|The new Zaps Threads Transcend Tee|
Apparently I've passed my genes down.
The economy took its toll on our business about five or six years ago and shifted our work in such a way that being a full time mom and working for our design business was just not possible. I had to choose. But everyone knows that trying to choose between your passion and your family is a total lose-lose situation. If you have no room to explore your passion its hard to be a good parent or spouse. The decision to leave our business not knowing if I would ever be able to come back was a tough one. The learning curve was just so steep.
So I chose to be a full time mom.

with the itty, bitty "k"
Don't get me wrong. I love my boys with every cell in my body. Its just that without a way to express my creativity I was starting to feel stifled, smothered, and a bit rebellious. I took up barefoot running as a way to get back into running to help alleviate some of that tension, and although it led me back to my passion for running it wasn't enough.
So I started blogging as a way to express my frustrations, failures, successes, and as a way to hold myself accountable for my transition to barefoot. But as it turns out, this blog has become another creative space; a way for me to express so much more, in my own voice, with my own language and as a way for me to put myself out there, raw and exposed... and to own that.
But, art and design is also my passion and to live without it is like living numb.

Its not much, but it makes me happy. Between that and running I'm in my happy space again and it feels good. And now that the kids are in school full time I'm back to work as well.
So to combine my passions at The 2013 Born To Run Ultra Marathon, was a blast. I was so stoked to vend there this year. I had my Zaps Threads booth set up with shirts for sale for men and women. I picked out two of my most popular designs and revealed a third design, The Transcend Tee, while I was there. I was shocked to discover that people actually knew me, from either my blog or randomly running across Zaps Threads on the internet. Who knew? I haven't really done much to promote this little biz, but it felt good that my little bizniz was known in a tiny way.

And each shirt had my itty, bitty signature "k" on it somewhere.
