Being a Mom is HARD!
It is the most challenging thing you will ever do in this life … and the most rewarding!
It doesn’t matter which parenting style you adopt, whether you’re a stay at home mom or a working mom, what city or area you live in or what the colour of your skin is, you are a mother first, always. We all are.
Finding a balance between the responsibilities we have, and the roles we play every day, can be one of the toughest things to figure out in this Mom-life.
So, we’re here to tell you, show you, and shout it out loud; YOU ARE NOT ALONE, MOM! We’re all in this together.
“It takes a village”, the saying goes … so welcome to the village. You have found your tribe.
A tribe of Mom’s who have had enough of the ‘Mine’s already walking/talking/writing the alphabet/learning a foreign language’ routine. Who are honest with each other about everything – the good, the bad and the ugly …
We are here to help each other see the beauty in things again. In each other. In the ordinary and every day. We’re here to carry each other when we feel too exhausted to carry on. We’re here to laugh together. A lot. At the crazy, ridiculous parts of this Mom-life. We’re here to help each other re-discover ourselves, and our passions. And to inspire each other to be the absolute best YOU can be! We’re here for each other!
So, sprinkle that glitter on your life, Mom … we’re with you every ‘shake’ of the way.
Meet the Team :
Ilze : This crafty Mom of two, a blue-eyed-princess-with-attitude and a terror-raising-cutest-thing-alive has an eye for practical DIY solutions and crafty, fanciful projects for your home and kids rooms. She can cook up a storm and is quite the baker as well! Armed with a great sense of humour and a heart of gold, she will be wowing your socks off!
Estelle : A wise, old soul with a young heart and creative, carefree spirit – and a teenager to keep her on her toes! She is as soulful as they come and has the ability to see the profound and beautiful in ordinary things – and has the talent to capture that and so much more through her lens. She will always be there with a wise word or two of encouragement that will have you back on your feet in no time! Add to that a sharp mind and (amazing) finance skills and she can run the freaking world 🙂
Sterna : With two boys (three if you count her husband – which she does) and a brand new pink-foot who’s everyone’s boss (even the dogs) she’s the first one to admit that life can be crazy … but that’s why we’re allowed wine! A self-confessed DIY junkie, with a super handy hubby, she will make organising your house (every room!) something you will look forward to! a Wanne-be baker and writer, with sarcasm instead of tact, she will keep you ‘oohing’ and ‘aahing’ or laughing out loud with her projects. ‘Loving pretty things does not make you superficial’.
The Judges consist of boys and girls (some the teams own, some borrowed from family) between the ages of 2 and 15. Their opinions and reactions to projects will be un-edited and truthful – if they didn’t like it, we’ll say so 🙂
