Just finished answering interview questions for an online publication geared towards inspiring entrepreneurs! They approached me last week and I am so honored to be able to share my experiences. ❀ I will share as soon as it goes live! Now that I got that wrapped up, I am debating whether I should sew, or tidy up my messy studio, or clean my son's stinky room. My life is equal parts exciting & basic, haha.

Oops! You guys, we have another prize in the giveaway! My fault it wasn't added initially, the message got lost in the web world and just turned up so I got this cute monster plush from @themagicalmonsters all added in + more ways to enter! πŸ™Œ Link in bio!

Made a teeny tiny cute dude yesterday! β€πŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œ I am thinking about adding these tiny guys to the shop. What do you think?

Gearing up for my first day of monster making this week. πŸ™Œ I've been helping my niece Alicia get relocated to WNC & watching her two month old babe for her while she works. Family is what it is all about, and I'm so thankful for the flexibility owning my own little monster business allows me! ❀ My niece is 26 so we're close in age, but hadn't seen each other in almost 12 years, so it has been awesome to be able to spend so much time with her this week! But I've missed my studio and am eager to churn out some super cute & colorful monsters today!Β β€πŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œ

Miss Zoey Rose turned 7 months old last week! She still has no interest in eating just yet, but quite enjoys finger painting with avocado. Her favorite toys are peg dolls from @landonstoybox & a hairless troll doll she found somewhere. She refuses to spend more than 11 seconds on her tummy so I don't think she'll crawl any time soon, but she is practicing standing up all.the.time! No teeth and no sign of teeth (thank goodness because breastfeeding πŸ˜‚), but she has started babbling and saying words like dadee and bub bah and boo brrrrrrr (boober, πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚). I think we'll keep her, we kinda love her a whole lot. β€πŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œ

You guys, this was my Mother's Day gift from my kids and their dad. πŸ’›β€πŸ’š I won't lie, I cried when I opened it!! Look at how tiny Zoey Rose's handprint is against Gauge Xavier's! 😍
Happy Mother's Day to all the mamas, stepmoms, & mother figures out there today! I hope your day was special and full of love. πŸ’œ
