Crafty Moms: Ellia of Green Bean Baby


I read a lot of craft blogs each day and I always wondered how these crafty moms could create such amazingly beautiful work while also caring for small children. Ellie of Green Bean Baby is Super Crafty Mom to me with her recent 3:55am post giving the play-by-play of how she completed her client work order for 20 custom invitations while caring for her little boy and baby girl. She’s an inspiration!

Here’s Ellia’s advice for crafty moms:

The only thing I can say is never to be shy to ask for help. I know my husband needs his sleep too but so do I. So if I wake him up in the middle of the night for help, I wont feel bad. It’s a part of teamwork. Besides, he can fall asleep in a nano-second, while it takes me longer, so he can in the end get more minutes of sleep than me. :) If i didnt have Ramel to help around, I dont think I would have the energy or the creativity to craft AT ALL!

Thanks Ellia. You can read her post “How Do I do It?” on her blog Green Bean Baby here. – Link.
