|Beeswax Cupcake Candle by Hudson Scout|
I started my Etsy shop when my Sweets was getting ready to go away for a few months and I knew I needed a hobby to keep me busy while he was gone. I set up our little card table in the guest room and got out my scrapbooking supplies. Then I don't really know what happened... somehow my sewing machine got dusted off and I took over the entire guest room with fabric, towels, onesies, burp cloths, ribbons and alligator clips. The room hasn't been clean since last May.
Here's a little glimpse into what is going on "behind the scenes." This is a photo on my Facebook page where I sell sensory square and sensory circle blankets:
Nice clean background, right? Here's the wide shot:
If you could zoom out you'd see even more of the mess that surrounds my typical photo shoots. I now call the guest room our play room though truly, it's more of my play room than Little Sweets'. Our guests have been relegated to our sofa sleeper.
This past year of creating has been about carving out time for me to do something that I loved doing before I became a mommy... and remembering how good that is for my soul. Which brings me back to one of my first blog posts: Life Described. In only six words.
I am definitely getting closer to finding the balance between "me" and "mommy". Maybe that means it's time to come up with a new six-word memoir.
What about you--Thinking back on this past year, can you write your own six-word memoir?
