From making babies to making wall art. Working mum Danielle Hardy chats to Bluecaravan about her commitment to being a stay at home mum, and how she built successful business Urban Walls around a busy family life.
I made two super-cute babies and was working my butt off as a graphic and web designer to be able to work from home. I TOTALLY didn’t see myself doing this full-time but I am SO thankful that it grew and organically happened for me to be able to be mom and business lady :)
The turning point came when my maternity leave was up… I couldn’t justify going to work and putting my babies in daycare when I was capable of working from home. It’s definitely not easy to balance and I have a ton of late nights/early mornings but I am so thankful with the choice that I made to take a leap of faith and believe that I could do this from home and it be successful.
My advice to other young designers is to network with other people in the field, make great connections, believe in yourself and your creativity, don’t be afraid to take risks!!!
When I’m not working… it’s not very glamorous! Lots of diapers, walks to the park, endless amounts of laundry, and making gentlemen out of my boys takes up the majority of my time
My husband would describe me as Ambitious, Sarcastic, Persistent, Adventurous, Loyal
I couldn’t live without my family – our last name is Hardy so I refer to the all of them as my “Hardyboys”. I couldn’t survive without them.
Right now I’m listening to Adele.
