I have had a very long absence both in the blog world and the sewing world. I have taken the last year to really focus on my family. Adding a fourth a child has been both wonderful and world shattering all at the same time if you know what I mean. It took a little while to figure out how to balance everything. I am pretty sure that I am still not doing a great job; I think I just found a happy place in the crazy. Our Etsy store is open again and I am very happy to announce that I have two new partners! Two amazing artists and friends are joining the Industrial Cottage team. Please keep watch as I will be introducting them and their products very soon.
A sneak peak from my personal collection!
I also have a whole new line of slings that will be in the store in the next few weeks. All the fabric is in; I just have to get all the sewing done! Much easier said than done with a 2 year old!
Every once in a while I find my self returning to the same blog over and over again. My computer even knows where to go.. I just start typing and like magic it finishes the words for me! I know you all have sites like that. Well recently it has been a food blog. That is pretty remarkable for me; I don't really like to cook.
I really have not found anything on this site that I have not loved. The recipes are very easy to follow, and the ingredients are not crazy off the wall things. I also love that the calories, fat, fiber, and protein is all listed for each recipe. Check it out, and have fun cooking!
I did a guest post for Sarah over at Life and Grace. She has been doing a series on how to help people in various stages of life. She asked me to write about fostering. She posted it on Wednesday Feb. 20th, and I totally forgot to mention it on my blog. I am terrible at networking! Please hop over and check out Sarah's blog. She is an amazing woman, mother, and friend!
