Melanie from It Happens in a Blink ~ DIY/Crafts Contributor
Hi! I’m Melanie, and I blog over at It Happens in a Blink. As a CRA to the Z, busy mom to a preschooler and triplet baby boys, I know what it’s like to be short on time and high on stress. I find daily ways to sneak creativity into my life, and my blog is all about sharing that with you. Over at It Happens in a Blink, my readers enjoy the easiest recipes on the planet, quick crafts to keep the kids occupied, and sewing/DIY projects for those with beginner to intermediate experience levels. I also share the products and brands that I have found to be the most advantageous to a mom of four, and I reward my readers with fun giveaways! Sometimes I even get a little crazy and show a glimpse into my mom of multiples life. On a personal level, I enjoy sewing and cooking the most. I have way too many crafting gadgets- including 2 sewing machines, a serger, a Cricut, and a Silhouette. Now if I could only find the time to use them all!

Janice from Maddie Moes ~ Sewing Contributor
I am Janice Armstrong. I am a wife, mum, daughter, sister and friend, living in Belfast, N. Ireland…a wee corner of a very beautiful land. I am very much a ‘sewer in progress’ and a lover of all things handmade. Over the past few years I have rediscovered a love of sewing and stitching, using scraps and ends of fabric to create something new, something unique. Aspiring to be creative with the little things I have…content to adapt, mend and create. I am a novice blogger, dipping my toes into a big blogging world but have really loved the journey so far! I blog at Maddie Moes, where I journal the many things which inspire me…the things that are made, that are crafted and thought over, and, in the midst of all this – the thoughts, dreams and heartaches that have been shared…the people who are a part of life, those who have helped to shape and inspire…the everyday, seeing the beauty of where you are and what you have. Being creative. Being content. You connect with Janice on her blog, pinterest & instagram.

Zainab from Blahnik Baker ~ Recipe Contributor
Zainab is a newlywed, Neuroscience student who loves baking just as much as she obsesses over Manolo Blahnik heels. She lives in Central NY with her husband where she enjoys entertaining, shopping (more like stalking shoes) and long walks at the park that were meant to be runs. She shares her passion for baking and creating easy yet elegant desserts for every occasion over on her blog, Blahnik Baker. You can connect with Zainab over on her blog, facebook, twitter, pinterest & instagram.
Molly from Just a Little Creativity ~ Kid Craft Contributor
I’m Molly, a Christian mom of five (ages preschool to high school) in warm sunny Florida. I’ve been selling custom, hand painted children’s art in my Etsy shop, MyArtsyBaby, since 2008. I jumped into my blog, Just a Little Creativity, at the very end of 2010, and I’m officially addicted. I love doing DIY and craft projects, especially ones that involve the kids. I’m also an avid reader, so I enjoy doing book reviews as well (yes, I was the kid who liked book reports). I’m not a self proclaimed fashionista or interior designer, but I know what I like, so I’ll occasionally post product reviews on things I love that I think other moms like me will love too. At Just a Little Creativity, I share projects for skill levels of all kinds, fun projects for kids, and funny life stories. I also present book and product reviews and giveaways that are relevant to my readers. In other words, here, I get to share a little bit of lots of things I love. I write fair, honest reviews, and I’m passionate about good products for families and kids, and strive to pass on that passion to my readers and friends. You can connect with Molly on her blog, facebook, twitter, pinterest, google + & blog lovin’.
Bre from Average But Inspired ~ DIY/Crafts Contributor
Hi! I’m Bre – a full-time mom, part-time lawyer and now (because I didn’t have enough to do already), a blogger. I dabble in all things domestic, and document the results of my craft, cooking, family and home decor experiments at Average But Inspired. Although my projects don’t always turn out as planned, the creative process leaves me feeling inspired, and I hope to share some of that inspiration with you through my blog. I hope you’ll check it out! You can connect with Bre on her blog, facebook, pinterest & twitter.

Bonnie from The Pin Junkie ~ DIY/Crafts Contributor
HI! I’m Bonnie and I’m completely and happily addicted to Pinterest. I blog about the recipes, crafts, and home improvement projects I do that are inspired by Pinterest. I have a passion for pinning and have collected thousand of ideas on my Pinterest boards. I quickly realized that I didn’t want my boards to be a collection of pretty pictures and wishful thinking. I wanted my boards to be true inspiration boards that inspired doing and creating. Once I started doing the things I pinned, I wanted to share them with everyone and my blog The Pin Junkie was born! You can connect with Bonnie on her blog, pinterest & facebook.
Sarah from The Crazy Tailor ~ Sewing Contributor
Hi, I’m Sarah! I’m a SAHM to two little munchkins, and the wife of an amazing husband! I’ll admit that although I have tailoring experience, I MUCH prefer sewing little clothes for my kiddos! Also, a good upcycle makes my day….or a leisurely stroll through a thrift store! You’ll find little bits about everything on my blog; parties, food, crafting, but mostly sewing. It’s what I love! You can connect with Sarah on her blog & pinterest.
Please visit & show some love to these fabulous ladies,
and get ready to meet all of them starting in January. 🙂
