A glimpse into the life of a working stay-at-home-mom/student/entrepreneur.

Laptop ✔
Notebook ✔
Cold coffee because I got distracted ✔
Burnt pop tarts because #ThatHappens
Cough drops because one kid is sick ✔
And Catalogs, kids' homework for parents (they're starting new material), copy of #TheWizardsOfOnce that oldest saw and HAD to have this weekend, cat ears headband (modeled by Kilo in previous photo from last night), #wixsticks the kids are STILL playing with, #pawpatrol cup because what household with a child in kindergarten or younger doesnt?, and blankets scattered about because Dorothy, we're not in south Georgia anymore. ✔

Trying my hand at custom ornaments, bringing back my creative self one project at a time. #babysteps #creativerelease #ijustwanttomakethings

When you pick something different but she creates her own look 👀! #issa1stgrader #docmartens #catandjackfortarget#Ijustwanttomakethings

This brought me so much joy today💚 #inmicrofashion #pictureday #ijustwanttomakethings

Seriously loving all the clothing out there right now supporting creativity. This girl had the cutest dress embroidered #ijustwanttomakethings around the pockets. I had another girl today that told me she wears her art shirt on Thursdays. You go girl #artclass #elementaryart #artteachersofinstagram #targetiskillingit

Finally I have started to put new listings on #etsy.

I have been prioritizing weaving rather than administrative works. (aka procrastination.. haha..) Well, now is the time and I have many more items to go!
I can do it!

Relapse.

It's wrinkly, but finished! #alphabet #embroidery @molliemakes

I just have to make something everyday, and then I feel okay.

All from scratch dark chocolate cake and butter creme frosting cooling on deck.

Breaking in my new art space with something brand new for me! Not only have I never really done landscapes before, I also tried a new medium (kind of) -
-
Left two landscapes are done with gouache. I’ve only had a very small amount of experience with gouache, and I’m not sure I really love it. Maybe it’s because I have a cheap brand or maybe I’m just awful 😂 -
-
Right two are done with my FAVORITE acrylic paints, the liquitex basics. I feel like I was able to get the contrast and brightness the way I wanted with these. -
-
I’d like to continue to try and work with gouache because I’ve seen so many people use them and they’re gorgeous. -
-
We’ll see!! Hope you enjoy!! -

Here’s a question for my fellow online sellers: What do you do when you know you have a bunch of items to photograph and list, but all you want to do is keep making things🙃?

Trying desperately to figure out my serger. The Glühwein is helping. 😅 I think two of my tension knobs are not working correctly, so I took the front off and fiddled with them. I hope I'm close because I'm running out of scrap fabric!

An improv quilted panel just got new life as a bag, now for a handle....

Having a little fun with simple wooden ornaments and metal leafing. What do you think?

Days like today make me miss theatre. I spent less than an hour and $20 on a costume that I will later repurpose. I designed a makeup/hair look to accompany it and I'm breaking out my glue gun to make a hair piece. #hireme #givemeyourinsurance #Ijustwanttomakethings #theatre 🎭💄🔨
