I'm. Back.

No really. I'm back!! I've been dealing with some pretty serious depression that peeked after Lottie was born, but I didn't ever realize that I was depressed until very recently. I struggled and struggled to overcome but I just couldn't, I didn't know what I was dealing with, and to be honest, I didn't have time to think about it! There was also a lot going on that I couldn't really discuss which made it worse. I needed a reset. And this past weekend I got it! My beautiful sister and I left 11 of our children (we took the two nursing babies with us) and flew to Baltimore for a crafting weekend with my precious friend Melissa West and 6 other sweet mamas. Our dear sweet husbands!!! Bless them! It's the first time in months (almost a year) that I've been really relaxed. Icame home so refreshed!!! I'm the old me again!! And I miss this place and feel like I can write again!! *sigh*
For months I have been talking about opening a new shop. Realistically I can't design more patterns right now, my littles need me too much, but I do need a creative outlet. My friend Melissa encouraged me to get my feet wet with an Instagram shop! Yes! It will be a handmade/natural mama shop where I will list things as I make/get them. The shop opens tomorrow or Saturday!! I have had so much fun with this, and most importantly, I'm feeling so much better! If you want to check it out follow me on Instagram @ vintage_hippie_mama!
I'm so glad to be me again!!!! Thanks for sticking with me friends!! xo, Sam

I am so glad to see you posting again! So sorry to hear of your battle with depression.
I have just started reading about saffron and how it can be effective to help with depression. I'd love to discuss this with you since you have natural remedy experience. heatherlirettearbonne at gmail dot com

Everything is adorable, I would love to sell things like that, but finding affordable tags and becoming compliant are pretty time consuming. Love that you are refreshed and whole again.
