Welcome to Sew She Shed
I have dreamed of a tiny home for so many years now. I used to tell my children as they grow up and move on about their lives they will have to come find me lost in the mountains somewhere, most likely by foot, in my tiny, self sustaining, peace bringing home. This dream was that of a single mom who was envisioning those empty nest days that will come and living a life of solitude…but today that same dream does not exist fully.
I am no longer a single parent. I fell in love with a man that needs space to move around and also with our families combined we have 5 children! A tiny home would not work for us as a couple, nor will it work with all the grandchildren we hope some day to have! (Our kids range in age of 8 to 13 right now, so I am really thinking far in the future!)
What’s the next best thing to a tiny home to live in? Why, a tiny space to CREATE in! Taking the creative space out of the home is going to open the doors for me to treat my love of making with my hands as an opportunity to help support our family from home. I don’t know about you, but when I try to create inside the home I am often distracted. Every chore that I could be doing and feeling guilty about just sitting around making pretty things. I end up halfway through projects before tucking them aside to vacuum, do the dishes and wash the laundry. With no dedicated space for crafting the creative mess spews forth everywhere and becomes its own challenge to wrangle.
Sew She Shed will be a place for me to encourage a creative life, inspire other creative minds, and share my personal musings with the world around me. I am a lover of making, nature, sounds to please the ear, and the ability to bring happiness to anyone willing to know me.
Will you join me in the Shed?
