What is your time worth to you?

So, I know that I'm not the only one who struggles with there not being enough time in the day to get everything you need to get done. And I don't even have kids! What I do have is a full time job, a part-time b.cheniful job, this blog, an FB page, a husband, Bacon and Cheesecake, and well, a life. And right now I also have a bunch of craft shows--I know, you're SICK to death of hearing about it, I get it. But, I do. I'm (we're) also throwing a Halloween/Birthday party on the 29th of this month. You know, like less than 2 weeks out. I started "decorating" last night. A pretty piss-poor attempt, at that.

This is where the question comes in....and what I'm currently agonizing over. Ok, so maybe not agonizing, but conflicted. Very conflicted. I'm crafty as shit, right? Right. And I see all these awesome ideas on Pinterest and I want to do/make them all. BUT, dude, that takes time. More time than I have. Cause I have to sleep. Cause sleeping keeps you skinny, you know? Chenyways, back to the point.....It's like, ok, do I buy halloween bunting for $4 rather than spending the time making it? Sure, it's not perfect, but it's not so horrible either. And it's DONE. All I have to do is hang the damn thing. But then I feel like I'm wasting my talents. I could totally make something better, but that would take me at least an hour from start to finish, and that's if I have all the supplies on hand...I don't know...I guess I'm worth the $4, but am I just selling my soul to calm my stresses?

Big (damn I'm a whiner) Smile,

Buy the bunting. Save yourself the hour and make something really cool instead.

I struggle with this ALL the time! For me it's totally a pride thing as well - I want to be able to say "I made that" and then my friends are jealous and I get that puffed-up, happy feeling...

But, if it interferes with my sanity? Then I MAKE myself draw that line - hey there's always next year, right?

Buy the bunting and save yourself sometime.

Wouldn't you rather have less stress, I know that I would.

Buy it, you can always make an awesome Bcheniful one later without having a pressure of a deadline.
