What do I do all day? – I was asked this the other day, and thought about it – how do I spend the majority of my time, once the domestic chores are completed, or more likely ignored? I have to admit to the privilege of being able to dictate how I spend the majority of my time once I have discharged the responsibilities of housekeeper, wife, mother and dog walker. And I love it. I love the space of being allowed to meander amongst the various pathways of my mind and the plethora of material available on the internet – a real benefit for a curious mind. I love the opportunity to create my versions of hand made books and to sometimes have the privilege of collaboration with a commission.
Once upon a time I felt somewhat guilty for not having a more productive endeavour, but no longer. Now I revel in the opportunity to sometimes spend time doing what I like, how I want to.
Time – its the most precious commodity we have, so watch where you invest yours. And when someone asks me now, I tell them how it is, without apology. Took me a while, but I got there.
If you want to see more of my creative endeavours, then pop in to my Etsy shop or my Society 6 store page. I would love to have your feedback too.
Enjoy your day, your week, your life.

I have a similar lifestyle, and I love it too. It’s nice to see someone else write about this- most people just talk about how busy they are, too busy to do what they enjoy.
I agree!! I have been too anxious about living the life I chose – I am letting go of that anxiety. I am so lucky to have a supportive husband – but then I support him too!
true, if you’re not busy and producitve then you are wasting time? Not in my book, we need more time fro reflection, not less! Good to hear from you!
