Winding Down

I always said that I'd never stop making my jewelry just because I had a baby. Then again I said a lot of things before I had a baby. :)

I've been hanging on to my past pre-baby life. This Sunday at church I realized that I needed to let go of that past and move forward. Sometimes God makes things really obvious.

So as soon as hubby makes room for me in the garage, my jewelry supplies are going to be packed up and moved out. It's very sad to me but my priorities have definitely shifted in the last 9 months. I'm reconnecting with church and God. My job requires a lot of time and energy right now.

My Etsy shop is still open with pieces that are already created but any made to order items are no longer listed. My mom is kind of bummed and is trying to get me to make some pieces for her before I put things away.

What will the future bring? No idea. Only God knows.

For now, I'll try to answer his calling to be the best mother that I can and to learn as much as I can about my new job. I'll still blog every once in awhile but even that needs to take a back seat. If there is anything that you like from the shop grab it now. Once things expire I'll probably wait to relist them for a long time.

Being a mom is a very worthy venture. :) I couldn't have done it at ALL without God's help. It's just too hard sometimes, and sometimes the worry and problems can be very overwhelming. God got me through some really rough times.

I understand your decision. Things change. But you never know, you may return to your art someday.

Your baby is so cute. :) Have fun!

Thanks Rebecca! I just think that he's been trying to get me to give this up for awhile and I've been quite disobedient and stubborn. I'm sure there are other things he wants me to do (or not do) that I'm ignoring too. :)
