Not Another Mothers Day Sale ... Coolest Mom Ever!

Not Another Mothers Day Sale ... Coolest Mom Ever!

May 08, 2019

Yesterday, someone came into my brick and mortar shop in Kensington, MD ... she stopped when she saw the Mothers Day cards. “Do you have a card for a first-time mother?” Her daughter in law was due any minute.

I saw how emotional she was when thinking about it -- it sent a zing of pre-gramma excitement through me. Or maybe I just remembered being a first-time mother myself -- it seems like yesterday. The hair on my arms stood on end!

Sadly, I didn’t have a card like that, but the whole thing got me to thinking about motherhood. And how many decisions I’ve made because I was a mother -- including my decision to be a jewelry designer.

Of course … I love being a jewelry designer! But it also allowed me to work with a flexible schedule from home, so that I could be there for my kids. This was a big part of it. I wanted to be there when they got back from school and to be available to have fun and make arts and crafts and take them places. And I did! I know I was very lucky to be able to make this choice.

This year has been a huge year of changes for me personally and professionally. As a mom, it’s been a year full of “lasts”. Last Back to School Night. Last soccer match. This week I went to the last Sports Awards Night. My youngest is off to college in the fall.

It's so sad!

But this morning I turned the key to my beautiful new jewelry studio! So many possibilities ... not only for my kids but for me!

(funny what makes the move -- this 'Coolest Mom Ever' has become part of the studio -- as has the Memorial Union Terrace Chair print next to it!)

Happy Mothers Day!!


 

*If you’re in the area on Mother’s Day -- I will be at Gala Artisan Jewelry & Gifts from 11 am - 2 pm -- meeting folks and debuting a lot of new jewelry inside, while doing my favorite thing -- making kids crafts in the parking lot.

When I unpacked these bead looms I felt a jolt of excitement like I was 10 years old. Looking at the loom and the beads brought me back to my childhood. Seeing them reminded me of the hope there is in beginning a project
