Back in the Studio after Baby

Just had a baby? Yup my second daughter, a little girl born July 23. The first daughter is now almost 2.5 years old.

Trying to get back to the studio? Oh yes! It is has taken a month but I am BACK! And it feels great!!!
Not sure how many shows you can handle this season with a new baby? Totally. I have turned down a few and taken a few that I am nervous about getting enough work together for as well as making work to satisfy the galleries requests.
Welcome to days when there are never enough hours for making or sleeping!!!

There are many of us at Boston Handmade who are artist and mothers. Some of us including myself have just had a baby and are still making our work and trying to keep up. It is a multi-tasking juggling act of a life right now but it is worth it to have a wonderful family and to continue working in a medium I love. Sometimes I just want to pat myself on the back for finishing the smallest pieces because I know how much work it took me just to get into the studio in the first place. So here is a peek at my newest pieces in progress.

The next show I will be at is the Marblehead Farmer's Market on Sat. Sept 26th from 9-12.

  1. I am one of those Boston Handmade members with a new baby (he's 13 days old today!) and hearing about you getting back into the studio gives me hope :) Thanks for writing this post and good luck on your shows this year!
