I know that life gets busy and that it's all you can do sometimes just to do the daily grind: laundry, meals, errands, homework, baths, changing diapers, etc. But no matter how wild and crazy it gets, I want you to really try and take time out for you, even if it's only for 15 minutes, some "me time," "mother culture," and make something lovely and creative each day. It is so important that you do this. It will nurture your soul. I do not want you to run yourself into the ground and to only view yourself as a slave to others. When you take the time to take care of yourself, then you will have more to give to your loved ones; and you will prevent burnout at the same time. That is one of the beautiful things about being involved in The Artistic Mother's Art Group. This group helps us to learn how we can balance our life, motherhood and being artistic.
If you have not joined our group yet, we would love to have you. Go here to read all about it, and leave a comment there to join in the fun.
Most of the photographs on my blog have been wiped out. Somehow they were lost. It would be too time consuming to replace. I have placed a few pictures here just so that it will not be completely blacked out. I now blog over at Sewing With Trudy if you would like to visit and follow me there.
Welcome! I am a God loving, homeschooling mama of six, Mimi of two and sewing enthusiast. This is where I chronicle my creative adventures. I am so glad your creative journey has brought you here. As the daughter of a gifted sewist and crafter, I spent my childhood in a home brimming with paintbrushes and sewing notions. Thank you so much for making Sewing With Trudy a part of your day. Enjoy your visit.
