Name: Susan Beal
Excerpt from Craft Corps (Chapter 16):
“VH: How do you handle juggling craft with parenthood?
SB: It’s going pretty well. There are definitely some limits on my time that weren’t there before. I’m sure you can relate–there are some days that you don’t go outside, or you barely stop to eat because you’re busy writing or making something. It kind of consumes your whole life. With a baby, you really do have to become more balanced, even though it’s not necessarily restful. It definitely gets me out of my hard-core, deadline oriented pattern. I find it so much fun to take time to play with her when she’s just waking up from a nap, and I’ve gotten something done while she was asleep–then I have her all over again. It’s a real treat coming back to her after that break.
It’s hard though, saying no to projects. It’s been a real gift to be able to contribute to other people’s projects, or to do things that are more time and labor intensive, but I’ve had to say no to some things I wouldn’t have had to a year ago. There are some real advantages to focusing on creative outlets outside your own work, like raising a baby and doing things that are more focused on the household.”
