I am thrilled to share with you the series of guest posts appearing here in the coming weeks, as I take a little extra time to settle in and soak up my family and the new life among us. "Soulful Mothering" is a series of written words, photographs, craft projects and thoughts on mothering from some of my favorite ladies on the web. I'm so grateful to each of them for sharing their time with me, and their hearts and words in this space. I have been inspired by the gifts they've shared, and I'm sure you will too. Enjoy!

I am so honored to be invited as a guest blogger here. Visiting this lovely, special place is the way I often start my day. Our three daughters are grown now, but I so enjoy the sentimental rewind as I read Amanda's heartfelt words and observe the Soule family becoming. For me, mothering is absolutely the most defining, delightful and important adventure of my life. That includes all the moments that inspired something handmade. Nothing like a baby for inspiration!
1. Click here to download the PDF pattern from my blog. Print it out on an 8.5 x 11 sheet of copy paper. You could also enlarge it further for a larger size. This size makes a bib for a newborn to 3 months. I think it would be mighty sweet on a tote, sling or onesie too!
Born and educated in St. Louis, Charlotte raised three artistic daughters in a bright pink house in Chicago. Now, she and her husband live in the lower Hudson River Valley of New York, happy to have their girls (and their guys) nearby.
