About Holli

Hello everyone. I live in Battle Ground Washington and am a mommy to 3 boys and one baby girl ages 10 on down. We have also lived in Summerville SC, Jacksonville FL and Seattle WA. My husbands job allows us to be nomads. I am definitely a blue collar mommy. We live on a very strict budget so I am always looking for double duty items and great consignment stores. I am not sure if my children are crazy or if it is really me that lost my sanity along time ago. There is never a dull moment in my house. As for me, I work as a freelance writer, artist, and small business consultant. In the 30 - 45 seconds of free time I get a day I like to read, draw, and do word puzzles.

rachel1A Mom Knows Contributor

About Rachel B

I am currently a Stay at Home Mom of 2 wonderful kids. Before I had kids I worked as a Photographer and then a Contract Administrator. Now I spend my days being a room mom, managing my daughter's food allergies (peanuts and tree nuts), and overseeing homework. I have discovered a joy for running, having completed five 5K races, and have a whole new outlook on being fit and staying fit. Because of my daughter's food allergies, I have taken up cooking from scratch and find that it is not as hard as I imagined. I still enjoy curling up with a good book (am in search of a good book group), creating things (whether it be handmade cards, themed parties, holiday decorations, crafts for school, gifts for friends and family), and photographing and documenting our daily lives through scrapbooks and my blog, Unscripted.

About Ann

After working over 10 years as an art director at the Walt Disney Studios, I became a stay-at-home mom. My experience as a first-time mom inspired me to publish a book called "Quick Tips For First-Time Moms: A Simple and Practical Guide to Finding Balance". I love using my creativity to solve problems. From organization to recycling, parenting to party planning, I continue to find new interests and inspirations through spending time with my child.
emilyA Mom Knows Contributor

About Emily

Hi! My name is Emily, and I am an every-day, average girl who likes to dream big. I always get these wild ideas (like writing a book or getting a pet pig) that I talk about ceaselessly for days. I pursue the idea for a while and then I get bored with it. I haven't quite figured out why I do that! I am an adorer of organizing, an avid researcher of random things that interest me, a lover of DIY projects, a reader, a wanna-be writer, an iphoneographer, and a completely addicted bargain shopper. But, most of all, I am passionate about my Savior, Jesus Christ. He has forever changed my life, and I desire to glorify him through everything that I do. Like I said before, I'm as normal as they come, but my life got a lot more interesting and exciting when I married my husband, Jeffrey, in July of 2009. In December of 2010, we embarked on an adventure and packed our bags and moved from a tiny town in North East Wisconsin to the Tulsa, OK area. There have been a lot of changes in our life, and my blog is all about us adjusting and putting down our roots in Tulsa.

About Annie

Once upon a time I taught second grade and preschool. Now I have three little princesses and spend a lot of time singing Disney songs, painting fingernails, moderating dramatic tantrums, reading Pinkalicious, having spontaneous dance parties and fixing lots of little girl hair. I teach piano lessons, love a good book and sitting with my husband at night watching t.v. My passion is the beach and I would like to be living my passion much more frequently.
megA Mom Knows Contributor

About Meg

I'm the mom of two crazy, wonderful munchkins, and when I'm not trying to keep up with them, I enjoy a little bit of everything from photography and writing to crafts of any kind. I am a little nuts about being organized and checking off to-do lists (although I'm surprisingly bad at keeping my house in order). I have a severe sugar addiction, and when it comes to cooking, I could burn anything, including water. I'm a dental wife, and before I took on my role as mom, I was a journalist and a dancer.
natalieA Mom Knows Contributor

About Natalie

I currently run a household of 5! In my spare time I teach fitness classes, bake and try to squeeze some skiing or some guilty TV time! My mind is always going crazy with projects for the home, thanks to pinterest, or fitness routines for my classes. I love to be active but I also love my relaxing time!
alisonA Mom Knows Contributor

About Alison

I'm a Cincinnati-based freelance writer and a mom to my (fun and awesome) 3 and 4-year-old daughters. I spend my days trying in vain to keep our house clean and answering age-old questions such as "is it OK to stick your tongue out at someone if she says she doesn't like your socks?" Really though, I love the preschool age! My husband Steve and I also have a 16-year-old dog (that acts like a puppy) and five funny, sometimes-annoying, adorable cats. I like doing crafts, sewing, reading, and rehabbing secondhand furniture - check out my blog at www.secondhandfancy.wordpress.com.

rachelabA Mom Knows Contributor

About Rachel A. B.

I am 100% mom and wife, 25% speech-language pathologist, 13% avid reader/crafter/blogger/pretend photographer, and 0% mathematician . I am always optimistic, sometimes funny, often tired, and never ready to wake up in the morning. I would love to travel the world, re-learn Spanish, write a novel and win the lottery. I am pretty sure I would be a great millionaire.

sarahA Mom Knows Contributor

About Sarah

I'm Sarah. I'm a mom to two little boys, ages 4 and 3 months. I was a Clinical Laboratory Scientist (in my "other life", before kids.) I gave up working long hours, nights, weekends and holidays at the hospital to work long hours, nights, weekends and holidays at home with my family, and I couldn't be happier about it. My husband accuses me of having arts and crafts ADD...because I just can't seem to stick to one hobby. I want to learn to do it all!
camiA Mom Knows Contributor

About Cami

I am learning how to be a mother of three and enjoying the process (most of the time!). In those dreamy days of my past life when I had hobbies, I enjoyed crafting, sewing, reading, cooking and sleeping. I'm told those days will return again. In the meantime, I'll enjoy kissing the sticky faces of my three munchkins.
