Home Jobs by MOM gives that little push you need to become that DIYer you watch on tv. To create that mouthwatering entrée you’ve been dying to make. To be who you want to be REALLY ARE.

You’ll learn how to pick out the perfect gift by knowing the ins and outs of so much swag while riding on the rollercoaster of life called parenthood.

Home Jobs by MOM started as a way add depth to my “stay-at-home mom trying to contribute financially” persona. At the time I had been working from home for a couple years but wanted to venture further into the social aspect (Adult conversations. Yay!) of the internet. Enter blogging. Blogging has opened up so many opportunities for my family and I while enriching our lives. I’m now more motivated to create things for my family (and others) whether it be a homemade cookie recipe or the ability to provide a rundown of a really cool product in a jiff.

I love being a devoted wife and quirky mother. It is who I am. That’s not saying I can’t be that crafty genius want to be graphic designer (Wait that’s my father! Well, if you count being a graphic designer for over 40 years a wannabe.) too. None of us are one trick ponies.

All that’s needed is motivation. and time.
