Since as long as I can remember I have always wanted to be known for something. Clothing, Beauty industry, Creativity. So far all Im known for is being a over the top mom EXTRA AF I am always trying out new recipes for my kids healthy and sweets for the whole family. But I feel like if someone asked you who I am you would most likely say Oh the Diy’er/ Makeup hoarder, at least that’s what my cousin calls me :). Anyway as I was saying I like doing things that make me happy and usually what those things contain of are Sewing, Cooking, Diy’s, Thrift flipping items, something about creating new things or giving old items a new life makes me beyond happy in more ways than I can express. Somethings I dont always feel proud of but 80% of the time if an item is not to my liking i will seam rip it and start over I guess you can call me a perfectionist. My kids are always wanting for me to make them new plushies and clothing and I always get excited to see them wear it out. I never thought I would be so creative I always had a creative mind growing up and as a mom it’s been more fun and more of because I get to share it with my kids.
I remember when I was in middle school I would always get teased by the I dressed a little crazy and mix matching. I still be dressing out of the blue mixing patterns and colors and I feel as long as you feel comfortable then own it. Any way getting so much of track like I said I am mom I have two kids a boy and girl they are amazing and crazy but I love them so much. My son already is in school and as a stay at home mom I have a pretty busy schedule which contains of the following..
5AM- MAKE HUSBANDS WORK LUNCH AND MORNING COFFEE
5:30AM-7AM- TIDY UP HOUSE, DRINK COFFEE, GET DRESSED, WAKE UP KIDS
7AM-8AM- GETS SON READY FOR SCHOOL, FEED KIDS BREAKFAST, MAKE SONS HOME LUNCH
9AM-1PM- CLEAN HOUSE, MAKE LUNCH FOR AFTER SCHOOL, MAKE DINNER, RUN ERRANDS
1:15PM -PICK UP SON FROM SCHOOL
4PM-9PM - SERVE DINNER, CLEAN HOUSE, GET KIDS READY FOR BED, BEDTIME STORIES AND OFF TO BED
So as you can see I have a pretty busy schedule because in between those times I feel like I need a few extra hours so I can have some free time but as a mom and a wife we have to do what the family needs and what I do is when my daughter takes her naps I go on and look for ideas to recreate. I grab my laptop and go online onto different stores and/or blogs to get inspired to get out of my element and be motivated to make chores easier and have more free time to spend with my family and me time. Something you can do to stay motivated is visit stores to see new trends, check out new blogs to read in your spare time and most of all set goals to make your schedule a bit more fun and not the same old boring routine. One of my favorite things to do so I am motivated to do the things on my daily to do list is play some music or listen to some podcasts while I clean or cook, especially when I’m sewing I love having something relaxing to listen while im being creative and having some me time. One thing that is always helpful at least in my house is to always try to keep my house clean and clutter free. I’ve noticed when my home is filled with piles of clothes here and there and toys all over the house it makes me feel overwhelmed and not motivated to do anything. So something I have been trying to make a habit of is when I wake up early is do all the cleaning and tidying up before my kids wake up and enjoy my morning coffee. Once my kids are up I will get them ready for the day feed them breakfast and make my son his lunch. After school we will have lunch and tidy up together (most of the time) usually they make the mess and I get to clean up lol. Well once my hubby gets home we have dinner and while he showers I help the kids get ready for bed and try to clean up the mess from serving dinner. Doing some cleaning up at night helps me out so much in the morning. It means faster breakfast and easy clean up. I try to always have the house looking its absolute best so when I am in the mood of working on something I don’t have the worry of piles of dishes,laundry or toys on the ground. Find your way of keeping yourself stay motivated throughout the day whether it’s Crafting and Sewing like me or working out and eating healthy. Whatever your goals are be sure to always set goals for yourself and achieve them and once you do set some new ones and always stay motivated to be the best version of yourself.
I AM A CREATIVE INDIVIDUAL WHO LOVES CREATING NEW THINGS FOR MY KIDS AND MY SELF. SEEING HOW HAPPY THEY GET WHEN MOMMY HAS MADE THEM SOMETHING MAKES ME SO HAPPY.
