Wowzer, what a way to end the week and the month!  Absolutely fantastic day.  One of those days that you found me grinning like a goof from ear to ear the whole entire day.  After getting kiddos off to school and daycare it was time for me to head to the shop.  Met a rather creepy new “shop pet”, aka large giant ass spider.  Check out my Instagram Stories here to see that beast!  Anyway, once I had my failed attempt at trying to shoe the creature out of the shop I got to work on carving a bowl for my upcoming pop-up shop on September 15th and 16th at Beadology in downtown Iowa City.  I am super excited about this project.  For starters I haven’t carved a bowl in what seems like forever, and I really enjoy doing them.  Secondly, I am going to be experimenting with a new way to finish these bowls, that in my head seems totally awesome.  I will report back here next week on the actual level of awesomeness! And as if that wasn’t enough super-duper fun in my day, I also had the privilege to interview 3 amazing maker moms.

Truly and sincerely I am having a blast with these maker mom interviews.  I love hearing the story of how they got started as a maker and what motivates them to be committed to the hustle of being a Mom and a maker and whatever else they may have going on in their life.  I think today has me finally deciding to go ahead and do a podcast.  I’m not sure yet when it will be ready to launch, I will work on getting a committed date soon.  This will be a new adventure for sure, but I believe it will be a fun adventure and one that most certainly will lead to building a bigger community of maker moms.

Biggest wins for the day: Shop time and working with amazing maker moms.

Opportunities for improvement: None!  Today completely kicked ass!!!
