I am slowly figuring out who I am, as a mom. Through my experiences am slowing finding myself getting comfortable in that title of "Mom".
I've always been a crafter, have always made gifts, cards, even the wrapping paper itself and I have always famously looked at things and said, "I can make that." And I really do make them. Until my son was born. When he was born I lost all interest in crafting. POOF! All interest was GONE. I couldn't even look at my crafting materials. I got rid of almost all of my crafting items. We're talking scrapbooking supplies, jewelry making supplies, fabric, 1/2 completed projects, and on and on. I was done. Done. I didn't even want to look at the supplies anymore. But during one of my first days at MOPS last Fall, the MOPS craft coordinators presented the first craft of the semester and I completed my first craft. All of my old craftiness came flooding back into me. And sometime that same month, I finally stepped back into a Michaels craft store and it filled me with excitement and happiness. I couldn't be more grateful. And now, no one can stop me!
I've kept my own private family blog since I found out I was pregnant, almost 5 years ago, and now I hope you'll join me on my adventures in crafting and my journey to finding me, as a mom, in this new blog. Hence, the title: "Project: Mommie"
