I seem to have them in spades. Especially when it comes to putting off working on anything “artsy.”
But I know of several moms, (two of which I will mention in this post) that somehow
find make the time to work on their stuff!
A couple of days ago we had a guest blogger, Bethany showcase some of her amazing work. Bethany is a super talented seamstress AND mommy. I am constantly impressed with how quickly she turns out her projects!! (Bethany, I must learn your secret) She just made this dress for Valentine’s Day…
On her blog, she talks about how much of a struggle she had finishing this dress (on top of being sick) but she finished it! And it turned out great! You can see Bethany’s creations at Lil’ Bit & Nan and at the Sew Weekly.
Another mom I would like to mention is Michelle. I met Michelle when I was living in Florida last year. She is an amazing artist and fellow illustrator! I was in awe when I went to her house and saw all of her work. Then she goes on to tell me she has an Etsy shop and she had several projects going at once. I was like, “How on earth do you find the time??” Michelle has two little (busy) boys. I think she told me she doesn’t get as much sleep as she should. Hah!
You really must pay a visit to her Etsy page, Calamari Studio – so you can see her work up close. You can also get there by clicking on the pictures above.
I am so very impressed with these two ladies. They have helped fuel my motivation to get back on the artist track! I keep telling myself, “If they can do it, I can too!”
