Momma’s Going Back To Work

Staying at home with kids vs going back to work is a hard decision for moms.  I know. If you've been with me for awhile, you'll remember about this time last year, I took a temporary full time position working outside the home.  Well, it's inching up to that time again!  Hard to believe. The thought of leaving the boys with a sitter this time is a bit easier than it was last year.  I realized it wasn't that bad and that they did enjoy having other kids {her kids} to play with during the time they were out of school.  Knowing that it was a TEMPORARY position was really what got me through and what is going to get me through this year as well.  I LOVED the fact that I got to get up, get … [Read more...]

Other People's Wisdom and Skills – A New Series

During my travels with my temporary real job, I have been maximizing my driving time with listening to podcasts and webinars that will help me with several aspects of my handmade business.  There are times where I've been in the car for 6 hours during the day {no joke} and grew very tired of listening to the radio.  So, I turn on my iPad, put in my earphones, listen and learn ... oh, and drive. I recently got in to listening to podcasts and webinars since I got my iPad for Christmas {I love that it's so portable!!}.  What I've done is downloaded podcasts to the iPod {in my iPad} from iTunes.  There are a TON of FREE podcasts out there!!  Podcasts on so many different topics from 'how to … [Read more...]
