Back to blogging with how I mange it all!!

Well it has been a very long time since my last post and I am hoping that I will be able to maintain a regular post for you all.
I love to spend time myself reading other blog's and feel very limited with what you can write in your status on FB.

It has been a very busy start to 2011 for me, Mum of 2 children, working a full time job and running my own business.
I am often asked how do I manage to work full time and run a successful business so I have decided that I will let you all know how I try and do it in this post:)

I must say that I am a very lucky girl. I have a husband who does so much around the house including all the washing and cleaning. My parents live next door and our in-laws aren't to far away so you can imagine we get a lot of support from them.
We are looking at employing our 4th Au Pair as our children's Nanny left us just over a week ago. I don't like my children to be in full time childcare so find this the best option.

I have a passion for my day job, an Implant Product Specialist for an Australian Dental Company. Yes thats right I actually enjoy dentistry, I don't think many people would say that!! This job see's me visiting many clinicians all over Australia, I'm even off to NZ in February to visit some clinicians over there.
I'm a Princess business is normally done when the children are in bed. Late nights sewing is the norm and would normally wrap up at around 1pm. Again I get a lot of support here with my 2 best friends helping me out and another girlfriend in Melbourne who does a wonderful job! I even get my younger brother behind the sewing machine and cutting out patterns for me!!

2011 will be a busy year for I'm a Princess. We have just become part of the Young Australian Designers Market that will see us set up in Sydney's Paddington every 2nd and 3rd Saturday, Poppyseed markets at various locations and dates throughout the year and some Mathilda's Markets in Canberra, Adelaide and Sydney.

Hopefully we will launch our website shortly, a lot of work goes into the design and set up, I didn't realise the extent and work load for what is needed. I am lucky as my older brother is a computer whiz and has taken on this task, even though he is on the other side of the world in the US.

I think that is enough for now:) I have given you my life run down and hopefully not bored you to tears!

I will leave you with this gorgeous photo of my children, my inspiration.

  1. Wow that is incredible. I can barely keep up with my business & 3 children let alone working full time also. Hat's off to you! Your designs are truly beautiful, especially the frill skirts that were in the Flood Appeal Auction.
    Now speaking of dentistry we have a few friends in that field. You may also know my step-father Braham Pearlman, he's a Periodontist.
    Anyway I hope the Young Designers Market is a success,
    All the best,

  2. Thanks Sam, it's lovely to get a complement especially from you;)

    I have heard a lot of your Step Father, I only used to look after clients in the Sydney CBD and recently took a new role with another company that is national based. I am sure I will meet him in my travels.

    I am sure the Young Designers Market will be a success I will share more about it tomorrow.
