In case you haven’t been keeping up with me, I am ECSTATIC about launching my Maker Mamas online shop!
What is this?
It’s a collection of beautiful handmade and designed artwork and products by creative mamas.
It’s always been a dream for this site to create a community for art moms. I was a pretty active painter before I had kids. It was something that brought me a lot of joy.
After the birth of my first child, time spent on painting was less. Then when my second son was born, my creative pursuits ceased altogether.
Becoming a mother is such a life-changing experience. And it was hard for me to lose that creative part of my life that was so strong before.
This is why I turned to writing. It was therapeutic for me, just like creating visual art was.
So I emphasize with artistic mothers who may have lost their creative oomph. I’m hoping my Maker Mamas shop gives them a reason to get back to their creative pursuits. And I’ve found myself making time in my day to create some art too, even if it’s just a quick doodle.
The first Maker Mama product that landed in my hands were beautiful, one-of-a-kind stationary. A few sets were created with wax and the colors are so vibrant. There are also several sets of watercolor “thank you” notes that are so lovely.
I am so excited to bring you these wonderfully made products and have you meet the Maker Mamas! If you want to stay in touch on when the shop will be launching, fill out the contact form below and subscribe to my email list.
