Friends

The last two months, maybe even three or four, everything gets really hard to handle for me.

In November my grandmother died totally unexpected. Everythng family related is pretty chaotic, my mom was hit really hard by this incident and I´m still trying to accept it. Her funeral will be at thursday.
In between came a not only christmas buissness and raging athritis in my hands, but also a fight with a friend which cost me in the end alot of money -.- (refunds are great, aren´t they?)

Main issue:
I´m now officially a freelancing artist, so my art is my job. My only income.
Thats a load of pressure for me, and I´m really bad handling stress... I feel like I´ve to proof everyone in my life that I can be successfull with this on my own.

Many people may have noticed that private projects are very rare the last time. The amount of requests, orders and commissions I get is unsolvable for me as single person. I had at least 30 requests the last two months I could´nt even answer due the lack of time, since I´m always busy crafting already payed commissions or starting ones I already agreed to do.
Its not looking better in my Etsy messages or my e-mails. I never had a clue I might get so popular or my crafts would be...

Here on dA I´ve 65 unred notes, over 2600 unanswered comments and, let me guess, maybe 80 notes I red, but never came to answer - I feel horrible about this...
Let me assure that all yet unanswered notes are ALL still opened as tabs on my notebook. Its all here, I did not forgot. But I´m one single person, and even if I really wish I could split up into four, it would not solve the trick.

:bulletgreen: How long takes it to answer a note?
Most notes I get are questions.
-How much for a pendant like this with another gem?
-How did you craft this and what did you use?
-Would you be able to craft this?

So let see. For all these questions I´ve to do research first. Mostly simple research. Looking into my supplies, checking how much I payed for a certain gemstone, calculating how long I might take to craft an item.
Sometimes I´ve to search for a website to provide info, that can take time.

:bulletred: An example:
You ask me "Where do I get polymerclay?"
-I start by a visit on your profile to check where you live. So I could send you a link to a shop in your country to order clay.
  -> You have no country displayed.
              -> I search out 3-4 websites on international bases to provide enough info. I´m a nice lady.
- That takes about 10 minutes, + 5minutes to write the message and check it for typos, since english is not my first language.
 Thats 15 minutes. For the easiest question.

And I want to answer these! Don´t missunderstand this as a rant against questions!!!
But I want to provide you with a good written answer that helps you out! That takes time - so if I don´t answer you, its not because I don´want to, its because I can´t answer so much incoming messages at instant. And I hate it to write copypasted notes/comments...
I´ve to work all day on projects that pay my bills. My notebook is on all day too. But tht does not mean I´m all day in front of my notebook.
I finish maybe 4-5 projects, be it pendants, necklaces other art, a day, while starting other orders I got the last day. So I´m usually sculpting, painting, or packing boxes...
So, the amount of work I upload here on dA is roughly 25% of all I create. Other items are directly send out, or just crafted again.
(why should I upload every single of the 48 Katara necklaces I already made??? =D)

My dear boyfriend is always pushing me to relax more, start to give myself more time. He says I´m the most horrible boss ever. And I´m my own boss:stare:
He is right. I´m the worst to myself...
I just hope I can do better with everything, and I hope I did´nt offend any of you with my inactivity!:iconcryforeverplz:
