Finally a blog!

I'm excited to get this thing going finally. As some of you know, I'm a busy mom and started BusyBodies years ago in my basement (how cliché!).

It was a part-time hobby that began as I airbrushed each shirt in my college house basement and sold and gave them to family and friends. I later bought my first home and continued to pursue BusyBodies by creating the designs in the computer...again, in the basement, in my free time. Shortly after I got married and my husband and I moved into another home...finally, a bigger basement, with a real studio to work in!

Where am I going with this?

As BusyBodies grew in my spare time, I was finally able to quit my day job as designer and illustrator and work from home. But change has been slow to my website, as I now have two little ones (and another on the way!) to care for during the day.

So when I'm not doing freelance design (in my basement), and when the kids are sleeping, I plug away at BusyBodies. Sometimes in my basement studio, sometimes on my Macbook in the kitchen. Somehow, even though I no longer work outside of the home, I'm busier than ever just keeping the kids happy, fed, clean, and out of trouble!

What's in store for the BusyBodies blog?

I keep meeting awesome people and have some great stories I plan to blog about here. I have a huge "t0-do" list because all of you keep requesting new designs! So as I get these new designs uploaded, I'll post them here. As coupon codes become available, I'll share sales and deals here. As new features get added to the website, I'll post them here. As new products become available, I'll post about them here. And, if any of you have questions about BusyBodies, the designs, the website, the products, or how I do things, I can answer questions here, too.

Phwew! Is that enough for ya? If you're like me and don't want one more website to bookmark, simply join us on Facebook, and blog entries, coupons and sales will be featured there as well.

In this down economy, I'm grateful that BusyBodies continues to help pay my bills and support my family. Thanks for stopping by!
