It’s been a little over a week since I left my day job and I’m still working to settle into a routine. I wrote more during my first week as a freelance writer than I did during a typical work week in the office. So far it’s both challenging and wonderful to be crafting a new professional life for myself while spending my days at home with my girls.
I didn’t get much organizing done last week. So, today I started excavating the dining room and returning the last several weeks worth of project supplies to the shelves where they belong. Instead of packing away a half-finished rag rug, I decided to finish it this afternoon and put it to use. Amelia kept “testing it out” when I was trying to get a photo of it under the filtered evening sun. I waited to get a clear shot of the rug, only to find that I preferred the image of Amelia racing across it.
You can read the story I wrote about an the inspiring Beerhorst artist family and my related weekly art & craft column today on my GR Press blog. I recorded a podcast interview with the family, too. So stay tuned for that.
