ;) I think that with a craft business it bleeds over into all the other parts of our lives... a LOT. I can't really work set hours, I work all through the day. Some days I only get a few minutes in between errands and other family obligations. Other days I get to work straight through until my head and eyes just cannot take one more minute.
I have a craft room but I rarely work in there. It is a lifesaver for all my supply storage though. I mainly sew on my couch, in the living room. I watch tv/movies to keep me focused so I don't get up and wander around aimlessly. The up side to working in the common space is that I am available for questions, school help, and just all around needs. The down side is exactly the same... some days I feel like the second I pick up a needle I have a kid or a dog in my face. lol
But for now, it works. I'd love to see and hear how other people are blending work and home. Did you have something you thought was going to be a perfect set up only to have it totally fail? What do you do if you have a deadline and a sick kid or other family drama that will not let you work?
