I have been sewing like a mad woman the last few days....really, like a mad woman.  This has resulted in my 8 year old watching more tv today than I would like to admit...

it is okay though because I love it.  I think that is a good thing for your children to see- their momma, working hard at something that she loves to do.  I always tell my family that one day, we will look back at the days when our kitchen was overtaken by my etsy business, and remember those days fondly.  I know that I will.  Someday I will have a studio, filled with beautiful fabrics being made into wonderful things, but by then my kids will be bigger and I will be older (and wiser of course!!) So, right now, I am happy in my tiny kitchen/studio, sewing the night away, while my babies and husband (and dog and cat and fish) sleep peacefully.

Thank goodness for the cheap coffee we have in our cupboard.  And for the sexy husband who makes it for me in the morning :)

  1. I know that feeling well, but what a relief it is to finally set to work at a dream...working until your dreams are reality!
