I am a proud card-carrying member of Girl Indie. If you haven't had the chance yet....Do so now. You won't be sorry. It is a true Celebration of and How to BE a W-A-H-M. (working at home mom). You don't have to be a mom, just a dometstic engineer. Lisa And Bobbie are the founders of this wonderful supportive and informative site. They put the glam back in the baking!
What? This isn't what you wear in the kitchen?

The reality is sometimes we sit at computers in our PJ's and slippers for hours in the morning. Coffee is our best friend, and we hardly ever get to "Do Lunch". It is hard work that is sometimes overlooked as a hobby by the rest of our family, and not always taken seriously by the 9-to- Fivers.

I know there are a lot of you creative women out there who get to work with little doggies sleeping on your feet, and for me, just being able to go out and work in the garden on a break is heaven. And of course, this is how I look: except with lighter lipstick.

Stop by Indie to meet other women just like you who love what they do and do it with their whole heart! You will be inspired and encouraged.

Hi Karen Eileen,
Thanks for this. I am going to look into it ~ it sounds wonderful and supportive too (yay!).

I too look like that picture, but my hair is naturally blond and the bow I'm wearing is cream colored ;)

Love the Marilyn photo, have never seen that one.

Okay, off to check Girl Indie out, the timing couldn't be better!

Hello there my friend! Thanks for passing on the info. and I was scrolling down your blog, missed some friends as I have not been keeping up as much. Going through some tough decisions and lack of confidence myself in many areas so I can relate. But, I do know we can get so much inspiration from fellow crafter/creative gals here on line when maybe others would not understand. I am having trouble getting motivated & that is why I join the craft swaps. I am entering into another phase due to financial pressures of life, but I want to keep crafting and have my art dream of making/selling some day, alive. Just want to encourage you to keep moving forward & check out what others are up to!!
hugs, Carol

What a joy it has been to read your blog. Brings back many memories. My first job was right down the street from the circle in Orange. An accounting office in an old house. Leichtfuss, Little, Pryor, and Co. Probably not there anymore. Love Paris To The Moon. Went to High School with Kerry's sister Kim. Thanks for the trip down memory lane!
