How busy moms can stay organized?
Perhaps you’d like to plan your life as a working mom and keep ahead of the madness and be there for your kids at the same time?
It seems overwhelming, but it can be done easily with a few adjustments to your daily routine! And wouldn’t it feel wonderful?
Here are five recommendations to make it happen.
Use a plan to construct a schedule.
A calendar and a timetable are the most important aspect of an organised life.
I know someone who goes home with her planner every Sunday night and maps out EVERYTHING she is going to do or any event occurring in the week ahead.
And by everything, I mean literally Every aspect of her life which involves her kids, her family and her career. She maps out her schedule and timetable for the next week work. And her routine with her family. Any event she has to attend and family gatherings or family day out and finally some me time for her as well.. She scheduled everything .
No matter what happens at work, stick to your routine.
Sticking to it is the most significant aspect of making a routine. And as a working mom, I know it can be very difficult to do that.
I always ask my friends one thing: what is the main thing in your life that everything else centre’s around? What is the one thing on your schedule that is not negotiable?
Almost without exception, my friends and family respond to WORK. They say that because they report to a supervisor, and get paid for it, if job demands dictate that they do, they will compromise other activities that might be a part of their week.
Are you this? Whatever the reason you must stick to your schedule. You need to understand you can not neglect your kids and family because of your work no matter how important it is. You must carry both of these duties side by side.
Receive support. For working moms, it is important to get support when they need it.
Some moms need assistance to keep the house clean or to cook dinner or to drive the kids to school. Therefore, if you need it, get it! To help you clean or cook or drive, find someone.
It’s really all right not to do everything yourself.
If your budget and time does not involve a babysitter or a cleaning lady, work out some other way to get help. The most obvious first options in the aid department are your wife and your children. With the cooking and cleaning and the chauffeuring, they can all do it.
How to turn any image into an SVG template?
Interested in learning the easiest way to make your own SVG?
Here’s a quick tutorial on how to turn any image into an SVG format image without having to use any complicated graphics editing software.
First, a quick primer on what is an SVG… SVG stands for Scalable Vector Graphics. It is a way to store digital information about an image. Most images you see on the web and other digital devices use a bitmap or pixel based image storage format. In other words, the image is captured with information about each dot in the image.
SVG format images are part of a category of images that are vector based. Vector based images store the image as a series of paths and nodes. Most cutting machines like the Cricut and Silhouette use SVG format images because the blade on the machine needs to know what direction (or path) to cut.
To turn a bitmap based image into a vector based image, you need special conversion software tools. This is an algorithm tricky conversion because there lots of different ways to do it with varying degrees in quality. Most graphic editing software like Adobe Illustration make you manually decide on those conversion settings which makes it really difficult to use if you’re not already familiar with Illustrator.
I use a software tool called Vector Magic. With Vector Magic, you just upload your image (you can even copy and paste it in) and it automatically just converts to an SVG format for you. You can make editorial adjustments afterward if you’d like but there is a baseline conversion ready to go if that’s good enough.
Here’s an image for you to give it a try yourself. It’s a bunch of cute animal drawings I did the other day. I just took a picture of it with my phone. Try copy and paste this image into the Vector Magic interface. (Right-click on the image below, select “copy”, then head over to Vector Magic and past it into the window or just hit Ctrl+V)
After you pasted your image into the Vector Magic window, it will automatically start to convert your image:
This will take a few seconds. When the process is complete, you will see the vectorized SVG image on the right with the original on the left.
If you don’t like the automated conversion, there are a number of different adjustments you can make from the right tool panel.
After making adjustments, you can download your converted image as an SVG and then upload it to your cutting machine interface like Cricut Design Space below:
These dragonfly SVG files for Cricut are perfect to make any garden craft or insect-themed card. I like using them to make simple hole punch cards. These are versatile and easy to customize for any occasion. Of course, garden Cricut cards are great for backyard parties as well.
