I need more hours in the day!

Whilst I'm feeling tired I wanted to see if any other crafters out there are feeling the same as me.....

I love making jewellery and selling it online, but I wish I had more time to dedicate to it!

I work full time office hours in London and commute everyday from Birmingham (Long, boring story as to why, I'll save it for another day!) So I don't get home 'til after 7 o'clock in the evening, after eating tea I'll only have a few hours to squeeze in some crafting before I have to go to bed to get up and do it all over again the next day! I do love my job and am hoping to move closer to home fairly soon, but I find it frustrating that I can't spend as much time on my hobby as I want to!

I'd love to get some beading done on the train, but anyone on the Birmingham-Euston train will know that there's not a lot of elbow room!

I also want to spend time with my my gorgeous, loving and supportive boyfriend who is quickly running out of patience as he keeps stepping on beads and findings. My jewellery is a hobby more than a source of income and I couldn't afford to give up my job to make jewellery full time, thought it's nice to have a back up plan!

I spend a lot of time at the weekend creating new things but not as much as I'd like to; I'd love to churn out new things everyday to keep my Etsy shop fresh and my Facebook Page buzzing but it's just not possible with my current work-life balance!

Does anyone else feel the same and how do you deal with it?? Your wisdom is welcome....

Your tired FunkyPinks friend
