Description: This is my entry in the Womens Day Toile contest. I hope you enjoy it and I thank you for stopping by. I think working moms deserve to have a toile all to themselves for Womens Day! Throughout history, working moms have balanced both hard work outside the home and raising future generations in the home. How they manage both is a mystery to me, not having had children, I can't even imagine this! I have friends that are working moms and they are always so exhausted!!!! To me, you are all remarkable women. So here is a toile that I hope will bring a smile to a working mama out there! Here we have an exhausted working mom fast asleep and drooling at her desk at work (she's just so tired...) ~ and it is only 9:00 am! Her smartphone rings and it is her youngun' not understanding why mom is no longer listening. The sign on the back wall says: WORK RULES: No sleeping at desk. No drooling at desk. No personal calls. :o) All hand drawn by me digitally. This design is available as fabric, wallpaper, decals and gift wrap. Thank you!

vanilla...

vanillabeandesigns says: So funny and such a great commentary! I LOVE that you chose to highlight the working mother rather than choosing a more lofty and famous woman (scientist, inventor, etc.) that few of us can really relate to. We can ALL relate to this gal, drooling on her desk! Way to go, Amy!
