Busy busy busy | LOVELY LITTLE RANTS

Busy busy busy


Happy Friday! Can someone PLEASE remind me NOT to overbook myself? Because I literally do that like probably every possible opportunity. This was my schedule this week:

Monday- Work on pallet sign orders, go to day job, grocery shopping, come home and work on boutique signs.
Tuesday: School in the morning, go to day job, come home and work on signs
Wednesday: Work 8-5 at day job, go straight to nanny afterwords, come home  around 10pm, work on boutique signs.
Thursday-  School in the morning, go to day job, go straight to nanny, rush to help J set up for the boutique, go home and make last minute signs for boutique.
Friday-Work 8-5 and then cry tears of joy when the weekend hits. Train a new employee to help with signs (omg!)
Saturday- Work on sign orders all day and then go take down boutique at night. 
Sunday- Die.
I mean church and then probably more signs and then cry a little.

You guys holy cow my life right now. I am SO grateful for Framed (the pallet signs) getting SO freaking busy but sometimes I feel like I can't keep up!! Each month it just gets busier and busier which is a blessing but also super stressful ya know?  I'm super excited to hire my best friend who will be making them from Utah. I know it will be SOOOO helpful!! I've been thinking about hiring someone for a while but it scares me! I am just a perfectionist on these things and I would rather just make them myself than hire someone haha whyyyy do I do that?! But I know Shaney will do great! She is so awesome to want to make signs for me!!
Also, thank heavens for Jason, Thursday there was NO way I could set up the boutique. No way on this earth. He took his free time to set it up and oh my gosh I love him for it. 

The boutique is today and tomorrow so if you're an Arizona native hop on down there and snag up some pretty things! There are 21 other great vendors, too!
Oh and there's an Idaho sign in that mix so please buy it. Actually, you can just have it for free. Someone ordered an Idaho sign and kept "coming to pick it up" whenever I wasn't home. (before I had the etsy shop or asked people to pay in advance) So I just have an Idaho sign that I take to every boutique and hope someone from Idaho buys it. Just a little psa.

  11. LOL about the Idaho sign! People are crazy. I already told John I'm getting one of these someday. We literally buy like nothing as far as decorating goes though because every time we move nothing matches anymore so it's stupid. My goal in life is to buy a house and PAINT it. That will be the most exciting day of my life. Anyways, back to you- you're a superstar. You do more in one day than I do in a week. And you obviously have a passion for your business and what you do, and that is awesome, so pat on the back my friend. Hope you sell a lot of signs this week. And I'll make you a promise, if I ever move to Idaho, I will buy your sign. hahaha. xoxo

    1. haha seriously the person who bought it kept saying "I came over and no one was there" um because you didn't tell me you were "coming over" soooooooo. Yeah now I have it forever. K same goal, I want a house to paint and decorate as i please so that it is perfect. We rent so it's like any effort I put into it will be a waste when we move. Buy a house in AZ and help me decorate when we get one someday! PLEASE. and THANK YOU! for reals last week was just insane and crazy and Jason was like "new rule, no more over scheduling when you have a boutique" soooo yeah I like that rule. Please just take the Idaho sign hahaha xo
