Stopping to take a breath…

I know there’s lots of you out there that can understand and have likely felt the same way at one point… That point when great intentions also means I’ve overcommitted. 

Sometimes just a break from the things pulling in so many directions is just the ticket and that’s exactly what this weekend is.  It’s spring break for our kiddos so I’m looking forward to a long weekend of no work, no sewing, no studio… Just me, hubs, the kids and some great friends! 

  
I thought I’d use my time off to share a few of the things that I’ve had on my plate recently.  It’s all amazing, fantastic things, which is why I just can’t ever say no, haha! (Surely someone else has can’t-say-no syndrome right?! It’s a real thing, I say so)

The studio!! We’ve started our classes! It’s been several months in the works and after moving spaces in January we are finally moving forward with the plans we had laid out.  Your can read more about it here. Plus you can take a peek into the space I work in.

Our most recent class was a girls class for spring break.  We had such a fun time and the girls did a fabulous job!! 

 
  
I’ve also been working on lots of pattern and fabric testing.  Which leads to lots of photography. 

 

 
With the more time I’ve spent behind my camera, the more I’m feeling pretty confident in my skill.  This is giving me the opportunity to form some really great relationships with other designers and businesses.  Our studio neighbor is The Opposite of Far, if you haven’t checked her out before you need to, look how awesome her masks are!! 
   
 

I met the sweet ladies of Mama Said Tees while I was at MommyCon in Chicago a few weeks ago.   Love their shirts!! Stuff like this goes so well with stuff I make for the kids. 

 

Really I can never have too many shirts like this, so it’s a good thing my good friend Julie from Chestnut Street Duds has been coming up with some awesome designs of her own. 

 

So there you have it.. A wrap up of my time lately and what keeps me so busy.  Not to mention my full time job (gotta support my fabric budget somehow!) and just being a mom. But all that said, I wouldn’t change a thing. I don’t think I know how to function when I’m not running at 110%.  It’s just who I am.  ❤️
