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? 2d
  •   anastasiamika @elizabethlitovchenko God is def brilliant. I know my top role is to be a wife, a mother, and then whatever I can manage after that, but it's so hard when I love getting crafty and miss it like crazy! 2d
  •   anastasiamika @imazh @adriennc that's good to know! 2d
  •   anastasiamika @lifemadecreations yes, my hubby tells me that all the time. Thanks for the encouragement! 2d
  •   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! 2d
  •   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. 1d
  •   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! :) 22h
  •   tgusenkov Make time for crafts just be flexible and "interruptable" :) 15h
  •   anastasiamika @tgusenkov interruptable for sure! 😛 11h

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 1w

anastasiamika I've finally cleared up and reorganized my creative space. I need space for new things, so starting tomorrow, July 2nd, my first ever pop up shop will open here on IG where I'll be selling off craft + office items. Follow this special account that I set up to be the first to see what starts popping up and to be the first to snag what you like: @anastasiamarieshop! Details on how to make a purchase will be included with each item shown. 4w

anastasiamika After all these years, I finally created a "packaging station" where I will keep all my odds and ends to package up orders. I hope this will help free up the time I usually spend digging for the tape that I know I put somewhere... 4w

anastasiamika Bought these to make my creative space smell good but I think I'm more excited about using them as storage containers after they're used up. Who can resist glass with cork stoppers? 4w

anastasiamika This little guy does everything he can to make me melt. Especially when he smiles every time I walk back into the room and then gives me his big wide eyes when I whip out the camera. #henrymika #10weeks 4w

anastasiamika It's a bleak rainy day so let's do something fun like continue reorganizing my space. Henry makes my days so unpredictable that getting anything done in my office is tough to do (that rascal!), but we're slowly managing it. It's beginning to look cleaner and less cluttered and yes, I will still be having that sale I mentioned earlier. Lots of things will need a lovely home as soon as I get the time to go through everything. #anastasiamariecards 4w

anastasiamika A perk of having my sis @tzhereb finally graduate from nursing school: some pretty flowers in the home. It's been fun having her and her hubby living with us while she finished up school and I might have just shed my first tear at the thought of them moving out soon. 1mon

anastasiamika Love checking the mail and finding packages like this inside. Thank you @rick_poon and @verona725! You two are so thoughtful! Since it's addressed to all three of us, I'm going to wait for the hubby to come home from work so we can open it together. I'm bursting with curiosity! 1mon

anastasiamika Henry from two weeks ago -- right after his bath I realized his newborn clothes were getting too snug. You don't have to grow up too fast, you know, Henry. And I just can't get over those eyes. #henrymika 1mon

anastasiamika Loving this photo via @angelashae_ of the spread we did together for the first issue of @littledetailsmagazine. Even though I'm taking a break from the current issue (maternity leave), it's still exciting to see things rolling as @lianamikah tackles this one on her own. Head on over to our IG account (@littledetailsmagazine) to see how our logo got a revamp by @chelseapetaja for the summer issue and for some BTS bits. 1mon

anastasiamika Trying to think of ways to freshen up my space while Henry naps. //PS: I'm accumulating a pile of goods from my space to sell off and that's going to happen next week hopefully. Stay tuned. #anastasiamariecards 1mon

anastasiamika Yes, more often than not, I crave sugar in the mornings. On a side note, Henry is very giggly this morning and I'm thoroughly enjoying the 100 smiles he's sent my way already. It's the first morning in a while that I woke up feeling rested and ready to attack the day. Lets do this! 1mon

anastasiamika Today marks five years being married to my @jimmymika. I'm beyond blessed with this guy. He has provided for me, cared for me, admonished me, snuggled with me, cooked with me, and given me the best friend I could ever ask for. I love you @jimmymika -- and so does Henry. Thank you for giving us a wonderful life to come home to every day. // photo by @juliamanchik + @yuriymanchik 2mon
