So I sat down and realized that one of the most amazing things I have done in this past year is to start my own successful home based business. Never did I think last year when I sat down around this same time to start dreaming up my business that I would have been crossing the threshold of almost 200 sales less than a year later! When I think of how successful my little dream of making mobiles as artworks has been I am humbled. I am so thankful to be creating a product I am inspired to make and sending it out into the world with love so that it can be enjoyed by some many other people all around the world. I feel blessed to be able to stay home with my son and run my business from the playground and during nap times (although I am getting to the point where he is going to have to start sleeping more or I am going to need to stop sleeping at all). I love being part of a lively community of independent makers and dreamers who inspire me constantly with their commitment to filling the world with handmade goodness, not mass produced nonsense.

When I realized how lucky I am to be making a living doing what I love and raising both my family and continuing my creative endeavors, that depression started to slip away. I also got a book about holistically transforming your teeth to start giving my body the same attention that my dreams have gotten this year. So I look forward to seeing what other amazing things this year will bring and move into my mid-thirties with a hopeful outlook again.
