Where did The Artful Mommy originate?

Years ago when I started sewing I began to aquire baby quilts and random crafts. I then began to make candles and they soon took over space and that was followed soon after by an interest in soaping.

I searched online for a place where crafters 'met' and found Etsy. I loved the concept since it's all creative souls meeting to sell and support one another. My shop officially openened in 2008.

As time passed I became busy with work, my family, life in general. I started homeschooling my son and working more. Time for myself seemed to vanish and I realized that it wasn't selfish to want to do my crafts - it was a necessity.

I promised myself that in 2013 it would be more for me. I would finally admit that the house didn't always have to be 'company' clean, we were allowed to have dirty clothes in the hamper and if the sink had a few dirty dishes it was perfectly normal though they should go into the dishwasher as soon as possible.

So here I am in May of 2013. We're five months into the year and I've made my first batch of soap and have two more batches being plotted. I guess better late than never is a good motto and with warmer weather it will be easier to soap since little ones will be outside in the yard rather than running through the house since the kitchen is off limits to EVERYONE while I'm makign soap.

What will this year bring for The Artful Mommy? I honestly have no idea but I look forward to finding out and seeing what awesome soaps I come up with over the remainder of the year.

All items are hand/machine sewn by me and come from a smoke-free home. I DO have 2 miniature schnauzers, however; they do not shed all over(i brush/trim them myself every few weeks). I myself have allergies to cats & dogs but thankfully they don't bother me. I have some fish as well but they pretty much stay in their tank and keep to themselves.
