The Inside Scoop

One of my goals this year was to blog more. So I thought I would give you guys a little bit of an inside scoop on my creative process, lol if that's what you want to call it.

This may seem weird to some but this works for me. When I'm not on etsy during the day and I'm working on things to build up my inventory, I watch movies. It prevents me from constantly looking at the clock but gives me a way to gauge time. When I don't do this I look at the time and think wow an hour went passed already, what did I get done?

But watching a movie or starting a season of CSI or Deadliest Catch helps with that. I know that each episode is about 43 minutes. So when an episode is over I grab a snack, switch a load of laundry, or look over what else I need to do for the day. I get a lot done doing this.

Then in the evening I pop a movie and just work. You'll be surprised at how much you get done. But just a warning, you have to play something you've watched a few times. Otherwise you watch instead of work. So here are some pics of my ever growing dvd collection.

I hope to add more parts to this inside scoop to make it a series in the future.


  1. That's sounds like a great way to organize your day. I get in trouble all of the time, because I can't discuss movies we've watched because I was crocheting. LOL

  2. I leave the TV on a lot of the day. Sort of the same theory as having a movie going.

    Keeps me aware of what time it is and how much of the day I've wasted . . . I mean, errrr - how much of the day is already gone ;D

  3. Commercial breaks are so long you can get tons done. My problem is that so much of what I make requires my attention so if I'm working on that or if I'm promoting on the computer I really don't know what's happening on the program. Well, lots of them aren't all that good anyway.

  4. I love it Angela!! I think it is nice to read about the creative process a person has. Did you do the mural on your wall??

  5. Yea, I painted the tree. lol random things sometimes get painted when I'm bored.
