Where does that leave me? It's very liberating actually. I truly loved being a Pink Designer, but I tend to have tunnel vision when I'm working with a particular company. If a product doesn't work or can't be used with the products I'm demonstrating, I disregard them. I was a demonstrator for a stamp company for about 7 years and I had the same experience. So now it's like I get a fresh start! And I enjoy so much more than papercrafting!

I think it's really important to have a creative outlet. I love to work with my hands and there are so many crafty/homey things that I enjoy that I could probably putter around all day from one thing to the other. But I have 3 children, the youngest of whom is 5, and they are my top priority. That said, I also think it's extremely important that we, as women, spend time doing things we love - preferably while spending time with other women. We need each other! Honestly, I'm really bad at that part. I love being with my friends, but it's far to easy to get so busy with life and the family's needs that you completely forget your own. My goal over the next few months is to reestablish my priorities, find peace and joy in my family and the gospel of Jesus Christ, and invest some time in making a better me.
