But someone did ask me how I have the time to make so many crafts. And then she asked if I work. I still have to get used to answering questions like that. Do you work? Do you have a job? What do you do? I'm so used to saying no, I don't work. But really I think I have a 24 hour job. I don't have a regular 9-5 job. I work all the time even in my sleep! As a parent, do you sleep so soundly that you don't wake up when you hear a noise? Ever since having children, I haven't slept well. I'm less sleep deprived now that my children are older but I wake up pretty immediately when one of my kids walks into our room for some reason or another. I can't nap during the day because I think I'm gonna oversleep and forget to pick up one my kids. Plus there is so much to do during the day between drop offs, pick ups, volunteering, running errands, doing household chores & prepping 3 meals a day everyday for five of us. Who really has time for a nap???
Now that I've added my Etsy shop and doing some craft fairs, I have more things to do & not enough time. I just wondered too at that person who asked me that question, What does she think I'm doing at this craft fair? Hello, I'm spending my Sunday at a craft fair selling my crafts. Does that not look like work? Does selling crafts not count as a job? It might seem like a fun job and in a way it is but I do differentiate between crafting for fun and crafting for work. It is different. So I have to practice answering that question, I work and I have many different jobs! On a side note, I have my kids practice answering that question too. They are instructed to say, My mom has an online store, please shop there!
And as always, I am thankful for your comments and support!
