Welcome! My name is Stefanie W Callahan and I am the founder/owner of SWC Creations Company (www. swccreationscompany. com) and a full-time work-from-home mom with an 8-month-old son. I have been a craft artist and small business owner for about 4 years, but have only been doing it full-time now since Fall 2007.....when I found out I was pregnant with my son, Nathan. My husband and I had been trying to conceive a baby for over 10 years, unsuccessfully, after suffering a miscarriage in 1996....and this little miracle came out of nowhere after we had long given up on the hopes of a child of our own! I immediately made the decision that after waiting for this miracle for SO long, I simply just would NOT be able to go back to work outside of the home and leave my baby boy behind. I began to pour all of my time and energy into my business (that up until then, had really just been more of a small, money-earning hobby), and I would like to believe that today, I have been somewhat successful at balancing the daily responsibilities of my work and my home/family. Based upon some of my experiences, I decided to start this group!

The purpose of The Crafty Moms Group is to share my work-from-home-mom experiences with you, and maybe give a little guidance along the way.

I would like to recruit as many "artisan" mothers to this group as possible and get everyone to interact and give input, so we are virtually all helping to support one another in our mission as craft artists and as mothers! I really would like to take this time to encourage you to be as active as possible with this group----START POSTING your stories/experiences to our bulletin boards and blogs right away----let's all start helping each other!!! Best of all, THIS HELP/GROUP IS FREE----so what are you waiting for!!Thanks so much for stopping by, and for your participation! ~~~Stef

yeah i have to say you havent had much success in the way of people responding to some of your posts, must be quite frustrating as the admin of this community! I think this group is a great idea and i look forward to offering ideas and suggestions to as many mums that need them as i always have ideas LOL sometimes its hard to peg them down! One of the many things i love about becoming a mummy is being able to use my crafty gifts in ways in which my boys and i can benefit or bond- i try to do at least one form if not a couple of sessions of art and craft a week at home with my toddler- today we did roller painting. Found these little sponge rollers with stars etc on them and it gave me the idea to make my own stamps- i'll just have to buy some sponges and get some little pieces of wood and then i can glue them on and we can make what ever shapes we like :) Today i also got my boy to paint the first two letters of his name, so they can be hung on his door. I was in cheap as cheaps the other day and almost salivating from the possibilities of the craft section and i picked up some wooden letters for a couple of dollars each and thought, what a GREAT idea. He loved it and has always loved the fact i will readily display all his work. Its very important that they feel like their efforts are validated in some way :) Anyways today was the first day i have really had a chance to look at this group, i shall be checking back from time to time.

In love, light and craft,
chelle :)
