Teacher. When I grow up I want to be a teacher. This is one of my favorite reasons for loving being a Mom. You are automatically a teacher! From the first second they open their eyes as new born babes swaddled in warm afterbirth (sorry, not for the queesy stomaches I guess!) To learning how to walk. To asking questions about how the world works. To learning about heaven (sometimes the hard way, like when their lil precious sister goes early). Kids make the best students, dontchya think? They are full of awe and wonder and joy for all the little things.

I often wonder how different our lives would be if we could live and see everything around us this way. If I could go back in time I would wish to see and learn everything for the very first time.
(though let’s be honest, sometimes learning is very hard.)
“Three Eggs!!!!! This is what she tells me every single time we do chicken chores together. (regardless of the number of eggs) She yells and shouts, then laughs and giggles. I might try this at the market next time I find my favorite veggie in season and on sale. Can you even imagine the looks I would get?
This year has been one with a steep learning curve for me. Letting go (of most of retail) was scary but ended up being a beautiful thing. There is no question that the more you have, the more you have to give. I am finally listening to my body, my heart, and taking care of me so that I’ve got more left over to give. (I’m not even talking about money or time, just emotional energy).
Recently I started holding a small class in my home with just a few local women. This has been an amazing experience! It is so awesome to be working with others who love love working with their hands and aren’t afraid to tackle something that they (may) not know yet how to do. It has also taught me so much and given me some much needed confidence! I can’t wait to get our big workshop done so we can welcome even more people into our home!
Thanks to them I’ve had the confidence to put my soap dispenser course online. It’s been a blast shooting and loading the videos and teaching all we’ve learned on making mason jar soap dispensers.
I am so excited to also have the honor to teach and inspire through the Homebound Magazine. I love creating stories with beautiful pictures, but more then anything else I LOVE teaching and inspiring people to try something new! This magazine will be chock full of tutorials and I hope you will try some of them when it comes out! (In less then a week!!)
