I’m guest posting for Vend Raleigh today – check it out!

Some of you may know that I am lucky enough to be part of Vend Raleigh’s Illuminate planning committee. Today, I got the chance to blog over there about the absolute craziness that I put myself through to get to the conference last year, and why it’s #worthit.

To all of you how have a craft shop online, or are thinking of starting your own business (any type of business), or have started but don’t know how to take it to the next level, check out the blog post and poke around the Vend Raleigh site, the Illuminate 2014 page, event page and member directory. It’s a world of resources designed for mompreneurs.

Here’s a taste of my post. Hope you enjoy it!

I hadn’t slept more than three hours or so at a time in well over a year, I was exhausted and really didn’t think I could handle more on my plate. Despite all that, something was telling me that I needed to revitalize my small sewing business. I had started it right before I found out I was pregnant with our second baby, but the teal magnolia sat dead in the water with the occasional blog post and custom order as I took time to focus on our family. But I wanted to make it grow. I wanted to be me again, to come out of that post-baby fog and create again. “

Guest Posting at The Craft Monkey Today!

Hi there!  A little while back, my pal Heidi over at Craft Monkey decided to de-stash her craft supplies and hosted a De-Stash Bash, where a bunch of us got a mystery box of goodies and made something with it.

I ended up making this patriotic ruffle pin with interchangeable, magnetic centers.  Want to see how I did it?  Check it out here!
