What one word best describes your current state of mind? Why?  harried

What inspired you to begin blogging? What do you blog about? Complete this sentence: “I blog because….  I was inspired by a need to be financially and intellectually independent from my husband.

What product or service did you develop? What was your inspiration? What is next for you as a mompreneur?  I hand dye, sew and sell wool and bamboo pants for babies and toddlers. When I started cloth diapering several years ago, I loved using a combination of bamboo and wool. It’s very difficult being a non-working woman to buy natural and sustainable fabrics. I wanted to bring high quality products to the market – that were more affordable .

Next, I would like to expand my offerings. I have already expanded once by offering bamboo wipes and wool diaper liners. I would like to offer more extensive toddler and preschooler sizing, custom sizing, and mama sizes.

What current projects have you engaged and excited?  Blog projects are always exciting. I have expanded my homeschool series on my blog, and look forward to featuring other homeschool families from a wide variety of homeschool styles.

What are 5 things/items you think moms can’t do without?                                                                                                                                     1. A therapist.
2. Self respect
3. Independence
4. A great sense of humor
5. The ability to constantly learn and grow.

What is the best parenting resource you would recommend? why?  My inner woman wisdom. It won’t lead you astray. Mothers are experts on their own children. That’s all they need – and they need to realize it. Just because someone says something in a book doesn’t make it so – even if they are termed “an expert”. Women have to trust in their own innate wisdom.

What do you do in your downtime to relax?  Relax? Downtime?

What’s that?

Sleep – cause most often I am only getting 2 hours of it.

What is your favorite part about being a mom?  Everything!

I love everything about being a mother. There is nothing I don’t love.

What is a little known fact about you?  I’m terrified and eeked out by mold.

My son has to empty the moldy stuff out of the fridge. Just thinking about it gives me the heebie jeebies.

Blow your own horn – what do you want others to know about you?  I am a go getter. If I love soemthing – When I set my mind to something – I go unrelentingly towards my goal. I will never ever stop. I will not let anyone nor anything stop me.  I will achieve.
