A Tiny Rocket
Hello! My name is Erika. I’m in love with making art, collecting old things & chasing after my two kiddos. This blog is a peek into my happy accidents & plots of total world domination.

Hi! My name is Erika and this blog is my place where I keep my inspiration, my favorite memories and most of all, my journey of makings things in both life and art. I am a self taught oil painter and I took the plunge to leave my corporate job in order to paint full time. I show my artwork around town and have been featured in the last four seasons of the television show, “Portlandia.” I am a mommy to my daughter Nora, who was born 7/11/12 and baby Everett, who was born 11/11/14. I have a bearded husband named Tim and have two pretty mischievous pugs. I believe in magic dust and that creativity lives and grows all around us. My secret wish is to lead the best life possible and to live on fast forward.

Adventures in Mamahood
A new mama. Navigating life, love, work, workouts and everything in between.

Hi. I’m Whitney and I live in Portland, OR with my husband Chris, dog Chance and daughter Garrity. Being a mama is absolute the best thing in the entire world. Seriously. Besides being a mama, I’m also a wife, an employee, a dog mom, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a cook…
Trying to “have it all” is tough, especially when somehow in all of that I need to find time to lose the last remaining pounds of pregnancy weight.
But I’m loving every minute of this crazy, beautiful life and wouldn’t trade one single second of it.

Healthy Disney Family
Living a healthy, active lifestyle with a little Disney magic sprinkled in

Hello, I’m Denise! I’m a PR friendly work at home mom blogger, bargain shopper, Disney fanatic, home cook, volunteer, and distance runner (26.2 x2, 13.1 x4, 10k x3, and lots of 5k’s).

I also know a little about weight loss. My dream of running my first Half Marathon at Disneyland at my goal weight had a lot to do with the motivation to lose weight, as well as being a healthier and happier person, mom and wife. With sheer determination, cleaner eating and exercise, I lost 110 pounds after the birth of my son. It wasn’t easy but it sure was worth it!

Before I became a work at home mom, I worked in the culinary industry. I still love to cook and now I create new healthier, lower calorie versions of recipes that are still full of flavor and delicious!

I also love getting deals and bargain shopping. I share my favorite tips, links and coupons on the blog with you too.

Modest Mess is a humor blog created by Megan Premo. She’s a woman, mother, wife and longshoreman-not always in that order. It’s written for people who don’t mind salty language, who like hearing about other lives that might be as crazy as theirs. Stories about trying (and failing) to keep the house clean, surviving parenting with 50/50 custody, DIY crafts, figuring out how to dress in clothes that look good (but still stand up to Cheetoh-fingers and dog hair), swearing and run-on sentences abound.

Northwest Nanny
Northwest Nanny
Want to do some painting projects with your toddler but you’re afraid of the mess? We have some super fun ideas that are definitely toddler approved. But first, you need to prepare the space. Old plastic table cloths, shower curtains and disposable drop cloths all work well for both the work table and the floor around it. An art smock or old shirt will suit your toddler well. You can even have him work in just his underwear. Add a squirt of Dawn dish detergent to your paints to make them washable. And now we’re ready for some fun but not too messy art projects for toddlers.

Northwest Nannies Institute is a career school specializing in early childhood education. Northwest Nannies Childcare Service is a long term (full and part time) and temporary childcare placement agency.The blog shares projects for children.

The Dirty Boots Project
Helping kids and parents bond and build stronger connections with each other via classes, resources and books for personal growth, wellness, strong leadership skills, and to develop a sense of responsibility and dedication to our environment.

The project aims to get kids outside and connected to nature. We increasingly have become disconnected from nature, and as a result have seen a decrease in health, esteem, personal strength, and sense of responsibility for the world that we live in. This program through classes, ebooks, articles, resources and collected research for parents to explore, seeks to educate, inspire and empower both kids and their parents to restructure priorities to integrate nature back into their lives. Time spent in nature has shown positive results in the areas oaf relationship building, positive self-esteem development, relief in symptoms related to autism, add and ADHD, depression and anxiety. We can learn though these classes, and information provided, just how to include nature in our lives, for our benefit. This program seeks to strengthen the bonds between parent and child, parent and nature, and child and nature. it also seeks to strengthen the bonds of our community and its dedication to nature.

Wasabi Honey Bee
Between running a pie truck and painting pictures, rallying three rambunctious children and sneaking moments to savor every last drop of tea in my cup, I write this mini log of what I love to do best—keep my hands busy making something . . .

MARICA NATALI THOMPSON is a make-it-yourself enthusiast. She has spent years refining the art of “do it your own way.” From painting to sewing, cooking to woodworking, learning from doing has always been a staple in her diet.

Starting a family young, and constantly keeping up with the needs of three growing kids, has only made her more inspired to squeeze all the juice she can out of every last odd, end and free moment she can conjure.

Marica Natali Thompson is also the author of Oh My Sweet Baby and One Treat After Another, Escargot Books and Music, as well as the illustrator of The Blue Heron Ranch Cookbook, North Atlantic Books. She grew up in the mountains outside of Ojai, CA, and now resides in Portland, OR. She currently is running a pie truck with her husband where she spends oh so many hours rolling out dough for both sweet and savory treats.
