It's 3am so of course I'm making lip balm!


It is 3 am here in Japan and I just made some lip balm, my famous (ok...famous with friends and some family members) green Japanese beauty mask and some bath salts. You might ask why I would do this at 3 am and my answer would be .....because I've been getting antsy.

See....I've been working hard on my 2 businesses and at my job and I've had little time for other things. Somedays I really am a chicken running around without a head (side note....had fun explaining that one to my hubby....now he just looks at me when I'm stressed and says "chicken....no head?"LOL) . Reading? What's that? Making stuff...hmmm....one day I kept thinking but then.....

I've been feeling just off.....antsy....energy to burn and walking and bouncing on my mini trampoline hasn't helped. I have always made things....but lately it has all gone to the wayside. I make lists of things I would like to make and then never get around to doing it. And perhaps I have put too much of an emphasis on making things to sell and so I just haven't made anything. But tonight (or rather early in the morning) I got the urge to make these items and I have to say it feels damn good!! I also can feel that energy has been toned down a bit. I guess what I have learned is that I need to make time to make things....even if I never sell them because it is just a part of me.

Sometimes 3 am is the best time to get work done. :) How neat that you make your own lip balm.

Hi Lay Hoon-I did thanks!

Melanie-you are so right....I love nights!! I love making my own skin products...lip balm, face scrub, body butter etc. I considered selling it but it just never felt right...I think it would take the fun out of it for me!

I've found that early morning is a great time to be creative and productive! I'm so bad about doing useful things at 'normal times', hehe. Aw, that 'chicken, no head' thing is so cute! ^_^

I sympathize with your need to create. I do the same all the time. Having grand plans of things I want to make for my Etsy shop, and even though I have never really bothered marketing and subsequently haven't sold anything, it is an essential element of me just to create.
