Personal: Interview on Maker Mama

To celebrate Mother's Day Maker Mama is running a month of interviews with "crafty mamas" and asked me to participate.

Amy is quite the crafty mama herself! She's a mother of four who has a love for things handmade, especially if they are environmentally conscious. She writes sensitively about how to make better choices for our environment and ourselves. And she had some thought-provoking questions for me about how creating and motherhood co-exist.

I am always so flattered when someone wants to ask me some questions about my life and the things I make. I find the interview process rewarding in itself too because it gives me the opportunity to think about what motivates me and whether or not I am making the best choices as a mother and a creator. You can read my interview here.

I am looking forward to hearing from the other mamas she has lined up this month. Thanks, Amy!

Hi Anneliese, I am so pleased to hear about the interview you did, it is so nice to be appreciated, and you totally deserve it.

Funnily enough, I was going to ask you yesterday if you would like to participate in my 'Sunday Session' interviews with inspirational bloggers(I got distracted with little people)

You may be all 'questioned out' but if you could, I sure my readers would love hear about you.

take care

what a great interview! I really enjoyed reading it nad learning more about you. I also craft/sew after the boys (the husband and toddler) go to bed. I'm a night owl and it's the only time to get things done! And the creative outlet is key for my sanity!!! Thanks for sharing!

Hi Anneliese,

I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy reading your blog. I am a mother of a beautiful 6 month old daughter and on my mat leave I've been inspired by your blog to start exploring my creative side. I came across your blog while looking for crochet patterns and now regularly come to your site to see what else you've been up to. You've also inspired me to take up sewing! It's so nice to have a creative outlet. I also started making baby hair clips -

Thank you for all your work and for posting your patterns!
