Girl, did I ever tell you about that time I went Pom Pom crazy?

I can't believe I didn't blog about this experience! It was such an intense time in life, lol! I laugh now, but it was pom poms all day, err'day at one point.  You can watch a quick timelapse of the process here or read on for more details!  I started off making this adorable little rug for a friend's nursery.

Home Studio Revamp

This is my current workspace y'all. You don't want to see what I was working with before, ha! As a solopreneur and mother of a terrific 2-year old, I've had to switch things up a bit to maintain the physical space I need without overwhelming the rest of the home with my stuff. My ultimate goal is to convert my garage into a super comfy home studio for escaping screaming toddlers and feeding my creative dragons. I share this picture of my current workspace for 2 reasons. Now that I've publicly declared that I'm going to hook up my workspace means...
