Death of a Crafter

Yes, in my regular 9 to 5 world I sell opportunity. 

I would have loved to have named this post "Death of a Salesman", but unfortunately my crafty-alter-ego is what has been suffering lately.  It's funny how right when you really start to try to get involved in something new and shift your attention to help create an environment for others to succeed along with you, your own world can sort of fall apart.  Over the last year I have started to turn my life focus around on balancing my professional-bring-in-the-money side with my creative-make-and-try-to-sell-things-for-fun side.  Things had been moving right along as my professional job started to ease up and mellow-out over the last few months.  Well, suddenly this side of my life seems to have kicked in to high gear and my head has been spinning ever since!  Between projects, presentations, travel and meeting after meeting after meeting I feel the creative juices have all but run dry.  I also have severely neglected my blog and my responsibilities with my Etsy Team.  At this point, I am praying for a slow down so I can just get a little more caught up and involved again with what I consider a very fun part of my life, but I am not so sure that is going to happen any time soon.  I am writing this entry to find out if this has happened to any of the readers out there?  If so, how did you recover and gain your balance again?  I'm not ready to sack the professional life and turn creative for a living...I just really enjoy what I do professionally and I make a very good living at it.  So, I am curious how other people have brought their life back around from this situation.

Gotta get the Craft Factory going again....

Desperately Seeking...well..advice!
