I’m busy, really, really busy. I can’t blame it on having an extra child to nurture, although if I’m honest, his arrival has been the catalyst for the reason why I’m busy as whilst on maternity leave, I experienced a shift in what really mattered in life, handed my notice in and embarked on a new adventure that would allow me to be the mum I wanted to be but still earn a living.
Yet to make this all worthwhile, I had to keep the REASON to all my changes at the core of what is keeping me busy, by not forgetting that I was doing it all for my family. Spinning plates and juggling balls pretty much sums things up, but I’m getting there. You see a few of these ‘plates’ are some pretty major birthday celebrations on the horizon which couldn’t be ignored as it makes everything I’m seem pointless, if my family are suffering then what’s the point.
Are you with me still?
I’ve talked before of the matriarch to my family, the queen bee who keeps everything ticking away and everyone else in line, my mum. At the end of the year she turns *cough* ‘sixty *cough* and along with her 2 besties who are also celebrating, they’re having a do. So when I was given a chance to review some invitations I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to take some of the stress away and let go of one of those spinning plates.
The invites came courtesy of StressFreePrint who were a pleasure to work with from the off. I can see how the appeal of having something stress free is paramount to why customers choose them for their printing needs. At a time when you’re most probably arranging, organising and stressing at the main event, be it a party or a business, having a company that’s so easy to buy from is where their selling point lies.
Through quick and polite emails, I sent my design off in pdf. With great communication and instructions each step of the way I was getting a real taste of the ‘stress-free’ ethos. Nothing was too much trouble and after a series of back and forth proofs, where my design was tweaked and amended, I received my order, packaged by Chris (great personal touch!).
You don’t have to be a design pro either as there is an option to use their artwork templates. Delivery was quick with the final email letting me know my order had been dispatched and when it should arrive. And after having a thorough look through their site and realised I could’ve ordered most of my new business stationary from them, if only I’d heard about them sooner!
So now I’m one plate less and little less stressed, I can get back to juggling the other important balls in my life.
