In Other Words… Stationery, Travel, and All Else that Matters
I like adventures, challenges, and am addicted to the feeling of accomplishment. I enjoy learning as well as creating. I like taking on new things and pleasantly surprising myself with the outcomes.
I enjoy being social. I make time for my friends and have no issues driving an hour and a half away for dinner with a good friend. I like to travel and see the sights.
I take on way too much. I confess… I over commit myself.
You probably have seen that I am posting less and less on this blog. When I first started, I got 2 to 3 posts up a week. Then it went down to 2 posts. And now I have dropped to 1 to 2 posts a week. Last week I had NO posts.
Why?! Over commitment.
This year I have really been trying to push my creative limits. I’ve taken on new projects and started to take graphic design and writing classes on campus. I am getting tons of orders for embossed and calligraphy stationery – as well as new orders for printed stationery. On top of all this, I have a backlog of personal projects that I want to take on and I am super excited to jump right in.
I started off this year with new plans and ambitions for Paper, Planes and Pinot. Now, 2 months in, I realize that I may have spread myself a bit thin. Between keeping up what I have going on, taking on new projects, and adding classes to the mix, there are just not enough hours in the day. So, the other week I finally sat down and asked myself what my goals were. What are my priorities?
The answers I came out with are SUPER EXCITING. Listing out everything I wanted to accomplish definitely reinvigorated me and got me pumped to share some great creative projects with you. Unfortunately, this exercise had one sad outcome – I would need to put a hiatus on this blog.
When starting this blog, I did not realize how much of a time commitment writing would be. Honestly – I thought it would take maybe half an hour to write an entry and post it. Let me tell you, writing each post takes about 3 hours for me. Then add in the time that one of my friends takes to edit each post because I am not the best writer technically speaking (hence the writing classes). Now this may seem like a small portion of the day, but there are times that I wish that I had these hours to work on my creative projects.
So while I am sad to be putting a hiatus on blogging, I am SUPER excited to amp up on my creative projects. Don’t worry – I will be back in the blogosphere… SPOILER: One of my creative projects is to REVAMP my blog.
Don’t fret – we can still keep in touch! Follow me on Instagram at @kayepioquinto. I will be posting my work there. If you are worried that you will have a void on Fridays when I do not post my weekly reads find me on Pinterest using my gmail account – I will be posting fun reads I find to Pinterest on the reg! I am still definitely working on stationery projects, so if you want to put in an order shoot me an email at email@example.com.
Lastly, thank you all for your continued support and love! I will be back soon… with AMAZING stuff to share!
