Stu Stu STUDIO!

Hello everyone!
I know its been forever and a day since my last post. Well I am fully enthralled in being mommy. Still absolutely loving it, but its definitely a little crazy. So lets start a quite a bit ago… since we bought our house while I was pregnant (and I mean like really pregnant by that time), everything just got kinda piled into the studio. It was sadly but necessary to be a last thought. In our old place my studio was an oh so lovely green and everything had a place of its own. Fast forward to today, and my studio is driving me up a wall. It is a bland tan color with brown trim. Yuck for the creative process to start. Then I have found the furniture that once worked for my studio just does not work in this new space. I just don’t want to be in there between the color, everything being everywhere, and a little munchkin that’s running a muck… the space is just not calling me.

Crafty Momma

Wowzers it’s been a long time since my last blog post! How to wrap up the year… New house and a wonderful baby girl named Lilly with several craft shows scattered throughout that time.
So now that things are “somewhat” settling down, Lilly is “somewhat” on a routine, this creative momma will be getting back into the studio. Well kinda back into the studio first I need to finish setting it up and then hopefully my hands will be holding a torch, wool, and heck throw in some beads and sequins too! That is of course if the lovely Lilly will agree to it. Which brings me to the point of this particular blog post, the balance of creating/being an artist and being a full time mommy (as I type as quickly and quietly as possible because I was able to sneak away from underneath her!). The princess will be 4 months soon (ok well she is four months now hahaha) so I know I still have a very big learning curve to handle and luckily I have the opportunity to make my own schedule (seriously I do not know how moms that have a 9-5 job do it! I applaud you!)… ok well that wasn’t long I will be back hopefully in a short bit, this crafting mommy is being beckoned!
