How do you guys manage your time to create your products? I know that lots of you still have a day job. I have to manage my schedule around nap times and after bed times and in a pinch during Dora the Explorer. Thank godness for On Demand.

What works best for you guys to get things done?

Whenever I can. Sometimes when I can't sleep I work on something and sometimes they tur out great.

My kids are all in school so that definitely gives me more time during the day. But, we also milk cows and I have a home to take care of and cooking, etc. I usually work on creating from 11- 3:30 with a break for lunch w/hubby on most weekdays.

I work from home for my job so I've had to create a list of 'to-dos'...otherwise I'd spend all day browsing etsy ;)

My husband and I just moved to Virginia to take care of his mom so I am still trying to get a schedule down. I would like to see how other people fit their creativity into their schedule.

I work PT and so I have days set aside that I spend in the studio. I have had less time selling online this summer with shows and markets however so that part I have not figured out yet.
I am expecting a little one in a few months so we will see what happens then.

I come home from my day job, eat dinner and start leather working! How much I do depends on the day, but I do a little something almost every day. On my days off from my day job I'll often work all day. I love leather work so most of it's not really "work" to me! I also don't really have a life - LOL.
