I'm Kelly, proud member of team OML. I'm excited to delve back into my journalism roots to bring you a streeter-style Question of the Week, with answers straight from the source that matters most: your fellow makers.
This exclusive OML blog feature will tackle your questions by asking and sharing the opinions of other beloved creatives in the maker community. QOTW topics will range on anything and everything from why coffee is an OML-must have, to how we as makers balance our entrepreneurial, social and personal lives.
This week I asked three talented moms to share their insight on finding the balance between being a maker, and being a parent.
As Mother's Day 2016 came and went, I noticed so many of you wonderful makers celebrating your roles as parents and cherishing your little ones. We at OML enjoyed honoring and admiring hardworking moms throughout Mother's Day weekend through Instagram, but couldn't help to ask: what's the day to day of balancing orders, social media, and pruning the shopfront with the wee ones like?
Here's what Jessica of @the.hook.nook, Nichole of @naturally_nora_crochet, and Charissa of @joyfulfour had to say about maker life and motherhood:
