Welcome to The Mom Creative

by jessicaturner on July 3, 2009

After months of planning, The Mom Creative is here! Don’t worry, nothing is really changing except the name. :)

When I started my blog more than three years ago, it was mostly because so many scrapbookers that I admired had blogs and I thought it would be fun. Little did I know how much it would rock my world.

Since I became a mom, this blog has really evolved to be a melting pot of much more than scrapbooking. There’s now talk of breastfeeding, diapers, baby products, mommy guilt. Videos. Weekly giveaways.

So I decided the blog needed a new name.

I brainstormed for weeks. Family and friends shared their thoughts. And finally, the perfect name was formed: The Mom Creative. I love it because it is about more than me and my family, though we are the foundation of it. It is about you and your journeys as mothers, sisters and friends. And it is about getting creative too.

My logo and new design was created by the AMAZING Danielle at The Design Girl. Check out her work for awesome custom and pre-made blog templates, free wallpapers and blinkies, stationery and more. She is also launching digital scrapbooking products soon. She is soooo sweet and such a pleasure to work with. I can’t say enough great things about her. Check out her blog and become a follower – she is always is offering great sales and helping charities. I love her heart. (And she is doing several giveaways right now for you freebie lovers).

So welcome to my new blog. I hope you like it. Thanks for taking time to stop by and be a part of this community. I appreciate you all.

Jess… this is AMAZING!!! I love the name, the look, the feel. Danielle did a great job and it's just so YOU.

Man, even though I'm older than you I so want to be cool like you when I grow up :)

[ok, now that I say that I realize I have no idea how old you are… that's so odd to me that I don't know that little fact about you.]

LOVE it, Jess!! :) It's super cute and fun! Can I still leave your other button up and just add this one? I don't want to get rid of your cute family picture on my blog?!?!? :)

Too fun! I like the new look! I've enjoyed reading your blog for quite some time now, and you are still at the top of my blog reading list!

Your new look is FANTASTIC! Wowzers…

It's beautiful! I love it! I do miss your name being in the title, though. :)

I was just going through my HUGE list of favourite blogs, deleting ones that no longer exist and ones that I don't really read. I was thinking "what makes me want to read a blog?" Answers like "mix of posts", "clean simple look" and "a great blog header" came to mind.

Then I check your blog (rest assured you are in my ALL TIME FAVOURITES folder ), for probably the 6th time today as it's Friday and I'm NOT doing any work (SAHM) and your new look is here!! You checked all my boxes of why I continue to read.

I love the pink and the multi-coloured polka dots! x

WOW, the new look is amazing! =) I haven't been by in a while, but I usually catch up in my reader. I'll have to come by in person more often to drool all over the new look! =)

Yeah! I love the new look. Simple. Clean. Fun. Just love it. I read the other comments and we all seem to be in agreement. On a side note, 'gitz' sounds hilarious. Aren't blog friends great :)

I love your new design, and the professional way it's all set up to manage your review and Southwest hats, etc. Very cool! (Happy early birthday to Elias!)
