Moms: They always know best!

A few years ago I found myself drowning in a sea of “have-tos,” never having any time for my “want-tos.” I remember thinking, “I should have a t-shirt made that says ‘Never Bored since 2007.'” LOL! However, this was somewhat my own fault. Recently, I opened a fortune cookie that read, “The busiest people have the most time.” Truer words were never spoken! As long as I had a minute, an hour, or an open afternoon, I would pencil in a “have-to,” leaving no room for the “want-tos.” What’s even more pathetic is that as a business owner, I controlled my schedule! What was I doing to myself?! All my “have-tos” were burning me out and leading me down a road that I didn’t want to be on. Thanks to my mother who always advised me to “Nip it in the bud,” that’s exactly what I decided to do; I started making time for the “want-tos!” Over a year later, I can happily report that I’ve been routinely satisfying my soul with projects that I just WANT to do :) For Mother’s Day this year, I decided to make gift bags that included a “Toe tickler” plant, a candle, body scrub, homemade tea bags with Wild Orange Blossom tea from Teavana, and rooster napkins. I even made bird’s nest embellishments for the bags! And let me tell you . . . I was OH SO PLEASED with myself. hahaha! I kept running downstairs to show Nathan all the fun things I was making for our moms. Anyway, here’s a little collage of my most recent project. Hope all the moms out there felt loved and had a wonderful Mother’s Day! :)
