I didn’t want to just come up with the idea, I needed the follow through. I loved the messy printing end, but didn’t want to give up the creative design end. So I took a break to figure things out. My parents are still bitter. And I got married, and had babies and decided what I REALLY wanted to do was be Mom. But I still need to create somehow.
