This has been a week where more things were added to my to do list than were crossed off. At one point I had to pause, write each task on a sticky note and re-arrange them to know what to focus on now as opposed to tomorrow or next week. I have a thing for sticky notes.
With work opportunities opening up (more on that soon), a feeling that there is more to do than hours in the day, sometimes it helps to write a list at the end of the day titled "Done." This helps when I'm treading water instead of making forward progress. It only feels that way because in reality, I am making forward progress.
One tangible way to feel progress is to look at the impact my work is having through my Etsy shop. I thought I would share some recent feedback from my wonderful customers:
"I am thrilled with this needle organizer! Expertly constructed and darned cute, too." --Linda (Sheep Circular Knitting Needle Organizer)
"Perfect size, good quality, and great customer service!"--Kate (Boxy Tote)
"I was drooling over all of the new snack bags but unfortunately (fortunately!) all of mine are in great shape. We use them every day so I was hoping my supply would be low. Not yet. Sadly." --Heather (snack bags)
"I ordered this for a gift, she loved it." --Fran (Soap Saver Bag)
"Item shipped very quickly and is even more beautiful in person. Stitching is perfect and the lining of the bag is strong and secure. I look forward to using this. Will shop here again! Thank you!" --Sarah (snack bag)
"This is a the best bag! It keep your salad greens/herbs fresh for so much longer than anything else. I would highly recommend!" --Jamie (wet bag)
"Well-made with quality materials, including YKK zipper. Would definitely re-purchase" --Joretta (pencil case)
"Well done, presentation was excellent, sewing was perfect, can't wait to use. Pride in craftsmanship." --Heidi (felt fishing game)
Reading reviews like these, I'm feeling motivated to tackle this coming week's to-do list head-on!
