How adorable is this coloring by @lamardescrap? I just love the colors she used and how fun and fresh it is. Love seeing what all you share under #amytangerine on Instagram - there are over 22,000 photos!
Lately I have found myself in an interesting place where I am super busy (and happy) but slightly overwhelmed. Okay, maybe a little more than slightly. I am trying to stay focused while still infusing fun and creativity into my everyday. I'm trying to inspire and put out regular content on my YouTube channel, Instagram feed and trying to get better at Facebook. Social media feels like a full-time job alone.
So I am in a strange place and I am not sure how to describe it. I'm very happy and grateful and feeling more inspired than ever. Collaborations of all kinds keep coming my way. But I am thinking I need to pull back on a few projects and only focus my time and energy on a couple big ones for the rest of the year. There are classes on the schedule that I will be traveling to teach for and I have plenty of client scrapbooks to keep me and my team busy for the res of 2016. Yet there are opportunities that keep popping up that I want to say yes to. But I don't want to crash and burn and feel like I've let people down. Sorry to be slightly vague as there are some cool things in the works and I am not great at saying no to things, but it's all getting to be a little too much lately. I have heard good things about virtual assistants but I have no idea how to even approach that. Plus I am a people person - will I even like having someone work with me who I haven't ever met in person? I try and keep a good head on my shoulders by doing the things that energize me. I think I've found a pretty decent work out routine that I am loving which includes running a couple days a week and both yoga and Soul Cycle once a week. It can be hectic making time for these things but I know my health is a priority. Creative projects have been going well and we are loving the feedback and enthusiasm for our online brush lettering course we've worked so hard to put together.
Anyway, I just wanted to keep you all posted on what's happening around here. I'd love if I could just keep things fun and lighthearted all the time. And if I could pull off wearing skirts from the kids section more than just for this fun photo taken by Alishylishy, I would.
Would love to hear your thoughts on how you deal with feeling overwhelmed and if you have tips on staying focused!
