A Monday tradition where I share what I’m making, reading, learning about, listening to, and exploring this week.
Lately, I've been struggling with understanding how to properly work from home with a baby. I can, and I do, but am nagged by some guilt and worry that I'm harming R in some way. It's such a strange position to be in- a digital minimalist by nature, raising a screen-free child, yet running an online business. What exactly was I thinking?
Ahhh...am nothing but a contradiction, which I guess (and hope) is completely human. Anyhow, I came across this article by Janet Lansbury of the RIE technique, and it immediately put my heart at ease. It's such a relief to know that it's completely fine to work at home alongside my little one.
I also listened to this podcast episode by on ditching the mom guilt which was awesome.
I loved reading this article about birds, naps, and how the two things combined can be pretty risky.
It might be a little too early for this, but this is too cute for me to care. Just take a look at these adorable cardboard Gingerbread houses and tell me you don't want to make one right now.
And I love the idea for these kid's art journals from the Artful Parent. This is going in my Ideas notebook for activities for R when she’s a bit older.
In one of my last posts, I talked about R's upcoming birthday, and I just came across this gorgeous DIY doll bassinet that I want to make for her. I'm already making her a doll, and this would be the perfect addition.
What do you think about this necklace? I'm getting kind of tired of color-blocked stuff, but I still like this design a lot.
And take a look at this gorgeous apartment. I love almost everything about it, especially the colors. But the TV could definitely go.
This week I’m reading Made to Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive While Others Die. They say it’s an unofficial companion to Malcolm Gladwell’s The Tipping Point, which I haven’t read but have heard tons about.
Okay, now you tell me what your week looks like in the comments below, because the whole point behind this new series is so we can inspire each other to grow and learn and do, so share away :)
