Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog. This is my first attempt at the world of blogging so bear with me. First, quick introduction. Hi! My name is Holly and I am a wife, mother of 3, designer, crafter business women, and all the jobs that come with being a mom.
(this is an old pic. we don’t have a new one yet with all 3 boys)
Why did I decide to start a blog? I have always loved writing but life got in the way and I didn’t get a chance to do it so much. Ever since I had my kids I have had lots of stories and lots of things that I wish I would have heard or wish I would have known before xy or z happened. I want to share these stories with anyone who wants to listen. I call them stories, not advice, because everyone is different, every parent, every marriage every situation is different. I can only share what I know and what works (or failed horribly for me).
I also do a lot of crafting and am trying to start a mini homestead and am going to be posting about things that I have done and tried along with looking for opinions from YOU on what might work better. I have a ton of different interests and sometimes it’s hard consolidating to only one thing I do, so, I may jump all over the place at times, but that makes life interesting!
Why the feathered mamma? Well obviously I am a mamma (a pretty awesome one at that) but sometimes I don’t feel so awesome. Sometimes I feel totally crazy, like someone ruffled my feathers and left me all out of sorts and I have to spend half the day trying to put things back together. So rather than being a crazy mamma or a ruffled mamma (which don’t leave the best connotations) I choose Feathered mamma. The optimistic side to that is that a feather is made up of many little parts and there are many feathers needed to work together to make a bird fly. I have so many interests and things that make me, me, I have multiple feathers to give me wings. (ok, a little cheesy but true)
Finally, I started this blog as something fun to do; a way to connect with other people that I may not have the chance to in person. So, feel free to comment and interact and I will do my best to get back to you. My goal is to post at least once a week so if I don’t get back to you right away have some patience.
Thanks again for stopping by and enjoy!
