Step 2: Take a Breather!⠀
Are you feeling overwhelmed? Are you juggling more things than an octopus could easily manage? Are you starting every day more exhausted than the day before? ⠀
It's ok friend. Take a deep breath, and then another. You have permission to take time to just BE. ⠀
Is there something that is calling to you? A new opportunity that you want to just jump into with both feet? That shiny, magical thing is calling to you and you just can't wait to get started, right? Take 3 seconds, and just breathe. Make sure that the new thing is in alignment with who you are, that it doesn't make you go against those core values that we discovered yesterday. ⠀
Get clear about your intentions and your focus. Just Breathe.⠀
What are you doing to take a breather today? Maybe you need to sit down and enjoy a cup of tea? Maybe you need to sit and journal for an hour? Maybe you just need to spend the whole afternoon in the sunshine (I promise you, the next sunny day, that's what I'm doing! Nothing feels my heart like time spent in the sun!)⠀
Share in the comments how you are taking a breath today! ⠀

I don’t often knit the same thing twice....but sometimes the perfect skein in the perfectly named color comes along, and, well, I just can’t help myself! This skein of @thefiberseed Sprout Sock Down the Rabbit Hole has just got to become a Golden Afternoon shawl, it’s just too perfect, isn’t it? And since it is more fun to knit with friends, I’m inviting you to my impromptu Mad Tea ☕️Party! It is super informal, will be tons of fun, and I’ve even got gifts for guests, starting with a special 50% off coupon code! Use the code AllMadHere to get Golden Afternoon for 50% off, today through Monday, 5.20, we’ll start knitting on Monday (or today if you would like, this is a super informal tea party, we’re all mad here after all!), and the party will last until mid July, most likely.
Get your copy of the pattern (link is in my profile), and be sure to post your progress on IG with #goldenafternoonparty and #jessicaandersondesigns and I’ll randomly be choosing guests for gifts!
(The original sample is knit in @mcmullinfiberco and it makes an equally lovely shawl, so if you have a skein if the Alice club yarn, this would also be a fun pattern choice!) #jessicaandersondesigns#knitlove #knittersofinstagram #knit#knitted #thefiberseed#sproutsockyarn#aliceinwonderland#wonderlandknits#disneylife#emptycoffeecup#knitshawl #madteaparty#couponcode#patternsale

No matter how many times I’ve tried to disconnect them, my life and my business are just connected- this is especially true in this season where I am juggling my business between taking care of a house full of kids and trying to get settled in a new place. It isn’t a surprise that when you add a cross-country move, loosing a loved one, new jobs, and just life in general that things got a little bumpy and it was hard to find the joy in my business that kept me going.
It took some time (and let’s be honest, some days it still takes time!), it required some REST (something so hard for us to realize some days!), and the support of some amazing friends, but I’ve found that spark of JOY 🌟 back in my life- both my creative life and daily life! (And I just love how @kellienussphotography captured that moment of JOY in this picture!) I love helping others find that JOY too and that is one of the major reasons that I embarked on my new adventure @yarnconfidential
Have you lost your spark? Has your creative job become anything but that- creative? Maybe you are searching for your WHY you do this every day, maybe you are just overwhelmed and worn out. Has show season taken it’s toll on you physically and emotionally, and you just don’t know how to keep up the momentum any more? ⠀
You need your SPARK back! ⠀

What is bringing you JOY in your Business or your Life today? ⠀I’d love for you share in the comments! (Pattern is an upcoming design in @twistedowlfiberstudio )
Imagine stripes, dots, zigzags, speckles, swirls- fantastic patterns.....
Put them all together and what do you have? Anybody else thinking yarn 🧶????? (And now I kind of want to see coral reef inspired yarn colorways!) I’m excited about this week’s study of Coral Reefs (but also super thankful that school is about ready to wrap up and we can enjoy some summer days, or at least snuggle with a good book if this rain never stops....this desert girl is not used to all this water falling from the sky!) Yarn is @malabrigoyarn and it’s a new design I’m working up!

This sweet baby is 5 today 😭 How in the world did that happen? It honestly really does all go by in a flash, and suddenly you aren’t a sleep deprived mom of a newborn anymore, you are simply exhausted from keeping up with your five year old....
This little boy has brought so much joy into our lives, from the moment he was laughed into this world (seriously, his birth was a fun party, filled with laughter and love ❤️) to everyday just filling our lives to the fullest, 💖 love you so much!!
And wow! Has he inspired some of my favorite knits of all times, starting with the Rainbow 🌈 Baby awe designed JUST for him! 💕💕 #jessicaandersondesigns#knittersofinstagram#momlife#babyknits#knitsforkids#rainbowknitting#rainbowbaby#thisboy#sothisisfive#nowwearefive
It’s the dreaded second Wednesday of the month, have you turned Turtle 🐢? I certainly hope you haven’t (because I can only imagine how hard it would be to try to knit upside down 🤣) To celebrate the second Wednesday of the month, I’ve got an appropriately themed pattern: Topsy-Turvy
It’s a fun cowlette designed for one skein of @tippytreeyarns Sparkle Sock, in the Cousin Topsy colorway, of course! I love this fun one skein projects and this Sparkle Sock is just lovely (and Tiffany has a special going on right now, so be sure to check out her shop!) And to celebrate the Second Wednesday of the month, you can grab this pattern for $2 off regular price, no coupon code needed, today (5.8) through Friday (5.10), so what are you waiting for? Go get the pattern, grab some needles and start knitting. I also recommend either watching or reading Mary Poppins Returns while knitting!
Which version did you like better? The movie or the book?

The sun ☀️ is shining and I’ve got a new pattern coming out tomorrow, things are definitely looking UP!
But watch out, tomorrow is the second Wednesday of the Month, when things turn Turtle 🐢 (yep, we kind of love watching Mary Poppins around here 🤣) I just can’t tell you how GOOD it is to feel the sunshine though, this desert gal has missed it so much, and needed to see a glimmer of hope in the dark storm clouds. This design definitely gives you that in a skein of yarn, that’s for sure! It’s got a blend of nice, easy-going knit, with a pinch of Topsy Turvy for good measure. Grab a skein of @tippytreeyarns Sparkle Sock (seriously, if you haven’t tried this base yet, what are you waiting for? It is Amazing 💖), in the Cousin Topsy color and you will be all set for some fun knitting.
Pattern will be released tomorrow, so be sure to watch my feed so you don’t miss my release special 🎉

меня постоянно кидает от «сделаю киношную обработку с фильтрами и шумами в 5 приложениях сразу» до «оставлю без фильтров»🤪
а что выбираете вы? или главное, что бы фото выглядело круто?☀️

Быть свободным заебись! Когда тебя не держит ни работа, ни учеба и нет плотного графика🐾
Нашли удачные билеты-на следующий день улетели в Сочи☀️
Хожу, пью пиво и греюсь на солнце🍻
Но 18-го уже будем нажимать с @kiskisnotdead на фестивале «Вечно XVII» в Москве, пау🔥

настало то время, когда я могу выкладывать просто красивые фото, даже в 9 утра и не париться за их стиль и сочетание в профиле 😂
к счастью, @falkova_tm красивыми фото меня обеспечила, а вот о чем писать я не знаю 🤔
о чем хотите посты?🐱
