The highs and lows of being a #momboss

 

 

For the first time in about six months, I am starting to feel like I have gotten into a good routine of housework, homeschooling, and time in my studio.  I've even been able to do some of the not so fum work of making "Certificate of Authenticity" papers and thank you coupon codes for my next online art sale (sign up for my mailing list if you don't want to miss it).

This newfound sense of balance and order was, of course, immediately follow by a round of the stomach bug hitting two of my littles. If having three kids in three years has taught me anything it is that when the unexpected or urgent strikes, drop everything that you possible can and focus on what needs to be done that day. All those things that were dropped can and will be picked up again, and my blood pressure/stress levels will stay much lower than if I tried to keep up with my plan for the day. 

 

Sure enough, by the end of the day everyone was feeling well enough to go to Grammy's house, and I was able to have a little time in my studio before my husband came home from work. It has been a long time since I've made a 6x8" collage so it was nice to get back to working in a format that feels so comfortable.
