Things have just been really…really… busy lately. Like, crazy busy. I feel like my head barely hits the pillow before the alarm goes off again and I have to get up, put on some concealer, and start the day. There are work duties and mom duties and “oh &$*@ I forgot to do_____!” duties.
Does this sound like you?
We all have grown up responsibilities. But no one ever tells you when its ok to play and do things you want to do… like create beautiful things and sew and quilt.
This elusive idea of what the ‘mom blogs’ call “balance” in life is something that I’ve been in pursuit of for a while now…
Four years ago… I was laughing at the idea of sewing anything more complicated than a pillowcase. Not too long after, I was upgrading my machine to one that can handle more quilting, and now I have so many beautiful (if I do say so myself) quilts under my belt.
How do you get from point A to point B without losing yourself or your sanity or your family/job?
First thing… and I will be blatantly honest with you here… the whole “mom-balance” idea is a bunch of pish-posh oodle-noodle bologna! Throw that theory out the window and kiss it goodbye. *gasp*
If you have a to-do list that is all crossed off and finished and you are struggling with how to fill your free time… Panic... You’ve probably forgotten something. Something …big.
The world feels like it is moving at a furious pace and I’m just barely able to keep up.
…Until I stumbled upon an idea that has changed everything for me.
I want to share it with you because… girls... the world needs more of this and less of the “she seems to have it all together, why can’t I do it?” mentality.
So what is a girl to do, you ask?
HOW did I finally do it??
How is a girl supposed to get ANYTHING done in the midst of the insanity that is just day to day life?
Throw in the towel and give up? – No.
Abandon everything else in pursuit of self-made happiness? – No.
Read all the books out there on time management and try harder? – Nope again. But you still might learn something if you do.
Get up earlier to savor the quiet house? – Heavens, no no NO. (On a side note, what is a quiet house?)
If this speaks to you and is something, you need more of in your life… I’m giving you the little break that you need to find a way to make sewing & quilting work into your life.
This is my gift to you.
I wrote it all down and created a little e-book just for you. It’s simple. It’s short, and it has actionable steps you can start today.
There is nothing that I hated more than to have someone promise me answers of a glorious mascara and pearls motherhood advice only to read it and end up back in my leggings and flip flops because it wasn’t something I could actually do.
If you want to sew one tiny baby quilt for a friend or if you want to make heirloom quilts for all of your children… here is how you fit it in!
Submit the form below to download the e-book. Give it a read and let me know what you think? If you have any questions or need a little extra pep talk… feel free to contact me.
I have total faith in the beautiful things that you can create! 🙂
