Well .. today I am writing this post with some sadness. I have decided to step down from my spot at Maja Design. I have been on this team for 6 months now, and was Guest Designer back in December and worked with their products all of last year so I do feel like I know their papers well.
But the time came last month for me to make some changes.
My life right now is full on. There is literally no moments off, ever. My baby Sofia is now 1, sleeps less (which is great because I get out and do stuff before getting kids from school) and I do not wish to miss out on precious time with her right now because I need to scrap, or feel sick in the mornings because I stayed up late the night before scrapping. I mean, I still do , don’t get me wrong LOL but I just cannot do it as often. I basically need to leave my days free and get some scrapping done at night .
My older girls are both in school, so we all know what that is like.
Right now life for me is: Sofia full time during the day, Sofia + 2 more full time from 3:30 until 7:30 pm when they finally are asleep.
Some nights I feel like scrapping. Others not!
So changes needed to be made to find a balance.
I cannot give my creating up right now! NO WAY! This is my lifeline…
But still I needed to make things easier.
I guess you could say I started feeling this familiar thing happening in my tummy lately.. the thing where you get nervous to create things and it starts to feel not so good .. I have had these feelings before and I let them go too long before acting on them , and reached the point where I burnt out.
So I decided to lessen the load and leave Maja Design for someone who can do justice to their beautiful papers. You see, another thing making me nervous was that I felt that since the time I was asked to join the team (November of 2012, just a few months pregnant with Sofia) , my style has changed dramatically. I feel I have gone from soft, shabby, romantic to a bit of grunge, a bit of mixed media, a heck of a lot of inks, mists etc etc and I did not feel this suited the soft colours of Maja Design’s papers. I felt I was covering up the majority of the paper and for me.. when I cannot do something right I just feel very uneasy.
So with all this, here is a card I crated for my last post at Maja Design.
It is dedicated to Jenny and Marie. THANK you both so much for having me on your team this year, for reserving a spot for me a year and a half ago, and for this great opportunity!
Thank you all for all your support.
