"I want to cultivate the seed that was placed in me until the last small twig has grown." Kathe Kollwitz.
What seems like a lifetime ago, I worked in the human resource field. Then a sequence of events, one of which included the birth of my son, made it seem impossible to continue on that path. We had a mortgage, bills, and the responsibilities of a child so I did go back for a while but all the time dreaming, wishing, wanting a different lifestyle. I also had the creative burn that could not be extinguished by my daily duties. So I started planning, cultivating if you will, a different path. A different life. One in which I could be with my children all day, and also continue to explore my creative pursuits to see where they would lead me.
Things started to happen. I am now home full time with my TWO beautiful children. I have opened two Etsy shops. In my most full and busy of days I find time to be inspired, to plan, and to work with my hands for a while. Throughout these bustling days I feel my dreams unfolding and growing into reality partially due to hard work and care, and partially with help from forces unknown working little miracles everyday.
