In Continuation on the Doing Business As series: The Dingbat’s Workday

My work day is centered around the needs of my family. I have my iPhone that keeps me in contact with email and clients 24/7, however there are still kids to feed, injections to give, and time for kid play. For the most part, it works well. I check my email and do estimates, etsy orders, and accounting in the mornings while kids play. During nap-time I usually get a few jobs printed or proofs off and then when lunch time rolls around we head out to ship orders and do something fun (weather permitting, work permitting). Obviously if there’s a big deadline, a babysitter or Daddy is there to help out so 100% focus goes into product and a full workday ensues. I try to schedule out how the day or week will go depending on the amount of jobs I have going through the studio during that time, but the schedule can change due to RUSH jobs or cuts and scrapes! Once kids are in bed, I’m back on my computer generating designs, sending proofs to clients, making follow-up phone calls if they haven’t been made during the day (and because some people can’t discuss wedding details at work:) and occasionally printing as well. My hubby works late hours some evenings so I can get a lot done in the 4 hours after bedtime. I almost always pull an 8 hour workday, it’s just not typical 9-5 style!
