OM :: The Shout Outs

om [one moment] meet upOM is *one moment* and is a meetup designed to notice & relish a moment in everyday life. The meetup idea was created by Linda at her blog, a la mode stuff.

If you’d like to participate in OM, just click the button and you’ll be taken to Linda’s post explaining it all. After you read this post, of course ;)

Creating & working from home is a blessing for me. I truly appreciate being able to make this thing I call RiverDog Prints work as a creative business for me and my family.

There are good days and bad days that go along with this blessing and the good days far outweigh the bad. I do spend a lot of time working alone. I bounce ideas and plans off my husband and friends when I can. But for the most part, I sit alone in a room and get it done.

Recently, I did a custom order for a fellow Etsian — a set of small thank you notes for her shop, BeeWitchinStitchin. The shop owner, Kathy, had seen the post about me on Candy’s blog, Candied Fabrics. Kathy and I worked together to create some sweet little notes for her customers.

So, my moment came when Kathy wrote about me on her blog. I know the time it takes to write a post and for both Kathy and Candy to write about little ol’ me is humbling and heart-warming. As I sit alone in my office, my moment is to take a moment and enjoy your company.

    The card turned out great!! It is so wonderful to make these connections with new customers and bloggers.

    I agree that the good outweighs the bad when it comes to working at home. It does get lonely and I’m grateful to Twitter and my blog buddies for keeping me sane!

    Have a great weekend!

    Oh yes. Preserving my sanity is one of the greatest things about y’all.

    And I might write this every week, but thank you, Linda, for driving this meet up. It’s a great exercise for me each week!
