I did something I've never done before: I ignored daylight saving time (Spring Forward). Here's what happened: it was Saturday afternoon - I had a BIG wholesale order that I was finishing up for an amazing shop in New York City. Family was visiting while I was painting my paper cut cards, and I was informed that this weekend was "Spring Forward" (I never seem to know when it is anymore).
This weekend was the absolute worst weekend for Spring Forward to occur - I needed every hour I had to finish this order! When you're working hard on something, the last thing you need is to lose an hour of sleep. The girls are also unaware of the time change - they slept until their normal time, which around 8 AM (9 AM DST). We had grocery shopping to do, meals to cook... so I said: Nope. I am NOT losing an hour this weekend. We will pretend that Spring Forward didn't happen, and we'll lose an hour tomorrow instead.
What really ended up happening was that my husband "sprung forward" to go to work on time today (Monday), but the girls and I are still in this weird twilight zone of time. I don't know if you've ever tried to adjust small children to a time change, but it takes days to get them falling asleep, waking up, and eating at the correct times again.
It did turn out to be a very productive weekend. See those "Grow" post cards up there? I had to make 24 of them, and didn't mess up a single one - that has to be a record for me.
I can't say the same for my delicate "Happy Birthday" bunting cards - between the thin-cut card stock and paint, there are bound to be a few do-overs.
My favorite part of this order is the "Happy Happy Happy" cards - they're so fun to make!
So anyway, it's currently 3:15 PM, we all think it's 2:15 PM, and I am still not a fan of daylight saving time. Are you dealing with this where you live?
