Well, I'm back from the gift fair (you can read my full account over on Crafting an MBA) and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't having a hard time getting back in the swing of things. It takes so much energy to prep for and exhibit at a major show. And when you combine that with the crazy snow we've had this week, I really just wanted to hibernate.

But since I always feel pressure to keep working, I didn't really take any time off. Instead, I've sort of been half-assing my way through work this week - feeling guilty about not getting enough work done AND not taking enough time off.

This has been a really great week for some things. The guest post on Design*Sponge sent a ton of traffic to Crafting an MBA, and I've been overwhelmed by all the positive feedback and kind words I've been getting. It means a lot to me that I'm creating something of value to other people.

I guess I'll end this rambling blog post by saying that hopefully I'm getting back into my regular habits. I just made myself a to-do list for tomorrow, which is a sure sign I'm feeling more motivated. And tops on that list is tracking down a copy of Cooking Light magazine - rumor has it my work is featured in the new issue!

I always have a hard time after a show too. Usually takes a couple of weeks before I feel like making anything again.

I feel the same exact way right now! Nice to hear some similar feelings. I think our snow instincts as humans are kicking in, and we just wanna stay warm and sleep. At least, that's what I'm telling myself!
