Working from home comes with unique challenges.  How do you stay focused and productive?  So many (sometimes worthy) distractions, begging for your attention.  I love being able to work from home, but it does require a certain degree of prioritizing, even self control.  Of course, having your own space is a must, but sometimes the distractions still call to you.  The dog needs to go out.  Who is at the door?  The kids just got home from school!  I could go on and on.

Starting my day with a list of things I hope to accomplish is a big motivator.  Then, at the end of the day, I can see my productivity.  Creative people, aka Beaders, know the feeling of designing a piece of art, then sitting back with the sheer satisfaction that it came from your head!  That is the best feeling in the world.  Whether you are a full time designer or hobbyist, the emotion is the same.

I do find it helps to take a few breaks here and there, maybe even a walk.  For me, distractions are just part of my day, I know they will be there, I know I have to not get frustrated by them.  We love what we do so very much and feel so blessed to have all of our Auntie's Beaders!
