“I like having control over all of it. I do my own accounting and book keeping. I appreciate being organized now more than I ever did, just so I can schedule the time to do all the things that I want, and I can make it feasible and can budget things. Having all that stuff squared away makes it easy to wear this many hats. I know I’m going to be doing my job this amount of time every week, I can be 100% in my job, I don’t answer personal emails, when I’m there, I’m there, and when I go home, I know I’ll be wearing my handmade hat or my artist hat, which really depends on what’s due next. It’s definitely organized chaos, but the thing about it is I’m not going home to fill out Excel spreadsheets or collect data, I get to make art and paint and sew. It balances out all the stress of doing commercial design.
