I'm not sure how others out there in blogging land do it; manage to keep up with their daily life: family, work, hobbies, friends, blogging. If only my workplace would understand that work interferes with my art, decorating, blogging and FUN! :)
For some "porches" it seems effortless like Polly at Count Your Blessings, she home schools her children, sews, runs a eBay business, decorates (quite well I might add, she has a pink stove for Pete's sake!) and she manages to always introduce us to a lovely blog or product that is yet discovered! My hat's off to you Polly! :)
Then there's Penny at Lavender Hill Studio, how does one create such beautiful, intricate artwork such as hers and yet still have the time to visit so many blogs and make everyone, especially newbies like myself, feel so welcome in this community? My hat's off to you Penny! :)
Kim over at One Woman's Cottage Life , is redoing her ranch home into her cottage dream. She and her husband are tackling it themselves, that's it! Plus she has kids! and she's starting a new business venture. Oy vey! My hat's off to you Kim!
Jennifer (see I got her name right this time ) at Pear Street Studios , mother of three, owner of a beautiful graphic design business and again great blogging skills. My hat's off to you Jennifer!
The list could go on and on forever, so many talented women in this blogging community that I am admiring and taking lessons from. What are your secrets ladies? Do you have Mary Poppins nannies singing "a spoon full of sugar"? Do you have a wonderful spouse that does everything and lets you do your thing? Or did the "Clean House" crew just swing by before you took pictures of your beautiful homes? I gotta know! ;)
I have a feeling there is no secret trick is there, no Mary Poppins or Clean House Crew? I have a feeling it's a combination of great time management skills, drive and determination. Am I right?
My hat's off to you ladies!
p.s. but if you do have a trick please let me know, I promise I won't tell. ;)
