To say that I’m excited for my maker’s yearbook would be a huge understatement!

For the past 15 years since I first began creating and selling online, I’ve been running my business by revolving it, and myself, around raising and homeschooling 5 kids. This next year, it’s all about switching the focus onto me as the creator, and my business planning. After 28 years of being kid focused, I’m very ready for this next phase.

I bought the maker’s year book to help me stay tuned into that new direction.

It’s not that raising five kids and homeschooling set me off course either. It was my life. I loved it and I’d do it all again in a minute! My kids, my husband, homeschooling and my home have always been the driving force behind this business. The inspiration in fact! Indeed, the reason the business first came about was as I researched reusables because my first daughter was soon becoming a teen.

No, I do not begrudge these past years of revolving the business or myself around any of it in any way. The business allowed me to be mom, to be home, right where I desire to be. I’m so grateful.

All of it is exactly what has brought me here to this place, right here, right now.

I love this place.

But the kids are grown now. My youngest, our twins, turn 20 this weekend. A new season is beginning. A season of refocus and renewal. And I can’t wait!
