anastasiamika So my list of home updates that I wanted to accomplish this summer maybe got one or two things crossed off, so maybe this fall will be more successful. These books are motivation enough. 2w

anastasiamika I do love a spontaneous Monday date day with @jimmymika. And it looks like Henry can't wait to get his hands on that crepe. 3w
  •   mysightbook Looks yummy! 3w
  •   hellojazzie Looks gigantic! I must have this! 3w
  •   katyaport You should have popped by the office to say hi :-) 3w
  •   anastasiamika @katyaport don't even know where your office is. Maybe some day we'll pop by with some coffee. :) 3w
  •   katyaport *gasp* - I feel like you've been there before, but it was probably Tanya. Next time you're in downtown let me know. I wouldn't mind seeing you in the middle of the work day. Would be a treat! 3w
  •   lesleyzellers That looks amazing!! 3w

anastasiamika I may or may not be selling this vintage-inspired four-drawer organizer. Would anyone be interested in it? If yes, I'll list it tomorrow via my IG shop: @anastasiamarieshop 3w

anastasiamika We're starting our day rather late today. Daddy let mama sleep in and boy, did that feel good! I'm now enjoying my breakfast at one o'clock in the afternoon: butter on a cheese bagel and fresh local fruits. 3w

anastasiamika Looking back at photos of my old workroom in our first place and I'm surprised at how much my new set up looks just like the previous one. I guess my plans for something new didn't quite come to pass. I guess I must have liked my old set up enough to repeat it. Almost ready to share photos of it. #anastasiamariecards // photo by @angelashae_ 3w

anastasiamika The perks of having my sis @tzhereb finally graduate from nursing school? Now that she doesn't have studying on her mind, we can enjoy this peach crumble that she now has time to make. 4w

anastasiamika Sometimes I love having all these things front and center on my desk; other times, I think it just looks cluttered. Darn you, Pinterest. Always making me second guess what I like. 4w

anastasiamika I've pretty much taken the bulk of July off from social media. I have a long long long list of things I want to accomplish this summer but that just isn't happening. For example, these poor succulents have been waiting since the beginning of June to get planted into my coffee table centerpiece that I have planned. Being a mama to Henry is a beautiful thing, but I do miss a lot of things that I just can't find the time to do right now. I miss blogging, coming up with new products for the shop, watching a late night movie, soaking in the tub for more than 10mins, and so on. Hey mamas, how long did it take you guys to get back into gear after your first baby was born? Any tips? 1mon
  •   anastasiamika @imazh @adriennc that's good to know! 1mon
  •   anastasiamika @lifemadecreations yes, my hubby tells me that all the time. Thanks for the encouragement! 1mon
  •   anastasiamika @casiafletcher I'm lucky if I get two each day! Most of the time I work when my hubs comes home from work. That's not ideal so we hope to work it out soon! 1mon
  •   casiafletcher @anastasiamika yeah I say I'll do that but after 5pm I'm exhausted. Mornings during one of her naps seems to only work. 1mon
  •   adriennc As this topic is near and dear to my heart I just want to share one more thing with you @anastasiamika. In your profile you wrote: "designer, crafter, wife, mama" In that order. Don't forget that. You have to put YOURSELF first. Just tiny steps, each day. Little pleasures. You being fulfilled is valid and worthy in its own right. You can't put it aside until kids are "older". Or everyone will suffer. You will find a way! :) 1mon
  •   tgusenkov Make time for crafts just be flexible and "interruptable" :) 1mon
  •   anastasiamika @tgusenkov interruptable for sure! 😛 1mon
  •   joyceeduyao I feel you! My son is already 4yo and I still am not able to go to work. Finding a helper to look after him is just too hard :( Nonetheless, I think my being stay-at-home mom is still worth it. He's able to read and write (a bit) now. 1mon

anastasiamika Took a nap alongside my little guy. Now I'm content to just watch him sleep on. Who cares about my to-do list, right? #henrymika 2mon
