It's always my goal to balance being a mom with being a designer. And they do go hand in hand for sure. Olive has a really great eye for bead-placement-on-caps. She actually designed these two:
The red one: I was planning on randomly placing all the beads but she started lining them up. What a great idea, kid!
The white one: This one was never finished, but it was for Christmas, and she put all the beads in a shape of a tree. Brilliant!
I haven't been designing new caps, just filling orders for my existing designs and so this week, when she saw me back in the studio, she was SO excited. 'Oh Mommy, can we bead hats? Please can we bead hats?'
Come 2pm everyday, I pick her up from school and literally and mentally close the door on my work, let my tired brain rest, and enjoy being a mama.
