About this blog:

I’m a perfectionist.  I’m also extremely practical.  I’m an oxymoron.  I’ve discovered that being a perfectionist simply isn’t practical.  Sometimes that causes me to simply give up, because I can’t meet my own standards.    This blog is about finding the balance, fighting the perfectionism, and accepting the product of my best efforts without feeling guilty that it isn’t perfect.  You’ll see this journey through the lens of daily life with three children and a mom who finds time for her own pursuits…generally in the middle of the night! I have a super sweet, supportive husband, too, but he doesn’t consider himself blog material, so you won’t see much of him in this space. 🙂

The title “The Practical Perfeccionista” also denotes the bilingualism of my household; perfeccionista = a female perfectionist in Spanish, which we speak fluently along with English.  I’m interested in all things bilingual, and homeschool in both languages (though primarily in Spanish in the youngest years).  If you want to follow along with our homeschooling adventures, you can find us at School en casa.

  1. Just a reply to your question about my pincushion. I couldn’t email since you are a “no reply” commenter on Blogger. I adore that pincushion too! It was made for me by PinkPunkBoutique in a Flickr swap. You can find the pattern in Anna Maria Horner’s book, Seams to Me.
