so... there are some really wonderful things about being able to create Small Threads. Drawing the designs really stretches my creative limbs, sewing them is an amazing outlet for me and the feedback I get from customers, directly affects my self-esteem. I've been super bummed lately. My boys have taken up every second of my days and I'm so exhausted that I can't get anything done at night. How do you all manage with 4 kids? I love them and all, don't get me wrong, but holy cow!!! If I'm not feeding someone, I'm changing someone, mediating for some of them while helping the other with his homework, while tying one's shoes and comforting the other. It's endless and fulfilling and stressful and joy-filled and everything in between. So help me, dangit! I'm going to find some me time, some sewing time.
